I am an experienced classroom teacher and tutor now doing tuition full time . I work only in the Tufnell Park area and close by.
I love working with children of all ages and particularly bringing the joy of reading and Maths to those who are struggling within these !
I am very calm and patient having worked for years with special needs students who require a certain approach and an understanding of their needs.
I recently worked as a Maths teacher in a mixed secondary school In the SEN Dept . My pupils were those who needed catch up/ remedial work and those working at NC levels 1 - 4 as in Primary school levels.
Teacher since 1981
A mainstream primary teacher for 17 yrs
Then a special education teacher for the next 21 years
I work with primary , special needs and lower secondary pupils
I specialize in SEN type work as well as Maths and English .
I ran the Primary autism resource base in Camden for nine years
Much varied SEN tutoring experience including work at a behaviour unit
Extensive remedial experience with primary age pupils in English and Maths as well as lower secondary students who are working at a primary level.
I have tutored extensively in pupils homes over the last 10 years.
It is often the one to one nature of tutoring that allows the pupil that little extra help and support that is needed in order for them to maybe ask questions that they may be too shy to ask in class and to have facts/methods explained that clarify their learning.
I listen to the pupil and try and work out exactly where they are missing out or misunderstanding at school and attempt to fill this gap in my sessions.
I work on confidence building and helping the students feel good about themselves as a learner which in todays data driven climate often goes under the radar! Through this positive working relationship the pupil can then reach their potential and even enjoy themselves along the way hopefully!
I always make the session as much fun as possible sometimes incorporating educational games as a way of learning and for short breaks within the lessons.
I believe that the relationship between tutor and tutee is of paramount importance in order that the student makes maximum progress in their studies. I have recently begun to do some online primary tuition for overseas students so am available for this also now.
