Claire Smith, Academic Tutor

Claire is a qualified primary school teacher with seven years of teaching experience under her belt. Claire undertook an Early Childhood Studies In Chichester which gave her a great foundation for understanding how children develop and learn. She then went on to complete a PGCE at the University of Brighton. During her career in schools she has taught from Reception up to Year 6 and also was the SENCo for 3 years alongside her classroom duties.

Claire took a career break when her eldest daughter was born and now that her children are 6 and 3 she has found that tutoring is the perfect way to get back into teaching whilst still being flexible around her young children.

Tutoring offers me the opportunity to teach 1:1 which is such a pleasure. Classrooms can be busy, noisy environments for some children and 1:1 tutoring enables me to give the children the focused time and teaching that they deserve.

Claire also runs a Children, Family and Newborn photography business, Little Acorns Photography, alongside her teaching. Photography has always been a passion for Claire since a young age and this business allows her to mix both her passion for children and photography together.
