I gained my First-Class BA Honours Degree in Teaching and Learning from Edgehill University in Liverpool, whilst working full-time at an inner-city primary school. I have worked with children for over 20 years and have developed my teaching style by having to think on my feet and adapt to suit the setting and the student. The past eight years as a private tutor have enabled me to do things my way and achieve great things for the kids I have tutored. The opportunity to work so closely with struggling students and the need to quickly bring others up-to-speed for exams has put me in a unique situation, which I have fully embraced. I am proud to have played a part in boosting the confidence of my students; some of whom have gained scholarships to fee-paying schools and accessed English grammar schools. Many students stay with me for up to five years. The Pandemic meant that the 23 private students I taught each week, almost halved. Those remaining continued learning, very successfully on Zoom. I am now able to put all my experience and focus into developing my own teaching resources which sell all over the world. It makes me very happy when I get feedback for my reading resources telling me that they are helping struggling and dyslexic students to learn to read. Knowing that I can now reach struggling students far away from me is a wonderful feeling indeed. My latest project is writing gripping fiction stories for struggling readers.
Whatever it takes.
Very, very proud of my First Class Honours Degree as I left school with 2 O'levels and absolutely no understanding of maths WHATSOEVER; which I believe puts me in a great place to understand kids who struggle with maths.
