My experience to date means that I am able to employ a repertoire of teaching methodologies to meet my learners’ needs. Having taught both Prep and Senior English for ten years, I am especially confident about supporting pupils through key transition points and supporting them with examination preparation. With foundations rooted in Benjamin Bloom’s taxonomy of learning, I am confident in supporting learners through the stages of understanding through to analysis and synthesis and beyond. My lessons follow a clear structure and are meticulously planned with built in progress-checks and dedicated time for consolidation of previously learned skills and content. I am able to adapt activities and lessons quickly and seamlessly to meet pupils’ specific needs, helping them to grow in confidence lesson by lesson. I find that using directed improvement and reflection time along with redrafting over time to be an especially powerful tool in teaching and learning.
Having read English at the University of Birmingham, I began tutoring in 2008 and have taught at both state and independent schools in the UK & internationally since 2010. I hold both a GTP and a PGCE teaching qualification at distinction level and I am currently working towards an MSc in Psychology with a view to retraining as an Educational Psychologist. My experiences as a Housemistress and Head of Year have carefully honed my communication skills and I pride myself on being clear and approachable as a tutor.
