Qualified and experienced phonics and literacy teacher teaching synthetic phonics with 20 years working as a teacher trainer.

Methodology

I use synthetic phonics for both children, adolescents and adults and adapt the content and pace to suit individual student needs. I specialise in helping those that cannot access the curriculum with learning support strategies.

Background

I have taught phonics and literacy for 20 years in an international setting. I am now in the UK teaching ESOL to adults and young people. My students learn to read through a system of phonics and literacy enhancing strategies which have proved extremely successful.
