Maths and English Tuition in Truro

I have a genuine passion for teaching. I retired from being a permanent teacher in 2009, and I enjoy working with schools as a bank teacher, sharing my knowledge and skills and learning new initiatives, always keeping up-to-date with strategic changes.

I feel it is important to create a positive learning environment, ensuring that all areas of the class room are structured, and all resources are accessible for independent thinking and learning.

The assessment methods I use are in line with the expectations in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 framework: Learn through play, observations, and indoor activities, outdoor play, questioning and answering, peer assessments and discussion. Furthermore I have experience of read, write ink and phonics.

Tutoring Experience

I am a highly skilled primary teacher who has been teaching across KS2, KS1 & EYFS for the last fifteen years.
I have completed many assignments teaching in a variety of schools across Cornwall, which has shown my ability to develop excellent relationships with children of all levels and abilities. I have taught regularly at Truro Prep School teaching KS2/KS1/EYFS and have more recently finished a fixed term contract with Arch Bishop Benson School teaching Year 5.
I taught for six years at St Michaels School, Truro as the EYFS and KS1 class teacher. #
Throughout my career I have planned, delivered and assessed all areas of the EYFS framework, and more recently followed the new KS1 and KS2 curriculum. I have always achieved good outcomes and evidencing progress within the children’s learning.
