Emily began teaching online as a way to expand upon her teaching experience, but now that she has left the ‘physical’ classroom; teaching online has become not only a way to develop her experience but to also fit teaching in around her other pursuits and home life. Emily loves being able to personalise her teaching to suit the individual needs of the children that she works with. This allows her to hold their interest through tailoring their learning to hold their intrigue and passions.
When asked about the challenges of online learning, Emily says that she doesn’t believe that it is a difficult concept for children to get to grips with. “With our recent experiences in home and distance learning; it is a fact of life that children have had to make the move to this medium of teaching. With the tools that we have; our sessions are interactive and engaging to suit their needs and requirements.” Creativity is something that Emily believes makes the lessons come to life. She has enjoyed talking with students in other countries, in different time zones and with different attitudes to their learning – things she finds fascinating!
Emily loves being outdoors and is a Forest School leader as well. She enjoys many different crafts, such as lino printing and felting. What makes Emily happy? A sunny day outside, with her family and their dog Fred!
