Personal Description:

I am a 51 year old experienced primary school teacher and mother, who loves nothing better than watching children blossom. My interests include family, theatre and country walks. I have a very nurturing approach to teaching and learning and know that a child makes most progress with well matched, individualised and adapted teaching. I give 100 per cent dedication to each and every child I teach, both in the classroom and with one to one tuition.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 20 years experience as a full time Primary School Teacher. Currently, I am a year 4 class teacher in a local primary school. Previously, I have taught all year groups across the primary phase, including year 6. In addition to this, I was employed as a Reading Recovery teacher for 6 years and taught children with dyslexia. With regards to personal tuition, I have successfully prepared students for SATS and entrance exams for private schools; taught children to read; developed students’ skills in Maths and English and, perhaps most importantly, boosted confidence!

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to ascertain what your child already knows and then from there, plan lessons based on what the next steps for learning are. The way I teach is highly personalised to suit your child’s needs. I have over 20 years experience of teaching children English and Maths from ages 3 to 11 years and have also taught children with dyslexia and SEN up to age 15 years. I have a wealth of knowledge, skills and strategies to draw upon, in addition to current expertise in the New National Curriculum as taught in schools today.
