Nicola Taylor

BSc (Hons), QTS

I am an enthusiastic, fully qualified primary school teacher, with over 15 years’ teaching experience. I am passionate about every child achieving their best. I qualified as a primary teacher in 2007 and have since worked in a variety of schools, across both the private and state sectors. I have taught children from ages 5 to 11 in all primary subjects and have an excellent working knowledge of the Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum. Additional roles have included: Literacy Lead, Art and Design Coordinator and Eco-Schools Coordinator.

For the last few years, I have really enjoyed tutoring children aged between 5 and 11 years in Maths and English on a 1:1 basis. As a tutor, I take time to get to know every child as an individual, working together to build confidence, independence and self-esteem. This personalised approach ensures they are equipped to make rapid progress. I feel one of my key strengths is to form strong relationships with families, in order to ensure every child achieves their full potential. I am committed to providing outstanding teaching and feedback, to enable all children to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.

In my spare time, I like to explore our local beaches, paint, meditate, read and swim. Painting and the seaside have always been my passions. From a young age, I was happiest with a paintbrush in my hand, or splashing about in the sea! I am now lucky enough to live by the coast and sell my large, vibrant paintings of the area in local galleries.

I look forward to sharing my love of teaching and learning with your family.
