Home Tuition for Maths and English in Northallerton

Having taught primary-age children in North Yorkshire schools for 21 years, I can help your child reach their potential through regular, high-quality personal tutoring. I enjoy seeing children grow in confidence as they develop new skills and understanding, particularly with areas they found challenging in the past. I can provide sessions of 45 or 60 minutes to suit different ages and needs. There are no costs for travel (up to fifteen minutes) or for resources used and I offer a discount for block bookings.
I am married and a dad to three children, who all enjoy family life together and understand the need for a good work ethic and strong core skills. I have a full enhanced CRB (DBS) certificate and full references.

Tutoring Experience

I taught in North Yorkshire primary schools for over 21 years, including 12 as headteacher of a small village school with a substantial teaching commitment. I have taught mixed-age classes of juniors and infants of all abilities, KS2 booster sessions and SEN interventions, in all subjects including reading, writing, spelling and mathematics. As a former headteacher I am fully up-to-date regarding the revised primary curriculum, introduced in September 2014.

Tutoring Approach

We start with a chat on the phone to collect information about your child's strengths, confidence and areas to develop, along with your own needs and expectations. I also welcome information from reports and assessments so that I can prepare a personalised plan in time for the first session, with targets to aim for along the way.

I plan varied, interactive sessions using mental activities, games, written tasks, educational apps, websites... whichever is the best tool for learning available. I can also provide further activities and websites to practise through the week.
