I'm an experienced tutor for many different levels of ability, including for people with special needs. I have a pretty good academic background for all subjects that I offer, with my Maths results at A* for GCSE and A for A-level, English Language and Literature GCSE at A, English Literature A-level at B, and Sociology A-level at A. I'm also currently studying Sociology and Politics at degree level.
I'm pretty flexible with availability at the moment, so if you're interested, we can work out a time convenient for you.
I've previously taught numeracy skills to adults with special needs, where I helped to make maths useful and understandable to all my students. I've also worked with children of many different ages and abilities, teaching basic IT and creative skills.
My rates vary depending on how far from Edgware I need to travel. Please contact me if you want to find out more.

Volunteer Basic Mathematics Tutor
I helped to manage a small classroom of adults with learning disabilities, and worked as part of a team of volunteers to teach basic mathematics skills to them. I worked creatively to present abstract concepts in concrete ways—for example, by teaching methods like counting using coins, fingers and beads—to encourage students to approach otherwise difficult problems with confidence. I was also able to assess students’ capabilities to be able to teach them skills that were relevant to their level of understanding, and to manage a classroom with many different levels of ability and interest.

1:1 Juniors’ Club Volunteer Assistant
I worked as part of a team to organise and administrate a monthly social club for disabled children, as well as helping service users develop creative and social skills. I helped to encourage creativity and problem solving skills through games and arts and crafts lessons, and as I was a peer to many of the service users, helped to develop social skills by modelling interactions and encouraging the use of verbal expression in children whose verbal skills were underdeveloped.

Volunteering: I have been volunteering with various charities and student societies for many years, as I believe in giving back to my community. I have led social groups and co-created workshops as part of this.
Photography: I enjoy photographing unusual or striking architecture and art, and I believe it is the key to fully engaging with the world around me and paying attention to detail.
Art: I am currently teaching myself to sketch and to paint with watercolours. As well as developing my own creativity, I enjoy learning new skills and I feel that it is an excellent way to build focus and perseverance.
