I’m a passionate and committed educator and I love what I do. Working with children, nurturing them, and helping them to reach their potential is hugely rewarding. I will never tire of that ‘lightbulb moment’ when something finally clicks with a student. With tutoring, it’s possible to tailor the lesson to meet each student’s precise needs, which isn’t possible in a busy classroom. I feel extremely privileged to be a part of a child’s educational journey.

Experience

For 30 years I worked as a class teacher, mainly in North London, but also in the North West of England. Over the years I have taught all year groups from Reception to Year 6 and I also have a lot of experience teaching children with SEN and EAL. My time in the classroom affords me a strong understanding of the curriculum, enabling me to quickly identify where children have gaps in their knowledge. I develop and deliver effective targeted support to plug these gaps. Delivering interesting and engaging lessons is very important to me; I work hard to make sure children have fun along the way. I’ve worked closely with many hundreds of children and so I tailor my approach to suit a child’s personality and learning style. I treat all my students as individuals.
