Information about Chris
I am an experienced teacher with a kind, nurturing and positive attitude. As a member of the prestigious Golden Egg Academy for children`s authors, and as a member of the Society of Children`s Book Writers and Illustrators, I have keen interest in creative writing at all levels. I pride myself on creating engaging activities that inspire and accelerate progress in learning, particularly in English. Through praise, listening to the pupil and with realistic target-setting I believe anyone can overcome their barriers to learning to achieve more. At the heart of learning is a strong and understanding relationship between teacher and pupil.
Availability: I am available weekdays after school and at weekends.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have an MA in Writing for Performance and Publication as well as a BA in Fine Art (with 50% art history study). I also have Qualified Teacher Status and a PG Cert in Education. I have many years teaching experience in schools in and out of London, including in an international school in Quito, Ecuador. I have experience leading Key Stage 2 and Curriculum. I have worked with children with a variety of special educational needs, as well as children with English as an additional language. Furthermore I help accelerate the learning of children who are gifted and talented.Contact this Tutor
