About the lesson

I have a lot of experience and success in working with individual students to raise their English levels. I am adept at developing students' self- esteem and their ability to overcome barriers to learning.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach school English up to GCSE level, enabling students to develop their skills in both English Language and English Literature. I have extensive knowledge of the English curriculum having taught for may years in a comprehensive school. I am adept at developing comprehension and writing skills. I also teach English grammar, planning, study skills and essay writing, and work with undergraduates and mature students. I am a dyslexia specialist and have extensive experience of working with students with Special Educational Needs and English as a Second Language. I am an award winning poet with 4 full collections published. I am a co-editor of an acclaimed poetry journal and also teach poetry and creative writing to adults.

I have a Fine Art degree, a post-graduate teaching qualification, and an OCR Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties from UCL. I have attended many short courses, for example, on Speech and Language Skills, Memory Skills, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, and other SEN specialisms. I have Chartered London Teacher status.
