I am passionate about helping children achieve their potential and have also always been interested in children's social and emotional development and wellbeing. I am a warm and responsible person and I always enjoy making tutoring sessions fun so that children look forward to their lessons each week.
I have been a key stage 1 primary school teacher for 3 years and I have also provided private tutoring for children in year 3, 4 and 5 with emphasis on preparation for 11+ exams.
I also have a degree in Psychology from the University of Bristol which has always given me an added interest in the theories of children's learning and development.
