With my BSc in Geography and before gaining my QTS in Primary Education on a Graduate Teacher programme in 2003, I worked with children with physical and learning difficulties. This was in a residential and day school in Kent, and I found it very rewarding. I had known from an early age that I wanted a career in Primary Education.
I have been teaching for 17 years in a mix of EYFS and Years 1 – 6 classes. The two things that remain constant in my career are my love of teaching and the importance of health, nutrition and fitness. Buddha said, “To keep the body in good health is a duty otherwise we shall not be able to keep the mind strong and clear.” This perfectly sums up what I believe most about teaching and the importance of keeping children fit and healthy so as to become great learners.
I’m excited by the new challenges I face. I love teaching in school, online and one to one. I thrive on figuring out a child’s strengths and weaknesses, modifying my teaching style to suit them, and then seeing them inspired. I look forward to doing so with your child! As your child’s Tutor I’m here to support you and answer any questions you may have.
Following a move to Penzance in West Cornwall, I am in a county surrounded by beautiful beaches and views of St. Michaels Mount. I enjoy spending time as a mum with my three-year-old boy who loves being outdoors, and spending time walking with my friends along the coastline.
I enjoy playing tennis, cycling, baking gluten free bread and cakes and gardening.
