Information about Natalie
Hello, my name is Natalie, mummy of 1 little girl, a dog named Teddy and wife. When I`m not teaching (or tutoring) I like to walk, cycle or just sit down and relax.
I`ve lived in Preston all of my life and have seen many changes through out the years, one of the biggest changes being how many schools have been built and all the children that go to them!
I enjoy reading and studying the new things that are capturing the attention of the young ones today and how we can use this to influence learning.
I class myself as a down to earth person with a big heart and a good sense of humour, I endeavour to put people at ease and create a positive learning environment.
Feel free to contact me regarding any issues you may want to talk through.
Availability: Evenings and Weekends. Please note, at this time when there is great need for tutors it may be necessary to pair students up. This will only be 2/3 students maximum and all leaners will be of a similar level and ability.
NOTE: For GCSE Maths Higher level students I often enlist the help of another teacher who is fully
DBS checked, this wont affect your hourly rate but may mean you are taught by two different teachers.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have over 10 years of teaching experience and I am constantly looking for new ways to engage students both in and out of the classroom.
I understand that revising for exams can be a stressful time and I am here to help. I can support English (KS3 and GCSE Lang and Lit), Maths (KS2 and KS3) and specialise in IT, teaching this right up to an A-Level standard. I have in-depth knowledge on the Macbeth, Jekyll and Hyde, Romeo and Juliet, A Christmas Carol and An Inspector Calls texts currently being studied in schools and have recent experience of supporting a student through their GCSE on these topics. I have also supported students through their KS1 and KS2 SATs this year which has been extremely rewarding.
I am an enthusiastic individual who enjoys helping people and has an abundance of patience. I ensure that every learner has a positive happy experience with me and I do all I can to progress learners through their learning journey and get them ready for their exams or just increase their confidence in the classroom.
I have an awareness of many of the popular examining boards and am comfortable in translating the jargon they use.
I have taught challenging students with a range of behaviour issues and have picked up some effective teaching techniques to help overcome these issues.
I struggled in school and would like to offer help to anyone who is struggling in any aspect of learning. Looking forward to helping all ages and levels in 2021/22
Feedback For Natalie (16)
Natalie was fantastic, She took my son who was struggling on a GCSE level 3 in English and in a short matter of time he was producing work his class teacher was marking at a level 7. He understood the structure and strategies required and grew in confidence. The one on one experience was just what he needed to get back on track. Due to CV19 he got an assessed grade based on previous work and current attainment prior to lockdown, passing with a level 5. However, I strongly believe with more sessions and an exam in the normal circumstances he would have been at least 1 grade higher, due to the improvements we saw. I have no hesitation in recommending Natalie, the whole experience was a positive one.
Natalie has really helped my daughters confidence with her ability in maths. My daughter leaves Nats lessons absolutely buzzing and is really beginning to overcome her block she had with maths. I cannot thank Nat enough, she is kind, patient and a great support 👏; I wish there were more teacher like her.
Natalie is a really fantastic tutor, who is very personable and helpful. My niece began to master her times tables in no time, which was lovely to see. From lesson 1 she was very eager to continue, which can only be a testament to Natalie`s teaching and personality. I am really looking forward to seeing how far she she can progress. Thank you very much Natalie! :)
Natalie has been helping my year 11 son with both GCSE English Lit and Lang as he was already behind before COVID disrupted schooling even further. She took on board all my concerns and concentrated on areas that would help him improve his chances of achieving a higher grade. I would definitely recommend her as anyone who can get my teenager to interact with them must be good!
Fantastic tutor and excellent home environment. Sorting sons maths. Best investment Ive made. It has been a difficult year and has affected study so this has helped him keep up. Lovely tutor
Natlie is a very patient , friendly and 100% dedicated tutor. She has helped my daughter a great deal and has improved her confidence in writing sentences and comprehension of questions. I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
Natalie has been providing tuition for my son for around 2 months. She has been punctual and friendly. She assessed my son to identify his weak points which she is addressing at the moment. I would definitly recommend Natalie.
Natalie is so great for our daughter. She was so very low on self confidence even though shed been predicted level 8 English. Natalie has completely resorted our daughters self confidence and she is actually enjoying English again.
Amazing teacher, my daughter enjoys her lessons and seems to stay focused throughout the lesson. I hope to see improvement in her grades by the end of the year :)
Natalie is doing a FANTASTIC job tutoring our youngest son. Hes a typical "boy" hates school rushes through his homework and is abit behind from the others in his class he would rather be playing with a tool box and tools but Natalie has made BRILLIANT process with him. They get on like a house on fire they`ve developed a really good relationship and she makes learning fun. Our sons progress has been amazing. His teachers have noticed his progress, his writing is so neat now he has come on leaps and bounds. I would HIGHLY recommend Natalie!!!!!!! We cant thank her enough!!!!
Natalie has started working with our son about 4 weeks ago. I`m very pleased with her work. My son is also enjoying his classes. We used to have 1 session a week and now we have 2. Glad we came across Natalie:)
Natalie was a lovely lady, always punctual and willing to help. She often spent longer than her hour to make sure my son understood. Would definitely recommend.
VERY HELPFULL AND ALWAYS ON TIME FOR APPOINTMENTS
