WHO WE ARE

Education today can be mine field for parents, I know as a parent and primary teacher myself methods of learning are constantly changing and it can be difficult to keep up! The strategies we were taught as children are almost non-existent and it can be difficult to support your child at home as you learn the new methods they are exploring in school.

The words that’s not how I did in school’ are what inspired me to set up Learning Mole, until I became a parent myself I didn’t quite realise how challenging homework, home schooling and generally supporting your children could actually be.

I have been teaching children from 4 -11 years old for the past 14 years in the UK, Dubai and Egypt – that’s over 2730 days teaching nearly 400 children and every day is different. I love teaching and I learn something new every day from my classes as well as from my own children. The way children think and approach learning situations is amazing and I hope that you will get to experience similar amazement while working with your own children. Always have high expectations and always be ready for your children to challenge your thinking 🙂
