Personal Description:

I am a qualified primary school teacher and former teacher of English as a Second Language. I am a mum of two young girls and have lived in Japan and Australia for 10 years, before returning to the UK in 2010.

Tutoring Experience:

I began teaching in 2000 after completing my Masters Degree in Social Anthropology from the University of Edinburgh. I studied for and passed a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. I then began teaching English as a Second Language to children and adults in Japan. I taught a range of classes from kindergarten groups to one on one business English lessons.

I moved to Australia in 2002 and began teaching in a High School Preparation Programme. I assessed overseas teenage pupils on arrival in the country and then taught them a range of subjects in English to enable them to pass High School entry exams in Australia.

In 2005 I took my Diploma of Primary Education (Australian equivalent of PGCE) and began working at a primary school. I taught all subjects to a range of age groups. I used technology to assist pupil learning, working alongside staff to trial Microsoft software. I worked in a school with a large amount of SEN and ESL pupils and so have a lot of experience of working closely with students to improve their reading, writing and maths to meet and exceed national targets. After taking maternity leave in 2009, I returned to the same primary school as a literacy intervention teacher. I worked across Key Stage 1 and 2 to help pupils struggling with reading comprehension prepare for national tests. I also worked with students who needed extending more, to provide higher level reading and vocabulary work than they were receiving in their class.

Since moving to the UK, I have completed a period of voluntary work at a local primary school. I have recently been working as a supply teacher in local primary and secondary schools, alongside tutoring work.

Tutoring Approach:

The benefit of one to one tuition is the ability to target the specific needs of the student. I believe in looking carefully at the students needs and working with them to set targets and achieve them. I am flexible and aim to quickly and accurately find the best learning style for students. I am punctual and committed to providing successful tuition that is appealing to the students as well as their parents.
