An enthusiastic and personable primary maths and English teacher
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I am a qualified primary school teacher who has worked in multiple schools across the wirral since beginning training in 2018. I have experience with both KS1 and KS2 children and children with SEND.
I specialise in catch up sessions for KS1 and 2 children in maths and English.
I offer lessons to suit the child. I ensure that lessons are informed by prior knowledge and assessment and give the children a memorable learning experience that responds to their individual needs. My lesson structure often begins with revisiting previous learning and then establishing that lesson's objectives. I then work through a number of exercises with the child, assessing as we go and end with a final assessment of the child's understanding before setting a homework task.
My teaching philosophy is ensuring all children are listened to, respected and actively involved in their own education. I do this by making lessons engaging and responding to the child's needs. This helps the child to develop intrinsic motivation and take ownership of their learning.
I have a degree in English literature and creative writing from Edge Hill University, a Primary PGDE from Liverpool John Moores University and I am currently studying towards an MA in Creative writing from Edge Hill University.
As well as teaching I am a keen dancer and writer. I take a number of dance lessons on a weekly basis and I regularly write poetry and short stories that are published in various literary magazines. I am also currently learning Spanish and British Sign Language.
