Tell us a bit about yourself.

I have been an inspiring primary school teacher for 20 years. Primary tutoring is one of a number of roles I have held, others include: reception class teaching, early years support, and support for primary school pupils with social and emotional needs. I inspire children to enjoy their education and I am passionate about building self-esteem and confidence. Through ongoing assessment and analysis of need, I engage pupils by making lessons relevant to their learning style and interests, whilst challenging them to reach their full potential. I am skilled in building the confidence of anxious learners and helping children catch up. I emphasise the importance of trying and learning from mistakes and try to relate learning to real-life experiences to make it more meaningful.
