Rachael

Wellington Tutor

I have recently moved to Somerset from North Devon where I worked as a full-time primary school teacher. I now live in Wellington with my partner who is from Italy. I am enjoying getting to know the area and working as a supply teacher in some local schools. I have a passion for reading myself and studied English Literature to degree level.

Tutoring Experience

I am a fully qualified Primary school teacher with more than 13 years of experience. I currently work as a supply teacher following my relocation from North Devon to Wellington. Throughout my career, I have particularly specialised in teaching phonics, reading and writing to Reception and KS1 children. I have taught in both the UK and in Italy where I taught a Reception class and also English as an additional language to an adult learner.

Tutoring Approach

I have a creative approach to tutoring as I would within the classroom. I believe reading and writing is best taught in a multi-sensory, imaginative and engaging way and supported by a love of language and story.
