Home Education

I offer a range of one-to-one, small group and larger group learning experiences, for children who are home educated, as well as workshops offering guidance and teaching strategies for parents who facilitate learning at home. I worked as a reading leader in a primary school where I trained teachers and staff to teach reading and writing using the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc phonics programme. I also had the pleasure of learning from Pie Corbet who is one of my literacy heroes. With growth mindset at the heart of my teaching philosophy, I encourage children to discover things by themselves or collaboratively and value effort, persistence and learning from mistakes.

We have a venue from which to teach groups of children however we can accommodate teaching from your home or an alternative venue.
