Information about Gemma

I`m a qualified, experienced and dedicated primary teacher turned private tutor who does not believe in a `one-size-fits-all` approach to teaching. I work with children to build their confidence at a pace that they are comfortable with and help them reach their goals with bespoke lessons that are tailored to their unique needs.

As well as providing professional tutoring services online, I create content and resources at Positive Primary Kids to help parents understand and navigate their child`s learning obstacles, improve wellbeing and help them thrive as confident, happy and successful learners.

Be a lifelong learner. That is my motto.

I am a big believer in encouraging children to be brave, not be afraid of making mistakes and stepping out of their comfort zone (even just a little step!). Sometimes they just need a little encouragement to start believing in themselves and being ambitious.

Availability: Term time, I am available 11am - 7.30pm Monday-Friday.

During school holidays, availability and session times may vary.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have over a decade of teaching experience (13+ years at the time of writing) ranging from teaching English as a Foreign Language to children and young adults in South Korea for 2 years and becoming a qualified primary school teacher in 2008.

My primary experience as a class teacher is mainly with years 4-6. I worked at two, vastly different South East London primary schools for several years each.

Consistently graded, `outstanding` I take pride in planning learning for children as individuals and tailoring lessons carefully to their needs.

During my time as a class teacher, I was privileged to work with children of all abilities, backgrounds and ethnicities.

I have heaps of effective, positive strategies for building young learners` confidence and igniting a passion for life long learning!
