Information about Sarah
I am a 51 year old passionate Primary Trained Teacher who is currently working as a Teaching Assistant and Private Tutor. I live with my husband and Springer Spaniel. I am committed to helping and encouraging children and adult learners to be the best they can be.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have 25 years Primary Experience in the UK and have been tutoring privately to a wide age of pupils for approximately 7 years. I usually teach Maths and/or English but am trained in all subjects within the Early Years and Primary phase. I have taught children in KS3 KS4 if they need more support and also have experience of teaching a deaf child and am familiar with working with children who have Dyslexia, Asperger`s and Autism.
Feedback For Sarah (1)
Sarah tutored my daughters for 2 weeks only and then sent a text on the day she was due to come saying she didnt think she could tutor them any more as we were already doing everything we needed to do. Found this a bit bizarre as I believe all children can learn more, hence why we got a tutor. Spent £30 to get her details from the site which ended up being a waste.
What I will say is that the 2 sessions she did do were very professional and my daughters took to her, which is why it was all the more disappointing.
Tutors Response :
I entered into tutoring the 2 girls in good faith but quickly realised that, although I currently work in a Nursery and have plenty of experience with children of all ages, half an hour per girl per week isn`t going to make a vast difference to their learning as they were so young and not even 4 years old when I began teaching them. I feel time from their parents is what would be more valuable at their stage in development. I would be happy, of course, to consider tutoring them once they start school, should their parents still feel it would be beneficial.
Even though my son has only been going to Sarah for a few weeks, she has always been very approachable and encourages him with his learning and improving his confidence in the areas he is struggling.
