I am an experienced teacher and have extensive experience across key stage 1 and key stage 2. I have successfully been through several OFSTED inspections. I thoroughly enjoy teaching mathematics and have received recent training in Singapore maths, which gives children the skills needed to apply maths effectively. Additionally, I have a passion for literacy writing, grammar and I am able to teach children spelling rules required for them to become successful spellers!!!. I have experience of working with children with special needs and have been able to raise the attainment of all the children in which I have taught. I have a passion for teaching and create fun lessons for children to enjoy and to meet their individual needs.
