I have academic qualifications to MA level in Art practice and theory and a postgraduate teaching certificate (PG Cert in teaching in Higher and Adult Education Level 7) and experience in the field of teaching and support in a variety of settings and at a range of levels. I am in my mid fifties with a calm and friendly outlook.
I have had lecturer posts in Art & Design and Alternative Curriculum in Further Education, teaching and support roles in special schools in the compulsory education sector, and experience working as a tutor on a consultancy basis with schools, children's services/ the virtual school and tuition agencies. The support has included help with particular programmes of study, maths and English as part of the National Curriculum, as well as help with basic skills such as fluency in reading and improvement of maths at a basic level.
My approach to teaching is a responsive one. I am very patient, calm and friendly and have experience of working flexibly with students to suit their needs. Throughout my teaching and support work I have always focused on creating a learning environment that is relaxed and informal, but that is focused on students' understanding of concepts and making progress towards their goals.
