Primary Education Graduate available for maths and/or english tutoring in and around Glasgow

Methodology

I believe strongly in active learning- that children learn by doing. I like to start my lessons with a fun, interactive activity/ game, followed by the main teaching input and then finished off with an activity to test the child's understanding to enable next steps to be identified.

Experience

I am a Primary Education Graduate from the University of Strathclyde. I will be graduating in June with a first class honours degree (BA). I have been an au pair in Barcelona for three months where I tutored english to two children. I was invited back the next year.
