I am a fully qualified primary teacher. I undertook my PGCE with Teach First back in 2015. Since then, alongside my teaching, I have tutored children both in and out of school for a range of purposes - such as SATS, 11+ and independent schools entrance examinations. I have taught the full breadth of years from Yr1 through to Yr6, but the majority of my experience has been in KS2. Before teaching, I was awarded a BA (hons) classical civilisation degree from the University of Warwick. I am currently a curriculum leader at my school, and am also currently the art and music curriculum leader – I have always had a love of the arts. Previously I was also the history, geography and RE curriculum leader.
My classes have always included a high percentage of children with additional needs; I pride myself in always taking the time and effort, whether for my school class or my tutees, to make my lessons meet the needs of each individual child. I have very high expectations for my students, but I also firmly believe that learning should be fun!
In my spare time I love to be active; you’ll find me out running, at a yoga class or up a climbing wall. I am also very creative and love brushing up on my art skills at home, before sharing them in the classroom. I am also passionate about languages, and am currently learning Spanish.
