Emma Bartle - BA (Hons) with QTS
Passionate, creative and caring teaching, promoting a love of learning!

I believe that nurturing a love of learning is key to enabling success and meaningful progress. Children who love to learn are confident, resilient and joyful in approaching challenges. As educators we need to be our children’s biggest advocates. It is our duty to provide students with the skills and tools needed to succeed and meet next steps, so that they can feel confident in their own abilities. Achievement and progress is unique to every child, as every learning journey is different. Great teachers are there every step of the way, providing the strategies needed to overcome challenges and new concepts, but they must also be there to celebrate even the smallest success. My favourite part of teaching is when my students learn to believe in themselves and fall in love with learning. When they are not discouraged by mistakes because they know they can overcome them, with a teacher who supports and believes in them. That is when the magic happens and they exceed their own expectations. That is why I became a teacher.

Tutoring experience

~ Has worked as a class teacher for over 6 years in local primary schools.
~ Worked as a year group leader in a local school for 2 years.
~ Was the founding teacher for a new Nursery in a local school.
~ Have been tutoring children from 4-13 years of age for the past 3+ years.
~ Specialisms in English and Early Years.
~ Fully Qualified, insured and CRB checked.

I have detailed insight into the EYFS and National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2. As a Year Group Leader, I adapted and developed new teaching and learning initiatives (such as the Learning to Learn initiative) which are still used in school today. I enjoy exploring educational theories and often explore how they can further improve teaching and learning. As class teacher, I introduced assessment and evaluation procedures linked closely to the Leuven Scales of Involvement to ensure consistent provision across year groups. Having worked closely with specialists, I have established support systems for children with additional learning needs. In 2016 I started working as a private tutor and was inspired by the personalised learning experience this one-to-one approach to teaching enables! I have also helped students prepare for 7+, 10+ and 11+ exams in local schools.

Approach to tutoring

As a teacher, I firmly believe that education should be fun and link directly to real-life contexts. By nurturing confidence and providing appropriate challenge through carefully planned activities, children learn at greater depth. Enjoyment is key to motivation, along with meaningful next steps formulated from accurate assessments. I also believe that positive working relationships are key to enabling success. As such, I always aim to work closely with parents, providing support, advice and feedback.

I have specialisms in English and Early Years and am able to offer exciting and child-led Early Years (4-5 years) provision as well as bespoke sessions for Key Stage one and Two children (6-12 years). I offer tuition in English and Maths but also cover verbal and non-verbal reasoning (if required for 11+ exams). Early Years students also benefit from focus in the Prime Areas of Learning. Sessions run for an hour and all activities are planned from assessments alongside the curriculum. At the end of every session, parents/carers are given brief feedback with guidance for any homework set.
