I have 8 years experience as a primary classroom teacher, having taught across the age range in London, Cambridge (University of Cambridge Primary School) and internationally (Dulwich College, Shanghai).
I have thorough knowledge of the progression through the National Curriculum from Early Years Foundation Stage up to Year 6, including preparation for SATS at each key stage. My detailed understanding enables me to work backwards with individuals to target support effectively, with proven techniques and demonstrable results.
I am adept at using diagnostic tools to identify gaps in learning. Throughout my teaching career, I have planned and run a variety of targeted interventions to meet various needs, bolstering learning in Reading, Writing and Maths.
Additionally, I have experience tutoring 1:1 for 11+, including Maths, English and Non Verbal Reasoning.
SEND: I have specific experience working 1:1 with children with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADHD and ASD. As a highly experienced teacher, I am able to use my expertise in neurodiversity to adapt my teaching methods, ensuring the very best results for the children in my care. I also equip children with practical and tailored organisational strategies to help them manage their neurodiversity and thrive.
Pastoral care: I place a strong emphasis on pastoral care. With comprehensive training in Mental Health, I use teaching of emotional regulation strategies to help unlock every child’s potential. I have run nurture groups to help children manage anxiety and change, and also have extensive experience of easing the transition between primary and secondary.
Non-native speakers: Half of my teaching career has been as a teacher of classes with 80% or higher ‘English as an Additional Language’ learners. As a result, I have a huge bank of teaching tactics to accelerate language acquisition, with engaging visual aids and multisensory methods for each stage.
