Information about Emma

I am a qualified and experienced primary school teacher. I graduated from Exeter University in 2007 with an honours degree in mathematics and later undertook a PGCE at Canterbury Christ Church University which I passed with distinction.

I am also a KS2 National Curriculum SATs marker and my performance has been graded ‘excellent’. Being an examiner has been a hugely valuable experience as it has highlighted common misconceptions and errors made by children in their tests. I apply this knowledge within my teaching and help equip pupils with sound exam technique.

I am friendly, patient and approachable and I aim to build a positive relationship with each pupil I teach. I empathise with the struggles often associated with learning and my teaching style lends itself to creating a supportive and enjoyable environment which challenges pupils to reach their full potential.

Availability: I am available most weekday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have over ten years` experience as a KS2 full-time teacher, three of those as a specialist maths teacher. I have a thorough understanding of the National Curriculum and endeavour to keep up to date with any changes that take place. I have taught a whole spectrum of abilities and have experience in successfully preparing children for SATs and 11+ tests in Dorset and Wiltshire with an exceptionally high success rate.

For 11+ preparation, I also offer Mock Test mornings and workshops during school holidays.

I have a tangible passion for teaching and a wealth of knowledge and experience with teaching children in Years 4, 5 and 6. I bring energy and enthusiasm to my lessons and aim to inspire pupils to be actively interested in learning. I aim to build each pupil’s confidence and enthusiasm for maths and English both in school and in life outside of school. I have high expectations of my pupils and seek commitment and a positive attitude.
