Information about Lesley
I am very much a hands on tutor. I believe in working with the children to ensure they understand what they are learning. If this means recapping sometimes then that`s fine by me. Although planning is done, flexibility is the key. I have a bagful of resources which cover most things that I teach and the children enjoy using these to embed their learning. I have always been a great believer in that if a child starts off with an open mind and enjoys their learning, then I will help them achieve as much as they can.
Availability: I am available during the day, Monday - Friday and evenings.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I am a fully qualified teacher and tutor with over 23 years worth experience in teaching and tutoring. I love working with pre school and primary aged children and seeing them blossom with confidence. I have also recently been helping my grandson through Phonics testing and SATs.
I ran my pre school for 10 years working with children from 3 years up to school age, implementing the original Desirable Learning Outcomes of the play based early years curriculum. Since then I have spent 12 years teaching in both private and state schools teaching throughout the primary phase.
I have a BA Hons in Early Childhood Education. I have Qualified Teacher Status and am qualified to teach children from Reception through to the end of primary school. I also have a certificate in TEFL and TESOL and am qualified to teach adults.
