Information about Esther


My name is Esther. I am currently an English teacher at an OFSTED rated `Good` secondary school. I have been formally teaching for 3 years, but I have been working in schools (in and out of England) since 2016; either as a tutor, mentor or as a Debate Mate coordinator!

My teaching style is simple: assess skills, practice skills, reassess practiced skills. I place an emphasis on lots of low stakes quizzing to assess students` knowledge, understanding and application. According to Bjork, E. L., & Bjork, R. A. (2011), low stakes quizzes is influential in students` long term memory retention.

Within my classroom, I also place a lot of emphasis on praise. People on a whole thrive off praise, and I ensure that my students realise that the hard work that they put into my lessons is worth it and they should be proud of it.

Lastly, I make it important to ensure I communicate with you - their parent or guardian. The Education Endowment Foundation found that `Parents play a crucial role in supporting their children’s learning, and levels of parental engagement are consistently associated with better academic outcomes.`. Therefore, I make it part of the package to ensure I keep you updated with your child`s progression and communicate with you the things that can be done to either maintain your child`s level of progress or improve it.

In a nutshell, I am someone with a passion for English but also a passion for working with young people. I believe that these two passions come together to make an effective teacher.
