Experience

I have never been a tutor before, but I think I would make an excellent tutor as I can offer my knowledge and understanding of the different curricular areas taught in Primary schools; I can offer an enthusiastic and inclusive approach to learning incorporating many of my own interests such as literacy, drama, and music, as well as the child's interests; and I appreciate the value of play in teaching and learning, and aim to ensure play is incorporated in my learning experiences.

The establishment I was based in in Queenstown, New Zealand, provided me with opportunities to enhance my knowledge and understanding of the Reggio philosophy and allowed me to attend Professional Development events that provided me with opportunities to enhance my skills as a practitioner. For example, I attended a Maori workshop, gained a First Aid certificate, and participated in meetings based on developing children’s social competences.

Whilst working with children in both Scotland and in New Zealand, I have strived to provide the best possible education and support to all learners in my care, helping them academically, socially, and emotionally. Above all, I have a passion for working with children, equipping them with the skills they need to reach their potential.

I enjoy a challenge and like learning something new every day. I am a passionate person, who demonstrates an enthusiastic manner to any task I am given. I always show a high level of commitment in my work and I value communication. In addition to this, I am patient, efficient and caring towards others. I am a highly organised person, who has been praised for time management and punctuality by previous employers.

My hobbies include reading, cooking, yoga, kayaking and walking. I also love music; I used to sing in a choir and play the saxophone. One of my main passions in life is travelling; my partner and I have recently returned from New Zealand where we lived for almost two years. We were also lucky enough to travel during those two years away from home; we visited Dubai, Singapore, Australia and Fiji.
