I am experienced in teaching all subjects across the National Curriculum from Early Years up to the end of Key Stage 2 (Age 11, Year 6).
I tutor all national curriculum subjects, including Maths, Writing, Reading Support and Comprehension, Phonics, Spelling Punctuation and Grammar (Commonly known as SPaG) and handwriting. I have a particular interest in supporting children who are struggling in maths between the ages of 6-10 (Year 2 to Year 5) and I have a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the new 2014 National Curriculum changes and requirements.
Additionally, I also tutor children for the 7 and 11+ entrance examinations.

I have an MA in Women's Studies from the National University of Ireland, Cork along with BA (Hons) in Education Studies (2:1) from St Mary's University College. I have a PGCE with a specialism in Early Years Education and a diploma in School Leadership.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
End of Key Stage 1 SATs and end of Key Stage 2 SATs, 7+ and 11+ entrance examinations.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
The relationship a child has with their teacher has a profound effect on the way a child learns. Confidence and emotional security is imperative to sucessful learning - Without this learning can be severly hindered. For me, building confidence and self esteem in my pupils comes first and foremost. I am an empathic and caring but firm teacher dedicated to building strong relationships in a safe and fun but progress driven environment.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Having specialised in Early Years Education I have spent the majority of my career working in both Early Years and Key Stage I. At the beginning of my career I spent 2 years teaching reception children and 3 years teaching year 2 where as Key Stage Leader, I was responsibile for and oversaw the teaching, learning and progress of 540 year 1 and 2 children. For the past 2 years, following the birth of my son, I have spent my time working with Key Stage 2 children predominantly in years 4 and 5.
I am extremely experienced in planning individual learning for children and due to my Early Years Specialism, I have a keen interest in supporting children to overcome barriers in Maths within the 6-10 age range. Often children encounter barriers in Maths due to gaps in their learning and thus find it difficult to move on. I am adept at identifying early mathematical gaps and supporting children in overcoming them.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an enhanced and current DBS certificate available to view on request.
