I am an outstanding teacher with over 20 years experience of teaching and leading in Primary schools both in the UK and internationally. I have successfully tutored both individuals and small groups of primary aged pupils, including those preparing for SATs and the 11+. I ensure that learning is both fun and challenging using a range of strategies and resources, with a focus on pupils applying the skills they have learnt in different contexts. Through effective assessment and high expectations, I am able to identify learning needs and potential in every pupil, ensuring that every lesson is personalised for the learner. My approach is friendly, calm and kind with a track record of forming positive relationships with those I teach, resulting in motivated and successful pupils.

Experience: Since graduating from university in 1996 I have successfully taught the English National Curriculum to pupils from Year 1 through to Year 6 both in the UK and internationally. During this time I have also held various leadership positions, including subject coordinator, team leader and more recently Deputy Head of Primary at the British International School Abu Dhabi, one of 55 premium schools belonging to the Nord Anglia Education family, consisting of over 1300 Primary students (63 classes). Through my leadership roles I have impacted on several whole school priorities related to teaching and learning and curriculum design, resulting in improved teaching quality and pupil outcomes.
With a reputation for being an excellent practitioner, I have had several requests or recommendations over the years made by parents for private tuition. This has enabled me to gain substantial experience of tutoring children in groups and individually of various ages (5 to 14), abilities and levels of English. In addition to this my extensive experience as a Year 6 teacher and Team Leader has enabled me to successfully prepare pupils for end of KS2 SATs and the 11+. As well as tutoring children, I also have experience of tutoring basic English skills and conversation to adults.
As a lifelong learner, always looking for fresh and innovative approaches to teaching, I endeavour to instill a love of learning in the children that I teach by ensuring they develop the confidence and skills to take on challenges that will enable them to achieve their full potential.
