Personal Description:

I am an enthusiastic teacher with 30 years experience in education from toddler groups to A- Level. I live in Helmsley North Yorkshire with 4 teenage children all of whom learn and engage with learning in totally different ways. As a teacher and parent they have given me great insight into the learning processes and the stresses that students have to deal with at school today.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had a multitude of experience in both primary and secondary school settings, and have Qualified Teacher Status for both. I have taught primary subjects across the primary age range and Literacy, French, Maths and Geography within the secondary school. More recently in 2013 I gained specialist teacher status and a Level 7 qualification in SpLD (dyslexia) from Edge Hill University. In 2017 I have had my Assessment Practising Certificate and Teaching Practising Certificate for SpLD Dyslexia renewed by AMBDA. For the last four years alongside my teaching I have been grateful to have had the opportunity to work one to one with students experiencing difficulties with reading , writing, phonological awareness and maths and to develop engaging, individual, structured programs to support their learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to engage my students through an enjoyable, stimulating, multi-sensory learning environment.This enables confidence and self esteem to be developed, whereupon the building bricks for learning can be embedded and students can reach their potential.High expectations are paramount but goals are realistic and achievable. Much of my students learning and progress is based upon identifying pupils strengths and weaknesses, their preferred learning styles and areas for development. A learning profile is created unique to each individual student and an individualised learning program is established.
