BA (Hons) ENG, PGCE
'Love to Learn' is about exactly that! My mission is to make learning something that is enjoyable; something that is a pleasurable experience. Learning should not be a chore or a hassle, not something that is endured or suffered through, but something that is a fun and positive part of a child's daily routine.
Each day we are all learning, every single one of us, whether we are actively involved in the process or not! It takes energy, concentration and motivation to become better at something, to embed skills or to master something completely new.
Having completed my degree in English at Swansea University, and then moving to London to work as a trainee Script Editor for a TV company based at Pinewood Studios, I decided to return to education and undertook a PGCE in Secondary Education specialising in English at Exeter University in 2004 - 2005.
My first teaching post was in 2005 at Queen Elizabeth's School in Wimborne Minster. During the following 13 years of my career in education, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of secondary and middle schools across the South Coast, including Lytchett Minster School, Meoncross School, Redbridge Community School and most recently at Allenbourn Middle School.
Having taught children aged 9-18 in a classroom environment, and from aged 7 as a tutor, I have seen first-hand the very real frustrations experienced by pupils when they don't quite "get" it. Sometimes all it takes is a bit of time focusing on one particular skill or topic with a specialist teacher without the distractions of a busy classroom.
My passion for enabling learning means that for me, working as a private English tutor, is a dream come true. I can offer each child my undivided time and energy to help break down any learning barriers, to ensure that they have no reason to feel trapped or confused, and to provide all the necessary tools required to thrive & achieve whatever they desire.
As a mum of two young children myself, I understand how important it is as a parent to ensure that our kids are happy. Only then do I believe that they will be able to reach their full potential. By allowing me to work with your little treasures, you are choosing to help them on their learning journey.
