Progress, Achieve and Succeed! I am a qualified primary teacher with fifteen years of classroom experience. I am also a skilled one-to-one private tutor. Having tutored children across the primary age-range, I understand the academic progression from one year group to the next and the demands of the National Curriculum. Having worked with Year Two pupils to prepare them for the SATS exams, I am able to help children in Key Stage One to achieve a good level by the end of this age phase. I have taught in a number of independent preparatory schools in London and Berkshire. Schools such as these often aim to help children to excel in Maths and English and to prepare them for exams. I have worked with individuals and small groups to prepare them for the 7 Plus, 8 Plus and 11 Plus exams and my track record shows excellent results. I am able to tailor my tutoring schemes of work for each individual student. First I establish a good relationship with the child and ask them what they feel are their strengths and weaknesses. I will undertake initial assessment tasks in order to determine their levels of achievement and to identify areas for development. I will share learning targets and the plan for future lessons with the parents. Children are engaged in my sessions and make very good progress as I use positive praise and encouragement in order for them to feel confident about what they can achieve. If coaching for particular exams, I include exam practice papers so that children can become familiar with the different types of questions and how to approach them. I have very positive feedback from past clients and my pupils have got on to be successful and happy in their schooling.
