Joanne - Godalming - Support for Students with dyslexia

Methodology

Pupils learn best through lessons tailored to their interests and needs and this is essential to promote self-esteem and motivation. I spend at least two to three hours, often four or more, preparing material for each and every lesson.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English key stage 1-3, including specialist literacy teaching for pupils with specific learning difficulties or other special needs. I also teach study skills, particularly for pupils at secondary school.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA English Hons (Rhodes, SA), TEFL, PGCEE (University of Derbyshire), Dip RSA specific learning difficulties,dyslexia (OCR Level 5 certificate completed at Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, Frensham). I teach pupils of all abilities but have a particular interest in those with specific learning differences such as dyslexia. I have taught English to all age groups from key stage 1 to adult. Professional and personal references available.

- How much do you charge?

£55 per hour plus travel, depending on distance to learner's home or school. I set targets for six lessons at a time, offering regular opportunity for review of progress. After an initial teaching session to determine whether you would like to proceed, I ask for commitment to just 6 lessons at a time. I do not charge for missed lessons as long as I am notified up to two hours before the lesson.

- Where do you teach?

I work part-time at local schools and also teach pupils privately at my home in Godalming, Surrey, or can travel to learners' homes or schools in and around Godalming.

- When are you available?

By negotiation, including some school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Key stage 1, 2, 3, any level.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

My approach is personal, multi-sensory and tailored to the individual. I offer a lot of kinaesthetic, hands-on activities to children who learn best that way so the way I work does not lend itself to online tutoring. I therefore do not offer it.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

It's my task to make your learning as successful and enjoyable as possible. It's important that you and I get on well and that I work hard to understand how you learn best.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I teach English to KSI, 2 and 3 pupils of all abilities and literacy to pupils with specific learning difficulties. I have a special interest in dyslexia, but teach pupils of all abilities.

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

Yes, obtained through a local school where I work part-time.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Rhodes University (South Africa), Derby University, Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre (Surrey).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently work with a range of pupils of different abilities and ages, particularly pupils with dyslexia.

I cannot thank Joanne enough for coming into our lives and changing my daughter from one who saw dyslexia as a problem to one who only sees it as a way to find a different solution. Since seeing Joanne her levels have gone up considerably in literacy and reading... her spelling has greatly improved but perhaps of equal importance so has her confidence".
