Personal Description:

My name is Jean and I am a fully qualified primary school teacher. I am hardworking, enthusiastic, and committed to my students. I am friendly and approachable and ensure that I make the children that I work with feel valued and respected. I have experience teaching across all areas of the curriculum and I have a particular interest in the learning of language having studied French and Spanish at University. I have experience of working with children from primary 1 up to primary 7 and I differentiate my approach to ensure that I provide a level of teaching that is achievable, yet challenging for the children with whom I work.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of teaching in a variety of settings and began my teaching career as an English Language Assistant in Spain. I found this an extremely rewarding experience and the challenges that I faced helped me to develop excellent communication skills. Throughout my time at university I gained teaching experience at several different stages in a range of educational establishments. I taught all subjects across the curriculum in a primary 7, primary 3/2, and the nursery setting. After graduation I completed a successful probationary year teaching a composite primary 2/1 class. This gave me further experience at teaching key literacy and numeracy skills at the early stages. This session I have had the responsibility of teaching across all classes as the non class contact time teacher, allowing me to gain further experience at teaching across a wide range of ages and abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

The initial step in my teaching is evaluating where the child is at within their learning. It is of key importance to identify strengths, and areas for development in order to provide the most valuable help. I am a keen advocate of active learning, believing that children make the most progress when they are engaged in their work. In order to ensure that children remain focused and enthused by their learning I use a range of teaching styles and learning activities. I use a balance of teacher lead instruction, educational games, and written tasks. I use formative assessment strategies in order to assess how the child has progressed, and identify any areas that need to be revisited, together with next steps in their learning.
