Experienced SEND Teacher- Special Educational Needs: Literacy and Numeracy Skills

Literacy and Numeracy skills can be challenging for pupils to acquire, whether this is decoding/ spelling for pupils with Dyslexia; comprehending aspects of language for pupils with Autism or maths related anxiety for pupils suffering with poor academic self-esteem, these sessions will improve the necessary skills to build a strong foundation and supporting progress in academia and development of other skills needed on a daily basis.

Learning should always be fun!

Skills can be developed through honing in on interests and making learning relatable to real-life incorporating games and quizzes to not only improve literacy and numeracy but working, visual and auditory memory skills as well as supporting metacognitive skills (independence and organisation) Focussing on developing skills with high repetition and low stakes testing to increase ability and confidence.

I am a qualified and practicing SENDCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) in a secondary provision responsible for designing and implementing successful interventions to improve these skills. I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE in Science and over 15 years of experience working with young people with special educational needs, with a genuine passion for teaching and supporting individuals learn and grow.

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

Benoit
Private math lessons - Limoges or online - Qualified and experienced math teacher
I am a qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career by teaching remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual academic support by following educational training at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private mathematics lessons daily for over ten years. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I provide my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (online via the internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This board is specially designed to promote student/teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to take advantage of it.

Math has never been easier !. Mathematics support for secondary, higher education, Bachelor.
I offer math lessons suitable for all levels and ages, up to master's level. I offer different types of courses: - Regular lessons to maintain a constant level of competence. - "Intense" courses over a period of a few days or weeks, during which we will work for several hours in a row in order to prepare for an exam or a specific project. - Preparatory courses to help students make the transition to higher education. My main objective is to help and accompany the student by offering theoretical courses, as well as practical exercises to apply the theory that we have studied together. I place great importance on concrete examples, because theoretical mathematics can seem abstract to many people. I can also provide support to master's/bachelor level students who carry out studies or data analyzes as part of their written work. I am able to assist you in various areas of mathematics such as algebra, analysis, statistics, algorithms, logic, etc. Feel free to contact me for more details !

Salah Eddine
Math support courses for high school students (Science Maths, Science Exp, Letters ...)
As a teaching professional, I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge. My goal is to provide quality education. I am aware that some topics may seem complex, but often this is simply the result of an inadequate explanation by the teacher. With me, you will discover a real interest in the material! We strive together to achieve academic excellence, overcoming the shortcomings and difficulties encountered by your child. Studies will become a pleasant experience for him. In addition to the courses, I can also help with school orientation, identifying their preferences and highlighting the advantages and benefits of a fulfilling educational ambition. The sessions generally take place according to the following stages: 1️⃣ The first sessions are devoted to the assessment of the student's level in order to detect existing gaps. 2️⃣ Next, we create a personalized plan to address these gaps, including the number of hours of work needed, specific areas to focus on, and appropriate training and development exercises. 3️⃣ We stay in constant contact with the student's class teacher, to keep up to date with the latest requirements and ensure a consistent approach. 4️⃣ Subsequently, I provide exams similar to those that are likely to be asked in class, to prepare the student effectively. 5️⃣ Upon request, I write a regular report, usually monthly, to keep parents informed of their child's progress throughout their course. I adapt my methodology according to the specific needs of each student, thus offering them a personalized and adapted work approach. In addition, I offer crash courses for students preparing for the start of the school year, allowing them to start the year well prepared, with a solid lead on the school curriculum. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help you.
