Becky

Hammersmith and Online Tutor

I have experience of teaching in many educational environments in the UK and abroad. I have worked as a primary teacher, home-school teacher, as well as a TEFL teacher. Moreover, I have taught creative writing, poetry and journalism in international schools and state schools in Hong Kong with English speakers and EAL learners.

I have a passion for the English Language, its grammar, rich vocabulary and many written forms. I seek to pass this enthusiasm on to my students in a manner that suits their personality and learning style. As a teacher, I aim to assess a child’s needs carefully and then adapt my teaching style and materials. I work to make lessons fun, engaging and challenging to the just-right level.

As a parent with two daughters now at university, I understand the joys and the pressures of the role. Also, I understand what it is like to raise children in the UK and abroad and have some understanding of the US education system and the PYP. Furthermore, as a writer and student of writing, I have an awareness of the process and how it can be both exhilarating and frustrating and how to develop confidence and resilience.

I teach in person and online.
