I am a qualified primary school teacher, with 7 years teaching experience, now working as a professional, private tutor full time. 

I have worked in several schools across Bristol and Gloucestershire and in all year groups. I have also taught Reception for 2 years, so I have a wide experience of the primary curriculum as a whole, from entry to Year 6. 

Since I left classroom teaching, I have worked with multiple elective home educated children developing topics that interested children, including Dinosaurs and WW2. This ensured progress and a lot of engagement from the students! 

I am passionate about making learning fun and accessible for all and have experience with a variety of Special Needs including dyslexia and autism, as well as a variety of social and emotional needs. This has led to lots of fun games and activities, my two favourite being equivalent fractions hopscotch and 11+ vocab jenga! I believe if the learning is fun and engaging, the children will want to learn, leading to happier, more self confident pupils.

One of the main perks of tutoring for me is the confidence boost it gives the pupils. I have really enjoyed seeing many pupils over the 2 years experience the ‘ah ha’ moment and knowing I had a part to play in that is extremely rewarding. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of hearing positive comments from parents and teachers explaining that the student is showing increased confidence in class, or has mastered a tricky concept. 

I am fully DBS checked and am currently tutoring online, via Zoom and and a collaborative interactive whiteboard. 

I would love to hear from you if you are considering private tutoring for your child.
