Charlotte is an experienced and highly motivated teacher who believes that children learn best through exciting and engaging activities. Most recently, Charlotte was teaching at Harrow International School in Beijing where she taught a variety of age groups from Nursery to Year 5, both 1:1 and whole class teaching. Before taking her position at Harrow, she taught in several schools in East London having graduated from Roehampton University with a PGCE in 2008. She has an in-depth knowledge of the primary curriculum and her lessons incorporate a broad range of tasks, including visual, kinaesthetic and auditory activities to enrich the children’s learning experience.
Charlotte has experience of teaching children with SEN including autism, dyslexia and down syndrome and adapts her teaching to match the learning needs of her students. She is able to teach all areas of the curriculum with confidence, and has a particular interest in Maths and English, using carefully selected teaching techniques to get the best results out of her students.
Charlotte comes from a creative background, having gained a BA(Hons) in Textile Design (First Class) at university in Liverpool. Her dissertation was based on the links between dyslexia and creativity. She is able to use her creativity and imagination to develop lessons that target children’s specific needs, based on their interests and experience.
Having taught children with widely different backgrounds and abilities, Charlotte believes that responding to the particular needs of each child and building a good relationship is vital to them achieving their best. As a result, she consistently sees the children she teaches making substantial progress in their learning.
M’s time with Charlotte has now come to an end but I wanted to write and say how amazing she’s been. M had been apprehensive about tuition and was not particularly happy that it was going to mean giving up an hour of his Saturday. However, from the first lesson he had with Charlotte she made it fun and engaging and the hour just flew past. She quickly identified his areas of weakness and worked with him to increase his understanding as well as his confidence. She was incredibly patient with him on days when he was a bit tired and not so enthusiastic. It has been a great experience for him and we’ve genuinely enjoyed seeing Charlotte on a weekly basis because as well as being a fantastic tutor she is a lovely person too.
