Information about Ellie
I have more than twenty years` experience as a class teacher and tutor. I particularly enjoy working with children who are anxious or need some extra help to fulfil their potential in the classroom. My school-based work has included 1:1 Pupil Premium tuition, ranging from Reception to Year 6, including SATs preparation. I also enjoy supporting children through the transition to secondary school. My approach is to cultivate confident learners using games and practical activities to develop a thorough understanding of the concepts involved. I work with children to discover gaps in learning which are easily missed in a classroom environment.
I am also a keen musician and very much enjoy using my skills to pass on my love of music-making to children and adults.
Availability: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday (not eve), Friday, Saturday(am).
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have been a primary school teacher since 1994. I have worked as a full-time and part-time class teacher, and also have experience in one-to-one support as a Pupil Premium teacher across the entire primary age range. I have several years experience in helping to prepare Year 6 pupils for SATs tests, particularly anxious pupils or those who need extra support or extra time in tests.
I also have more than ten years` experience in teaching oboe, piano(particularly beginners and up to Grade 5), recorder and preparation for Music Theory exams.
I hold an enhanced DBS certificate for children`s work at my church.

Feedback For Ellie (4)
Our son can struggle to stay focussed and with self-esteem. Ellie has been kind, patient and worked with him to ensure he makes progress in his tuition. He looks forward (mostly ;-)) to his sessions and that`s a success!

Very friendly Lady, made my daughter feel at ease from the very beginning. Patient, Intuitive and my daughter looks forward to her session every week!
Ellie has provided excellent tutoring for our 7 year old daughter. She is very gentle, approachable and kind and clearly has a wealth of experience. Our daughter who is initially quite shy on meeting new people, is very fond of her and Ellie immediately made her feel at ease.
