I have qualified teacher status and am registered with the government`s teaching agency, having graduated with a Bachelor of Education over twenty years ago. I have extensive teaching experience within primary and secondary schools both at home and abroad. Because I have worked in Early Years and KS1 a great deal I have a lot of knowledge of phonics, including the different programmes taught in schools, such as Jolly Phonics, Letters and Sounds and Read Write Inc. I am fully converse with the National Curriculum and have previously tutored up to GCSE level. In addition, as a supply teacher I have worked in secondary schools and have a thorough understanding of the needs of the young people I teach. I have worked extensively with children who have struggled at school for a number of reasons, including not speaking English as a primary language . Having qualified teacher status means that I have been trained specifically to teach children and young people although, since graduating, I have gone on to update my skills and am now qualified to teach Basic Skills (literacy and numeracy). Currently I work as a Supply Teacher in the North East of England and have regular posts in two different schools, I offer private tuition because it allows me to build on a job that I love and allows me that bit more flexibility that I might otherwise not get.
