Hi my name is Laura i am a 27 year old Primary School teacher. I love working with children and helping them progress and achieve their potential. I come from a creative background and have a Fine Art Degree, i like to make learning fun and enjoyable as this is how it should be. I believe in challenge and look forward to helping more children with their learning.
I have been teaching for 2 years. I have taught Reception for 2 years and will be teaching Reception again in September. I love EYFS as it is the basis of learning to read and write and it is wonderful watching the children confidence grow. I work in an EAL school and have a lot of experience in teaching children who don't speak english.
I also teach at a Saturday School in Edgware, i currently each a year 1 class. During this teaching time i teach one hour of maths and one hour of english, these sessions are aimed to help children with areas of learning they are less confident in. I love helping children develop and make progress. During my teacher training i trained 5-11 and have experience teaching year 3 and year 5. I also run my own art club after school, i love being creative and helping children express their creativity.
I believe that tutoring and prove tuition can make a big difference. My dad has been a Maths tutor for over 20 years and has helped many people achieve their true potential. I love teaching and really enjoy my job and want to take my practice further. Within EYFS it is a lot of small group work and often i work with children 1:1 , during this time i can really discover the best way to help them learn and give them my full attention. My approach is tutoring is that i really want to make a difference and help your child over come any misconceptions and make them feel confident. I always make learning enjoyable and fun and can't wait to take my teacher practice to a new level.
