Experienced Primary School teacher offering primary tuition, SATs and 11+ preparation h

Methodology

I assess my students to gain an idea of where the areas of need are and plan my lessons accordingly. I use a range of materials - including ICT resources. I have a lot of experience with a range of primary aged children and feel confident I can pitch the learning appropriately. The lessons would have a review of the learning, new learning and work toward mastery of the topic area. I encourage and support throughout.

Experience

I am an experienced primary school teacher with tutoring experience. I have taught EYFS, KS1 and 2 and have experience with EAL and ESOL students. Children in my classes have enjoyed much success and enjoyment of learning. I graduate in Biological sciences and have a PGCE.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £180

Details

Rates are per student. I would offer a free 30 minute 'assessment' lesson.
