Information about Karen
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Working with children and helping them feel more confident during lessons is really important for me as a teacher. Every child learns at a different pace and as teachers it is really important that we acknowledge this and that we are truly understanding in order to help them progress with their learning.
This is why as a teacher I put my childrens needs first. Moreover, I am patient, approachable and I adapt my lessons easily to best suit my learners. I love to be creative when teaching and I ensure progress is made by knowing my pupils right from the beginning.
I follow the National Curriculum to help plan my lessons and to gage where your child should be. I also believe in transparency and working together as a team in order to help all pupils succeed.
Availability: I am mostly available on the weekends, however I can offer weekday availability too.
Please feel free to contact me for tutoring during the school holidays.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I am a fully qualified teacher (PGCE and QTS) and I am currently working in Key Stage 2. I have previous experience working in Key Stage 1 too. I have prepared children for Phonics Screening tests, Year 2 SATS, Year 4 MTC and Year 6 SATS.

Feedback For Karen (5)
Karen has been a huge help for my 7 year old daughter. She follows the curriculum and has really engaged with my daughter who now looks forward to her next lesson! I highly recommend her.
Karen is friendly, calm, patient and professional. Our daughter immediately warmed to her which was great, and reassuring. She is always on time and shares feedback either in person briefly after the lesson and/or via messages with pictures explaining what`s happened in the lesson. We are really happy to have found Karen for support through the summer holidays. Very happy with her teaching style and warm and friendly demeanour. Wouldn`t hesitate to recommend.
Karen has diligently prepared for sessions with our year 3 son, ensuring she addresses his development needs at the same time as engaging him into fun learning exercises. For a slightly reluctant learner, we have been encouraged to see his level of engagement and credit Karen`s style and effort.
My five year old daughter has been having tuition from Karen for around three months. She has been a great support to her learning and also focuses well on areas that require improvements. Karen is a brilliant tutor who is engaging and patient. My daughter is making wonderful progress and continues to enjoy her lessons with her.
Karen is a fabulous tutor for our son, she is engaging, fun and our son really enjoys learning with her. She has fun, interesting ways to teach that he enjoys and asks him lots of questions.
