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 every subject in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, including SATS revision for Year 2 and Year 6. I also have experience tutoring Key Stage 3 and GCSE English Language.
I have a particular strength in teaching Early reading and Phonics, and achieved very high phonics results whilst teaching in Year 1 for 3 years. Learning to read is the gateway to so much pleasure and enjoyment and I feel really 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 now tutor English skills from Primary level to GCSE and am confident in supporting all ages with this.
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 a Primary age level, and also in preparation for the skills test needed to begin teacher training.
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 childs needs, interests and abilities so that they make great progress, increase their confidence and enjoy learning.
