I'm a highly experienced, fully qualified school teacher based in Birmingham, UK, with a full (enhanced) DRB Certificate. Originally from north Birmingham, I've been a resident of South Birmingham for 17 years where I've made my home with my family, working in the local community as a school teacher and tutor. My work has also included the role of school governor, working for 3 years on the creation and introduction of measures to support School Improvement Plans.
In 2007, I was part of a team researching the role of Visual Literacy in national schools and I was invited to present the findings of 2 years of research at Birmingham City University. This research led to direct implementation of Visual Literacy concepts into the English curriculum in schools nationwide. These ideas have since been extended into every area of the National Curriculum. I have been an active teacher and English Subject Lead through the National Literacy Strategy, Primary National Strategy and all current government drives and requirements for the teaching of English. In addition, I have extensive knowledge of the Mathematics curriculum, having taught through the National Numeracy Strategy, Primary National Strategy and through the curriculum reforms and most recent spotlight on maths mastery.
My previous career in the NHS as a qualified Anatomical Pathology Technician, building on university level Biomedical Sciences work, was the precursor to roles as Head of Science in teaching. These leadership roles involved the implementation of more interactive knowledge and enquiry-based Science curricula that provided students with memorable links and helpful ways of thinking through scientific problems and ideas.
My Qualifications (directly related to teaching/tutoring):
-* First Class degree (with Honours) in Primary Education with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) - English Specialism
* Post Graduate Diploma in Education.
* 20 years of teaching experience, from 3-11 years - nearly 10 years working with Year 6s focusing on SATs teaching and preparation.
* TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certified for international and online work.
* Grammar School educated (Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls) with full knowledge of the testing requirements for Grammar School entry in Birmingham at 11+
* Royal Institute of Public Health and Hygiene (RIPHH, now Royal Society for Public Health) - Qualified Anatomical Pathology Technician
* Cert HE Biomedical Sciences
** I aim to be providing IELTS test preparation, Business English and Conversational English lessons for non-native speakers of all ages from Spring 2023.
