I teach across the primary age phase from ages 5-11 years, providing tuition for children who need to be challenged further and for those children who need extra support to keep up with the National Curriculum. I provide tutoring for the 11+ and Key Stage 1 and 2 SATs.
I am a qualified primary school teacher with over 10 years teaching experience, including 6 years SATs experience. I have worked in a range of London Schools, including Honeywell Infant School (Wandsworth) an outstanding Primary School, where I was also Maths Manager. I am now a supply teacher for the Tendring area, which keeps me up to date with changes in education and means I am DBS checked. I live in Lawford, Manningtree with my husband and two children.
I believe in providing a caring, friendly environment where children can grow in confidence as they see themselves progressing in their learning. I am passionate that every child should reach their full potential and that an individual’s achievements should be recognised and praised, hence raising self-esteem.
I follow the National Curriculum, but your child is the starting point within that. Initial assessments are made and then an individual learning programme, tailored specifically to meet the needs of your child, will be set in place. As lessons progress, this is carefully monitored and then modified in accordance with progress made. I use a range of teaching techniques to take into account differing learning styles and to make lessons fun and engaging; children learn best when they are happy!
Good relationships with parents are key to enable your child to reach their highest potential; I give honest, friendly advice and feedback, regarding your child’s levels and their individual learning programme.
I understand that choosing the right tutor for your child is a big decision. I therefore provide a free initial lesson and parent consultation, where expectations and your child’s needs can be fully discussed.
