Tutor in Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear

Experienced primary school teacher for all abilities

As well as many years' experience of the primary school system, including preparation for SAT tests at age 7 and 11, I have taught children in small groups and individually to develop their skills in maths and literacy. For 2 years, I worked as a Reading Recovery teacher, which meant giving one-to-one lessons tailored to individual 6-year-olds who found reading difficult.

I enjoy the satisfaction of seeing improvements in understanding, whether I am helping a child who has fallen behind or stretching a high achiever to tackle a really challenging task. The advantage of working as a tutor is that I can suit my approach to each child and use resources such as games and practical activities, providing more support than is usually possible in a busy classroom.

Over the years, I have acquired a wide selection of books, props and games to engage children's interest and to make learning fun.

In addition to maths and English, I have a science background and a love of languages. I particularly enjoy teaching primary school French and have even taught it to a small group of pre-school children! My first career was as a computer programmer, which has become really helpful recently, with the addition of programming to the ICT curriculum in primary schools.
Whatever I am teaching, my aim is to promote thinking and understanding as well as finding ways of making crucial facts memorable.
