City of Westminster Tutor

I am a young-at-heart tutor. I enjoy helping others and am passionate about teaching & learning in all its forms.
My favourite part of Maths is GCSE Algebra, my favourite part of English is Grammar, and I particularly enjoy supporting students for 11+ Exam preparation, too.
I have particular interest and experience in Dyslexia, and I am a qualified test/assessment user, which means I can assess levels of competence, IQ, etc. and the results can be used to start the application for Exam Access Arrangements, but most importantly can be used to initiate the right kind of support for each individual.

Tutoring Experience

I have been a Tutor for over 15 years. In that time I have taught children, as young as 3, to read and write, and supported students of all ages and abilities on their road to Further Education.
I have also worked as a Learning Mentor with pupils with EAL (English as an Additional Language), Dyslexia, Social & Emotional Difficulties, among others.
I have attended many courses in 'teaching and learning' including counselling, mediation, and coaching. I was also a Youth Worker for a County Council for a few years, which has allowed me to have a deeper insight into young people's views on learning and life in general.

Tutoring Approach

I use a conjunction of all my knowledge and expertise in my tutoring sessions, in order to not only provide support in knowledge itself, but also provide learning strategies that can be helpful in life overall.

Note: The price stated in the 'special needs' subject is for Dyslexia support, however, I am happy to discuss academic support for other special needs.
