I am an energetic and inspiring teacher who will instil a passion for knowledge in every pupil, allowing them to unlock their true potential and achieve even the most aspirational of goals. I am a qualified, experienced and highly skilled primary school teacher with exceptional subject and pedagogical knowledge. As a class teacher, a tutor and a Deputy Headteacher, I have a proven track record for getting results: the pupils I have taught and tutored have all performed far beyond expectations in their end of Key Stage Two examinations, GCSEs and 11+ exams. I have tutored three pupils to perform so exceptionally well in their entrance exams as to be awarded full scholarships to private education. I also have a particular passion for teaching science and have excelled in the role of science coordinator. I am enthusiastic, relentlessly optimistic and driven; I work very hard to ensure that all knowledge can be understood in an engaging and interesting way. Consequently, I can guarantee results.
