My name is Helen and I am an English Literature and Language tutor & a qualified teacher who has over 10 years teaching/tutoring experience. I am particularly interested in developing English oracy skills and enjoy teaching phonics and vocabulary at KS1 & KS2. Additionally, I have a strong understanding of all English grammar rules. I love enthusing students to learn, in a creative and fun setting. I positively use scaffolding, regalia and elaboration techniques whilst teaching. I am focused on finding professional education development opportunities to deliver high quality English lessons, which will enable children to catch up on missed education. I am particularly empathetic to students who have suffered during this pandemic.
