Personal Description:

I have degree/diploma/certificate qualifications in Psychology, Statistics, Literacy and Numeracy, English as a Second Language, Special Needs and counselling. I have been a teacher/lecturer since 1962 when I took my first appointment as a teacher with responsibility for special needs pupils in a Junior school. Since then I have been an English teacher, Adult Literacy/Numeracy Tutor and Organiser, EFL teacher, Academic lecturer, GCSE/A Examiner and Moderator and educational author. In addition I have extensive experience of teaching children, teenagers and adults with special needs both as a private tutor and within Secondary and FE/AE organisations.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of teaching Literacy and Numeracy skills to Junior school children, particularly Maths, English and preperation for 11+ and Independent School entry tests. I have taught Maths and Statistics to first year degree level but feel confident teaching to Maths GCSE level. Finally I have experience of helping children and adults with a variety of special needs such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and autism.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very approachable and because of my age have a lifetime of experience watching, listening to and helping children and young people learn. My approach is essentially child-centred in so far as I believe every one is an individual with their own unique stengths and weaknesses. I believe firmly in the idea that individualised programmes of study work effectively.
In order to cater for children taking entry exams, 11+ and other examinations I am available througout the holidays for last minute revision.
