The foundations of my teaching focus are based on the simple approach that every child is unique. I offer a flexible approach to tutoring and cater for personalisation of an individual's own understanding and ideas to inform planning of tutor-class content rather than purely teacher-directed activities. I take time to understand each individual learner and present an engaging teaching content with correctly differentiated levels of challenge, consistently setting and adapting high yet achievable expectations. My philosophy is that a good teacher motivates, inspires, nurtures, listens and challenges and this should also be translated into the field of tutoring, where the tutor acts as a facilitator to help children reach their full individual potential across all areas.My proven track record in 1:1 private tuition includes: 100% success rates with entrance exams, KS1/2/3 curriculum support to address misconceptions, secure concepts and boost progress, KS1-5 MFL teaching and learning. Across all of these areas, I have successfully reignited a love of learning, discovered hidden talents, restored confidence and boosted self-esteem. I have many clients who would be happy to act as referees for the work I have done, if necessary.
My core expertise lies in the ares of:
Exam Preparation Classes:
Year 6 SATS, 11+. 13+ and IESB Entrance Exams
National Curriculum across KS1 and KS2
KS1-5 Spanish and French
KS3 English and Maths
I provide extra support, confidence building, intervention and consolidation of school learnt concepts ias well as provision of additional stretch and challenge activiites to move learning forward as well as tutoring for exam preparation purposes e.g. SATS practice and techniques, entrance exam preparation and KS3/4 Spanish and French.
Throughout my teaching career to date, I have assumed full responsibility for independent lesson planning, execution and assessment which includes implementation of a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies such as keeping young learners active at all times, adapting materials to suit different learner styles and interests, providing a meaningful and fun learning context, making sure that all activities are achievable yet offer some degree of challenge and implementing varied strategies to support weaker learners. Whilst working in Spain, I gained a sound knowledge and awareness of principal EFL methodologies and theories of language acquisition. This knowledge has been instrumental in ensuring a positive transfer of these to classroom practice in England in provision for EAL children as well as teaching French and Spanish to English mother tongue children.
I have a wealth of teaching and leadership experience gained across both mainstream primary and independent all-through schools. Additionally, I have spent time teaching in Spain in international schools and privately owned English language academies where I worked for several years teaching English and curriculum to children, teenagers and adults. After several years in Spain, I moved back to England to pursue a career in the primary education sector where I have been working on a full-time basis ever since. Many of the vast and varied skills I acquired in a business career previous to teaching have been both relevant and invaluable to aid a successful transition into the profession, both as a class teacher, modern foreign language specialist and private tutor.
I have been working as a class teacher in the primary sector in England for over 10 years now. Accountable for the teaching and learning across various primary year groups, I am responsible for individually and collectively planning and assessing all national curriculum subjects in accordance with school policies, with the ultimate aim of ensuring the highest possible standards of pupil achievement, progress, personal development and well-being. In addition to my day to day class teacher duties, I am also Assessment/HPL/Curriculum and MFL (French and Spanish) Coordinator for whole of school, these additional key school-wide responsibilities require that I keep myself abreast and up to date with all relevant requirements and/or changes. Currently, I am working within the state sector as Year 6 Class Teacher. Having previously worked in an all-through school from nursery to sixth form, I also have experience in teaching Spanish and French at KS3/4 level.
Whilst working previously in Spain as an EFL Teacher with a private English Language Academy, I was responsible for teaching various levels of English to adults, teenagers and Young Learners (YL, from 6 years old). The YL syllabus covered grammatical structures, vocabulary and phonology. As part of the YL courses, I also prepared children for the Young Learners Cambridge examinations. I was also responsible for teaching teenagers and adults of varying levels, including Cambridge English examination preparation classes (FCE, CAE and Proficiency).
I have been a tutor for a few years teaching both face to face and online. To me, the most important thing as a tutor is to really listen to your student and let them explain what they may find challenging about a subject. Each student is different and therefore their lessons should also be unique. My students appreciate my friendly approach to learning and it is important that the students are in the driving seat of their lessons. I regularly ask my students what they would like to focus on and I base my lessons around where they can make the most progress.
I think it is important to have a tutor that is actively learning more about their subject of choice and that is why I am unique as a tutor. I am currently studying English literature with French and Spanish at The Universoty of Sheffield and this degree encompasses my strenghts and also what I enjoy. I am open to tutoring any ability level and I really look forward to meeting you!
I am an enthusaistic educator who can offer highly personalised online tutoring. I am currently in my fourth year of teaching and my specialisms are English and media studies. I enjoy adapting my teaching and tutoring to match the pupil in front of me and to adjust my teaching style to suit the learner and can provide high quality tutoring particularly for those pupils preparing for GCSEs or the move up to A Level. I have experience in exam marking which I believe has helped me become proficient in what skills a pupil needs to hone these are transerfable to whichever phase of learning you are currently at. Contact me if you have any questions and I am happy to set up an initial lesson to see if my style is compatible to your needs.

When a student is or can become motivated, potential just increases and increases. I love to make that difference and see confidence and enthusiasm grow with every lesson. This is, of course, dependent on homework being completed to the best of the child's ability, without help from a parent. You will find me patient, friendly, approachable and exceptionally knowledgable. I will tell the learner clearly what is good and what needs work, then work through problems to create more strengths. This is how I boost results from a fail to a good pass, or a scrape pass to a comfy www.*** ;
