Teaching Experience

I am a fully qualified school teacher with over seven years of experience in diverse educational settings, including primary schools, SEN schools and other educational environments. 

I worked at a school in London full time between 2017 and 2020, as a Year 5 teacher and Humanities Coordinator. While there, I developed and launched REAL projects; an inquiry and project-based curriculum and have experience teaching a range of subjects from English and Maths to PE and French. After 2020, I worked there part-time running the NTP (National Tutoring Programme), teaching Year 5 and working as a PPA cover. More recently, I worked as Maternity Cover in Year 2. 

I have also worked as an online educator, teaching children and adults English, through an EdTech platform called Enguru, as well as helping them in their curriculum development.

Prior to my teaching qualification, alongside my teaching placements, I worked as a SEN (Special Education Needs) teaching assistant in mainstream and specialist nurseries, primary and secondary schools as well as colleges.

During my gap year, I was a teaching assistant at the British School, New Delhi and worked at a hospital and NGO teaching children in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. During school, I volunteered as a teacher for several NGOs and government schools in India. 

Throughout my teaching experience, I have worked as a private educator to students in India and the UK, teaching primarily Maths and Science.

Biography

I was born in London and raised between India and the UK. Growing up in two different countries and completing the International Baccalaureate at an international school instilled in me the values of holistic education, a growth mindset, and a global perspective. My journey into education began early as I experienced two distinct education systems and began volunteering in schools and NGOs in India at the age of 13. These experiences ignited a lifelong passion for education and children, ultimately leading me to embark on a transformative gap year. During this year, I dedicated my time to working in children’s hospitals and schools across India and Tanzania.

I then went on to pursue my undergraduate degree in Primary Education, where I had a diverse range of school placements across the North of England. Throughout this period, I developed a deep interest in child and educational psychology. Following my degree, I gained valuable experience working in an inner-city London school across Key Stage 2. More recently, I completed an MSc in the Psychology of Education at the Institute of Education, UCL, blending my passions in educational and child psychology. 

I am enthusiastic, creative and passionate and believe in developing strong relationships with pupils and their families in order to create a positive, safe and productive learning environment. Beyond my professional life, I love travelling and spend a lot of time exploring new cultures, places, food and languages. I love music and dance and play the piano, sing and dance ballet, jazz and an Indian classical dance called Odissi.
