I am a hard-working, organised and trustworthy individual. I find helping others rewarding and this is something I want to continue to do. I hold an AMBDA qualification and a Level 7 Post Graduate Certificate in Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties. I am currently a sixth form tutor supporting students in all areas of their learning from proof-reading work, organisation to helping choose the next step in their education. Over the years I have worked in several schools, supporting students with their learning and currently provide 1:1 tuition for children from the age of 6-18, building their confidence and learning. I believe that there is no such thing as ‘I can’t’ and if the correct support and strategies are put into place, we can achieve far more than we ever imagined we could.

I use a calm, patient and reassuring approach. I believe building up the confidence of the learner is priority when it comes to learning. I use the first few sessions to get to know the student, their interests and learning style in order to plan lessons and support in accordance to this. I also feel it is important for the students to discover their strengths and what they are good at and build on this, rather than focusing on aspects they find challenging and difficult to increase their confidence and self-esteem.
