Fun Phonics: Supporting Unlocking the World of Reading

Decoding is a key skill that can unlock many opportunities, however the English language can be challenging to acquire.

Through using proven teaching methods I am able to develop phonics skills to develop proficient, confident readers. Supporting pupils to successfully pass screeners or pupils with suspected or diagnosis of dyslexia to develop their reading skills to support them in accessing more opportunities in the world.

I am a qualified teacher obtaining a BSc in Psychology from UCL and PGCE in Science from Canterbury Christ Church with over 15 years of experience working with young people. I am a passionate teacher, who enjoys supporting individuals learn and grow. In addition to this I am a qualified and practicing SENDCo, which requires the wider leadership and implementation of adapting teaching techniques to support individual's learners needs and development of skills to ensure progress.

About Me

I am a qualified Special Educational Needs Coordinator, with a PGCE in Science and over 10 years of experience tutoring and teaching individuals between the ages of 4 and 21. When I was completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology at UCL, I started tutoring and became sold on teaching: supporting people to develop skills and acquire knowledge; igniting interest and open doors to opportunities are just some of the factors driving my love of teaching.

Creating equity through inclusion is at the heart of my practice, working with individuals to improve and secure their foundational skills acting as a building block for them to overcome hurdles, grow their understanding and confidence as well as access opportunities opportunities throughout their lives. This technique has allowed pupils I work with to go from obtaining U's to achieving a grade 4/5 or stretching pupils who were achieving grades 4/5 to 7's, 8's and 9's.

Whilst outcomes are important relationships are key to this success to allow learning to be fun and engaging, which allows individuals to truly thrive. I love learning! And love igniting that passion in others; I am a firm believer that learning changes lives because learning is for life. The capacity to learn is the superpower we all share. Reframing perspectives and offering new narratives whether it is in relation to a poem, scientific theory or maths equation allows people to unlock their superpower and succeed.

Education

I completed my undergraduate degree at UCL and then went on to a PGCE at Canterbury Christ Church, before completing the National Award for SEN Co-ordination at Middlesex University

Isabel
Spanish online lessons with native spanish teacher for adults and teenagers
I am a native Spanish speaker and a general language enthusiast. In addition to Spanish, I speak German and English. I am 100% confident that I will successfully teach you Spanish (while having fun and relaxing)! I've been teaching spanish for 15 years. I am 41 years old, graduated with honors from the University of Salamanca. My main goal in teaching is to make students feel relaxed and comfortable while studying. Do you already know Spanish? No problem! Rather than building the basics, we can design courses to suit your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can give presentations on topics that interest you or that I present to you, we can discuss current events, engage in debates, you can write summaries of newspaper articles, or we can delve into advanced grammar. Whatever you enjoy and need, we can do it together. All my courses combine speaking, listening and grammar practice in interaction with me. Unless you are a very advanced student, we work with learning materials created by some of the best language learning publishers in Germany. These materials serve as a common thread for our course, introducing new words, grammar and exercises at a good pace and in an interesting way, keeping you engaged and motivated. I also show you German food, music and places. In addition, I will introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level. Another important factor for me is the personal connection. We usually start our lessons with how the weekend or previous weekdays were like. Contact me now to arrange a first lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn more about you, your needs and desires and thus design the optimal course for you.
