Personal Description:

I specialise in supporting children and adults with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties on a 1:1 basis. I believe learning should be relevant and tailored to an individual’s needs and interests. I am very good at putting people at ease as 1:1 tuition can sometimes feel intense or overwhelming. As a tutor, I am very supportive, patient, relaxed and believe maintaining a sense of humour is important.

I normally tutor from my own home. I will consider travelling, if necessary, but may charge an additional fee to cover my travel time and travel expenses, depending on location.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 15 years experience in teaching children and adults with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties such as dyscalculia, autism and dysgraphia using a multi-sensory approach to teaching and learning, entirely focused on successful outcomes. I have specialist qualifications in supporting and teaching people with dyslexia and I can offer screening for dyslexia and scotopic sensitivity syndrome or visual stress.

I am on the Approved Tutors’ List with Dyslexia Scotland.

I have developed and delivered specialised courses aimed at reaching 'hard to reach' or 'disaffected' learners resulting in many achieving qualifications for the first time in their lives and progressing into further education or employment.

I have successfully taught adults, working from core skills through to SQA qualifications with many of these learners going on to college, work and university. I’ve had learners who have won local and national awards in recognition of their achievements.

I can also offer teaching support if you are working towards entrance exams and tests for the Forces, Police and Fire Service.

I am an Assessor and Internal Verifier for Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Core Skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer specialised 1:1 tuition and support. My approach to teaching is learner-centred and takes into account a person’s individual learning style. I encourage people to become critical learners, to question, to gain a deeper understanding. I use a multi-sensory approach to help reinforce learning. Above all, I want learners to enjoy what they are doing and feel a sense of achievement.
