Experienced tutor in English and Maths Key Stage 1 and 2, based in Leicester

Methodology

I have excellent communication skills that allows me to deal with all children, regardless of their ability, and with families of all backgrounds.

My teaching methods engage all learning styles through online tools i.e use of different learning sites to stimulate visual and auditory learners and paper based tools like use of worksheets to practice neat writing.

I ensure children have the determination to build self confidence to tackle anything.

I allow every child to be stretched and challenged at a pace that is right for them.

Experience

I have had 16 years experience as an ESOL tutor at Leicester College teaching English as a foreign language to adults. I am currently working as a teaching assistant in a primary school supporting children in literacy and numeracy in year 4.

I am multilingual and can communicate effectively in English, French, German and Spanish.

I hold a recent DBS certificate dated September 2019.
