My name is Nana Opare, I am first class economics graduate student and a qualified SEN teacher from London. I have a passion for supporting young people from all walks of life.
I have experience working with students with challenging behaviour and Special educational needs across schools in Southwark.
Nothing makes me smile more than supporting and assisting young people who lack confidence academically and socially to achieve their targets and personal goals.
In addition to my FIRST CLASS degree, my passion for working with SEN students led me to complete a level 3 course in Special Educational Needs. From this course I was able to learn empathic skills as well as academic knowledge needed in supporting students. The knowledge from this course allows me to daily demonstrate empathy when dealing with vulnerable students, as well as extending constant positivity when working with students who may not be enthusiastic about their work. This course has also increased my knowledge on diversity and how to relate to people from various ethnic backgrounds and faith.
I am a fully qualified teacher with experience working with children with learning difficulties. My main roles include; differentiating literacy and numeracy task for students with ADHD, Asperger syndrome, dyslexic and dyspraxia. On a daily basis I support students in Maths and English lessons Key stage 2, 3 and 4. I also teach Business and Economics at key stage 3, 4 and 5 while encouraging and motivating students in non core subjects and enrichment activities such as food technology, unconditional fitness and cycling aimed at increasing self confidence.
I also offer one to one intervention support following the “Toe by Toe and the Dockside” programme. During my one to one session, I reinforce learning by revisiting topics and activities covered in the classroom; my main priority is to ensure that my students understand what has been taught and are also following and progressing with the national curriculum according to their individual target. I also have experience supporting SEN children in secondary schools who are preparing for their GCSE
I strongly believe an excellent tutor must first of all have an initial assessment to find out student’s current level; in additions to this the tutor must establish areas students find challenging. This allows lessons to be tailored for the individual need. I believe as an excellent tutor should always encourage motivate and challenge students to see themselves as being able to achieve their personal targets. “we can all achieve greatness if we put our mind to it”.
In my teaching I use e-learning materials and other office software’s such as smart art tools for visuals especially working with children with special educational needs. Other programs I use include My-maths and Method maths.
I am an encouraging motivating and enthusiastic tutor, who is passionate about support children with special needs as well as children seeking educational excellence.
