Update December 2019 - I am now on maternity leave. Please see ‘My Availability’ section. Thank you :)
I am an enthusiastic, passionate and creative Primary Teacher.
Having previously taught in various primary schools on a broad spectrum of demographics, I currently offer tutoring, childcare and babysitting services in order to regain some flexibility in my personal life as well as maintain my passion for educating and nurturing young children.
A natural enthusiasm for interacting with young children grew and developed into a passion for helping children learn as I progressed through college and University.
I will competently provide ongoing support to children who lack confidence in a subject area or who simply need a boost to get them over a specific hurdle that's holding them back from progressing to the next step. Perhaps your child doesn't enjoy a particular subject? There will generally be a way to make a concept fun and engaging once you know a child’s interests.
Everyone learns better when they're having fun after all!
I have experience in drama and a wicked sense of humour which supports me well in building a rapport with children of all ages. I am empathetic with strong interpersonal skills and practical experience allowing me to adapt to a child's needs or mood and learning styles.
I have varied interests such as reading, horse riding, singing, amateur dramatics, rock climbing, the natural world, science, psychology, Disney, dance and I appreciate the importance of enjoying the opportunities we choose to indulge in.
Learning should be fun - you always remember something that made you laugh or feel good!
I am a qualified teacher, trained in the Early Years (3-7) in addition to teaching an age range of 4 through to 10 year olds as a class teacher since 2010.
I have successfully completed the NQT Induction Program.
My previous roles as a class teacher provide me with experience in teaching children from 4-10 years of age within a broad range of Special Educational Needs and wide-ranging levels of attainment in a mainstream environment. This required me to provide highly differentiated and personalised lesson plans on a daily basis with multi-sensory and practical elements as well as application through written work.
I have access to a varied 'toolkit' of teaching styles and resources which enables me to start working at the appropriate academic level for your child.
Prior to University and Teacher Training I gained a diploma in Childcare Early Years which qualified me as a Nursery Nurse upon completion in 2006 in addition to a diploma in Dance and Performing Arts gained in 2002.
I have been babysitting from the age of 14 which included, on occasion my younger siblings, and more recently the children of friends and acquaintances.
I will always ensure I stay sensitive to the needs of the child and to the expectations of the family. Open lines of communication are key to success so a trusted relationship can be built and a safe learning environment for the child.
