Information about Hayley
Hi, Im Hayley and I love to teach and tutor!
I am a qualified teacher with 6 years of Primary teaching experience. During this time I have been fortunate to develop a wealth of skills and understanding across both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, in both a mainstream Primary school setting and a Generic Special School setting.
Throughout my teaching, I have led creative subject areas such as Art, Music and D+T and I have created my own Phonics afterschool booster sessions and lunchtime maths sessions, alongside promoting and delivering our Reading At Home and Homework Policy across the school.
In addition, I have worked with a range of learning needs and I know how important it is to recognise each child as an individual in order to understand how they best learn, so that I am able to adapt my teaching to meet their needs.
Online tuition allows me to be available to more students that need that extra bit of support. However, not only that, it is much easier for parents as no travelling is involved, you are able to be present during the sessions and children love to learn with technology not to mention the whole world is ever increasingly learning and working online nowadays!
I like to make my sessions fun, engaging and approachable, to encourage discussion. This way, any misconceptions can be picked up quickly and worked on together, as well as informing my assessment when considering what steps to take in the following session.
Usually, we will begin with a warm up video, before moving onto a retrieval activity to build on any previous learning, then use interactive flipchart pages and activities before ending with a fun game.
Finally, confidence is key when it comes to learning. I pride myself in creating nurturing, safe spaces when I tutor online, where children feel comfortable to make mistakes and ask the questions that they may feel reluctant to in a classroom setting. After all, there is no such thing as mistakes, only lessons to be learnt!
Availability: I am very flexible and am available throughout the week and weekend. Please contact me to discuss when might be best for you and your child.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I am currently a teacher in an SEN Primary setting. I am passionate about supporting children with a wide range of abilities and have experience in supporting children with difficulties in Cognitive and Learning, Communication and Interaction, Social and Emotional and Sensory, most specifically, supporting children with Autism. I have also worked in a mainstream Primary setting, working with year 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 pupils and have had a range of training during this time, some of which has included Literacy/ Phonics, Early Writing Skills, Autism Provision, GDPR, Cued Articulation, Safeguarding Level 1 and White Rose Maths.
To achieve my goal of becoming a teacher, I have attained 10 GCSEs, A-C, 1 AS Level (C), 3 A Levels (BCC), a 2:1 English BA (Hons) degree at Manchester Metropolitan University and secured my PGCE at Keele University.

Feedback For Hayley (2)
My daughter has enjoyed her tutoring sessions with Hayley. She has adapted the lessons to make it accessible and engaging for my daughter who has learning difficulties. My daughter struggles with engaging and focusing on her lessons for a long period of time. Hayley has managed to make the lessons fun and entertaining for my daughter to stay engaged. She has prepared visual materials with make learning more appealing and fun, this has been very helpful for my daughters learning. She also sends weekly certificates which encourages my daughter to want to do more each week.
I wasnt looking for a tutor who simply educates my son, but I was looking for a tutor that would inspire my son and would motivate him to learn. Hayley is exactly the tutor that I was looking for. Her lessons are very well prepared, interactive, fun - exactly what a child in my sons age enjoys, likes. Very important for me as a parent is seeing my son enjoying the lessons, seeing progresses and these progresses being noticed by his school teacher. Im very thankful for the very detailed feedback provided after each lesson.
