How would you describe your teaching style?

I have always been passionate about child development and want to help children of all abilities progress and succeed during their formative years. Personalised learning is key across the curriculum and it is of utmost importance to deliver engaging, stimulating, and creative sessions with a holistic approach wherever possible. I make work purposeful, build positive relationships with children, and act upon their interests by incorporating them into lessons. I strongly believe building positive relationships with individual pupils matter; children need to feel able to make mistakes without feeling judged in order for them to progress in their learning. I have learned never to assume what children already know. Each child has their own individual needs; therefore, I aim to create sessions that accommodate all pupils. My evaluations at the end of each lesson have also helped me plan for future lessons. Therefore, reflection provides an opportunity to record and consider how I could adapt my teaching methods as appropriately identified within my lessons.

What qualifications do you have?

I have an undergraduate degree ( 2:1) in Sociology from the University of Kent. I also have a PGCE in Primary Education from Canterbury Christchurch University.

Tell us about your experience...

I have worked in multiple schools in various year groups as the class teacher. This experience involved: planning, organising, setting up, and coordinating whole class lessons to stimulate individual pupil progress. My time as a primary school teacher taught me the importance of using baseline assessments to help each child with their individual needs. Every child should be given a bespoke chance to improve and develop based on their own circumstances, ability, and character. I found baseline assessments highlight where improvements and resources need to be focused going forward. I endeavour to create lessons to accommodate pupils of all abilities while being mindful of their capabilities. 123 Learn with Me! Is my new tutoring business. Tutoring provides a valuable opportunity to make pupil assumptions explicit, uncover any misconceptions they may have, and address them individually. Giving praise and specific advice on what pupils can do to improve is essential to building their confidence in their abilities. During each lesson, I continually evaluate the children’s learning throughout to check on their progression. At times this has involved changing my plan in the lesson to ensure the children are able to suit the children’s needs. Overseeing individual progress has confirmed that this is my chosen career path.
