I qualified as a primary school teacher in the summer of 2004 and since then have gained a wealth of experience within teaching and tutoring different age groups. I taught for many years within a school setting, covering every year group ranging from Early Years up to Year 6, whilst spending the majority of time teaching in years in years 1, 4 and 5.

Due to family commitments, I left my school employment in 2019 and soon after began to concentrate and specialise in teaching children with Special Educational Needs, whilst also keeping abreast with all current areas of the primary curriculum.

My keen interest in teaching children with Special Educational Needs, and in particular dyslexia, became more apparent when my own son began to struggle at school and started to show some dvslexic traits. All the challenges that my own son was dealing with were impacting significantly on his learning, but by implementing helpful strategies things did greatly improve. Going through these difficulties first hand, has given me the insight into the problems that so many children experience whilst trying to learn.

My ambition within teaching is to continue to help ease the anxiety surrounding the learning process for children, by providing encouragement and coping strategies to help guide every child to make progress and develop. I like to draw out each individual's abilities, to encourage them, raise their self-esteem and therefore their resilience. Increasing their confidence in this way, in turn helps them to achieve their highest potential.

Having a wide and varied teaching career enables me to inspire and motivate children from all backgrounds and whatever their learning difficulty might be.

I look forward to the potential opportunity of working with with you and your child in the near future.

I am an experienced In-Person and Online One-to-One English Literature Tutor in KS3 and KS4 with a true passion for both education and literature. I am committed to the promotion and improvement of children’s and young adults’ literacy skills. As such, I volunteer as an Online Intervention Tutor with disadvantaged and underachieving Inner City London students. I recognise the necessity of tutoring to coincide with the National Curriculum being taught within various educational settings to improve pupils’ literacy skills and to build confidence.

Further, I am particularly interested in Victorian Literature and attained the accolade of a Distinction in my MA in Literature and Culture, combining my love of Victorian Literature with Post-Colonial Studies in my final Dissertation. Subsequently, I am a member of the British Association for Victorian Studies. I love to share my subject knowledge with my students in the hope that my enthusiasm is contagious and they learn to love the subject as much as I do.

When not tutoring, studying or writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters aged 18 and 21. My eldest daughter has a lifelong disability. Therefore, I am particularly interested in educational inclusivity as I understand the problems faced by parents with children in mainstream education who do not conform to the “educational norms”. Also, helping my daughters with their studies whilst trying to maintain a level of calm during the examination period, keeps me extremely busy!

I am Enhanced DBS checked.
