I love babies and children and am passionate about ensuring the best outcomes for the children and families that I work with.
I am a qualified teacher and have wide-ranging experience across early years and the primary age range. My pastoral care is second to none and I am able to quickly develop a rapport with young children and encourage them to learn, develop and explore through play. I help children to feel safe and secure by working together with their family providing clear and consistent boundaries and a warm and nurturing environment. Children are able to flourish in this climate and develop their creativity and confidence.
I am working as a private tutor and offer tailored support with homework and work set by the school during COVID-19 school closures. I have expertise in EYFS, phonics, reading and writing and subjects across the primary curriculum.
I have enhanced DBS clearance and two grown-up children of my own. My interests are fitness, Pilates and going to the gym. I love being outside and active, playing with children, gardening, reading and spending time with my family. I also enjoy going to the theatre and walking.
Thank you for reading my profile. I am also available for some daytime Nannying and ad hoc evening babysitting.
I have wide-ranging and extensive experience with children in the 0-11 age group including those with additional needs.
I have worked as a primary school teacher and in Early Years settings in the maintained and independent sectors. I love working closely with families to ensure the very best provision for their children.
I have a degree in Education, NPQH and an Early Years Professional Status qualification.
I am available for private tutoring and ad hoc babysitting.

Karen is a kind, loving and gentle nanny. She is highly experienced within early years which I found invaluable help with my 3 year old and 8 month old.
I hired Karen to be a part time support, to help with nursery drop offs, take the children out for walks and general childcare duties in the house. She also helped us abroad for a week last summer when we went away.
Karen made me feel completely comfortable leaving my baby with her, who was often a little uncomfortable with reflux in the beginning. Her communication skills and language skills were excellent for our toddler as she understands 'how' to speak to children of this age in an appropriate way to help them developmentally. She is patient and genuinely cares about the children she works with.
She is extremely reliable and punctual and over the year she spent with us she has never let us down.
Not only is she amazing with the kids, she is a great support to any mum, very hands on and experienced.
We were sad to see her go and know she will be an asset to any family lucky enough to have her.
Karen is professional, organised and approachable. She has really engaged with my son who has autism and he always enjoys his time with her. His reading and writing have progressed hugely since she has been tutoring him as has his confidence in his own abilities. She has always shown great patience and understanding towards him and tailors each lesson to fit him. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen.
