Former Primary Headteacher offering Sat test preparation for KS 2 pupils in Newcastle

Methodology

My teaching methods are confidence based, finding out what a child can do and then to move that forward, so that their skill set increases and ability to tackle areas of weakness is strengthened.I teach in a relaxed and friendly manner with good humour so that both child and pupil achieve the greatest impact from their time together.

Experience

I am a Headteacher of 17 years experience in Primary Schools in North East England. I have 31 years teaching experience in Ks1 and KS2 classes. I have prepared children for Key Stage 2 sat tests for many years with great success providing help, advice, confidence and assurance when it is needed most so that children achieve their very best at a potentially stressful time. I am able to provide 1-2-1 tuition that will identify and focus on the areas of least confidence, and provide strategies to employ within the test situation to maximum effect.
