A bit about me...
I am a Primary School Teacher currently at Bathford CE Primary School, near the beautiful city of Bath. I offer tuition to students in my local area which I love. I offer support in Primary KS 1&2 and Secondary KS 3 ENGLISH, MATHS and SATs preparation. I also teach Piano Lessons & Music Theory, Grades 1-5 from Age 7 to Adult. It's never too late to learn something new! I am very passionate about helping children or adults with particular learning difficulties and perhaps those with emotional needs. Therefore, I am currently studying a Diploma is Child Psychology and offer a Personal, Social and Health development course primarily taught through creative craft activities.
I hold a Bachelor of Education degree in Primary Education, specialising in English. I have been teaching in a variety of primary schools, both in the UK and Internationally (Asia) for the past 12 years. Over the years I have offered private tuition to support pupils in need alongside my regular teaching jobs. I enjoy both classroom and private one to one, small group teaching and have taught over 500 children. My favourite subjects are Art & Music. I have recently become a new mum and thoroughly enjoy learning every day with my son. Motherhood is simply amazing!
I grew up on Dartmoor and loved running about in the fields, climbing Tors and collecting stones in rivers. I once caught a trout when fishing which my father sold in his pub as dish of the day! I attended Torquay Girls Grammar School, completing English, Art and Geography A levels. At the same time I completed grades in music for singing, piano, flute and clarinet. I also loved Drama club, cookery and textiles classes. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, so I completed my BEd at Plymouth University. In my spare time now as an adult, I enjoy painting and making jewellery or crafts for fun and I often publish my art here online. I have always loved travelling and was fortunate to see many places during my childhood.
Once I had taught in the UK for a few years, I decided to embark on my own travels and teach abroad at the same time. I worked in a British International School in Penang, Malaysia for 3 years. I met an extraordinary group of people from all areas of the globe. I had a fantastic time. Whilst out there I visited many other places. My favourites were Thailand, Vietnam, Japan and Cambodia.
Key skills and responsibilities I have had during my career on top of classroom teaching so far have been; Literacy & Assessment Co-ordinator, IPC International Primary Curriculum Developer, Thinking Skills Trainer, Art Leader, PSHE Personal Social and Health Education leader, pastoral care and I've lead staff training and parent workshops in Reading, Writing, Maths and Art.
I adore my job which is why I dedicate myself to supporting students at home, outside of school hours. Sometimes, we just need a little bit more help and practice.
All the lessons I provide are tailored to your specific learning needs. I offer an initial assessment introduction lesson for every new student. During this lesson, we build a personal development plan for future lessons. If after this first lesson, you wish to continue, I then sell each student a block of lessons worth 10 hours of tuition, which is paid in full at the end of the first hour. This advanced payment secures your future booking slots and the commitment to continue. During all lessons, feedback is provided to ensure confidence and knowledge of how my students can achieve their goals. At the end of each block of lessons I will complete an assessment review in verbal and written form to highlight successful progress and next steps. At this point, a new block of 10 hours can be purchased if you would like to continue. Please note, the 10 hour block must be completed within 12 weeks of the purchase date. This is to ensure continuity of learning progress. Best results are seen when a student has 1 to 2 hours a week.
I understand that at times due to unforeseen circumstances, lessons may need to be cancelled/rearranged. I operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. If a student fails to cancel a booking 48 hours prior to our arranged date, they will still be charged at the full rate for the lesson missed. I also will make sure that should I need to cancel and rearrange, I will provide at least 48 hours notice if not more.
Lessons are offered as one to one or small groups (for KS1&2), maximum 4 children. For group lessons, I offer discounted rates to support families. Some parents find it financially easier to create a small group of students so each child can enjoy their extra support with their friends and at a cheaper rate (piano lessons one to one only). Please contact me for more information on group rates.
I offer lessons in my own home at a cheaper rate of £24 an hour. I have suitable space, resources and equipment. For piano lessons, I own and play on the new Yamaha Clavinova CLP 545 which is a fantastic electric piano. It plays and sounds like a Grand Piano with superb features providing a huge variety of sounds, recording and listening playback options.
If you would like to begin tuition with me, I very much look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
