Personal Description:

I have a First Class Honours Degree in Teaching, Learning and Mentoring, which I gained whilst working full-time as a Teaching Assistant at an inner-city school. The combination of experience and academia has given me an understanding of how and where children struggle in school, the impact on their development and self-esteem and what can be done about it.

I have worked with children for many years and currently tutor around 20 children a week, aged 4 to 11, with reading, writing, maths, homework, 11plus and entrance exams. I can`t imagine not working with children every day and feel very lucky to be able to do so.

I have experience and understanding of special needs and have worked very closely with really complex learning difficulties. I have students with dyslexia and dyscalculia.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught whole classes and groups, as well as providing support on an individual basis. I have proven success moving children on through a new phonics programme and have, over the years taught countless children to read. I am passionate about securing their reading skills, as without them, the whole curriculum can be inaccessible.

I am especially dedicated to helping children who have problems with maths. As somebody who struggled with maths as a child, I feel I have a good understanding of the difficulties some children face and I have an enormous amount of patience! I receive great feedback from parents who see their children improve in this area.

Tutoring Approach:

I find that interacting and getting children both physically and mentally involved helps to secure deep knowledge and learning. Boys especially don`t want to sit and do worksheets and I am constantly finding new ways to make their lessons fun. I provide a full hour of intensive tuition and don`t just turn up with a worksheet for your child to complete. I also supply homework if requested and am regularly in touch with parents over progress.

Basically, I look for gaps in learning, fill them and don`t move on until the child is secure, happy and confident. I am very thorough. I know the importance of self-esteem and have been fortunate to see this grow in children many times and witness the impact on their confidence, happiness and ultimately, their learning.
