Meet Rachel

Hey, I’m Rachel!

I am an enthusiastic, positive and fun Maths teacher, with fifteen years teaching experience.  I have been a class teacher in every year group in Key Stage Two (years three to six) as well as tutoring children from years 2 to 6. I am also trained to teach Maths at Key Stage Three.

I am very knowledgeable of neurodiversity and the huge challenges that some children face in the mainstream environment. My inclusive nature means I bring great warmth, patience and acceptance when I am working with children. I can work with your child, taking the lead from them, so that they feel relaxed in their learning. One of my children is autistic, so I am able to show great insight into the needs of autistic young people and how best to work with them.

My absolute delight when children learn and understand a new concept shows that I will bring enthusiasm, hard work and fun to my lessons. Most of all, I just really love Maths and this comes across through my positive approach. I believe I would bring fun and flexibility to my tutoring sessions. I can help children to develop  their growth mindset and self-belief to help them to fulfil their potential.

And some other important questions… 

  • What’s your background? I studied an MA in Mathematics Education at Kings College, London. My Maths Specialist Qualification helped to deepen this knowledge further. My extensive Numbers Count training gave me the expertise to create individualised programs for children. I have been able to move children forward 21 months in their number age and ultimately help them to get on track to meet their age related expectations. 
  • What’s in your fridge? Lots of fruit, yoghurt and some spaghetti bolognaise!
  • What are your hobbies?  I love sea swimming, walks and spending time with my family. I also play piano and guitar!
  • What is a fun fact about you? When I am not tutoring, you will find me with a tennis racket in my hand as I absolutely love being on court!
