I am a qualified Primary School Teacher. My teacher training covered the Early Years Foundation Stage and lower Key Stage 1 (ages 3-7). Teaching literacy is my strength, this includes reading, writing and the teaching of Phonics. However, I am confident in teaching the core subjects including maths and have a variety of teaching approaches and strategies that I have developed over my training time and throughout my teaching experience.
I have experience teaching English and Maths in both mainstream and Special Education Needs (SEN) schools. I have taught children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and have also tutored children in lower Key Stage 2. I am aware of the importance to support children who struggle with some areas of their learning as well as the need to extend those children who are exceeding and need to be challenged in order to make progress.
Throughout my experience of teaching I have developed a range of teaching strategies and approaches to ensure that the children I am teaching are engaged, motivated and are enjoying themselves. I believe that children learn in different ways and at different rates and as a teacher I strive to provide opportunities for all children to make progress in their learning. I try to make learning experiences meaningful by providing a context or a link to the children's interests. After all, learning should be a fun experience. I also think children should be able to access their learning in a variety of ways. They should have opportunities to use of a range of resources as well as opportunities to learn in an active way.
