Mrs Laura L

My experience of being a class teacher and being a home educator and having close relationships with other home ed families gives me an invaluable insight into the needs of both types of families – and the increasing number of flexi schoolers we are seeing as education in the UK evolves. In addition to my PGCE and MEd (Equality and Diversity specialism), I have recently gained my TESOL/ TEFL certification which means I can support children and families with additional EAL/ ESL needs. Through teaching and tutoring, I developed a keen ability to use Assessment for Learning (AfL) techniques to pinpoint where my mixed class’s understanding or where a new 1:1 student sat in their learning journey, and to do it quickly. I have a huge array of resources that I can reach for to support my students. I have tutored mainstream educated and home educated students and have experience of running ’11+ Club’ as a Year 6 teacher and of tutoring 1:1 11+ support.

Miss Clare M

I am a Primary qualified teacher, with experience teaching across all age groups (EYFS, Key Stage 1 & 2) in both UK and International schools. In addition, I have experience tutoring all ages (4-16 years) in the core subjects (Maths, English and Science) online and in-person. Having trained in UK Ofsted Outstanding schools, I am committed to quality teaching and learning. I believe in leaving no child behind, and aim for all students to be confident readers, writers and speakers. Experience in a range of Phonic programs ensures that I am able to deliver on this. I have a keen interest in how young people learn Mathematics. Utilising a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach, I teach for mastery of the subject.
