Tell me about some of your current students.
My QTS students so far have ranged from 18 year olds to people in their twenties and thirties who have decided to change career. Skills and confidence varied greatly at the beginning but all have gone on to pass the test, benefiting from the strategies offered and building self-confidence through practice and support.
It has been a real pleasure getting to know them and ensuring they can take up their teaching courses.
GCSE students have included the whole range from those targeting A* to those with particular difficulties with English. The work is tailored to ensure students fulfil their individual potential.
Key Stage 2 students have been a joy to teach, gaining confidence through their progress.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am particularly interested in offering QTS tuition so that those who are keen to join the profession are not held back by the tests and get the chance to discover the joys and satisfaction of teaching and making a difference. My explanations are clear and accessible, providing strategies to achieve success. Work is tailored to the needs of the individual and my success rate is high, both at school and with private tutees. I have been graded 'outstanding ' by Ofsted.
I would be so glad to help you.
