Melissa - Bexley - School English

Methodology

I am an experienced and qualified special needs teacher and assessor of adults and children with SpLD/dyslexia. I teach, administer dyslexia screening and tests for exam access arrangements. I have trained with the National Handwriting Association.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Study skills
Assistive technology
Dyslexia
Dyspraxia
SEN
Handwriting
Literacy

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have the OCR Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties, QTLS (qualified teacher and lecturer status), the PGCE, an MPhil and BA Hons in Literature. I attend numerous professional courses run by the National Handwriting Association, PATOSS and the Dyslexia Guild.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £60 per hour at my home. I travel at an additional cost of £25 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to work from home but will travel at additional cost.

- When are you available?

Weekdays and Saturdays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

6 years - adult. I work with all levels from beginning readers to A level and university students. I also work in a further education college and a university part-time.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to tutor online through Skype and would be happy to discuss any other arrangements.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My beliefs and approach can be summarised in the following statement:

"If you don't learn how I teach, I will teach how you learn". Before teaching I will assess likes/dislikes and strengths/areas for development. The focus is on the individual pupil or student.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 25 years of experience teaching and assessing in schools and further education. I work with a variety of ages. I am also an experienced assessor of exam access arrangements.

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

I have a full up-to-date DBS.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I belong to the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (PATOSS) and the Dyslexia Guild.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have worked with many adults who have learning support needs which have never been identified. 1/10 people nationally are estimated to be dyslexic. I am also working with primary school and lower secondary school children who have difficulties of a dyslexic or dyspraxic nature.

Melissa has given my son his confidence back. She has helped to support not just his dyslexia but everything associated with it. This has had a hugely positive impact on his progression academically as well as personally. She isn't just a tutor to my son, she is someone he trusts.

I have worked with Melissa Mansfield for many years and seen how much her students benefit from her commitment, experience and expertise. Melissa regularly updates her knowledge in the field of SpLD tutoring, to ensure that she can offer the most effective specialist support to her students. She is focused, hard working, perceptive and highly intelligent. Students respond well to her and make excellent progress and families feel supported. I recommend her services unreservedly.

This letter is our personal recommendation for Mrs Mansfield who has worked as a Special Learning Difficulties tutor for our two dyslexic children, a boy and a girl, aged 13 and 8.
We gladly recommend Melisa as special learning difficulties tutor based on the invigorating experience our son A has had with her and the sound progress he has attained.

Melisa tutored A between July 2015 and February 2018 and throughout this time, Melisa has been very supportive and caring.
