Experienced Primary School teacher in Borehamwood offering KS1 and 2 tuition and extra support for children with additional needs

Methodology

I am calm and patient and expect the very best of my students. I teach English and Maths and also excel in mentoring children in my classes. If a child has difficulties in learning, I will explore other avenues, so that my students achieve his/her very best. I mostly teach 1-1 as I find that I can tailor my lessons to particular students, especially if they are having difficulties with learning.

Experience

I am a very experienced primary school teacher who has been offering tuition for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 students.
I am qualified to teach both Key Stages and have taught in mainstream schools. I am also very experienced in teaching children who need Intervention and Booster lessons and are struggling to keep up with their school work.
