My teaching method is interactive and supportive, using my experience to give practical, real life examples. I am able to give support with teacher training, early years qualifications or Education Studies at degree level.
I have been a teacher in the Early Years for 13 years, both in Nursery and within a Primary School setting. I have supported teacher training students on practice and mentored newly qualified teachers too. I can give support with assignments as well as practical guidance.
