Information about Loren
I am an experienced primary school teacher currently teaching in an Outstanding primary school in Leeds and I have been tutoring for two years in addition to my working role. I have found tutoring a rewarding experience and I have supported children to reach the expected standard and beyond by the end of the school year. This has included supporting children for SATs tests and entrance exams.
I am a friendly and engaging person, prepared to think outside the box and make learning an enjoyable and durable experience. I have extensive experience of planning and delivering lessons that engage and challenge children and allow them to deepen their understanding of a range of subjects. I have extensive subject knowledge across key stage two, and I am knowledgable in the end of year expectations for a variety of year groups. I successfully use assessment to inform both progress and next steps in learning and can confidently identify at what level a child is working and what interventions will enable them to progress towards or past the expected standard for their age and stage.
I understand that family life can be busy and unpredictable and with this is mind I am flexible and adaptable and do not charge a cancellation fee.
I have completed a postgraduate teaching degree at Leeds University and was graded outstanding. Prior to this, I worked for the local authority supporting children both at home and in school following obtaining a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Primary Education Studies.
Availability: Evenings and weekends.
I am currently committed to a long term client on a Monday evening 4-6pm.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: My tutoring experience so far has given me the opportunity to work with a range of young people with a range of personal an academic goals.
My previous working role before starting a PGCE was within Children`s services, working with families who were considered the most deprived in the area with a range of complex issues. This included parenting and non-engagement with education. I worked intensively with children with additional needs such as Autism and ADHD and also with children with a reluctance to engage with education for a range of reasons.
I have also worked as an Early Intervention Practitioner, assisting families with learning through play, weaning, healthy eating, boundaries, routines and positive parenting.
I have a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Primary Education Studies, and have almost completed a School Direct PGCE in Primary Teaching with QTS. Studying the School Direct route means that I have spent the majority of the course working within a school teaching full time.
Feedback For Loren (2)
Loren was great at helping my sister prep for her year 6 English SAT exams, mainly focusing on reading. She identified areas which needed improvement and helped my sister find ways to tackle the harder questions in the exam. Loren really has a passion for teaching and this is visible in the way she plans and approaches each teaching session. She is punctual, which is always excellent. My sister thoroughly enjoyed the lessons with Loren. I would not hesitate in recommending Loren to other parents.
We have been using Loren for around 5 weeks now. Although Loren is a newly qualified teacher, she is fantastic in her method and approach to tutoring. She currently tutors my twin boys in maths. They absolutely love their tutoring sessions with her. Loren is really engaging, motivated and clearly has a passion for teaching. She has tailored the lessons to cover the topics being taught by my boys school. She has really helped my children understand some of the mathematical concepts that they weren`t as comfortable with. She also tries to stretch my children, so that work doesn`t feel too easy, something that is really important to me. My children thoroughly enjoy their lessons with Loren, and are always looking forward to their next session with her. I would not hesitate in recommending Loren to other parents.
