Computer Studies / I.T.
Hello, I live in Sunderland. I have a B A (Hons) degree and a Certificate in Education specialising in Maths and English and I have also attended relevant courses (for example in Dyslexia Awareness) and have a Counselling certificate.
I have had approximately 20 years experience of teaching English, Maths and I C T and this has included helping pupils to prepare for the SATs tests and for GCSEs and I am familiar with the new specifications. I have worked with children and adults on a one to one basis and in groups and fully understand the needs of both.
I have had extensive experience teaching in schools and am therefore familiar with the requirements of the national curriculum key stages 1,2 3 and 4.
I also have a vast array of resources and past exam papers and can create resources that are tailor made for a specific pupil.
I enjoy working creatively and will tailor learning to the particular interests of the pupil if necessary as I feel that this makes the work more interesting and meaningful for them. I have established excellent relationships with pupils in the past and have a sensitive, caring and thoughtful approach.
In the first session I carry out an assessment in order to get an idea of the needs of the pupil and use this as a trial session. Pupils don't have to continue unless they are happy with everything.
Cancellation policy - 24 hours notice please or I have to charge for the session as I'll have spent time preparing for it.

At first my daughter was totally lacking confidence in GCSE English, and Helen dealt with this by taking her back a key stage, to show her she knew the work.
Then Helen returned to GCSE and broke down the work, gave good examples for the explanations and now my daughter is doing a lot better because her confidence is coming back.
Home work was set between sessions.
I would recommend Helen.
Thank you Helen.
