My name is Heather and I’m English & Maths tutor with 4 years’ teaching experience and a First-Class degree in English Literature. I have taught students from age 5-35, with success in helping students prepare for their SATs, GCSEs, IELTS exams, TSA exams and university admissions, including Cambridge. More recently, I have started virtually home-schooling some of my tutees to help with their studies during the Covid-19 pandemic. I also have experience working with students who have special needs and am currently working towards my Master’s in Special Educational Needs to develop these skills further.
I have 4 years’ experience working as a tutor, both online and face-to-face. This has been quite wide ranging, as I have worked with students from age 5-35, as well as students who have a range of special or additional learning needs (such as ADHD, Autism and Down Syndrome). I also have over 7 years’ experience working in child care.
Primary Education Experience: I have worked with a number of students to improve their reading comprehension, fluency, creative writing skills and grammar. I have also helped students with their English & Maths SATs preparation and have taught primary level History and Science. More recently, I have started virtually home-schooling some of my tutees, to give them extra educational support throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Secondary Education Experience: I have experience teaching KS3 level English and Maths, GCSE English Language and GCSE English literature. I also have experience supporting students with their university applications and entrance exams (including the Oxford TSA exam).
In addition to tutoring, I have worked as a child minder in both the UK and Australia. I have also spent a lot of time volunteering in schools (both special needs and mainstream) in the UK and abroad.
I have the following qualifications
• BA (Hons) English Literature and Politics
• A-Levels in English Literature, History and Chemistry
• AS- Levels in Maths and German
• NCC Level 3, Autism Awareness For Educators
• Queensland University of Technology, Teaching Students who have suffered complex trauma
• National STEM Learning Centre, Managing Behaviour for learning
I am also currently doing an online course about Teaching Phonics in Early Childhood and I plan to learn sign language next year.
I am currently offering online tuition and tutoring in my home (near Hertford East Train Station) for any students looking for a bit of extra support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
