Information about Siobhan
I am 42 and live in Somerset.
This year I have really enjoyed life as a Teaching Assistant for a Year 4/5 class. It has really given me a chance to get up close to the Numeracy and Literacy curriculum, and to see just how children are learning.
Before becoming a school teacher I spent ten years as a computer programmer and a further eight years teaching computing to children and adults, including vulnerable adults. I enjoy writing training courses and holiday workshops for children. In my spare time I enjoy writing.
Availability: Unfortunately, due to a sudden recent change in family circumstances I am unable to tutor for the forseeble future.
Willing to travel: 12 miles
Experience: Being a Teaching Assistant has let me see the areas that children find difficult to understand, and how they learn best. I have been involved in all areas of the curriculum, and I have been heavily involved in delivering Numeracy in the class I love to see it when it suddenly `clicks` for a child!
At Christmas I took on a new student to tutor, a boy in Year 6, and his parents were delighted at his fantastic report at the end of the Summer term. His concentration, and confidence have really developed. I quickly picked up the areas that he was strong in, and the parts that we would need to work on, and every week I take along interesting activities for us to work through.
Before that, for the past seven years I taught ICT to children in Years 5 through to 8. Although my core subject is ICT, I specialise in improving skills and confidence in basic literacy and numeracy, and I have experience across the curriculum, and can also help with ongoing projects.
