I have extensive experience of working with school students and adults with English as a Second Language, developing speaking, writing, listening and reading skills. I teach English up to GCSE level, and students with Special Educational Needs, including those with a Statement.

I have a post-graduate teaching qualification from Goldsmiths University, and an OCR Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties from University College London. I have taught Literacy and English in a North London Comprehensive school for many years and have Chartered London Teacher status. I have a first Class Fine Art degree and am a practising artist . I have attended many short courses, for example, on Speech and Language Skills, Memory Skills, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, and other specialisms. I am a poet with 4 full collections of poetry published, a reviewer and an editor of an acclaimed poetry journal. I teach for the Poetry School in London.

I charge £40 for individual sessions of 1 hour. I charge £120 for a Literacy Assessment (reading, writing, spelling, phonics, comprehension) which includes one hour with the student and a detailed written report.

I have many years experience working as a SEND/ English teacher within the state sector, with individual students, small groups and whole classes. I have worked extensively with students with a Statement of Special Educational Needs and those with English as a Second Language. I teach both primary and secondary age students. I worked for several years as an Individual Support Teacher and Home Tutor for the boroughs of Camden and Islington. I have run short courses in writing skills and grammar for adults and have taught Art and Citizenship in schools. I am an artist, a prize-winning poet with four published poetry collections, a reviewer, and an editor of a highly regarded poetry journal. I am a reader for The Literary Consultancy. I teach for The Poetry School and run poetry workshops.

My daughter has been a student of Linda’s for over 3 years. She goes into the lessons happily and I have seen a huge improvement in her writing, reading and spelling skills. I would recommend Linda as a tutor for children with dyslexia.

Linda has been helping my son Robin, who is dyslexic, for a couple of years now. He has loved working with her and each session has also boosted his confidence. Linda's patience and structured approach has definitely helped him improve his reading & spelling as well as acquiring a methodical approach to learning.

B
Boo

Linda was recommended to us by a friend and she has been a godsend to our son. Initially she undertook a comprehensive assessment of his ability in Reading, Writing and SPAG, which was eye-opening as we had never had such detail from school. This was then followed by weekly 1 hourly meetings, during term times, targeting the areas that needed special attention and also taking into account the topics school would be focusing on during Years 5 & 6. She is quietly calm and determined, her motto being "little and often" which worked well for our son and was very appropriate as we had two years to ensure our son reached a reasonable KS2 level before going to secondary school. I would have no hesitation recommending Linda, her non-aggressive approach was exactly what we, as a family, needed.
