I am an experienced teacher with Qualified Teachers Status awarded at an overall outstanding against the teachers’ standards. I have been working in the education sector for eight years; in teaching as well as supporting roles. I have experience teaching reception, year 2 and year 4 classes. I also have experience mentoring within a secondary school, with year 9 students. I value building a positive relationship with my students, as I feel this allows me to know how to adapt my teaching and learning to engage my learners. This has enabled my students to learn and develop the necessary skills needed to progress.
Within my lessons, I use powerpoints, exam questions, games, quizzes, worksheets, videos and animations. However, I also ensure various materials are available for my students. Sessions can be planned to focus on the area that the student would benefit from developing (e.g. grammar, comprehension). Alternatively, sessions can incorporate a range of areas within the English subject.
