My teaching methods cover all areas of learning, to suit the students preferred style learning style: Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic (VAK). By adapting my methodology I am able to differentiate each lesson I deliver, which in turn allows to student(s) to reach their full potential.
I have an Honours Degree in Education and I am in the early stages of studying a Master in Education. I have over 2 decades of experience working alongside children of all ages, and have extensive knowledge of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The aforementioned experience and knowledge allows me to tutor and mentor children of all abilities, throughout life and education. Alongside the student and education aspect, I also use my specialist knowledge to guide and educate families with their own knowledge of SEND.
