BEd (Hons) with QTS in English Literature with Education
Following my graduation from Cambridge University where I specialised in English Literature with Education, I went on to teach a wide range of subjects in various primary schools, both in the state and independent sector. I have also been Head of Year in a number of different year groups.
As the end of my maternity leave was timed somewhat imperfectly with the start of the pandemic, I found myself in an interesting situation! Never one to shy away from a challenge, I used this as an opportunity to set up Online Primary Tuition. Since then, I have helped children to obtain academic scholarships and secure places in a number of top independent and grammar schools across Hertfordshire and London, namely UCS, Haberdashers’ Schools, Haileybury, King’s College School, St Albans and Dame Alice Owens to name but a few. I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher with vast experience of the 7+, 8+ and 11+ entry requirements. I also tutor children who may just need a little confidence boost or simply to fill in gaps in their learning.
At Online Primary Tuition, our lessons can be taught on a one-to-one basis, in pairs or with small groups of children (no more than 6 in a group). Extra services such as marking past papers, intensive revision courses and mock interviews are also offered.
At Online Primary Tuition, our lessons are based online only and my Enhanced DBS certificate is registered on the Update Service. I am also trained in Safeguarding and take every opportunity to keep my skills up to date. I will work closely with you to focus on your child’s specific targets. This will in turn ensure that they excel academically and develop a fearless attitude towards learning. By tailoring our lessons to students’ individual needs and focusing on positive language, I have been able to build great relationships with my students over the years, which has in turn led to amazing results.
Every week, an online lesson plan for your child will be created, using a range of resources and websites. We can either focus on one subject like Maths or English. Alternatively, we can combine two subjects in half hour blocks.
Your child will be assessed to find out what they know and what they need to work on. We will regularly review this and lessons will be adapted accordingly. Terms and conditions will need to be agreed before tuition can commence. These will be emailed to you to be signed.
Learning technology has come a long way. By incorporating it into our sessions, this will in turn make lessons more fun and engaging. We will use a variety of websites to consolidate learning during our lessons and suggestions for apps and websites will be made to use at home. An example of an online learning platform is Atom Learning. Click the link to find out more and receive a discount.
We will stay in close consultation so that you feel your child is being supported and that they are gaining confidence in their learning.
