The national curriculum is one big memory test. That's great for people with good memories but is it real learning? How much of what you learned at school can you remember today?
Learn. Laugh. Love Literacy.
Looking for a passionate and experienced tutor to build your child’s confidence and enjoyment of creative writing, spelling and grammar?
I can’t wait to have a chat with you about it!
Has your child fallen behind since the school closures?
Many parents are noticing that their children are struggling with handwriting, spelling, and comprehension after lockdown.
The good news is that your child's confidence can be rebuilt with time, patience and the right support.
Is your child finding it difficult to understand literacy?
It's amazing how well learning flourishes once children are placed at the heart of the lesson.
I believe that the most enjoyable, effective and meaningful lessons succeed when children can really feel that they are included.
Is your child tuning-out and often missing key information?
I plan every lesson around each child's individual interests and add exciting games, quizzes and songs to help with engagement.
My bespoke tutoring creates a fun and creative space where children can learn, laugh and love literacy.
I love helping a child to create the most imaginative and breath-taking fiction. Having to pick up my jaw from the floor is a delightful consequence!
That was definitely my favourite part of working in primary schools as a 1:1 teaching assistant too.
I have a passion for the English language, taking it as far as my degree in English Literature and Education (BA Hons).
I also avoid boring 'one-size fits all' teaching and create fun, personalised learning where every child benefits.
