Qualified Primary Teacher with B.A (Hons) in English Studies offering comprehensive English lessons

Methodology

Effective learning takes place when a student trusts their teacher and when they are treated as an individual with their very own learning needs and expectations. I want to ensure that my student reaches their full potential but does so whilst having fun and being engaged in exciting and tailored learning experiences. I create a purposeful learning environment and differentiate my lesson structure depending on the student's learning style, preferences and needs. I endeavour to make every lesson engaging by using a range of resources, assessment strategies and contexts that inspire.

Background

I am an enthusiastic and fully qualified primary teacher, registered with the Scottish Teaching Council. I have received excellent training in delivering robust and engaging teaching across all curricular areas and I have worked with children and young adults across a variety of stages and contexts.

James Kolmer said, “no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship”. This is a philosophy I whole-heartedly espouse as a primary school teacher. Having majored in children’s literature by way of an English degree and having gained much experience in the realms of teaching and volunteering, I firmly believe that communication and the building of relationships are the core foundations of learning, teaching and human connection. I have extensive experience facilitating writing workshops as a volunteer and a teacher and I have also held an after-school, 'Write Club'.

Being a primary school teacher, I am qualified to teach language and literacy; specifically systematic synthetic phonics and developing reading skills. Nothing is more exhilarating than hearing my students' fluency improving as well as watching their enjoyment of reading blossom!

Dominique's CV

POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA IN EDUCATION (PRIMARY)
August 2017-June 2018
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland
I gained experience across three different councils and a broad range of stages during my PGDE year. On campus, I gained invaluable theoretical knowledge in areas such as pedagogical approaches, theories of learning and child development, as well as an awareness of current educational issues. Placement provided me with ample opportunity to put this learning into practice in different areas and stages of the curriculum.

BACHELOR OF ARTS (HONS.) ENGLISH: 2.1
2010-2014
Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland
Developed a thorough knowledge of the history of literature (English, Anglo- Irish, American and emerging postcolonial cultures). Extensive knowledge of children’s and young adult literature and literature from the Victorian period as well as sociological and cultural research in these areas.

WORK EXPERIENCE
CLASS TEACHER - PRIMARY 3
Mosshead Primary School | Aug 2018 - June 2019
I have gained a deep understanding of each individual pupil in my class and their barriers to learning. I made long term plans to address these barriers and adapt regularly, being responsive to the student's progress. I supported students with additional support needs and worked hard to ensure all children felt safe and secure in my classroom. I have observed colleagues in different stages to see how they differentiate and developed an understanding of the pedagogical philosophy and purpose of
differentiated instruction through reading and professional discussion.

STUDENT TEACHER
Hyndland Primary School | Feb 2018 - May 2018
I taught a P7 class which included a Leavers Show and also attending a 5-day residential experience with 65 children in Dounans Outdoor Centre. I assessed students, planned for next steps and prepared children for transition to secondary school.

Westerton Primary School| Nov 2017 - Dec 2017
I taught a P2/1 composite class using a play to learn approach inspired by Froebelian and Reggio Emilia principles. I taught reading through a holistic approach, coupled with a phonics scheme. I worked with children with additional support needs and ensured differentiation across my teaching.
