My name is Vanessa and I have been in the education sector for 20 years, both behind the scenes and in the classroom. Most recently I have been a secondary science teacher but my roots were founded in primary education. I’ve also taught Maths to adults at evening school.
I have lived in Leicestershire most of my life but now I live in the South of France with my partner and our two dogs, where I will continue to inspire learners through on-line, student-centred lessons with Montessori Tutors.
I like to use objects from the everyday to bring lessons to life and believe in learning through discovery. I have lots of experience of practical teaching and believe that children learn best from the world around them and from each other. I use carefully chosen materials to navigate the National Curriculum and make learning maths and English fun!
I look forward to meeting new students and to sharing my passion for learning!
