"The activities are engaging, fun and educational. The children have such a great time, they don't even realise they're learning! Thanks so much"
Creating bright little buttons with an individual approach.
Not all buttons are the same size or colour, and not all children learn in the same way or at the same rate.
Working for myself, I am not tied down to following only one scheme and using only one approach. I get to know your child as an individual and tailor my teaching for their learning needs.
I am an experienced teacher available for tutoring of pre-school, EYFS and Key Stage One children, in Hatfield Peverel, Little Baddow, Danbury, Boreham, Witham, Maldon and surrounding areas.
All tutoring has currently been POSTPONED due to the government's guidelines relating to Covid 19
