Member since 2020 Mrs Tracy G

Qualified Primary Teacher with 20 years+ in the classroom. Taught all year groups across Key Stages 1 and 2, from whole class to 1:1, including SEN children with a variety of needs. I believe all children can achieve in a supportive environment so I make it a priority to get to know the child and how they will best learn. I prepare personalised, creative lessons and resources and with patience and support, they build self confidence in their own ability. I enjoy working with the EYFS and KS1 skills of phonics and literacy and offer support preparation for both KS1 and 2 SATs. I have a great deal of experience of all subjects across EYFS, KS1 and 2, both in NC and IBO PYP. All of this can be offered through online learning with Homeschooling support, too.
