Janice

Torpoint Tutor

I am currently a supply teacher in Plymouth. I have worked in schools recently doing pastoral work and as a teaching assistant, working in the classroom and also running intervention groups. I am currently on the management committee of a playschool where I am the OFSTED nominated person so am known to OFSTED and have a current DBS certificate. I was a registered child minder and my house was registered with OFSTED. I am Chair of Governors at my children's school. I also help to run a youth group.

Tutoring Experience

I qualified from Marjons in 1999 and after supply teaching in several schools in Plymouth I moved to Kent to teach in a school in Essex. There I mainly taught Year 1 but I also taught SAT's booster classes to Year 6 pupils. Since leaving to have my first child I have privately taught both Key Stage 1 and 2 children as well as children with English as a second language. I have taught children in preparation for the 11+ and most have successfully got into grammar school. I am currently Chair of Governors at my children's school and maintain my knowledge of current teaching practices by regularly attending training courses. I also work in a pre-school so am familiar with the EYFS. My son has been diagnosed with dyslexia so I have been investigating a variety of different teaching techniques and styles to help him, he is also on the most able register at Secondary school so have experience extending children who are able.

Tutoring Approach

I feel that children thrive on positive praise and encouragement. They need to believe they can do it to succeed. I always assess the children first to see their needs and learning styles before deciding on a program of study. I always give an honest analysis of where I feel the child is and what needs to be done for them to achieve their full potential. Small achievable tasks mixed with more challenging activities will give the child a sense of achievement as well as reaching their full potential.
