I have three sons and three grandchildren. I am married. I have 3 dogs who love lots of walks and playing ball. I have a degree in humanities and a PGCE both gained from the University of Greenwich.
I have worked as a primary school teacher for 18 years. I now teach occasionally in school to keep up to date with current practice but my main teaching role is as a 1:1 tutor, or as an intervention teacher, visiting busy schools across North Kent area. Unfortunately, it is not possible for me to travel from Kent to Essex due to unpredictability of tunnel traffic.
The classroom can be an inspiring place for children to learn, but it can also be full of distractions. With class sizes becoming increasingly larger, one to one tutoring can help a young child to reach his or her full potential, without the distractions that can lead to significant gaps in learning. Tutoring at home can also increase a child's confidence, my own son had a tutor when he was young and I truly believe she made the difference to his future attitude to study. I am willing to discuss my experiences if required.
