Nicola

Norwich Tutor

I am a patient and understanding tutor with a passion for English and literacy.

I also work extensively with childten with additional needs; including those on the autistic spectrum, as well as those with dyslexia and dyspraxia. Additionally, I work with students who have cognitive difficulties such as those associated with retaining information.

I am professional and reliable, and will do my very best to meet your requirements.

I would like to point out that my hourly rate is £20 per hour and not £13.50 as the system keeps showing.

Unfortunately, due to rising petrol costs etc, I am now having to introduce a £5 per lesson petrol charge to students outside a 10 mile driving radius. (Please note that I use the road distances, and not the distances given by the site, as these are given as "as the crow flies". )

Tutoring Experience

I currently tutor/have tutored a number of children with additional needs such as autism, dyslexia and verbal dyspraxia.

Additionally, I have taught adults in a variety of settings including a prison, a further education college and a training provider. I have also worked with these students on a one-to-one basis, assisting them with their literacy and reading skills.

Additionally, I have taught adults with increased needs such as autism and dyslexia, as well as those needing extra support in English and maths through government "welfare-to-work" schemes.

I have taught ICT and assisted with Learndirect schemes.

I have also taught English as a second language within a corporate environment.

I have completed the Award in Education and Training, and will be starting the next phase of teacher training in the Autumn. I am also currently studying for a qualification in supporting learners with additional needs such as autism and dyslexia.

I have GCSE English language, English Literature, Maths and Science all at a higher level pass. I also have A Levels in English Literature and Sociology.

I have an Honours degree in Business Studies with Finance, as well as post graduate qualifications in Psychology.

I have DBS clearance.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is relaxed but consistent. I encourage the student to work through and come up with solutions to tasks themselves. This encourages deep thinking and development of the student's problem-solving skills-set.
