Teaching/Tutoring Experience
I have been a primary school teacher since 1986, living and working in Warwickshire, Cheshire and Berkshire . I have been a supply teacher and private tutor for the last 3 years. I have also worked for Reading University as a lecturer in Child Development and Learning. I have worked individually with many KS2 children to increase their confidence and basic skills. I have also worked with KS3 handwriting and spelling, and with KS1 developing early writing and numeracy skills.

About Me
Professional BiographyFollowing my degree in Fine Art with Art History, I decided to teach primary aged children, covering all subjects in the curriculum. I have worked in some large schools, but specialised in smaller schools where greater working relationships between staff and pupils can be developed. I lectured in child development and learning for a year, but missed the interaction with children, so then returned to the classroom but diversified with tutoring and supply work.
