Personal Description:

I have been teaching in a variety of primary schools, both in the UK and Internationally (Asia) for 12 years. Over the years I have offered private tuition to support pupils in need. I offer KS 1 and 2 Primary Curriculum support and KS 3 in English, Maths, Art & Piano with Music Theory lesson Grade 1 to 5. However, I can support all subject areas across the primary phase, plus Art support up to GCSE level. I enjoy both classroom and private one to one, small group teaching. My favourite subjects are Art & Music and I now thoroughly enjoying learning every day with my newborn son. Motherhood is simply amazing!

I grew up on Dartmoor and loved running about in the fields, climbing Tors and collecting stones in rivers. I once caught a trout when fishing which my father sold in his pub as dish of the day! :) I attended Torquay Girls Grammar School, specialising in English, Art and Geography to A level. At the same time completing grades in music for singing, piano, flute and clarinet. I also loved Drama club, cookery and textiles classes. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, so I completed my Bachelor of Education Degree specialising in English, 4 Years at Plymouth University. In my spare time now as an adult, I enjoy painting and making jewellery or crafts for fun. I have always loved travelling and was fortunate to see many places during my childhood.

Once I had taught in the UK for a few years, I decided to embark on my own travels and teach abroad at the same time. I worked in a British International School in Penang, Malaysia for 3 yrs. I met an extraordinary group of people from all areas of the globe. I had a fantastic time. Whilst out there I visited many other places. My favourites were Thailand, Vietnam, Japan and Cambodia. Key skills and responsibilities I have had during my career on top of classroom teaching so far have been; Literacy & Assessment Co-ordinator, IPC International Primary Curriculum Development, Thinking Skills Trainer, Art Leader, PSHE Personal Social and Health Education leader, pastoral care and lead staff training and parent workshops in Reading, Writing, Maths and Art.
Now I'm a mum! My beautiful son is just 5 months old at the time of posting this blog entry. He changes every day and I am experiencing watching him grow and learn in ways I've never experienced before in teaching.
I currently work at Bathford CE Primary School and I offer tuition in my local area.
