Highly experienced and qualified tutor for children with dyslexia providing lessons in London and Suffolk

Methodology

My specialist tutoring in literacy and numeracy for dyslexic children encourages regaining a pleasure in language and learning, leading to a confidence boost and academic success.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I provide specialist support for dyslexic students, including formal cognitive assessments. I also support dyscalculic and dyspraxic children.
I can provide the necessary support for 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams.
I teach general Primary subjects; Maths, English, Science and Humanities subjects to 14; English and Humanities to GCSE and A Level.
I have a fabulous success rate, with dyslexic and non-dyslexic children achieving very highly in public exams - the average English GCSE grade being 'A' overall.
I also can take groups of children for English Language, Literature and History classes, encouraging lively debate and essay practice.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Diploma in Education (Maria Montessori Training Organisation)
BA (Hons) Social Anthropology (London School of Economics)
MSc. Language, Neuroscience and Human Communication (University College London)
Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (Dyslexia Action)

- How much do you charge?

My fees are between £50 and £70 per hour, depending on the level of specialist preparation required.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in children's homes, or from my own home in Redisham, near Beccles, Suffolk. I teach in London several days a week.

- When are you available?

My hours are flexible and vary according to my present schedule of tutoring (please contact me directly)

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Ages 7- adult

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

11+ entrance exams; GCSEs and IGCSEs; A Levels

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been tutoring for 25 years, supporting a range of children's needs from severely dyslexic difficulties to a general boosting of confidence and knowledge-building for exam purposes.
I develop a strong rapport with the children I teach to get to know their strengths in learning so as to help build up their weaker areas of ability. I bring a trust in each child's intelligence and innate desire to learn and aim to make the learning experience into something pleasurable, sustaining, and something that belongs to the student so they will maintain confidence in their interest and ability to learn. I take time getting to know each individual's learning needs and regularly providing feedback to their families which can be shared with school teachers too if useful. I love sharing a range of language resources with children to ignite an interest with them and find those that best respond to their learning-style.
I also have been undertaking formal educational assessments for the past 3 years to inform educational providers of the cognitive profile of a student, particularly useful for dyslexic children. These are sensitive assessments and can contribute to a child being awarded extra time or a scribe for their exams.

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

Yes

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Dyslexia Guild and the British Psychological Association of Testers
