Information About Susan - Welling tutor
I have been teaching for forty years and have built-up a reputation for being able to form excellent relationships with my pupils. Many of these have had a range of difficulties including autism, dyslexia, and A.D.H.D. I personally take great pleasure in watching my pupils gain in confidence and begin, themselves, to take pleasure in their own improvement.
During the past forty years I have worked as a class teacher in Primary Schools, an English subject teacher in Secondary Schools and a Special Needs teacher in both Primary and Secondary Schools. I am currently working for Bexley's Teaching, Learning and Support Service and have done so for the past ten years. This current post involves working on a one to one basis with pupils with a range of difficulties, many of whom are statemented. The work is carried out both in schools or with pupils who, for a variety of reasons, are not in main stream schools.
Firstly, I consider it to be of the utmost importance to establish a good relationship with my pupils.many of whom have negative feelings towards education because of the difficulties that they are encountering. I work to raise their self-esteem by recognising their strengths and praising their improvements. In the case of pupils with specific learning difficulties or dyslexia I use a highly structured, multi-sensory programme.
