I am a qualified and experienced primary teacher with over twenty years' experience most recently in Year 3 and Year 5 at a local school in Peterborough. I have previously a subject leader in English and experienced working with a wide variety of Special Educational Needs. I am confident with teaching all subjects within the Primary National Curriculum across all stages, EYFS, KS 1 and KS 2. In March 2020 I decided to leave full time teaching and become a tutor. At the moment, I am working with a range of children across the primary age group , also I am working with children who are being home-schooled for a variety of reasons. I am finding being a tutor very rewarding as I can adjust the curriculum to suit the different needs of the children and I have been able to watch them gain confidence and flourish with their learning.
