I am an experienced teacher and youth worker who is passionate about engaging children in learning by making it relevant, interesting and enjoyable. I have over 20 years experience of working with hard to reach, anxious and disengaged learners, those with special educational needs, as well as teaching a variety of age groups and abilities in mainstream primary. At KS3/4, I have experience of teaching key skills, pshe and citizenship. My belief is that by teaching effective learning skills, we equip people with the ability to access any subject. I particularly enjoy teaching children key skills via topics they are especially interested in, but also have extensive experience of helping students prepare for SATS, particularly in English, including reading, writing and SPAG. In addition to holding a TEFL certificate, I have actively taught children with English as an additional language for 10 years.
I have been a Designated Safeguarding Lead for 8 years.
I look forward to working with you!
Leanne is a kind and friendly tutor, able to put my son at ease from his first english lesson.
She creates a learning environment which engages the interests of the student, paramount for positive and effective learning.
Would recomend to anyone
