James

Gravesend Tutor

I am an enthusiastic and dedicted teacher willing and able to work with wide range of pupils. I have worked as a teacher, Headteacher and Local Authority Advisor in a number of Local Authorities. I have two children, one who is dyslexic and hypercalculic and one who is dyscalculic and hyperlexic.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching for over 25 years in both the primary and secondary sectors. I have experience of working with all Key Stages and have worked with Gifted & Talented students as well as pupils with Special Educational Needs.

As a Headteacher I have worked within and helped to develop the Secondary Selection process (11+) as well as supporting pupils and parents trough the Apeals process.

As an Educator and later an Advisor for Kent County Council I have knowledge of supporting, teaching and guiding pupils with a range of Special Education Needs.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to teaching and tutoring is based on the same principles of employing multi-sensory, rigorous and fun learning styles based on the individual's needs and preferences. I believe that learning occurs most effectively when the pupil is motivated to learn and feels comfortable to take risks academically.
