Personal Description:

I have been a qualified teacher & lecturer for over 17 years. I am currently working in Secondary Schools and Further Education Colleges. I have worked for Southwark & Lewisham Education Authorities as a consultant and tutor for individual students.

I am qualified to teach mainstream and special educational needs. I specialise in teaching English. I prepare people for the 'Life in the UK' test, I teach Spanish conversation and help children & young adults with their homework. Students improve skills and progress with their education. I devise personal learning plans in consultation with the student and/or parent. I also teach people how to use the computer in the best way that suits them.

I have four children ranging from 4 to 24 years old. Two of my daughters are attending top universities and my son just passed entrance and scholarship exam for a top school in central London. I love teaching. I have worked as a teacher since 1997 teaching adults and children.

During school holidays I am available to teach weekday daytime and during term time I teach on Mondays and Saturdays.

I enjoy finding different and innovative strategies to teach and ensure that my learner is going to achieve the very best. I am a qualified professional Psychologist and Counsellor. Teaching is more than a job to me and I have the skills to help you or your child succeed.

I am a volunteer Scout Unit Helper and was a Girl Guide helper for many years before that. I also volunteer as a Playgroup leader.

Tutoring Experience:

I work as a Special Needs and Mainstream teacher. My main subjects are English and Computing. I teach IT mainly to pensioners who wish to learn how to use the internet. I have been continuously trained for 18 years to help me to successfully teach children, young people and adults; including those with learning difficulties and disabilities. I also do private Tutoring at home and every one of my Tutees who was studying for exams have passed and been offered places at an independent School (Whitgift). I mainly help them with study skills, exam practice and improving their English.

I specialise in teaching English, Citizenship and Spanish. I prepare people for the 'Life in the UK', I do Spanish conversation and grammar classes and help children & young adults with their homework.

I have worked for Croydon and Southwark Education Authorities as Education Consultant and giving private tuition (paid by the authorities) specifically helping students on the Autistic Spectrum. I have acted as education and qualification adviser for different students who live in supported living environments and helped them to gain a variety of qualifications and work. I have worked for Croydon, Southwark and Lewisham Colleges. All of my students have passed their course and exams with top marks. Other students not taking exams show good progress in their independence and life skills.

I have worked as a Counsellor for a Parenting Charity and conducted Literacy Workshops for Adult Education Centres.

At work I train people on how to teach students with learning disabilities in a positive, caring and effective way. I also run short courses on how teachers and lecturers can use different programs and innovative resources to maintain the learners' interest.

I do lots of voluntary work in the Community teaching toddlers and young people new skills. I also worked teaching ESOL and continue to teach English privately.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to find a variety of ways to teach you or your child in the most successful way. I am being regularly trained at work on the best methods of teaching, assessing, producing resources, etc. I make learning FUN!

I use a variety of resources and methods to suit each individual need. I carry out continuous assessment to ensure that what is being taught is checked for understanding. I like to incorporate the learner's individual interests into lessons to ensure that they have an enjoyable time learning.

I give feedback on progress and advice on how to continue to work at home and improve further. I continuously find strategies to help you or your child succeed. I am very sensitive to a child and adult's needs and in finding out the best methods to help them learn and progress.
