Some Easter or summer holidays on request.

I understand well how challenging reading and spelling can be. I am able to build a rapport quickly with students and establish a welcoming and calm environment in which they can feel safe to make mistakes and experience success. Regular 1:1 sessions, away from the classroom, can help break down barriers to learning and enhance self-esteem.
