Sharonne - Hemel Hempstead - School English

Methodology

Worried about your child's handwriting?!
I am a highly qualified Magic Link Teacher who provides face-to-face teaching. This 30 step programme is recommended by teachers, parents, SENcos, educational psychologists and occupational therapists.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am a handwriting specialist teacher/tutor for primary and secondary school-age children. I believe all pupils are capable of achieving neat, legible, joined-up handwriting and it is never too late to learn.
The Magic Link Handwriting Programme can help everyone, including pupils who are hypermobile, have dyspraxia, dyslexia, dysgraphia, Asperger's or those who are simply left-handed. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist with over 17 years of experience working with primary and secondary school children. I am a credited Magic Link teacher, inspired by my son who completed the programme. I am also a member of the National Handwriting association.

I am passionate about continuing my professional development and have had extensive and specialised training in a wide variety of areas including Thinking Maps, Evidence-Based Practice and Sensory Integration. I am passionate about teaching Magic Link handwriting due to the difference neat cursive handwriting makes to children's self-esteem, planning and thinking skills and their overall academic success.

- How much do you charge?

Initial consultation: This session, in a group, lasts slightly over 45 minutes and involves taking a handwriting sample then teaching the first steps of the Magic Link Handwriting Programme - £140.
This session allows time to discuss any issues or concerns as well as explanation about the programme and homework demonstration.
The unique Magic Link Handwriting workbooks, ergonomic pencil and Magic Link bag are included in the price of the first consultation.

Subsequent sessions - £40.00 per session.

Usually, a child will require between 10 -12 lessons to achieve neat, joined up, cursive handwriting.

- Where do you teach?

I work from my home in Hemel Hempstead.

- When are you available?

I am currently available on Sunday mornings between 9am-12pm.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

5 years to 18 years + (ie primary and secondary school ages). The only handwriting programme for Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5 and perfect for 7+, 11+, GCSE and A-level pupils.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

The Magic Link Handwriting Programme is a 30 step programme for primary and secondary school pupils. Good handwriting is essential for every day school work as well as for written examinations, including 7 plus, 11 plus, GCSE and A Level.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The Magic Link Handwriting Programme will teach pupils to have neat, fast and flowing joined- up, cursive handwriting. Neat handwriting is achieved in around 10-12 lessons by following the Magic Link Handwriting Programme. I teach neat, cursive, joined-up handwriting in 30 simple steps. This programme uses the simple Magic Link® font with no confusing lead-in, entry strokes. Your child's grades will improve as handwriting becomes neater and faster and self-confidence increases. Messy handwriting is not a sign of low intelligence!

The Magic Link method is recommended in The Telegraph
"After just two sessions, the improvement in their penmanship is startling." (Telegraph Journalist)

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for over 17 years and have been teaching primary and secondary school children.

I am married with two children. I saw with my own son how his writing was transformed with this simple 30 step structured programme. I am truly passionate about teaching Magic Link handwriting due to the difference neat cursive handwriting makes to children's self-esteem, planning and thinking skills and their overall academic success.

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

Yes. I have an up to date enhanced DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I was trained in North London by Lee Dein the creator of the Magic Link Programme. She herself also monitors all pupils' progress on the programme.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council ( H.C.P.C)
I am a member of the National Handwriting Association

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Students age range from 5 to 18 years old who have poor, messy handwriting. This affects confidence and exam results.
