Experience, training and skills

I am a qualified, highly motivated and dedicated specialist tutor for 4 – 11 year olds, with teaching specialisms in Performing Arts (drama and singing), Primary Education & Special Educational Needs and sensory difficulties. I am eager to use my current teaching qualification (PGCE) and previous experience in a wide range of settings, both in the UK and overseas, to facilitate 1:1 tutoring sessions & specialist educational workshops that ignite an individual’s spark, instil confidence and inspire a love of learning.

I hold a wealth of teaching experience across all three primary key-stages, both in the UK and overseas, and have experience working with children and young people with specific educational needs, and learners from bilingual backgrounds. I am keen to use my current teaching qualification to facilitate 1:1 tutoring sessions that eradicate any previous barriers to learning, seek out how children learn best and foster a love of learning.

I have a thorough understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and National Primary Curriculum, and specialist subject knowledge of the Maths Mastery Programme and Letters & Sounds Phonics Programme. In my role as Reception Phase Lead, I was responsible for implementing and delivering Maths, Phonics, Behavioural & Speech & Language interventions to children.

I also have extensive experience in Key Stage 1 & 2 – preparing pupils for end of term examinations and administering National Curriculum Tests, such as: Year 1 Phonics Screening Check, Year 2 SATs & Year 6 SATs.

My Teaching Philosophy

I favour a multi-sensory approach to my teaching and am committed to unlocking the potential of each and every child in a supportive, compassionate and encouraging way - through the use of personalised learning plans, individual targets and confidence-building skills.

I am a highly adaptable and reflective practitioner and would describe my teaching style as enthusiastic, creative and passionate.

As a qualified Primary School Teacher, I share specialisms in Early Years Education, Phonics and Performing Arts. As an educator, I am a firm believer in delivering excellence within the wider curriculum, ensuring all children receive a high-quality and well-rounded education.

I am passionate about delivering innovative and engaging tutoring sessions that put the learning experience and well-being of the child at its core.

Something sensational about me

I favour a multi-sensory, immersive and creative approach to learning and aim to incorporate drama, dance and music into all of my 1:1 tutoring sessions.

I love to travel and have completed teaching placements in Africa, America, South-East Asia & South America.
