This is how 2 referees rated Niki:
Hello, my name is Niki and I am both a qualified teacher and a mother of twins. I am a caring, approachable and enthusiastic person who loves working 1:1 with pupils. I like to make learning fun and enjoyable and aim to get the best out of each individual. It is a real privilege to be able to help children make progress and see them grow in confidence as a consequence. Outside of teaching, I enjoy cooking, gardening, travel and looking after my family!
I am a qualified teacher who has experience working in both the state and private sectors teaching children in class settings and individually. For the past 5 years I have specialised in teaching children English and Reading on a 1:1 basis, working with children who either have additional needs, find the subject difficult or simply need some specialist additional help. I have a lot of experience in screening for dyslexia and advising teachers and parents on appropriate practise accordingly.
I have a very successfull track record in helping children who are struggling to achieve their potential particulalry in the critical areas of reading and writing.
I hold a firm belief that everyone is capable of learning irrespective of their level or needs. Getting to know a pupil and understanding how they learn best is crucial to success and so I assess all pupils to discover their current level, learning styles and needs, which then allows me to tailor all sessions to the individual. I feel it is important to develop pupil confidence and a foster in them a belief that they can succeed. I have high expectations of pupils and aim to ensure they achieve the absolute best they can. I have a wealth of experience and proven success of teaching children with a wide range of abilities and diffculties on a 1:1 basis. I am experienced in and able to screen for dyslexia, and advise and teach accordingly. I prefer to teach from my home as it allows me to create a calm environment conducive to learning without distractions.
