I am naturally creative and always try to develop engaging, well-paced lessons that hook pupils from the beginning and allow them to explore and offer their own input. I can cover all subject areas in Early Years and KS1.
I am a fully qualified Primary School Teacher, with 3 years classroom experience. I have taught in KS1 and also in Early Years. I have an excellent pass rate in the Phonics screening and have experience in Year 2 SATS.
Cancellations require 24 hours notice or lesson will be charged.
I am passionate about nurturing talent and inspiring a great work ethic in children. I create imaginative and engaging lessons which draw upon key skills from my theatrical background. I am committed to creating a safe and supportive space where pupils can explore their capabilities and reach their full potential. I am dedicated to ensuring the social and mental well-being of my pupils so I place an emphasis on respect and acceptable behaviour. I am highly motivated, very well organised and I relish the opportunity to challenge myself in a new environment.

Perfect! Our daughter, 5, loves Samantha’s friendly, fun teaching style - it’s great to see her smiling and laughing all the way through these sessions. Samantha keeps her constantly engaged, uses lots of praise and different resources and we’re already seeing the benefits in her speech, phonics and writing. Our daughter really looks forward to lessons with Samantha, we highly recommend her.
Looking forward to these sessions so much! :)
