Dora

Westminster Tutor

I am a qualified and experienced secondary school and further education college teacher of English / Functional Skills English, Maths / Functional Skills Maths, ICT, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and EFL (English as a Foreign Language) with vast experience of teaching SEN students.

I am the Open University (Politics and Sociolinguistics) and Worcester University (Computing) graduate and a qualified Information and Communication Technology (University of Gloucestershire) teacher with 9 years + experience teaching years 7 to 10 and further education students (16 +).

I am also certified to teach EFL to adults (Cambridge CELTA), in which I also have extensive experience (8 years). I have taught at secondary state schools and further education colleges in Hereford and London.

As far as her professional enrichment is concerned, I completed English GCSE Enhancement Programme in 2015 and Maths GCSE Enhancement Programme in 2014 (authorised by National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) that qualify me to teach both subjects to GCSE levels.

I am currently studying towards my MA Human Rights at Birkbeck, University of London.

Tutoring Experience

I am a skilled lecturer with 11+ years'’ experience delivering instruction, evaluating students, developing and implementing schemes of work for English and maths (KS1 -KS3).

Key strengths include:

• Proven record of reliability and responsibility
• Readily develop rapport with students and staff
• Relate well to people from a variety of cultures and socio-economic conditions
• Ability to motivate students, coordinate pre-examination process and organise exams
• Strong analytical skills, easily able to assess students’ areas of development and devise an appropriate course of action
• Remain calm and professional during times of critical need

I specialise in tutoring maths (KS1-3), GCSE and Functional Skills English (all levels) as well as EFL and ESOL (all levels).

I am experienced in teaching and tutoring students with dyslexia, dyscalculia, Asperger's and ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder).

I have recently retired from full-time teaching as she decided to study law (part time) and concentrate on tutoring. I am keen to tutor throughout the working day and evenings.

Tutoring Approach

Having been working as a Special Educational Needs Tutor since 2007 crucially enhanced my understanding of diverse learning abilities of pupils. Although, as an ICT trainee teacher (2006/2007), I did practice differentiation with regards to different learning styles (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic), working with SEN pupils brought my attention to the link between differentiation, well-planned lessons and the ultimate success of the learning process.

I am enthusiastic and patient.
