About Me

Soon after completing my PGCE, I was selected as an Advanced Skills Teacher for my skills in teaching children with different abilities.  Nominated and selected as a Specialist Leader in Education by the National College,  I am widely experienced with pupils from diverse backgrounds and different academic abilities and hold a track record of achieving outstanding results.

I have lead Maths and English  across various schools ; pupils have achieved accelerated progress. I have taught Maths using different Schemes such as ‘Maths Makes Sense’ and White Rose Maths’ .

I am confident with Pearson, AQA and Edexcel boards and have helped children achieve Levels  8 and 9 in their GCSE. I have taught texts in Literature such as ‘A Christmas Carol, Jekyll and Hyde, Plays of Shakespeare , An Inspector Calls ,Animal Farm besides other texts and know how to prepare students for exemplary answers in Language Paper 1 and 2. Besides this I have taught GCSE Maths Foundation and Higher Tier  with excellent results.

I have tutored students taking their SATS at the end of Year 6 with outstanding success in both English and Maths.

I have  also taught phonics using RML scheme of Learning and helped teachers deliver outstanding phonics lessons too!

I have prepared children for not only 11+ but also Independent school entrance exams for both primary and Secondary with a high success rate.

I have an  extensive understanding of the curriculum across different  Year Groups and  adapt my lessons to the various learning styles of pupils, including those with special needs. I have a thorough grounding in the curriculum requirements and have a systematic approach to delivering targeted teaching.

I have an excellent record of students achieving their targets and adapt my teaching methods to best suit the learning style and needs of children. I believe that all children can achieve their full potential given the correct scaffolding and ‘Have a Go’ attitude. I like to instil self esteem in children through encouragement and effective feedback throughout the session.

I have  taught children in Care homes who may have Learning difficulties and severe Emotional and Behavioural difficulties.

My Unique Teaching style

I use Assessment for Learning to set SMART Targets-Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and trackable targets. I enable pupils to consolidate their strengths, resolve misconceptions and use and apply the skills learned for problem Solving and Reasoning .I prepare personalised resources depending on the requirement of the child.

I am able to guide parents if their child would benefit from 1-1 or group tutoring as each has its distinctive advantage. Some children learn better by having peer to peer interaction. I tailor make programs like Booster groups ,with targeted teaching in specific topics, to  deal with specific areas of learning which then results in accelerated progress.

I  can offer different packages depending on the needs of the child. I am able to work together with parent guiding them  about resources and techniques which would help their child  achieve their targets. I ensure that  success is measurable and the impact  of tutoring is visible through feedback from their performance at school.

I believe in giving homework linked to what has been taught in the session to reinforce the learning and provide an opportunity for independent learning also.
