Personal Description:

I am positive and patient person who is always willing to adapt and find innovative methods in order to help students develop a greater understanding of their subject area(s). I am calm and consistent in my approach to tutoring and my friendly manner puts students at ease in order that they may get the best out of their tutoring sessions.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for 6 years, I have worked in mainstream, a behaviour support base, a language and communication unit with children with autistic spectrum disorders and currently teach in a Gaelic medium nursery. I tutor on a regular basis, mostly at primary level and this includes tutoring pupils with additional support needs. I have experience teaching at all levels of the primary school and also tutor pupils in secondary school.

Tutoring Approach:

I take an informal approach to tutoring particularly with youger students and prefer that students call me by first name so that I am not seen as an extension of the classroom which may have a negative effect on some pupils. I create a calm and structured environment and use practical activities where possible to consolidate learning in an enjoyable way.
