I am Natasha, a mummy to a beautiful girl. I have a love of teaching children and watching them progress to their full potential. I enjoy being creative, reading, baking and going swimming. I worked originally as a 1:1 LSA before completing my teacher training and going on to being an Early years practitioner. After teaching for 4 years, I decided to take the leap and complete my SENCO training to become a fully qualified special educational needs coordinator. I enjoyed working with children on a one to one basis and want to carry this on with private tutoring.
I have taught within primary schools for 6 years. I have taught a range of year groups- I primarily trained as an Early Years practitioner but have taught across the primary school curriculum from the Foundation stage, KS1 and KS2.
I qualified as a SENCO (special educational needs coordinator) in 2016.
My experience dates back to working with Autistic children before I became a primary school teacher. I have worked on a 1:1 basis with children with varying levels of need; Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Asperger's, Autism, Attachment disorder and ADHD.
I offer a friendly, enjoyable, positive, enthusiastic and happy working environment, my previous skills have allowed me to understand children and help them progress to their full potential.
I have a creative, friendly, fun and enthusiastic attitude to teaching. I like to promote fun learning through children's motivations. With the skills that I have gained, I am able to use these to help children to progress in an environment that they feel comfortable and safe in, whilst having fun learning. I also offer the opportunity to take their learning outside and go and learn and explore.
I have a main focus on teaching children how to read, phonics, Maths and English.
