Personal Description:

I have over 20 years experience working with students of all ages including those with learning or language difficulties. I have vast experience in preparing students for all exams including Common Entrance / 11 plus, GCSEs, Access & University. I specialise in teaching a variety of subjects which include English Language & Literacy, Maths, History, R.E, Art and Music. I provide support and study skills for exams and homework support for children and adults on all academic & vocational courses.
I have a current Enhanced DBS and Safeguarding Children certificates. I am also Advisory Practitioner for The Society of Education and Training (formerly Institute for Learning) and have fully Qualified Teacher and Learning Skills Status (QTLS).

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as an experienced and qualified tutor for over 20 years. I teach reading, writing, spelling and speaking/listening skills to those with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and to those whose English is a second language. I teach in a Secondary School in Slough and I also work as Dyslexia Coordinator in a college providing one to one support to those with specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Aspergers & ADHD. I can provide excellent references from schools, colleges, previous students and their parents. I have also worked at the following institutes: Harrow College, Uxbridge College, Barnet College, Hillingdon Adult Education Centre, Kenton Family Learning Centre, Stanmore College, Weald College, West Herts College and for Harrow Borough Council as a Tutor Inspector.

Tutoring Approach:

I use a multi-sensory (visual, auditory and kinesthetic) approach to teaching which includes providing specific reading and spelling programmes when appropriate. I give positive, constructive feedback to maximise learning. I also use basic sign language (BSL) with young children to make learning fun and to assist with spelling. I provide homework, prepare students for exams & interviews and ensure improvement with literacy skills to encourage independent learning.

CURRENTLY TIMETABLING FOR 11 PLUS, GCSEs and COMMON ENTRANCE EXAMS.
