« Andy is such a kind genuine person and a great educator in and out of the school system. I have known him for years and watched all the hard work he put in to education and teaching youngsters . He recognised in my son things I hadn't recognised myself but once Andy pointed it out to me I knew what to do and how to do it. »

Learning supprt, Special Educational needs, English as an Additional Language and General English tuition ages 4 - 16 years on line - including Mandarin Chinese tuition

Methodology

I am an experienced teacher who has taught Learning Support (LS), Special Educational Needs (SEN) and English As and Additional Language (EAL) , Primary and Secondary curriculums and learning support. I have 23 years experience and have taught as an online tutor for 4 years too.

I have taught at all levels from early years through to IGCSE, and taught SEN and EAL pupils in mainstream and special settings too. My teaching is very much student centred and I teach at the pace the student learns best at - I am not pushy and I allow time for the student to develop confidence from my empathetic approach, which is why I have such great feedback from parents and students.

I hold masters degrees in Special Education and Inclusion and have undertaken much practitioner research - relating my academic reading to my work situations, so that I have a solid basis of understanding the effects of the approaches and materials I use for teaching and learning.

Lessons usually begin with a welcome chat and a few minor conversational details just as you would expect to hear from a partner or parents. We then get down t the business of teaching and learning. I am not a great believer in additional homework, but I may require some over learning , particularly when teaching vocabulary or reading.

I also have several Chinese teachers working for me and I am able to accommodate such requests for online teaching of Mandarin Chinese too.

When you learn with me you get all the advice and experience that has seen me present at conferences in Asia and Europe on LS/SEN and EAL teaching and the knowledge that I am using materials and approaches that have a sound underpinning from my own practitioner research.

Background

23 years experience as a senior teacher and head of department in learning support , Special Educational Needs and English As an Additional Language. Experience with dyslexia, ASD and ADD/ADHD pupils and those with SEMH too. I am now self employed but still engaged with 1:1 online teaching with several COBIS schools around the world, such is my reputation and experience. I still routinely travel across Europe and Asia to support schools and present training for teachers.

I have a commendation from the Dept Education for EAL teaching.

Andy is such a kind genuine person and a great educator in and out of the school system. I have known him for years and watched all the hard work he put in to education and teaching youngsters . He recognised in my son things I hadn't recognised myself but once Andy pointed it out to me I knew what to do and how to do it.
