I educate pupils in the local area around Plymouth on a daily basis. I specialize in learning difficulties and disabilities (ASD, ADHD, Asperses etc.).
Apart from classroom teaching and tutoring I've also been a curriculum coordinator for people with ASD. The role involved designing a unique syllabus/curriculum and managed a group of educators.
I’ve been teaching either in schools or private tuition since September 2000. I’m dedicated & hardworking.
I use many different approaches to encourage development. When you see someone understand, learn and expand it is (in my opinion) fantastic.
I will help you achieve your end goal.
I'm available week days, weekends and also during the holidays. I believe it's important to get to know each other first and set out achievable future goals. If you have any more questions please get in touch!
I have over 10 year’s main stream teaching experience in a classroom environment and five years as a tutor/specialist. I’ve taught Music, English, Science, Maths, Art and Primary (KS 1 - 5). I've run my own department. As I’m also a musician I’ve taught guitar, cello, violin, keyboards and music theory.
I’m experienced in working with SEN. I've achieved excellent results with pupils with specific learning difficulties and behavioural problems. My experiences in this area are in Down syndrome, dyslexia dyspraxia, ADHD, Asperger's, ASD, verbal dyspraxia and sensory processing disorder. I’ve also taught pupils with cerebral palsy deafness and visual acuity problems. I've completed a basic sign language course & RPM for ASD. I did this so I could communicate with pupils without relying on a teaching assistant to translate for them/me.
I believe it's very important to understand how people approach learning. Everyone learns differently. I like to understand a pupils strengths through looking at how they learn (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic (VAK)). I take the information I learn and find the best way to adapt teaching/learning. I use a holistic approach.
Whilst in schools my history of success with Ofsted is good/outstanding. I'm committed to improving pupil/personal development with whatever approach works best for you.
Thank you very much for reading my profile.
