Primary School and Early Years teacher with 7 years of experience offering personalised and child centred tutoring

Methodology

The most important thing for me is building a relationship with children so that I can adapt any teaching styles to suit the individual needs, interests and strengths. I believe all children have the ability to succeed and I strive to open all of the doors and possibilities for them to develop a deep understanding of the world around them.

Experience

I am a Primary school teacher with 7 years of teaching both Early Years and Primary age groups. I have taught a variety of children and children with additional needs. I thoroughly enjoy teaching children of all ages and abilities and see them form a love of learning.

Catherine's CV

Catherine Ralph

I am an enthusiastic, out-going and highly motivated primary school teacher with a Bachelor degree from the University of Chester. Over the last year I have been working as a Reception Class Teacher and prior to that as an Early Childhood Teacher in Australia, where I have learnt a great deal about working with the Early Years. I have worked with varying abilities of children including those with Special Educational Needs and children with English as an Additional Language. In my opinion, forming partnerships and communities for education is vital and an extremely powerful tool where children, teachers, families and local communities are able to work together, sharing ideas and support to make continuous improvements. In addition to this, one my main aims is to form strong bonds and connections with families to ensure a child’s learning is consistent and their diversity, background and family culture is valued and celebrated within the classroom. Forming bonds with children based on mutual respect and planning and implementing an inspiring, exciting curriculum also empowers children to succeed and strive to greatness.
