Hey, I’m Amandine!
I’m the Chief Learning Champion, tutoring children from Year 1 to Year 9 in Maths, English and lots of other subjects. I also look after the other tutors and make sure they’re supported.
I love working with children and developing positive relationships with students of all levels and abilities. It is really important to me to empower all my students to enjoy their learning. I believe firmly in the importance of helping my students to develop a growth mindset and embrace mistakes as an essential part of learning. I plan creative and engaging activities that allow for active learning, praise effort and also encourage students to develop their critical thinking skills.
I have five years of experience as a KS2 classroom teacher (including Y6 SATs preparation) where I enjoyed teaching across a rich and broad curriculum. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in Arts Funding and Policy in different roles at Arts Council England.
And some other important questions…
- What’s your background? I have a degree in History of Art from the University of Warwick followed by an MA in History of Art at the University of East Anglia and a PGCE from the University of Exeter.
- What’s in your fridge? Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Grapes are my favourite!
- What are your hobbies? Painting, I am doing lots of watercolours at the moment. I love to read and go to the cinema. I also enjoy cooking and eating out with friends, Italian food is my favourite!
- What is a fun fact about you? I am half French and lived in Venice for a short time while studying for my degree in History of Art.
