Available at any time of day, Mondays to Sundays. Classes will continue through school holidays if required.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Fun activities with no judgement made on the student. Relaxed working environment.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught in mainstream primary and special schools ( 4-17year olds) and have also taught children who have been excluded from school. My main area of work has focused on children with speech and language disorders where I have taught within specialised Units within Mainstream Schools.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
CRB check is up-to-date and available on request.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
An 8 year old girl started with me with a reading and spelling age below 6 years. Within 11 weeks her reading age had increased by 18 months and her spelling age by 15 months. She is a much more confident child now and has chosen to carry on her studies with me on a saturday afternoon instead of joining a dance class as she says reading is more important and she likes the classes.
