Information about Catherine

I have been a teacher for over 30 years. Until recently I was also a deputy headteacher. Unfortunately I am unable to commit to full time teaching currently but still have the passion to continue my chosen field, hence now tutoring. In September I am returning to teach year 5/6 two days a week.
I currently tutor a number of pupils, covering KS1 reading, writing and maths; KS2 writing and maths, including a focus on developing cursive handwriting. For younger pupils this develops from writing in shaving foam and sand, ‘painting’ with wet brushes outside on the patio to develop large motor control until they are then ready to develop correct pencil grip and practise writing on paper. My real passion is teaching maths, giving the children time to play with the numbers and develop an understanding of place value and what effect operations have on a number, then I believe they are less fearful of the subject and can also develop a love of playing with numbers AND getting correct answers!
I am also supporting pupils who need to learn spelling rules in order that their writing meets expected levels for their age group.
I live in Heswall. I have 2 grown up children (one working away and one at university, so the house will be free of distractions!

Availability: Available Thursday and Friday evenings and occasional Monday evenings.

After School

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have been a primary school teacher for over 30 years. I have taught from F1 to Year 6. I was a deputy headteacher for 7 years.
If your child is struggling to keep up with age-related curriculum then I can support him/her. I will use a lot of practical activities to engage your child and ensure a deeper understanding.
I am also able to support those pupils who wish to gain a greater depth of understanding, especially those facing SATS or 11+.
I am able to support pupils in KS3 Maths also.

DBS (CRB) Check: Yes
