Personal Description:

I am a specialist teacher and Assistant Head Teacher who continues to tutor for one reason only: I am passionate about helping children achieve their potential. I had quite a few difficulties as a child at school and did not have a very positive educational experience until one teacher realised my potential and helped me to achieve it. It is my goal to be that teacher for as many children as possible. Everyone has the potential to succeed no matter how challenging they find things. They just need the support to overcome their barriers and realise this potential.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently an Assistant Head teacher in a local primary school. I am responsible for mentoring other teachers and leading SEN, English and Science within the school. I also hold lead teacher status in Visual maths, Extending Literacy and Autism and I am considered a leading expert in Autism Spectrum Disorders and similar barriers. Indeed, my research has been cited internationally and I am regularly asked to speak at academic and professional conferences.

In addition to this, I am an associate lecturer at the University of Plymouth where I lecture in Psychology, Special Needs Education and Science.

In my previous position I was a local science advisor, supporting both primary and secondary teachers in the delivery of effective science education and I was SENCO and Head of Science.

I have 12 years experience in teaching and have taught children as young as four right through to adults at university. I have an outstanding progress record and this has led to my status as a lead teacher in a range of areas. I started tutoring when I was 18 and have an excellent track record of helping all students to achieve their potential whether they are 8 year olds struggling with literacy or 24 year olds who need support with their degree studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I do not have any one tutoring style. Different people have different learning types which require different teaching styles and so I tailor my tutoring style to the learning type of the tutee. In the first meeting I establish the learning type of the tutee. For children I usually have a preliminary meeting where I assess their learning style and assess the level at which they are at. During this meeting I also speak with the parents and find out what they want to gain from my tutoring sessions. For adults and teenagers I again meet with the tutee and find out which areas they find difficult and what, if any previous knowledge they have. I then draw on their strengths in a subject area to complement and enhance their weaknesses.
