Based in Worcester, Worcestershire (West Midlands), happy to travel up to 15 miles and willing to tutor online.
I am a qualified teacher who has over eight years of experience in the primary school setting. I have taught across all year groups and I have been head of mathematics. I thrive on working with people to empower them to achieve their potential. As well as tutoring, I currently teach in a school in the mornings.
I am a positive person, who has always generated a great relationship with my pupils, their parents and my colleagues. I am a fun, motivated and hardworking individual, which has been demonstrated by me obtaining a masters in education, becoming head of mathematics and through my achievements in my leisure time. As a passionate, positive and driven person, I believe in the importance of inspiration, engagement and encouragement to empower pupils to realise and exceed their potential. I have always had a passion to ensure that people achieve their potential. As a former personal trainer I believe I have the motivational skills to get the best out of people in any context.
I came in to teaching because of my determination to make a difference, to act as an inspiration and to play a crucial role in driving the ambitions of children. I strongly believe that one of the most important aspects of teaching is to have high expectations of all pupils, encouraging them to succeed and to believe in their potential, irrespective of their current ability or personal circumstances.
My teaching experience has been very varied and well balanced across all year groups in primary school and I have tutored pupils from key stage 3.
My main hobbies are sport and art. I relish the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone which has resulted in me competing in martial arts tournaments. I love to challenge myself and I enjoy raising money for charity. I have raised money for various charities, doing various things from obstacle races to having my legs waxed! Art is a great passion of mine as I have painted since I was very young. I often undertake art projects ranging from graphic design to commission art work.
