Dynamic and focused primary tutor with proven success!
Hello! I am a very committed teacher with over 10 years' experience in the classroom, both as an EFL and primary school teacher. I love my job and enjoy seeing the improvement in my students, who hopefully will remember me later on! I am proud of my ability to develop rapport with my pupils, engaging them with exciting lessons and maintaining a steady eye on the outcome. My years of SATs test experience has given me a comprehensive understanding of Primary school expectations and my breadth of school experiences has given me a wealth of techniques, resource and ideas.
Here is a little about my background:
After my degree, I worked as a fitness instructor in West London for a year. After realising it wasn't for me, on impulse I applied to teach English in South Korea. After just 4 days, I was there! After my 1-year contract was complete I came back to London, convinced of my new career direction. I immediately applied to the PGCE and qualified in 2007. Since, I have worked all over London, Malaysia and Thailand.
I strongly believe teachers need to have interests and hobbies, so they remain interesting to the children. I love art and regularly produce my own work which I plan to exhibit at some point. I also read lots and am currently trying to publish some of my own short stories. I love travel, Japanese anime, Korean food and learning Spanish.
