Welcome to Spagbag which is a place where you can get help and ideas to improve spelling and grammar from a qualified teacher with over thirty years’ experience.
I am a teacher and tutor with over thirty years’ experience working in both the public and private sectors of education. During my career I have taught children from two years old right up to sixteen years and those with special needs. I am a mother of three and interested in all things green.
I am educated to degree level, having studied English Literature and Linguistics at UEA Norwich. I went on to gain my PGCE at Bishop Grosseteste College, Lincoln. My dissertation was based on encouraging children to write. My strengths lay in the Arts and throughout my career I have pursued many creative outlets such as making props and scenery for dramatic productions or running after school clubs in making jewellery and clay-work .I have been involved with workshops with children’s authors such as Gervaise Phinn and Michael Hardcastle.
At home, I run an allotment and enjoy growing my own fruit and vegetables and as a family , we try to recycle as much as possible. We are currently renovating our 1950s bungalow and landscaping the surrounding gardens.
Please contact me if you need any more information about tuition or my resources.
