Information about Lauren

My name is Lauren and I am an experienced Primary School Teacher teaching children aged between 5 and 11 years old. I have experience teaching Maths, English and Science in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, including SATS revision for Year 2 and Year 6. Since I began tutoring, I have also taught Key Stage 3 English and Maths for every year group and have over 2 years experience teaching this Key Stage.

I have a particular strength in teaching Early Reading and Phonics, and achieved very high phonics results whilst teaching in Year 1 for three years. Learning to read is the gateway to so much pleasure and enjoyment and I feel very passionately about helping children through the early stages of their reading journey. Through my teaching experience I am well trained in this stage of reading and different strategies that are most effective for children with different learning styles and abilities. I also have great experience preparing children for their Year 6 SATS in English Reading, Writing and SPAG.

More recently, I have been teaching English as an additional language to children overseas and have been greatly enjoying the experience. I have built a good level of resources and knowledge in this area and will be continuing to do so with many regular students I am working with each week.

I am also a very keen mathematician and love teaching Maths. When studying my PGCE, I specialised in Mathematics and completed modules at a Masters Level in this area. Therefore, I have a strong subject knowledge in teaching Maths at Primary and Secondary age level to all year groups.

I am an enthusiastic teacher who believes any child can grow and learn from individual tutoring that is engaging, relatable, exciting and personal to them. This is why I ensure that my sessions are catered to each child’s needs, interests and abilities so that they make great progress, increase their confidence and enjoy learning.

Availability: During the day, evening and weekends.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have taught in Primary Schools for over three years and I am now a 1:1 tutor in my fourth academic year of full time tutoring privately and in schools working for local councils. I also have experience as a 1:1 and class Teaching Assistant.
I have an enhanced DBS certificate and have recently completed Safeguarding training.

DBS Check: Yes

Lauren is a fantastic teacher who is warm and encouraging. It`s very easy to communicate with her about what my son`s needs are. Her teaching matches the curriculum my son studies which compliments his study in the school very well. School teacher is impressed with my son`s improvement in his literacy writing which is his weak area and his inference skill has been improved too. I love the feedback sent by her after each tuition which gives me clear idea what my son is on and how he is doing. A super teacher. I`d recommend her to anyone!

Tutors Response :

Lauren was a very lovely person and my son was very engaged during his lessons and happy to do the home work on his own. She is very patient and all her lessons were well prepared and organised. She left after each lesson a summary of what she had covered. I was very pleased and above everything else she made her lessons very pleasant for my son.

Tutors Response :

Mrs Lauren helps my 7 years old daughter English and Math. After home schooling I was worried about my daughter`s math, I have no idea how to teach her fractions. Luckily, we met Mrs Lauren, and after few lessons I can see my daughter has improved a lot and deeply understands fractions. Now Mrs Lauren also tutor her English and comprehension. Mrs Lauren is very helpful, I recommend her as 5 stars.

Tutors Response :
