I am a fully qualified teacher and tutor with over 20 years worth experience in teaching and tutoring. I love working with pre school and primary aged children and seeing them blossom with confidence. I have also recently been helping my grandson through Phonics testing and SATs.

Tutoring Experience

I ran my pre school for 10 years working with children from 3 years up to school age, implementing the original Desirable Learning Outcomes of the play based early years curriculum. Since then I have spent 10 years teaching in both private and state schools teaching throughout the primary phase.

I have a BA Hons in Early Childhood Education. I have Qualified Teacher Status and am qualified to teach children from Reception through to the end of primary school. I also have a certificate in TEFL and TESOL and am qualified to teach adults.

Tutoring Approach

I am very much a hands on tutor. I believe in working with the children to ensure they understand what they are learning. If this means recapping sometimes then that's fine by me. Although planning is done, flexibility is the key. I have a bagful of resources which cover most things that I teach and the children enjoy using these to embed their learning. I have always been a great believer in that if a child starts off with an open mind and enjoys their learning, then I will help them achieve as much as they can.
