I am Head of English in a large primary school. I have a wealth of experience across Key Stage 2 and as a current Y6 teacher, I specialise in Key Stage 2 SATs. Knowing what is needed to be a success by the end of Year 6 is invaluable and transferring this knowledge is something I am passionate about.
Working as a teacher is something I love doing. Seeing and helping children to progress academically and as young people is a joy everyday.
I am a keen sports person that enjoys keeping active! I also enjoy spending time with my Yorkshire terrier, Boo (I didn't name him before you ask!)
I am currently a Year 4 teacher, having taught/tutored from Year 1 through to Year 6. I have been teaching in schools for eight years and tutoring children across a range of age groups and subjects for over ten years. I have also supported students with their 11+ exam for local grammar/independent schools. I am the Head of English in a large primary school which is graded 'outstanding' by Ofsted. I also have a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Management.
I absolutely love what I do as I feel that it makes a real difference to children's lives and futures. I love seeing children grow in confidence and believe in themselves. I like to build a positive relationship with each child so that they enjoy their sessions and feel comfortable. I plan each session to tailor it to every child's needs with the aim that they will reach their full potential and gain confidence.
I have house bunnies who keep me on my toes as well as four wonderful Romanian and Spanish rescue dogs. I also play ice hockey for the Nottingham Knights in my spare time.
I have been teaching in Key Stage 2 in schools since 2013 and have over 7 years experience tutoring across the primary age range.
I am the maths coordinator in my school and particularly enjoy teaching and tutoring this subject. It is immensely fulfilling to see children's confidence grow once they grasp a strategy or concept and I love helping children overcome their difficulties with this subject. I also love teaching writing, where I help children to develop their vocabulary, writing technique and writing style.
Outside of work, I am learning to play the piano and I love spending time with my two cockerpoos, Rocky and Bella.
I have been working as a Primary School Teacher for the past five years, both in the UK and Spain. I believe that a personalised approach to learning is key to inspire your child to succeed. I have experience in teaching children from Key Stage 1 to GCSE level in English, Maths & Science.
I have a love of maths and enjoy helping young people to achieve their potential. I always make sure that my lessons are related to the interests of the children I teach, to ensure that they are motivated to learn. I have been a class teacher in both Year 2 and 6 and thus have a detailed understanding of SATS and 11+ requirements.
I am a fitness fanatic; I enjoy running and playing tennis with my son. I love spending time with my young daughter too frequently visiting the park and library throughout the week
I am a Primary School Teacher with 8 years teaching experience and I currently teach in Year Five. I have had a total of 7 years teaching experience across Years 3 and 4; therefore, my expertise lies across Key Stage Two. However, I am happy to work with children in Key Stage One, as I have a secure understanding of the Key Stage One curriculum.
I have experience working with children who have English as an additional language, Special Educational Needs and challenging behaviours. My teaching experience includes 4 years teaching in Peterborough where many of the children I taught had English as an additional language and I have been teaching in Nottingham for the past 4 years.
Teaching has always been my passion; I strive to ensure children have a real love for their learning and I am able to differentiate appropriately to suit the needs of the children I teach.
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring new places, going for walks, cooking, listening to music and spending time with friends.
I graduated from The University of Sheffield with a degree in Accountancy & Management in 2012. It only took a year in industry to realise this profession wasn’t for me, so after working as an Au Pair in Paris and travelling Australasia for another year, I took on a PGCE in 2015 (7-11 specialism).
I worked at a school in KS2, before branching out to experience lots of different schools and year groups on supply. This flexibility means I can make tutoring a priority. My background in finance has come in handy for quick Maths, plus coaching tactical thinking processes in chess clubs. Experience of tutoring Primary Maths and English, KS3 Maths and Science and 11+ preparation.
Asides from teaching I love pilates, swimming and re-reading Harry Potter, but I am happiest walking my friend's dog, Boris, a pointer who has the biggest personality.
I’ve always wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember and being a teacher for the last 3 years has been nothing less than amazing! I am currently a Year 5/6 teacher and have taught mainly in KS2 however I have previously tutored from Years 2-6 and so I am secure with the curriculum for those ages.
Teaching has not only given me the ability to impart knowledge, but also the opportunity to learn new things every single day! I love the fact that no two children are the same; it encourages the importance of ensuring learning and teaching are tailored to suit all children. I love to help children grow their mindset, confidence and resilience to facilitate them to overcome challenges both inside and outside of the classroom.
Outside of teaching, I love going for runs with my dog, (although he can’t manage long runs with his little legs so they normally turn into long walks) reading and trying out new recipes to cook for friends and family.
I recently gained my PGCE from the University of Nottingham and am currently supply teaching across various schools. Teaching in different schools and age ranges provides me with an in-depth knowledge of the National Curriculum requirements of all subjects at all primary age levels, whilst I am able to adapt on a daily basis.
I cater for different learning styles through a mixed learning approach as I use various methods to help all learners – this includes the use of visual resources and learning through a hands-on approach. My lessons include varied activities, promoting creativity, and I ensure that high expectations are set and pupils’ learning is stretched accordingly to achieve these expectations.
In my spare time, I regularly run long distances, participating in 10 km and half marathon races. I am also a keen reader and enjoy cooking and baking for family and friends.
I have been working in Primary Schools for the past 15 years... starting as a volunteer, then an LSA, a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and finally a teacher. I have taught from Years 1 – 6 inclusive and have a sound knowledge of the SATS process. My approach is very child centred and personalised. I look at celebrating the positives first and then gradually working through the harder bits, all at the child's pace, with a view to plugging any gaps so the child can celebrate success in their learning. I teach in many different ways according to preferred learning style and believe it is important to give the child a meaningful context to their learning by relating objectives to everyday life.
I have seen rapid progress with students that I tutor on a 1-1 basis, achieved through determination, commitment, hard work, imagination and humour!
Aside from teaching I do voluntary work, sing in a community choir, act as a ‘host’ for dogs, enjoy walking and generally being outdoors.
I have been teaching Year 3 for the past year. Before that, I worked as an LSA in an Autistic provision for three years. I am extremely passionate about teaching and learning! I used to teach English to Brazilian and Portuguese individuals.
I love working in schools and with children! I could not imagine a more rewarding career - I love seeing how pupils develop academically and as a person. To know I have had an input in their development is extremely rewarding.
Outside of work, I am learning sign language and have two pets - a bearded dragon named Buckbeak and a collie shepherd named Stark.
I am a passionate and friendly German and French tutor and tailor my lessons to my students' needs. I started teaching languages in 2010 and over the last 10+ years, I have taught students from the ages of 8-70 online, in secondary schools, in colleges and privately.
I have helped thousands of students to improve their confidence, develop a love of languages and improve their grades. My specialisms in German are: KS2, KS3, GCSE, A-Level and Pre-University level. I also specialise in German for adult conversation My specialisms in French are: KS2, KS3 and GCSE. I also specialise in teaching adult French conversation for beginners.
Outside of teaching, I spend my time travelling, watching films, boxing and playing the piano.
I am currently a Year 3 teacher with a specialism in Physical Education. I graduated from Brighton University in 2019, and will be starting my second year of teaching in Year 3 in a primary school in Bilborough. I have experience teaching in Year 1, Year 3 and Year 5.
I am particularly passionate about Maths and I aim to teach it in a creative yet simplistic way that makes it accessible for all. I also enjoy teaching children to read and helping them to develop a love of reading. This further helps children to improve their comprehension and fluency skills.
Hobbies of mine include dancing, swimming, cycling and going out with my friends and family! I am also the proud owner of two cats, Olly and Finn!
I am an experienced teacher and have been teaching across Key Stages 1-4 for 27 years. I have worked as a secondary drama teacher and as a primary class teacher and dance and drama co-ordinator in London Schools. I have a proven track record of helping students reach their academic potential with gentle support and encouragement to build confidence and challenge their expectations of what they are able to achieve.
For the last five years I have been working as a home tutor for the Hospital Learning Centre in Nottingham. I plan my lessons ensuring that they constitute a progression of skills, knowledge and ability, as well as promoting an awareness in the student of their own creative potential by using games to support learning (especially at the primary level).
Hobbies of mine include walking (especially in the Peak District), painting landscape art, jewellery making, singing and studying world history via myths and legends.
I am a qualified primary school teacher with 6 years of experience; mainly teaching in the Early Years and KS1. I have worked with all ages within a primary school as a music teacher and have experience in SEN schools and KS2 as a cover teacher. During my time as a primary school teacher I ran a KS1 singalong club, a KS2 keyboard club and a whole school Gospel Music day.
I have a strong interest in Music Therapy. From September 2020 I will be starting a part time Master's degree in Music Therapy alongside tutoring and supply teaching.
My hobbies include playing the keyboard and piano; going to the gym and spending time with family and friends. I have experience of playing the keyboard/piano at concerts, weddings, christenings; to accompany gospel choirs and singers. I also accompany singers regularly at my local church.
Being a teacher is something I always wanted to do growing up. This is because at school you always remember the ones who inspired you and of course the role models.
I am currently supply teaching across Nottingham and, to tell you the truth, I find it amazing! I get a chance to build experiences and have a go at many different things! I feel that this year on supply has taught me so much in preparation for my NQT year.
On a personal front, I am sport mad! I love playing football, cricket and really any sport that’s available and I am a huge Nottingham Forest fan (think of that what you will). I also enjoy trips to my favourite seaside town, Whitby.
I know from personal experiences that labels mean nothing! This is because I am dyslexic, which to many may be a barrier, but I feel if I can overcome it and get my dream job, anybody can!
I have been teaching for 27 years. I am currently a supply teacher – teaching mainly in primary schools.My permanent, full time teaching roles have included many years in primary schools, mainly Year 3 to Year 6, and nine years in secondary school, where I taught as a learning support teacher and as an English teacher.
I have held various manage roles such as History and Geography Co-ordinator; I.T. Co-ordinator and EMAG Co-ordinator. I have a wide experience of working with children of all ages and abilities; including children with special educational needs and children who have English as an additional language.
I love teaching and sharing the learning experience of the children I am working with. I appreciate that learning is an experience that is unique to each individual and to each session. I am adaptable and flexible and use a wide range of techniques and approaches to stimulate and encourage good progress.
I am quite adventurous and love cycling; taking long country walks; going on random drives; and organising and taking part in trips and residentials with my church youth group.
I have recently qualified as a teacher, after 4 years of studying at Nottingham Trent University. Within this I specialised in ages 5-11, with a wide range of experience across both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Having worked in an Early Years class, I have seen the progression that learners can experience across their primary experience.
I am a friendly and supportive person who can support a child in their learning, by making lessons fun as well as informative.
I have worked in a variety of different contexts, meaning I have a broad range of experience. This includes working at an American children's summer camp, teaching horse riding!
In my spare time I love taking care of plants and clay-based activities. I also have a horse that I ride called Laddie!
