Clare's biography:

Clare studied at Royal Holloway University completing a BA Hons in French. After teaching English in Japan for a year, she returned to the UK to complete her PGCE at the Institute of Education. She passed with 'Outstanding'. Over the last ten years, she has now taught in state, international and private schools. Over the last 18 months, she taught at Charterhouse Square School across all key stages. She particularly enjoys teaching English and maths and helping students with their confidence, so that they can become self-assured and resilient learners.

Clare uses an online interactive whiteboard for lessons, similar to the interactive board found in the school classroom. This allows for Clare and the student to actively interact throughout the tutorial and address misconceptions in real-time.

Clare and I worked together at Clapham Manor Primary School from September 2013 - July 2014 as Year 5 Class Teachers. Watching Clare teach, it would seem impossible that she was an NQT. Many children and parents in her class said that they had never had such a successful year in terms of growing in confidence, finding new levels of self-esteem, improved behaviour, increased independence and, therefore, making better academic progress than they had ever done before. This is due to both Clare’s unique personality and her outstanding teaching skills. Clare is energetic, creative, stands no nonsense and always reflects on how she can improve her practice in order to move every child forward and enable them to fulfil their potential. Realising this within a class of 30 children, ranging from low level 2 to level 6 is no mean feat and she achieved it with seeming ease. First and foremost, she cares hugely for the pupils and builds trusting relationships with them and their parents. These strong relationships come about because Clare always goes the extra mile. ‘Hard to reach’ and disengaged children and parents changed their attitudes and became positive members of the school community. As a result of Clare’s approach to teaching, the children in her class want to learn. All the pupils made good or outstanding progress; from those with severe special needs to those who are extremely bright and gifted and talented. This is because she plans for their individual needs, differentiates work and challenges the children appropriately in an engaging and creative way. Clare tutored a child in her class on a one to one basis and the absolutely outstanding progress she made that year is testament to Clare’s tutoring skills. It has been a real pleasure and a privilege to work with Clare. I would consider this to have been a highly successful year’s teaching and this is due to working in a team with such an excellent planning partner. I learned a huge amount from her and any family, child, children, class who are lucky enough to have her as their tutor / teacher in the future will certainly also hold this view.
