Information About Sharon - Milton Keynes tutor
This is how a referee rated Sharon:
Hi, I am Sharon, a mum of two grown up boys. I am a caring, enthusiastic and friendly tutor with good inter personal skills. Working with primary school children for many years, I have been best described as having a skill of building children's confidence in maths as well as enhancing their learning. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and ensure that every child I work with achieves to their full potential.
I have worked with primary school children for 18 years. I started off assisting teachers in the classroom working alongside the children with learning/behaviour difficulties. As I have a passion for maths, I was given the role to do Maths interventions with children from Year 2 to Year 6. I now teach maths daily to groups of children (up to 9 in a group) and one to one sessions. I know the requirements of the maths curriculum for each year group and plan around these accordingly. I am able to differentiate to meet the needs of all the children that I work with. I tutor children in Year 2 and 6 in preparation for their SATs and have seen good progress made by all. I have had Numicon and Talking Maths training and have led training sessions for Teaching assistants in my school and other schools.
I am a very kind, caring and patient teacher who knows that some children lack confidence in maths and how that can make them feel. I like to make sure that the children I am working with feel a sense of achievement. I am a firm believer in giving praise to all effort in the maths lesson!
To start with I will do a short assessment with your child to enable me to see where your child needs support. If you already know this information then I am happy to plan sessions according to what is required. Each session I will bring along some maths aids to help your child visually understand what is being taught. I will also encourage your child to give reasons for answers to show their understanding.
I am passionate about teaching and look forward to working with your child to give them the maths skills they will need for life.
