Training Approach:

I am passionate about making learning fun and enjoyable but at the same time achieving great results. Students need to see the benefit of learning new things or developing skills. I reflect how the learning’s will be useful in a real world situation. I work with each individual student’s strengths and coach them to work through their areas of weakness with individual tailored strategies. I explore the pupil’s best learning framework: kinaesthetic, auditory or visual. My approach is to be a vehicle in enabling students to see learning as an exciting exploration of the world. I am also dyslexic and so I am particularly able to empathise with some of the challenges that can go with this.
