- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have completed a Masters in Working in Education - A Psychoanalytic Observational Approach at the renowned Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation.
I have learned the relevance of psychoanalytic theories to understand the emotional factors that hinder learning for pupils with SEN.
I am currently completing a Professional Doctorate in Advanced Practice and Research: Social Work and Social Care at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation. The doctorate centres on psychoanalytical approaches in understanding the emotional demands and complexities for both the professional and the students with SEN. I am able to grasp working with students with SEN and understand psychoanalytical theories to help the pupil academically, emotionally and socially. I am familiar with clinical observations, attachment theory, projection, containment, anxiety and working with challenging pupils. Which has empowered me to understand the student's needs during important periods of their life and create effective interventions to support them.
My qualified teaching status has prepared me to follow a good teaching practice. I quality assure work and differentiate resources for SEN students. I focus on personalised academic and pastoral interventions for pupils with the objective to support the student to make progress. Teaching draws from creativity which I'm able to develop through imaginative lessons with clear learner outcomes and have high expectations of resources that I produce for my lessons.

I am available to tutor: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and weekends.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I can teach English in key 2, 3 and 4 for students with SEN. I take a personalised centred approach on assessing the needs of the pupil by creating interventions that will overlap with social skills, anger management, ASD, self-esteem or any intervention that will support the academic and emotional progress of the pupil.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I offer 1:1 and group tutoring online using the Scribbler software which enables me to upload personalised resources for the student. Alongside working with the pupil I also book sessions with parents to discuss strategies and give advice on Education Health Care Plan applications.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have worked in diverse settings such as a special needs school, behaviour unit and mainstream schools. I believe that in order to support pupils with SEN this requires creativity, knowledge of the diagnosis and the wider influences of the pupil's life. I currently work with students with autism (ASD), pupils with ADHD/ODD, dyslexia, undiagnosed SEN, emotional behaviour difficulties (EBD), moderate learning difficulties (MLD), speech and language and attachment disorder.
I am currently working as a SEN specialist teacher. I work with pupils from primary and secondary schools. My work consists of 1:1 teaching and observing the pupil in the classroom setting. I also work with the family and create effective strategies for the teacher and pupil to use. I work very closely with external agencies such as an educational psychologist, occupational therapists, child, and adult mental health service (CAMHS) and social workers in monitoring the pupil's SEN during Annual reviews. Alongside the academic aspect of my role, I also monitor students with SEN (education health care plan) that are home educated. I create resources and meet with the families to discuss the pupil's development.
