Hannah has worked with children aiming to attend the following schools:
After graduating from St Andrews with a degree in International Relations, Hannah spent a year in Hong Kong on a graduate programme, teaching English lessons in a primary school to children aged between 5-11. Upon her return to the U.K. in 2010, she joined the Teach First Leadership Development Programme, where she was placed in a school in West London. From summer 2017, Hannah will become a full time tutor.
During her 8 years as a full time teacher, on top of her teaching responsibilities, Hannah took on a range of leadership responsibilities including Year Group Leader as well as subject responsibilities for MFL and Computing. She has also mentored a range of participants placed in her school through the Teach First programme. She has previous experience of tutoring KS2 children in creative writing.
When working with children, both in and out of the classroom, Hannah is passionate about developing relationships with each individual child she works with, getting to the heart of what engages them and then using this to inspire, motivate and personalise their learning experience. She enjoys presenting learning in real life contexts while also ensuring progress and progression towards the stated learning goals. She has high expectations of every child she works with and has built up a wide range of skills, knowledge and expertise about how children learn to support her in this.
When not teaching, Hannah is a keen runner, an avid reader and an enthusiastic cook! She helps run Sunday school at a local church and, whenever possible, also enjoys the chance to visit art galleries, museums and the theatre.
Hannah qualified to teach Primary education in 2011, and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from Cantebury Christchurch University College.

"I think Hannah was very helpful. She built a good relationship with my son and really helped embed some key concepts. The proof will be in the pudding if it was enough when we get the results! My only frustration was she didn’t have as much availability as I would have liked."

"I think Hannah is absolutely brilliant. She’s really stretching our daughter and has a wonderful calm manner with her. She’s also always extremely punctual and professional. If she has another slot come available I’d take it as we are fortnightly but she is full at the moment.

"Hannah is a great tutor. She has a really nice balance of being firm and working to achieve the objectives set, with a warm and accommodating manner that puts the child at ease. After school tutoring has been easy and fun, with significant strides made in concentration and focus alongside the academic progress."

As both a teacher and a tutor, Hannah has worked with many children who present as reluctant writers or who appear to not have many ideas to begin a story. "Talking Pictures" is a simple yet highly effective 4 step strategy to get your child’s creative juices flowing and to kick-start the story writing process.
