Gecko Tutoring: I am a qualified primary school teacher available for tutoring. I have taught in various schools in various age ranges. I can teach any ages between 4-11, in any subject. I offer a free initial phone/video call consultation to discuss the student's needs and availability. Costs start at £10 and go up to £20. This cost also includes homework if desired. Sessions can be remotely given or in person with social distancing. I also offer ongoing incentives for students and parents.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Flexible and creative. I like to draw inspiration from the student- their likes and interested. I like to try different ways of working and try to find fun ways of learning.

What qualifications do you have?

I am a qualified and experienced Primary School Teacher.

Tell us about your experience...

I graduated from the University of Kent in 2009 and went straight to Bath Spa University to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate of Education. From September 2010, I worked in Key Stage 2 at a large village junior school. During my years at this school, I moved from an NQT to an experienced teacher with leadership responsibilities. This included being a subject co-ordinator, a year group leader and a mentor to trainee teachers. From 2017, I worked in a small village school in a mixed aged class that crossed from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2. From 2019, I spent time in a higher education setting. I took on two roles during this time: one requiring me to teach, another requiring me to support lessons and provide pastoral care. From 2020, alongside starting this tutoring business, I am working as a TA in Key Stage 2 at a large primary school. Throughout my career so far, I have received positive feedback from students, colleagues, management and parents. Feedback showing me to be supportive, caring, organised, a good communicator, reflective, organised and hardworking.

What locations do you tutor in?

I am based in Blunsdon but can travel to Swindon and surrounding areas. Otherwise, online.

What is your personal message to students?

I will listen to you- I want to know about your needs and interests and feed this in to every session.
