Children are only able to learn when they are comfortable, happy and have a willingness to succeed. My job for over 10 years has been to instil that sense of security and drive in all of my students. I do this by having high expectations of both myself and the children; providing excellent knowledge of the curriculum and exam requirements and having a good sense of fun. Everyone has a different learning style and interest base and I am able to change my teaching pedagogy to suit the best learning needs of the student.
I have a very varied interest base myself. As a practising teacher within a school, I am up-to-date with the latest teaching methods and curriculum (for example Mastery in Maths and Literacy) as well as my specialist subject knowledge of the Science curriculum as the Science Co-ordinator. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, motorbiking, walking my dog and Martial Arts – there’s never a dull moment! I mix friendliness, approachability and professionalism to get the best out of the students in my care and inspire a life-long love of learning.
