Personal Description:

I have extensive experience in teaching reading and maths in the Foundation Phase and specialise both in helping children with reading or maths difficulties and extending capable children. I am semi-retired and tutor from home.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a class teacher within Foundation and Intermediate Phase and have established and run a school for early learning. I have developed reading and maths learning programmers for children aged four to eight.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching methods start with the student. Finding out where the student is directs the way forward. Young children love learning by doing, and I draw on resources I have built up and made over the years to engage students in activities and games that promote learning. Learning is a step by step process, and my methods involve moving the student forward at a pace suited to their individual learning style. For reading, giving students access to reading material that stimulates and delights, promotes motivation to learn, which I support through fostering the development of a full range of reading strategies, including phonics. I tutor school going children who need support or extension. I also work with home schooling parents and children, offering tuition and consulting services. I offer access to the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme, along with other resources, to support reading development.
