About Rachael

I have recently moved to Washington State from London, UK. I completed a postgraduate teaching certificate in London and qualified in 2009. I have 6 years experience of working in a variety of primary schools (3-11 years) and spent 5 years working in one school across the elementary age range. While I was there I tutored 2 pupils privately in English to improve their grades. Currently I am in the process of transferring my qualifications here so that I can complete my Washington teacher's certificate. I love teaching and enjoy watching children learn new concepts and ideas. I enjoy learning from my students and using their interests to find a way to teach them. Over the years I have worked with many pupils and their is nothing better than watching their confidence in their own ability grow.

Having taught in the UK I am familiar with the importance of meeting standards and developing lessons and plans so that students can meet them. I am able to research common core standards required and develop age appropriate activities and give support using previous experience from the UK.

As a primary teacher in the UK I taught reading, writing, math, handwriting, science, etc. and have experience planning and carrying out fun activities around each subject.

During my time in London I was phonics co-ordinator in my school responsible for phonics teaching across 2 year groups. In UK children have to complete a phonics test to demonstrate reading ability and I worked hard to improve the school's performance over 2 years and was recognized for this.

I love to make learning fun and tailoring it to specific the specific needs of the pupil. Engaging students in learning is the best way to improve confidence and ability!!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a British qualified teacher. I have taught for 5 years in the UK school system, teaching children aged 3-11 years in a variety of subjects. I have privately tutored 2 children (7 and 5) in reading and writing. Currently I have am taking my exams and transferring my UK qualification to become certified as a teacher in Washington State.

I taught maths in a British primary school for 6 years to children aged 3-12 across all areas. I hold my qualified teacher status in England having passed a my teaching degree and maths and English exams. I also have recently passed my west b exam on mathematical concepts in the process of transferring my teacher certificate to Washington state.

English

I have spent 6 years teaching in the British school system specializing in teaching children aged 4-7. I taught English every day through writing, reading, phonics and speaking. I am confident in questioning children about what they have read and helping them choose appropriate books. I taught varied lessons on writing covering aspects of grammar, punctuation, handwriting and elements of different genres.

Phonics

I am a British qualified teacher. I have taught for 5 years in the UK school system, teaching children aged 3-11 years in a variety of subjects. I specialized in Phonics taking an interest in how to teach children to read. I am an outstanding phonics teacher in the British system and have had great results in teaching children phonics so they can read and write.

Reading

I have taught children 3-11 in the U.K. where I specialized in phonics and teaching children the basics in reading. I became a leader in my school for phonics and developed fun lessons that guaranteed most children participated and achieved. Alongside that I also taught reading daily to my class developing their decoding and comprehension skills.
