I am a qualified, experienced primary school teacher and private tutor. For the last 2 years I have been working as a year 6 teacher and before then I taught a mixed year 5/6 class and a mixed year 3/4 class. My tutoring would really benefit children who are currently in year 5 and just need a bit of a confidence boost before moving up into year 6. I have plenty of practise test papers and resources to work through with them. However, I also have experience tutoring younger children, even as young as 4!
I believe that teachers are in such a privileged position, to have the potential to instil a life-long love of learning into children. In my opinion, the best teachers are not those who just get the required results from those they teach, but those who strive to encourage children to want to learn and to become excited about their own achievements. I have high expectations of the children I teach and am good at encouraging them to reach their full potential.
