Personal Description:

A conscientious, resourceful and accomplished enabling support worker with excellent communication skills and a strong work ethic. Skilled and proven track record within the higher education sector. Student centered focus on learning needs and results. I work hard to develop a supportive environment and encourage an enabling culture built on close discussion, liaison and student centered teamwork. I currently support 10 students within various disciplines with a very high success rate of passing course work and exams.

Tutoring Experience:

Currently working at two universities within the Glasgow area as a Non-Medical Enabling Support Worker. Supporting postgraduate and undergraduates with their studies. Experienced working with students who have Dyslexia, Aspergers Syndrome, Autism, hearing impairments, visual impairments, mental health and substance abuse issues. Experienced in student mentoring, student support, note taking, and proof reading. Liaising with other internal and external agencies including the higher education sector and social work department.

IT Proficiency in: MS Word, Excel, Internet, SPSS, Athens and Email

Assistive Technology: Producer/Reader; My Reader; Read & Write Gold; JAWs V11; Dolphin Easy; Omnipage V9.0; Tiger Suite and Tiger Suite Braille

I support and work with students to improve their report writing, essay writing, research projects and dissertation writing skills. This includes working within the high school, further and higher education sectors.I tutor research based skills , develop critical analysis and descriptive writing techniques.

I can guide students through NHS ethics approval and university ethics approval. Currently working with first year nursing students, third year business students, second year social scientists and a physics PhD student

I am a qualified speech course instructor and coach recovering stammerers to face their fears and reduce their stammering behavior.

Students send me previous work that they have done and we discuss where they want to improve on.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on developing an understanding of my student, their needs, and the coursework requirements. A common strategy is to start the course work as early as possible and secure the best grades achievable as this allows for leverage should the exam be difficult. This entails unpicking and understanding the question being asked. From my years of experience students tend to do better at course work and less well within the limited time constraints of an exam environment. With my special needs students I synchronize with Effective Learning tutors, the Social Work Department and other internal and external agencies to secure the best support for my students.There is a strong correlation between work and grades which is important to understand and engage with at the start.
