I was a primary school teacher for 16 years. During this time I taught children aged 7-11 years but in the past ten years I taught solely in Year 6, where the focus was on preparing them for the end of Key Stage 2 tests in Maths, English and Science. The children in my classes always made ‘outstanding’ progress as measured by the school’s assessment procedures and the Key Stage 2 test results always exceeded national pass rates.
I have extensive experience in teaching children of different ages and abilities. My job is to set high expectations and guide each child to their maximum potential. I have seen that most children learn best and are more able to achieve this potential when they feel confident and engaged, which is why I adopt an enthusiastic, friendly approach and provide fast paced and interesting lessons. My aim to encourage a positive attitude to learning and self-challenge, resulting in rewarding learning experiences and ultimately to success.
