Member since 2020 Miss Victoria H

I am a highly experienced primary school teacher and Senco with over 20 years experience. I have worked with children of all ages from Year 1 to Year 6, including delivering interventions and personalised programmes for children with barriers to learning. I offer SATS preparation or booster work in all curriculum areas for children who find the pace of whole class teaching a little too much for them. I can also offer online lessons via Skype and Google Classroom.
