My specialist subjects are Literacy and Numeracy. I have been a class teacher for four years, teaching ages from 3 to 11 years of age. I have also tutored (on a 1-1 basis) children between the ages of 6 to 11. I believe a successful tutor is someone that builds a good relationship with the student making learning as fun and relatable to real life as possible, in order to enhance their learning and understanding. I have taught all areas of the curriculum but have a particular passion for Literacy, Numeracy and History.
