My teaching method is very varied and diverse and is dependent upon the requirements and individual learning style of the student. With a Degree in Teaching and Learning and experience of teaching disengaged students, I am able to offer creative activities which follow up to date curricula.
I have been tutoring for over two years with a successful tutoring businness. With severeal years of Primary Classroom experience and many years working with children with additional needs, I can offer a very student centred, patient and nurturing approach.
