Primary ICT/Computing Advisor

Personal Statement

I am a professional, committed and qualified teacher who hopes to use the experience I have gained through my 10 years in education by developing my tutoring skills in both 1:1 sessions and small groups. I am qualified to teach Key Stage 2 children and although my day job involves focusing on the teaching of ICT/Computing, much of that teaching, as well as my tutoring experience, is through other subjects such as Literacy and Mathematics.  I would also be confident teaching Mathematics at KS3+ as that would complement my Degree-level studies.
