I am a literacy and Dyslexia Specialist with experience of teaching children and adults. I teach GCSE English language and literature with a 100% pass rate. I also teach at primary level and have many years of experience helping children with special needs. I teach functional skills and can help adults with literacy and spoken English
Over 20 years experience in schools and colleges as well as working privately as a tutor.
I am a very calm and patient teacher who believes in praise and constant encouragement. I work from home in a dedicated teaching room where I find students are more able to concentrate. As English , unlike other subjects, requires a lot of books and resources, it is not always possible to have the relevant resources when visiting a students home. I have found that I can plan a lesson and they ask to look at a different area they have done that day in school. By working from home I can quickly meet their needs.
