About Miss Richards
Miss Richards has a passion for seeing children and adults reach their educational potential and loves to see them having fun on the way.
Qualified Primary Teacher
Miss Richards has always enjoyed learning, being one of those pupils that struggled to choose which subjects to drop at GCSE and A Level. After studying academic subjects (including Maths) in Further Education, she continued to study History and Languages at one of the UK's top ten ranking universities while working part-time at a primary school. After studying for a PCGE, Miss Richards went into full-time teaching. She has first-hand experience in teaching all of the year groups in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Miss Richards really enjoys teaching small groups and individuals, and so she is now working in schools and homes around the borough to share her enthusiasm for high-quality learning experiences. She is enjoying broadening her skills by tutoring KS3, KS4 and adult students.
Recently, Miss Richards qualified to teach English as a second language after studying a CELTA course. Her certificate grade puts her in the top 30% of successful candidates for this course worldwide.
Ever a lover of learning, Miss Richards has completed a creative writing course, a history for leisure course, a New Testament Greek course and a diploma in Child Psychology in recent years. In 2017, she attended a four-day course about listening and counselling skills. Her hopes for future study include a return to French and German studies. In her spare time she enjoys anything creative and walking in the countryside.
