Primary and Secondary Education Tutor
Hello, my name is Lucy and I am joining the SAT team as a fully qualified teacher of almost ten years experience teaching and tutoring.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Primary Education with QTS, which I studied at Northumbria University in Newcastle. I am Yorkshire born and bred who is currently living in my hometown of Halifax.
I worked as a full time Primary School teacher covering all subjects in the curriculum for 5 years and worked as a private tutor alongside my teaching for 4 years.
I currently home tutor children of all ages from Primary through to Secondary who cannot attend full time school due to medical or social, emotional and mental health needs. I have experience teaching children with additional needs and those on the autistic spectrum.
My favourite subject to teach is maths, which I can teach from Early years all the way up to GCSE. I am also confident and experienced teaching English from Early Years up to Year 6. I have experience of teaching both KS1 and KS2 sats and have also taught Functional skills maths and English.
I am young and fun and my teaching style is very much hands on and interactive. My experience teaching younger children has given me valuable skills in breaking down tricky maths concepts and I like to use bar modelling and maths apparatus to build a solid foundation for maths and providing the building blocks to success. I am very patient and understanding and have the passion to see my students succeed

My daughter, B, has SEN and had struggled with maths anxiety (due to negative experiences at school) to the point where she couldn’t access mainstream maths lessons for approx 12 months. She believed she was useless at maths 😞
It was crucial that we found the right teacher for her.
Sammie was very understanding, reassuring and knew that her teacher Lucy, would be a good match for B.
She was right!! Lucy is an amazing teacher!! She paced the lessons just right, allowing B to take some control over what she wanted to learn each week. She was very patient and gentle in her approach. My daughters confidence has grown with each lesson, she’s even started to enjoy maths!!
B has just completed her GCSE maths exams. She opted to do the higher paper which just shows how much her confidence has grown and afterwards said that it went well and she enjoyed it🙂
The feedback I was provided with after each lesson was excellent and Lucy’s input into B’s EHCP annual review was fantastic.
We are so grateful that we found Sammie and Lucy eight months ago. If you’re hesitating ...please don’t because my only regret is that we didn’t find them both sooner😊
