I am a Primary School teacher at an Outstanding school in London (recently named both the UK's 'Best Primary School' and 'Best Overall School' at a major annual education awards ceremony). In September 2017, I completed a masters in Educational Leadership at UCL and prior to this, I studied Textiles at Manchester Metropolitan University, obtaining a BA (Hons). I have been educated with the vital skills and experience needed to make a difference and become the positive impact on children’s lives that I believe a teacher should be. I am a conscientious, diligent and highly reflective worker. I am passionate about teaching and have been involved in tutoring since I was 18 years old.
I am currently working as Head of Year 4 and I'm a class teacher to 32 children in the London borough of Havering. Previously, I taught in Thurrock for 3 years, teaching a range of year groups.
I specialise in teaching Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and my teaching has been graded 'Outstanding', both as a whole, and across all eight individual Teachers' Standards by the Institute of Education at UCL. Moreover, I am experienced in preparing children for their end of Key Stage 2 assessments (SATs).
I also have a great deal of experience with a number of SEN (Special Educational Needs) pupils, in particular pupils with Autism Spectrum Condition and moderate / severe learning difficulties.
My approach to tutoring changes with every child. I tailor all lesson plans and resources to the unique needs of the tutee, be it pushing those who are already thriving even further, to helping to lift those who are currently struggling. I am particularly passionate about removing the learning barriers a number of children face, be it a lack of confidence, English as an Additional Language or Special Educational Needs / disabilities.
