Hello! I am an aspiring secondary school teacher, with life long experience working with children and young people through lived experience, founding my own youth-led charity and teaching in academic environments. I am passionate and committed to providing children, students and other adults with the nurturing care, patience and education that will set them up to live soul-enriching and fulfilling lives.
My lessons are geared towards students who are looking for intellectual expansion that will give them the ability to grow not only academically but personally too. Priority will be given to the student's goals and I will encourage a great emphasis on enjoying the process of learning. I am an out of box thinker who can help making learning fun for any ability - because everyone is capable of success!
I will pay close attention to the way the student wants to learn, in this way we can co-produce a plan that achieves the best results.
