Meet your tutor, Katy
“A teacher plants the seeds of knowledge, sprinkles them with love and patiently nurtures their growth to produce tomorrow’s mighty minds!”
Hi, I’m Katy and I am delighted to be working with Mighty Minds Tutoring. The opportunity to have high quality online learning support for our children is essential, especially during these uncertain times for us all. I am passionate in delivering a nurtured approach to teaching children, encouraging them to develop a growth mind set and be the best version of themselves. I believe that every child can reach the highest levels of their potential when high quality teaching and support is provided!
Throughout my career I have extended my own learning by becoming a fully accredited nurture teacher. I have shown commitment to engaging in literature, research and policy in completion of my enquiry. I have embedded my passion for a nurturing classroom, into my teaching practice and ensure that the children I teach feel safe, nurtured and also have the opportunity for challenge and of course lots of fun!
I have recently been promoted as a Principal Teacher in Scotland, enabling me to create targeted intervention groups for both Literacy and Numeracy. Additionally, I have been the lead teacher in elevating teaching and learning within the school and developed strategies to ensure appropriate differentiation, pace and challenge.
I have been a mentor for student teachers for the last 2 years, this has provided me with the ability to enhance my observation skills, questioning techniques, progress my ability to be objective and give skilled and constructive feedback. All of which, are essential in the role of a tutor.
Finally, one of my key strengths is developing relationships with parents and carers and I am fully aware that they are entrusting me to teach, develop and support their children with their learning needs at the forefront. I converse regularly with parents about the progress of their child’s learning, sharing with them their strengths, areas for development, and most importantly building confident and successful learners.
