About the lesson

I'm here to build your child's confidence and skills in English.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Structured spelling course
Touch typing (great for dyslexic learners, child-friendly course)
I am autism-friendly and PDA-friendly.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am qualified to design and deliver tailored teaching programmes to those experiencing literacy difficulties, including dyslexia. The methods used are equally effective for those who would like rigorous support with literacy difficulties.

I have two qualifications at Master's level. I received a merit for my Post Graduate Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia teaching and assessment qualification). In 2014 I was awarded a Post Graduate Certificate in Autism and Asperger Syndrome, for which I received full marks. I hold a BA (Hons) English Language and Literature 2:1 from UCE (now Birmingham City University), and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (Secondary) English.

- How much do you charge?

Discounts on standard one hour lessons:
£5 discount for those in receipt of benefits.
£5 discount for home educated children.

I do not charge for holidays and illness.

- Where do you teach?

(Please note that I do not travel.)

Lessons take place in a dedicated room at the front of my house. Hartlebury is easily accessible from Kidderminster or Stourport-on-Severn. It is about twenty minutes from Worcester or Droitwich and half an hour from West or South Birmingham.

Parents may sit in on the lesson, or relax in the armchair in the hall if they wish to stay nearby.

Now booking for September.

Monday-Thursday lesson straight from school until 4pm (half lesson £15)
Monday -Thursday 4pm
Monday-Thursday 5pm

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I work with learners aged 6-16, some of whom have additional needs associated with dyslexia or autism.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I'm here to build your child's confidence and skill in English.

English does not have to be boring or painful: it can be fun!
