Personal Description:

My mix of tuition subjects may appear unusual - my degree was in Modern Languages, leading me iinto banking. There I developed good computer skills, which I love to pass on. At 40 I realised my life's ambition to qualify as a teacher, mainly working with adults needing help with maths and English and also working with parents and children in school contexts. I am a mature person and have found I have endless patience so don't worry about not grasping things first time!

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught literacy and numeracy to adults since 1995, completing my PGCE in 1998. I have recently specialised in numeracy, due to the shortage of good teachers. I have also given one to one support to adults with dyslexia. I have taught on family literacy and numeracy courses in schools and am familiar with current approaches to learning maths and English and the difficulties parents may experience in helping their children. Over the years I have taught hundreds of adults to use computers, including email, the Internet, desk-top publishing and creating presentations. I am also an online tutor for adult numeracy.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in putting at ease children and adults who may be nervous because of lack of confidence and / or lack of success at school, including people with dyselxia. I feel strongly that people cannot learn effectively unless they are enjoying the process and that learning and laughter belong together.
