Canterbury Tutor

My name is Rachel Lawson and I am originally from Ireland. I moved over to England to complete my PGCE and have been here ever since! I love working with children and within the education system. I take pride in my motivating and inspiring skills. I am punctual, organised and can adapt my teaching skills to suit every learner.

Tutoring Experience

I have been a teacher for 7 years and have experience teaching in both key 1 and 2 . I am currently teaching year 5 however, I extensive experience year 2 and 3. I lead Literacy throughout my school and I'm a Local Authority Moderator for Kent. I am very well experienced in teaching the new curriculum and supporting children through SAT exams and the 11 plus. I am passionate about helping children become enthusiastic about their learning and providing them with the key strategies needed in order to achieve their goals.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that every child has the ability to learn- they just need to be provided with the correct strategies, understanding and approaches in order to reach their full potential. I will work closely with the child to identify their strength and weakness and input strategies to ensure that every lesson is adapted to suit the needs of each individual child.
