Amira - Chalk Farm - School support

Methodology

I have five years experience working with children and young people; particularly with individuals who present with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) needs.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Literacy, Numeracy, and GCSE study skills

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am a Psychology Graduate BSc (Hons). I am currently employed as an Assistant Educational Psychologist (please note that for ethical reasons, however, I can only support students academically outside of my normal job role). I am trained and experienced in supporting students with Special Educational Needs (SEN), including ADHD, ASD, Anxiety, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Global Delay.

- How much do you charge?

My fee is £50 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at students' homes. I am based in North London but I am willing to travel to meet the needs of the students. Please contact me to arrange.

- When are you available?

I am available on weekdays and weekends. Please contact me to confirm.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach KS1 and KS2 (literacy and numeracy) and GCSE study skills.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My tutoring style focuses on promoting students' self-confidence and self-esteem. I encourage students to develop a growth-mindset approach to learning. Research has shown that those with a growth mindset tend to implement learning goals which focus on increasing knowledge and view utilisation of effort as a positive behaviour trait and challenge themselves with activities that help them build on skills and abilities.

I teach to each student's strengths while improving areas of weaknesses. This provides students with a meaningful educational experience where they develop autonomy over their own learning and develop an understanding of how to use strategies that work best for them.

In the first consultation with a student, we will explore their strengths, needs and goals. We will discuss how best we can work together to achieve their desired outcomes.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

In my undergraduate degree, I have studied the psychological theories underpinning teaching and learning. Modules I studied include; Psychology and Education and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

My previous job role as an SEN Teaching Assistant gave me a good understanding of the National Curriculum and National academic expectations. I have 5 years experience supporting students academically and making the curriculum accessible for SEND pupils. In my current employment as an Assistant Educational Psychologist I apply psychology to improve and monitor Social, Emotional and Academic outcomes.

I am experienced in implementing strategies specific to the needs of children and young people experiencing ADHD, ASD, Executive Function difficulties. I use evidence based interventions for Dyslexia and Dyscalculia which are baselined, tracked and evaluated to monitor progress. I use CBT skills which helps children and young people understand the links between their thoughts, feelings and behaviour to help manage anxiety/stress.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an enhanced DBS Certificate.
