I am a qualified primary school teacher with a Bachelor of Education (Honours) Degree and I have 10 years` teaching experience.
I have taught in both Key Stages 1 and 2 and have experience of working as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Leading Maths Teacher and Advance Maths Centre Teacher. I have experience and understanding of the range of pupils` academic abilities and the challenges pupils face and how best to engage them in their learning.
For the past 10 years I have been tutoring students from Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 in mainly Maths but also in English. I have prepared pupils for end of year KS2 optional SATs, Year 6 SATs and Grammar School entrance exams, as well as guiding pupils through their transition in to high school. Up until 2015 under the old grading system, all my pupils secured Level 4 in their Year 6 SATs tests with some having gained Level 5. Under the new and more challenging SATS grading system my students have scored at least 98 or higher with 100 being the pass mark.
I am a volunteer Governor at my own children`s school and have been for the past 6 years. This role has given me the opportunity to use my skills and experience as a teacher to support the school effectively. Last year, within the same school, I worked closely with Year 6 pupils and their teacher, in my role as a supply Maths booster teacher. I was employed to work with small groups of students, working on the new 2016 curriculum, in preparation for the new SATs. Their pass scores overall were excellent.
In the past few years I taught Maths to Year 2 and Year 3 pupils in a local primary school on a part-time basis.
My approach to private tutoring is dependent on the individual pupil`s personality and needs. I work hard to boost a pupil`s confidence in their own abilities which builds strong foundations for future independent learning.
My sessions are structured and planned in advance following on from the previous lesson`s outcomes. I try and keep the sessions relaxed and enjoyable. Each session will often start or end with a fun game to reinforce a pupil`s understanding of a topic.
I currently only tutor in my own home.
I offer my first session for free.

review(s) for Annette.
My son had his first session last week with Annette and to be honest, I explained exactly to him what she would be doing `helping him to make things easier at school`. Annette opened her door, with a big smile and straight away, Oliver was put at ease and so was I. I could tell they were going to get on. Initially Annette telephoned me prior to the session starting and we discussed at length how she could help him, what was his strengths and weaknesses and what he struggled with. I picked Oliver up from his session, he was beaming, ear to ear. He raved on about how many stars he had, what he was been awarded and how well he had done, how phonics made sense. Annette had achieved her first goal, giving him confidence. The feedback I was given was so reassuring and I felt proud. Oliver that night read his reading book, where sometimes he would guess words, read his book without any errors and with ease. The next few days saw him go up a band in his reading and excelled in areas at school he had previously struggled with. Oliver is so looking forward to his next session and said he felt `she made things make sense to him`. I can`t wait to see what the next few weeks/months brings. I have already recommended Annette to friends. Thank you Annette.
Super tutor really connects with her pupil.
Absolutely fantastic teacher, loads of patience and is very kind and encouraging, in two weeks she has helped my daughter tremendously, we cannot thanks her enough. Ten out of ten !!!
Annette is amazing. She`s really bonded with our daughter and she`s already becoming more confident with her work. My daughter beams with a smile the whole lesson time and looks forward to the next.
A wonderful tutor, who really connected with my son. I`ve never seen him so enthusiastic about learning! After only 2 sessions he`s already more confident and improving well. Thank you Annette.
