David Schiff -Milton Keynes- specialising in helping children with math problems, making sure that my teaching 'all adds up'.

Methodology

My first step is always to give your child confidence to learn.
I work with children how they learn and as they could be-so that they will attain that level.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialize in supporting children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties; especially with reading, writing & spelling.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Associate member of Professional Association for Teachers and Assessors of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)
The Association of Dyslexia Specialists in Higher Education
Dyslexia Guild
I hold the SASC Form 8 Assessor: DA 15512-1916OL. It means that I am qualified to assess children for reasonable adjustments provision in GCSE exams
I hold qualifications in assessing and teaching children and students with Dyslexia and other learning difficulties including Asperger's syndrome (ASD), ADHD, Dyspraxia, and Dyscalculia.
I am a qualified trainer of TextHelp Read & Write.

- How much do you charge?

There is a free consultation before tuition commences. There is no charge for the initial meeting to discuss your child's needs.
I charge £30-£35, which includes a full learning programme and recommendations how your child should be supported.

There is no charge for travelling within the Milton Keynes & Bedford area.

- Where do you teach?

Teaching can be at my office in Bedford, near the university or at the child's home, which can be in the Bedford or Milton Keynes area.
At the agreement of the child's head teacher, I also teach within the school setting.

Other areas can be negotiated.

- When are you available?

I am available to tutor:
Monday to Friday during the day or evenings 4 to 7.
Saturdays: 12.30 to 2
I do not teach on Sundays as it is my family time

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Children from age 4 years-16
Adults 16 plus

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSE and A level exams.
I assist university students in completing their degree.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor students who are out of my recommended area via Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My support is always provided in a fun way, with teaching you how you learn not how I did.
It is nothing like school! :-)
The innovative methods I use have changed the negativity of students into a positive outlook on education.
Part of the tuition is carried out on my touch screen laptop, by advanced interactive learning games.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 25 years experience of supporting children and adults,(including higher education) assessing and working on a 1-2-1 basis.
I have a particular gift in helping children who cannot read and write or at a basic level, having been very successful in helping them.
I have vast experience in teaching study skills and have developed learning programmes in spelling and reading for individuals.
I am continually working on my professional development by attending training days.

Yes- renewed July 2017

Thank you once again for your valuable support and guidance through my university life. I graduated with a 2:1 (very close to a first), however, without your help and support, even a 2:1 would never have been possible.

You started as my academic skills mentor in my very first vulnerable year and now regard your support as vital in my success in gaining my first degree and now obtaining a masters degree. I can only say how thankful grateful and pleased that I came to university at that time otherwise I would not have had your support. Thank you.

Thank you so much David, for the wy you have nurtured Jake and raised his confidence to such a level that he was able to overcome his dyslexia difficulties.
His academic successat school and being assured of a place in BMS is only down to your patience and guidance.
