I have a wealth of teaching experience across a wide range of age groups. Having held a Deputy Head post with responsibility for literacy and handwriting, I am well placed to provide progressive engaging tutoring for all abilities.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach all primary and secondary school aged children. Suitable for children with a specific learning disability. Great also for children who have 'slipped through the net'. Perfect for left-hand writers.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA and PGCert ED in Primary School Teaching.
- How much do you charge?
The initial consultation is £145 which includes taking a handwriting assessment/ sample, the first lesson and the Magic Link Workbooks that I will use throughout the tutoring sessions.
Each lesson is 45 minutes within a small group. Each subsequent lesson is £40 per session.
Usually, a child will require between 10-12 lessons to achieve neat joined up writing.
Within the session there is time to discuss any issues or concerns and appropriate homework tasks.
- Where do you teach?
I work from a classroom in my house which is located just outside of Tunbridge Wells - postcode TN3.
- When are you available?
I am available after school and on Saturday mornings.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
Primary and Secondary School (from the age of 5).
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I am a full trained and experienced Magic Link Teacher. Throughout the tutoring I will use the Magic Link Handwriting Workbooks. It is a 30 step programme taught over 10-12 sessions.
Good handwriting is essential for every day school work plus external exams including 11+, Common Entrance, GCSE and A-Level.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
All children are capable of achieving neat, legible cursive writing.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I am a qualified Primary School Teacher and I have taught across all the year groups.
I have a clear understanding of the challenges handwriting can cause within the education system and can offer support.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
GTC Primary School Teacher Registered and I am a member of the National Handwriting Association.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I teach a wide range of students from 5 to 18 who have poor, messy and illegible writing.
Through this step by step programme, confidence and skills will improve which will in turn help school grades.
