About Me

I tutor holistically, so I care about my student's academic progress as well as their wellbeing. Therefore I offer a strengths based approach, building learner confidence and skills.

Students enjoy a co-productive approach. Together we identify and work towards goals. I assess the learner's knowledge at the start and then tailor our sessions towards progress in the identified areas.
As a qualified and experienced teacher, I use a range of strategies to support learner acquisition, problem solving skills and creative writing skills. No concept is too hard to master!

I endeavour to include activities that offer engaging sessions with the right level of challenge. Sessions are practical and creative in their design. This allows students to really understand what they are learning and why, making links between new information and building on previous learning.

Concepts that are deemed ‘too difficult’ at school are broken down into small manageable steps in order for students to gain a sense of achievement.

Sessions can inspire as well as encourage confidence in cooking skills, Maths and English. Students are supported to gain independence in their problem solving skills and their literary writing skills. I share learning to learn skills by encouraging student idea and thought generation, organisation and communication skills.

Education

PhD in Psychology (ongoing)
I hold qualified teacher status (QTS) GTP PGCE SCITT
Bachelors degree in Education and Psychology BSc
Attended Grammar School and Sixth Form

Experience / Qualifications

I have 12 years experience as an educational practitioner and tutor. I have taught in mainstream and SEN schools. I have worked with disaffected youth in PRUs and gifted and talented children. I specialised in maths and literacy development including phonics, reading, and writing.

I have worked with a range of special needs including cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, speech and language difficulties, sensory processing disorder, global depay, organisation and planning difficulties, ADHD, medical and self-care needs, and children with PMLD, SLD, and MLD. I have experience with writing bespoke, holistic learner specific curriculums, and have written curriculums for SEN schools and home schools. My sessions are stimulating and tailored to the student's specific needs.

I have developed and implemented curricula including schemes of work and policies that accommodate learning, physical, sensory, and communication needs, supported school staff (teachers SENCOs, learning support assistants) to develop individualised materials and resources, researched and implemented SEN interventions and programs, devised and written targets and Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) and assessed, monitored and reported on progress.

**In light of recent developments, I am now available for sessions online via Skype or Zoom**
I specialise in tutoring Maths, English Language, English Literature and cooking skills for primary mainstream and SEN children. I create opportunities for students to develop a strong knowledge of the foundations in these subjects. I also have experience of teaching gifted and talented primary children. Students are encouraged to look for connections, problem solve and be creative in their learning. I tutor essential skills, therefore even cooking classes involve mathematical learning opportunities! Learning can involve key focus areas that I will base assess at the start, review and chart student's progress. I can offer practical advice to parent/carers and assist with homework activities. We can work alongside the school/classroom curriculum where I can also provide a deeper learning of current school learning. I can provide learning that is engaging, challenging and rewarding. Looking forward to meeting you.

Merveille
Private tuition in French / homework help / job correction
French teacher in a language school, I propose an individualized pedagogy, a playful approach to the French language. My goal is to (re) discover the richness of the French language without overburdening you. My point of view is that language is a social tool for communicating. That's why I will not do grammar, even if it will obviously have a place in learning. I have already had the opportunity to work with all audiences by adapting the approaches. However, I keep some constant that have proven themselves. For example, with teenagers and adults, I will work on nursery rhymes to improve phonetics even if it sounds childish. I also use games to learn, for example, to describe physically or to tell his routine ...
