Hello! My name is Rebecca. I`m a qualified primary school teacher with more than 10 years of teaching experience both in a classroom and in a home setting.
I have recently taken up tutoring with an aim of tutoring home educated and flexi-schooled children during the day.
I can also offer evenings and weekends for school educated children.
I offer all primary based subjects (i.e to suit ages 4-11), such as English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, RE, PE...
I can also teach beginner`s French, German, Spanish and recorder.
I will travel to your home to tutor your child or children, so that he/she/they feel relaxed in familiar surroundings. This saves you the hassle of loading everybody into the car to drive to my house! I`m based in Ibstock but can travel within the East Midlands (within reason).
For home educated or flexi-schooled children I can tutor at either your house or if you`re arranging a home ed meet (for example at a soft play centre or leisure complex) I am happy to tutor small groups from this location.
I have worked with children from ages 3 to 11 and have plenty of experience of children with additional needs.
Parents of home educated children: A tutor is a great way to get your child that bit of extra help on top of all of the amazing things you do together. I home educated my own daughter for a while using topic based learning (rabbits and space!) We found that `work` could be combined with educational games to provide a well rounded educational experience. I can follow the National Curriculum if required, or perhaps focus on his or her areas of need, or indeed I can follow your child`s interests and use topic based learning. I`m happy to tutor both individuals and pairs or groups. Many children enjoy learning with a friend or two;; they can share ideas (and the biscuits I bring!), encourage one another and games are often more fun in threes or fours.
Parents of flexi-schooled children: A short tutoring session once or twice a week on their `home` day(s) will help to give your child the confidence he or she needs for lessons on their `school` days and you`ll still have time for the activities you have planned! I can either help them with whatever they are studying in school or I can focus on their tricky areas.
Parents of school educated children: Class sizes are increasing and it can sometimes be hard for children to `keep up`. The advantage of a tutor is that your child will receive the individual help he or she needs without fear of being teased or overlooked. I can work on their school units or focus on a particular area of learning such as inference or SPaG.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Availability: I`m available during the day for home educated and flexi-schooled children.
I`m available in the evenings and weekends for school educated children.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have worked as a teacher for 12 years, working with children from ages 3-11. I have experience of a range of special needs.
