My name is Kara Cook and I am a qualified teacher, online tutor and the successful business owner of Just 2 Imagine Tutors. I am an enthusiastic primary specialist offering online tutoring in English and maths for children ages 7-11. Is your child struggling with literacy or maths? Let's put an end to their frustration! I can help by building your child's confidence, closing their learning gaps and changing their mindset to 'Yes I can!'
How would you describe your teaching style?
I would describe my teaching style as facilitator and motivator. I use a variety of fun games and activities to help children to learn new learning and consolidate their taught skills. My lonline tutoring lessons are personalised and tailored specifically to a child's individual needs. At the heart of my teaching philosophy is the firm belief that all children can learn in a calm encouraging environment. I believe online learning should be fun and exciting allowing children to overcome their obstacles and build their confidence. I also believe in the power of not yet and the importance of a Growth Mindset. I teach my students strategies for learning from mistakes, how to be brave enough to ask questions and how to think critically so they can tackle problems and new learning. This is all part of building independent, confident learners and helping them reach their highest potential.
