Holmfirth Tutor

I'm a friendly and approachable, highly experienced and versatile teacher who loves to inspire and make learning fun. I'm a mum of two (now grown up) children. I can provide a recent full enhanced DBS. I'm still teaching full time and I'm looking for tutees for evening and weekends in the local area

Tutoring Experience

I have taught Geography and Biology to A' level, and Science and English to GCSE, as well as Functional Skills English and Maths to adults. I have also prepared children for the verbal reasoning parts of Grammar School entrance exams. I specialise in English, literacy and communication skills and life skills. I have a wealth of experience working with children, teenagers and adults with special needs including autism, ADHD and behavioural and emotional difficulties. My students have ranged from non-verbal communicators to GCSE level, and I have taught people with physical disabilities.

Tutoring Approach

I have a good understanding of how people learn I will use a wide variety of strategies and techniques to help them achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Learning does not just have to be from books or in the classroom and I am always happy to find more creative ways to provide learning opportunities.
