### What do I enjoy most about tutoring? 😁

I have a real passion for teaching, especially maths. I enjoy getting to know pupils individually and adjusting learning to suit their needs. Tutoring allows for 1:1 learning, opening up opportunities for in-depth educational conversations and the chance to explore different problems together.

### My Strengths as Tutor 💪

I have been primary class teacher for 3 years and have experience in 3 internationally curriculums (Scottish, British and Australian). I use a variety of support resources and differentiating methods to support pupil’s understanding. I build good relationships with children and have an approachable manner, encouraging lots of questioning and problem solving.

### Most important things I can do for a student 🏅

Identify a pupil’s weakness and explore various strategies to scaffold the child’s learning. Additionally, having patience for children to be inquisitive and work through their problems. Building a child’s confidence and positivity towards learning is a top priority of mine as an educator.
