Katherine (Tutor in Derbyshire)
I am a caring, passionate and empathetic teacher who would love the opportunity to work with a child, or a very small group, on a one-to-one basis.
I am very passionate about providing children with the very best education that is best for them as individuals. As a teacher myself, I understand that in the classroom environment there isn`t always the opportunity to adapt to every child`s learning style, to personalise learning to their interests or take things at a pace that suits them.
My aim as a tutor:
. To build upon existing knowledge as well as work and methods done at school.
. To use a variety of resources including games, ICT and practical, hands on activities.
. Work through tasks visually, orally or practically (or a combination!) depending on what suits the pupil best.
. To provide the parent or guardian with any support I am able to give.
. To aid any additional needs children with the best support I can. (I have experience with dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, ADHD and ADD as well as visual and auditory impairments)
What I will cover:
. Reading comprehension
. Test preparation
I look forward to hearing from you.
