Hello I'm Sophia, a qualified teacher with 20 + years experience in primary education from Reception to Y6 in both England and Wales. I've worked as a Head of Prep in an independent school and also a classroom teacher in mainstream state education, so I bring a wealth of experience across all primary subjects including specialist in English, Maths and Art. I work with home-schooled pupils and help to create a programme of learning to suit their personal needs and circumstances. Also, I can offer tailored 1:1 tuition to support your child in catching up or preparing for examinations such as SATs, Welsh National Tests, entrance exams to independent schools and 11+. I value growth mindset, positive learning experiences and offer a supportive and caring approach. I offer tutoring online nationwide and further afield to international students and I also have some students who work with me 1:1 in Pembrokeshire from home.

How would you describe your teaching style?

My teaching style is fun, personalised and encouraging. I help pupils develop a deeper understanding of key concepts and ideas through delivering the curriculum in a variety of ways to suit their learning styles; for example, some pupils learn best through images and visualisation and hands-on learning, others more abstract and some through auditory methods or a mix of all three. I encourage a growth mindset to enable students to challenge themselves with positivity, a happy work ethic and commitment to success. We celebrate mistakes as that's where the real learning happens and the pace of all sessions is unique to each student to ensure they feel supported, enthusiastic and achieve their potential.
