Member since 2019 Mrs Lisa F

As an experienced class teacher and Deputy Head across the Primary Key Stages, I firmly believe that good quality teaching and assessment leads to progress for all children. I am a strong teacher with excellent behaviour management skills, and most of my teaching career has been working in a school with high deprivation factors, high levels of Pupil Premium and high numbers of children with EAL. I have led and managed several curriculum areas including all areas of Literacy, Computing and Assessment. I am a child protection officer and am team teach trained. I am highly organised and flexible, able to plan effective sequences of lessons, yet also be creative and “think on the spot” when needed. I am experienced in delivering all areas of the Primary Curriculum, English and Maths Functional Skills, and a range of other education related skills.

Member since 2019 Mr Luke D

Education professional with a background in Primary School teaching- eight years worth of experience working in Devon and Greater Manchester working across KS2 primarily- working as a classroom teacher, French specialist teacher, PPA teacher and Art specialist teacher. Moreover, I also supported groups of children with their 11+ examinations for entry to grammar school. I am a Fine Art, French and English Language specialist having both tutored these subjects to both children and adults. I have knowledge of the 11+ exams and have current active experience of tutoring English and Maths. I believe in a question led approach to tutoring where the student takes on an active role in their learning. Being a visual and kin-aesthetic ( learn by doing) learner myself, I believe that promoting subjects using a variety of methods is immersive and engaging. I am a firm believer that it doesn't matter how quickly or slowly a person makes progress as long as they are not encouraged to stop!
