I am currently the Head of Year 6 in a large primary school in Bristol. I am also a Lead Practitioner for Bristol Training Schools as well as a writing moderator for the Local Authority. This means that I have a great deal of experience of the KS2 requirements.
For the past 4 years I have been guiding children through SATS and helping them be the best they can be. During my time in Year 6, my classes have exceeded school expectations and shown great progress. I have also spent time in other year groups throughout Key Stage 2.
My teaching style is one that is friendly, collegiate and based on building relationships to further develop understanding through questioning and discussion. As well as this, I am very focused on spotting gaps in children's understanding and have a strong skills base to draw upon to help them.
Before being a teacher, I spent 8 years working as a recruiter into financial service and accountancy firms in both London and Edinburgh so feel that I have strong interpersonal skills.
David has a really easy way with kids and keeps my daughter interested for the full hour. Early days as only two sessions but I have the impression he knows exactly what she needs to work on. Very impressed and happy with David.
