Personal Description:

18 years of teaching means I have a lively approach to literacy and learning, individualised to each learner, using a variety of teaching methods, formal and informal, active and visual. With specialist teaching qualifications in dyslexia and language acquisition I have a lot of experience working with learners who have difficulties such as dyspraxia, autism and also visual or hearing impairments. My aim is that the tutee will know that the sessions have helped them learn and improve! They should soon see an increase in confidence and progress.

Tutoring Experience:

After 18 years in mainstream primary and secondary schools focusing on literacy at all levels I now work in Leicestershire and Warwickshire as a Tutor (both local authority funded and private work). Much of this centres on preparation for GCSE. This means I am up to date on current curriculum and exam demands. I’m a holistic teacher – I want to inspire a love of learning and of using language in learning. Lessons will include fun but I will expect work and good concentration. Additionally I am an experienced Study Skills Tutor with students with dyslexia at University (Birmingham).

I love the work I do with all students and the diversity of my current work!

Alongside specialist work I do specific English coaching for Common Entrance at 11+ and 13+ as well as coaching for study skills for GCSEs at whatever level. This year (exams May/June 2016) I am tutoring a range of other subjects for GCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

Prior to taking on a tutee I would like to meet for at least 45 minutes with learner and parent and view National Curriculum levels in English Reading, Writing and Mathematics and latest school reports. We need to discuss what is required. After two paid tutoring sessions I would like to report on progress in the areas agreed and identified, giving detailed feedback and for us to have further discussion.You will want to know what my assessment of your child’s particular areas of weakness may be and how I best judge to work to further their progress in literacy. It is vital that we both know what we are to expect from each other. Within these meetings we will agree on what sort of homework tasks are appropriate. Progress will be regularly monitored and parents kept informed.
I welcome learners of all abilities and will endeavour to help them all achieve their potential.
