I am a caring, encouraging and creative Dyslexia tutor who holds full Qualified Teacher Status. I have taught a diverse range of children with a variety of needs. My considerable experience includes Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Dyscalculia ASD, behavioural issues and children with English as an additional language.
I also hold a qualification in assessing students with Dyslexia (Diploma in Teaching and Assessing Learners with Dyslexia/Specific Learning Difficulties).
I have been fortunate in my teaching career as I have taught from Nursery to Year 13, both in the State and Independent sector. I have taught a range of subjects and have also been a Special Needs Co-ordinator.
My expertise revolves around supporting students with SEN. These students have a number of conditions that co-exist and they require specialist, dedicated support. However, I do support students who have Dyslexia on its own. I am also happy to tutor students that do not have any special needs but may just need an extra boost.
I love working with young people and seeing them achieve their goals. I appreciate that each student is different, so I always strive to ensure my tutoring reflects their individual needs, goals and learning style.
I will seek to spark the student`s interest in a subject. I often find that the best way to do this is by highlighting its relevance outside of an academic context. Once that eagerness is there, I believe confidence is the key to successful academic learning; I am generous with praise and do all I can to ensure my students feel empowered.
I also use precise assessments to identify weaknesses and target those areas for improvement. Using this method, I have found students achieve the best results and gain maximum enjoyment from their subject.
I have completed many assessments for Dyslexia across Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex. Some of the children, teenagers and adults I have worked with have been in the local areas of Guildford, Basingstoke, Bracknell, Portsmouth, Winchester, Petersfield, Farnham, Haslemere, Godalming, Camberley, Chichester and Brighton.
I look forward to hearing from you
