I am a very well qualified and experienced secondary and primary school teacher. I have a friendly and warm personality and live with my daughter who is off to university in September and 2 very small dogs (they don't drop dander so no worries for anyone with allergies).
I have taught English for 10 years in a large comprehensive school in South Gloucester covering all the age range 11-18 including A level. Eight years ago I retrained in primary education and began to teach Junior Primary Key Stage 2 as well as secondary. Now I teach only in primary school but I tutor English at all Key Stages (2 - 5) both primary and secondary, and Maths Key Stage 2 (11 years). I also prepare children for entrance examinations to secondary schools particularly verbal and non verbal reasoning tests. Some children in their first year of secondary school who need consolidation work on their last year of primary school could also benefit from my support.
I aim to encourage all pupils to reach their potential and to develop their self confidence. I tailor tutoring to individual pupil needs which I will explore in the first assessment lesson.
