I am an experienced professional with a ten year career in finance, contract law and insurance fraud. I am now qualifying as an English teacher in a girls’ grammar school. I have an absolute passion for teaching; everyone should be able to excel. Every student should be able to learn in their own way and at their own pace. I can successfully engage students and scaffold their learning whilst challenging their thinking. I am patient, fair, pragmatic and flexible. I am able to adjust quickly and think on my feet. If a student is struggling then I can successfully aid their learning with a new approach. I create a safe and supportive learning environment where students are encouraged to try their best, even if they lack confidence. I adopt praise and use it to help my students succeed. I encourage critical thinking, self reflection and personal accountability. I foster my teaching style with my one year old son who already loves reading!
