I am a Teacher, Pedagogy & Learning Support Specialist, and a qualified Nanny, Maternity Nanny, and Governess. I have a truly holistic approach to learning and curricula, with international experience in education, safeguarding, and pastoral care. My professional expertise ranges from providing nurturing, developmentally appropriate care and play-based learning opportunities for the very youngest infants and their families through to more formal teaching of school-aged students, including those at Diploma level and beyond. Unusually, I am equally comfortable in both home and school settings, with a unique ability to observe the needs and potential of individuals and to truly combine “education with care” in order to bring out their best.
Alongside my achievements as a Leader in Learning Support and Inclusion in a prestigious IB school, I have a track record of success as a private Education Consultant. In this capacity, I work with professionals, client families and schools to advise, review, develop or deliver bespoke educational services for students with diverse learning profiles or circumstances, including those who may be exceptionally strong academically. I also regularly tutor ESL students or / adult professionals looking for individualised programs for English language training or seeking exam or university preparation, either at home or in the workplace.
Whether face-to-face or teaching online, students, parents, and colleagues comment on my passion for academic and emotional excellence in education and my commitment to working holistically and ethically with students and families. I value building a caring and confident learning community through collaborating with and supporting colleagues and families, as well as my students, through the inevitable changes and challenges that life and learning demand of us. This relationship-based approach has enabled me to lead, inspire and advocate effectively both within and beyond schools for ALL learners to achieve to their full potential, be they children, adolescents, or adults.
