Hello to you all; let me introduce myself: my name is Claire Boyd and I am a teacher of 14 years experience. I am a teacher, predominantly of English, but am additionally able to offer Mathematics, Sciences, French, Spanish and Humanities subjects to varying degrees. I am also a teacher of children with special educational needs and absolutely love working with young people, whatever those needs might be. My largest areas of experience within this field include teaching children on the autistic spectrum, those with severe learning difficulties and rarer genetic conditions such as Fragile X.
In my current, part time teaching role I am employed to teach a mixture of one-to-one tutoring sessions which enables me to support students with special educational needs in whatever areas of the curriculum they feel they need help with, alongside some whole class teaching which helps me to keep abreast of the 'bigger picture' educationally and ensures my methods remain fresh.
My specialisms are in English, Design Technology, Food and Nutrition and Biology to GCSE level, and I can also offer excellent tutoring in Mathematics, French, Spanish and Humanities at Key Stage 3 and, in particular, those looking to pass entrance examinations to gain access to particular secondary schools.
I am a Master's student of Behavioural Analysis and consequently have excellent knowledge of the behaviours and habits required for learning to take place. You will find that we have an enjoyable time developing good study habits and understanding the variety of ways in which learning works best for you.
Currently I teach part time in an Independent School in North Wales but I have previously worked in the state sector in both primary and secondary schools. My varied experiences within the education sector as a whole have prepared me well for the work I shall be doing with Tutorfair; I have provided one-to-one tuition many times before privately.
Living in North Wales does not mean I am unable to help you; should you be looking for short term, intensive tuition there is the possibility of me travelling to you, or alternatively I can provide Skype tuition via the internet.
If you are interested in working with me then I would be delighted to have a conversation with you so that we may get to know each other and you can decide if you would like to continue the working relationship.
