I am a fully qualified teacher, with experience in Years 3, 5 and 6. This experience has reinforced my belief that delivering bespoke learning based on the students needs is vital. My specialist subjects are English and Maths, although I also teach both verbal and non-verbal reasoning. I like to use my students strengths to help build on areas they find more challenging and create work which pushes them without damaging their confidence. My own particular strength lies in inspiring, encouraging and developing young and struggling writers. I have a passion for writing and this always shines through, as I like to use personalised texts and stories, written by myself, to help focus their learning. This lets me target any problem areas and link the work into the childs interest.
I have experience tutoring 11+, and working with younger students on the 7+ examinations. Im also confident in my ability to teach 13+ and even GCSE maths. Having already attained an A at GCSE I have decided to go back and get my A level too, something I am currently studying for. I have a strong grasp of both verbal and non-verbal reasoning. I am committed to being a great teacher and pride myself on my work.
