Biography - Kelly Child

Kelly Child

BA (Hons), PGCE

I have five years' experience, teaching in Primary schools. I really enjoy the spontaneity and fast pace of the school working environment.  Recently, I have tutored pupils who need extra support to progress or are preparing to take the 11+ tests. During my time as a teacher, I have discovered that children's self-esteem is closely connected to their academic success. If pupils believe in their own abilities, they have the confidence to try new, more challenging concepts. I find it very rewarding when pupils are visibly proud because they had mistakenly doubted their ability to succeed at a task.
