Personal Description:

I am 42 and live in Somerset. Before becoming a school teacher I spent ten years as a computer programmer and a further eight years teaching computing to children and adults, including vulnerable adults. I enjoy writing training courses and holiday workshops for children. In my spare time I enjoy writing.

Tutoring Experience:

For the past seven years I have been teaching years 5 through to 8 in a middle school in Somerset. Although my core subject is ICT, I specialise in improving skills and confidence in basic literacy and numeracy, and I have experience across the curriculum, and can also help with ongoing projects.

Tutoring Approach:

We all learn at different speeds and in different ways, and that's why tutoring can sometimes be helpful. My aim is for the student to build their self assurance by taking small steps and really getting to understand what they are learning. This is especially helpful for students who may lack confidence, or sometimes just 'don't get it'. I try to make learning visual and interesting.

I think it is really important that children not only learn the subject knowledge (that is important!), but also that they understand it, and most of all, that they build confidence in their abilities.
