My experience

After 10-years’ teaching in three very different schools, I have developed a wealth of experience in KS2 and have taught from Y1 to Y6.  I have also moved on numerous children with learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia and Asperger's.  I have a personalised learning approach that ensures children are building on their existing knowledge.   

About me

My nature is calm and my reputation in school, from staff, pupils and parents alike, is for being patient, firm and fair – always listening then reacting.  My belief is that if I enjoy teaching it, the children will enjoy receiving it and learn more effectively from it.  

Skills
  • Successful track record of moving children on

  • Patient

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Organised

I have been regularly CRB checked throughout my career.
