Information about Verity

I graduated in 2006 from Queen Mary University of London after achieving a 2:1 in English and History. It took me a couple of years before I found my passion for teaching, a passion that was made even more acute, by having worked in more conventional jobs, which I didn`t enjoy after leaving university. I have a passion for horses and riding and am currently training to be a riding instructor. I have two lovely young horses, I love writing, reading, cooking and walking my dogs as well as teaching. I love living in the country and taking part in all aspects of country life.
I have a very individualised style and approach to tutoring. I believe that each child is completely unique and that if you find the right key, whether its jumping on a trampoline whilst reciting their times tables or making a colourful mind map to understand how the bodies immune system works, you can unlock their understanding. I enjoy tutoring because you see children really blossom and the progress they make with one on one support is truely astounding and lovely to be a part of. I believe communication between parent and tutor as well as tutor and tutee is key to success. If you would like to discuss my methods further please don`t hesitate to call for an informal chat.

I have been a freelance educational journalist for three years now writing for `Primary teacher Update` magazine which is a very reflective exercise and I thoroughly enjoy it.
In September 2012 I moved to a school in Ringwood and was the Year 3 Year Leader covering a maternity position.
(September 2013) As I`ve moved into my fifth year as a qualified teacher, I have now settled into a different school in Ringwood and am back in Year 5 enjoying supporting a wide variety of different abilities of children.

My daughter had her first session with Verity this afternoon and was over the moon that within one hour she finally understood something her school teacher had been trying to teach her for weeks. I have never heard my daughter talk so enthusiastically about maths before so Verity Has obviously clicked well with her.

I am so glad we have found her she has amazing patience and understanding. We look forward to continuing working with her.
