|Why have you chosen to be a tutor?|
|Whilst a Learning Support Teacher, I developed skills in 1 to 1 teaching and learning through assessment, target setting, monitoring progress and working closely with families. I found this style of teaching very different from whole class and more rewarding, therefore becoming a tutor seemed the perfect option.|
|What are your hobbies?|
|My hobbies include running, dance, gym classes and walking my dog.|
|Who do you most admire and why?||I do not have one person that I admire as I value different attributes in many people. However organisation, resilience and determination are skills I consider to be important.|
|To date, what has been your biggest achievement?|
|Managing a balance in life of work, family and personal interests is an achievement, nevertheless one that brings new challenges every day.|
|What has been a magical moment in your life?|
|The birth of my two sons is my most magical moment.|
|What is the quirkiest thing about you?|
|I enjoy setting myself personal challenges and facing my fears. I suppose being afraid of dogs but then getting a Labrador is a little quirky!|
|If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?|
|*My first wish would be for my children to have healthy, happy and successful lives.|
*My second wish would be for me to continue to be healthy, happy and successful.
*My final wish would be to play a small part in helping the children I work with have a happy and successful future.
