Mrs Matilda N

I am a qualified and experienced primary teacher with over 6 years of experience as a primary school teacher, mainly in Key Stage Two. Also, I have worked a total of 5 years as a tutor with Key Stage One to Key Stage Three, preparing children for SATS, the 7+ and 11+ exams. I am proud of my ability to engage children with learning and aim to make my lessons active and encouraging. When tutoring it is crucial to first establish a strong and positive working relationship and celebrating each step of progress a child makes. I have experience with children with a variety of educational needs. I am experienced at stretching the attainment of higher ability children, securing the progress of children struggling academically. I adapt each of my tutoring sessions according to the needs of each student, slowly building their confidence through scaffolding, encouragement, challenges and ultimately fostering independence so they can be their best. I enjoy tutoring because it is rewarding, every child is different and that makes teaching refreshing.
