Having trained as a teacher in my 20s, I then took a long career break while my children were growing up, preferring to work from home. For 13 years I had a small printing business, went on to work at a large magazine printer's for several years but, although this was absorbing, I always wanted to return to teaching.
14 years ago I did an intensive Return to Teaching course, run by the University of Bath, and have been teaching, working as a Teaching Assistant or tutoring ever since. I have been through 3 very successful Ofsted inspections.
From long-term supply teaching English in a Special School, I developed an interest in helping children who have learning difficulties such as Dyslexia. For 5 years I was Head of English in a Prep School in Dorset, which also involved taking several pupils on a 1 to 1 basis each week for help with their Dyslexia. Apart from this, I also very much enjoyed working at a higher level with pupils preparing for their 13+ Common Entrance and Scholarship Examinations. For the past 5 years I have tutored pupils in preparation for GCSE English Language and Literature for several Examination Boards, with much success. References can be made available.
Although I am 'retirement age', I am too young to retire and would miss working with children immensely; they are such fun and do enjoy achieving. Building self-esteem is often the starting point; I break the lessons down into lively and stimulating 'chunks', making sure that the pupil has a real sense of pride in his or her work at the end.
I am happy to travel or welcome a pupil plus parent/carer into my home, as long as they don't mind 3 very friendly dogs.
