Personal Description:

I am a mother of three young children and live in Cobham, Surrey. Until recently, I was a Year 1 and 2 teacher at a Prep school. I am currently taking a break from full time teaching to look after my children, and am focusing on private tuition.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher with eight years experience of teaching Year 1 and Year 2 at a boy's Prep school in Kingston-Upon-Thames. In addition, I have been Curriculum Co-ordinator as well as Head of Year 1. Whilst training to become a teacher, I specialised in teaching Years 3-6. In the last five years, I have tutored children from ages 5-11 in Maths and English from both state and independent schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially I spend time talking with the parent about their child, their needs and what they expect to gain from the one-to-one sessions. In my first lesson, I always take the time to get to know the pupil and find out about their interests. I ensure that they are comfortable, confident and relaxed with me. Through assessing their work, learning style and general ability, I compile a tailored programme of study for them which is both flexible and easily adaptable depending on the outcome of each lesson. I use a range of teaching methods including games, activities on the computer and worksheets. I ensure that there is an open dialogue with the parent at all times. I find that my pupils enjoy their lessons with me, grow in confidence and above all, develop their knowledge and understanding. We also have fun along the way!
