Orpington Tutor

I am 40 years old. I work hard, enjoy life and am fun-loving. I love my job, and put 100% into everything I do. Being a teacher is a privilege, and I could never get bored working with children. I enjoy seeing friends, good food, cooking, reading, film, theatre and travel.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified and experienced primary school teacher with 15 years' experience. I have been home tutoring since 2011 as well as being in school. I have now decided to focus solely on tutoring.
I began my career when I qualified to teach English as a foreign language in 2002. I went on to teach foreign students in primary schools, secondary schools, language schools and universities in England, Italy, Austria, Poland, South Korea and Japan on short contracts.
I passed my primary PGCE in 2004 and have taught across the key stages in several schools in the Kent and Bromley boroughs. I have been graded as a 'good' and 'outstanding' teacher in formal observations. Most of my experience is in key stage 2. I have also been employed by Edexcel to mark the year 6 SAT papers.

Tutoring Approach

I Removed have excellent subject knowledge, and am keeping abreast of current changes in the curriculum. I offer tailored sessions for your child's needs and learning styles in maths, reading, writing, verbal reasoning and non verbal reasoning. Exam technique, tips and preparation are also woven into the sessions. I am well resourced and provide children with a variety of activities using whiteboards, discussion, practical exercises and interactive games and apps. Children really enjoy the sessions and make good progress as a result.
