About Me

Hi there,
Thanks for viewing my profile!
My name is Shannon and I'm a qualified teacher.
I have 4 years experience teaching Year 2 and a year's experience in Early Years.
As of September I am going back to University part time to study psychology so I will be unavailable on Tuesdays.

I love working 1:1 with children as well as groups or classes. I make my lessons as creative as possible and love ensuring children are engaged and excited. No one wants to waste an hour being bored!
I can drive and I am willing to drive children to local parks/entertainment whilst babysitting as long as it is local.

Babysitting: I am flexible with rates depending on how frequently babysitting is required. Generally £15.
I charge £25/30ph depending on distance to travel for tutoring. Within 5 miles of my home is £25 and £30 for up to 7 miles.

My Experience

I'm currently in my 5th year of teaching. I have plenty of knowledge of the KS1 SATs and the end of year expectations. My class percentages have been in line or above national averages. I have experience of maths mastery, power of reading and phonics interventions. I have also worked with NCETM to develop resources for schools to access.

I have successfully tutored a young boy in year 1 through his phonics test raising a score of 17 up to 34. We continued to work into year 2 developing his handwriting, sentence structure and fluency with numbers.

I have supported a child in Year 3 with dyslexia, developing simple rhymes and patterns to work on spellings.

I tutored another Year 1 boy with phonics, maths, writing and reading. He passed his phonics test, and was able to progress from writing letters backwards and incorrectly to cursive within the 7 months.

I tutored a Year 1 girl raising her phonics from 12 to 32 within 4 months completing 2 tutoring sessions a week. This was the main focus along with developing her blending and segmenting skills when reading and writing.

I have tutored children from year 1 up to children in year 3 and have kept in contact with families I have tutored and cared for in the past.

I am able to support children of all ages in Primary, however my main experience is KS1.

I can support children in year 1 with their phonics tests and those in year 2 who need to retake the screening.

I am able to support children with preparation for SATs and use methods I am currently using to prepare children that I have also used in the past and work.

I am able to build confidence of children who need reassurance, learning whilst having fun!

I can also extend children's learning helping them to master the curriculum for those that need something extra to challenge and excite them!

My Qualifications

I studied Early Primary Education (BA Hons) QTS at Northumbria University and left with a 2:1
I have level 1 in British Sign Language.

My Availability

I am available on evenings for babysitting but fully available on a weekend for both tutoring and babysitting.

I currently tutor a year 1 boy and year 3 girl Saturday 11:30-12:30 and Thursday 5:00-6:00.
