About Me

RELIABLE, EXPERT and NURTURING Private Tuition in English and Maths (aged 6 -16 yrs) - first lesson FREE! I have taught English and Maths in mainstream and special schools, where I have delivered small group interventions, allowing me to develop a secure knowledge of the curriculum content for both these subjects at key stage 2, 3 and GCSE (foundation) level. I've also worked creatively with pupils, delivering art and craft projects to assist with personal and social development.

I'm also an experienced SENCO, and possess vast amounts of experience nurturing, engaging and enthusing children and young people with a range of abilities and needs within secondary and primary (KS2) schools. I specialise in nurturing and teaching English and Maths to pupils with MLD, Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism, Dyspraxia and other learning difficulties, so I have lots of patience, creativity, resilience and ideas to assist the engagement, progress and well being of all ages and personalities!

I'm also passionate about arts and culture, and regularly attend exhibitions, theatre and cinema. I also massively appreciate the natural environment and take regular walks in the countryside and brave camping EVERY summer!

*KS2 SATs Booster - Literacy

...and lots, lots more!

My Experience

Primarily, I am a mother of two children aged 12 and 14, which has equipped me with an secure understanding of the social, emotional, mental health and learning needs of children and young people.

I have 20 years of educational experience in both mainstream and special schools, and bundles of knowledge, inspiration, energy and strategies to assist your family's care and learning needs. I have taught English and Maths in mainstream and special schools, where I have developed a secure knowledge of the curriculum from key stage 2 up to GCSE in both subjects. I've also worked creatively with pupils, delivering art and craft projects to assist with personal and social development, whilst also delivering GCSE Art and Design.

My vast and diverse experience has equipped me with up to date knowledge of teaching styles, and a variety of nurturing strategies that are suitable for mainstream pupils who need additional encouragement, and in particular those with special educational needs.

I also have a working knowledge of literacy schemes, such as Fresh Start, Catch-Up Reading, Toe by Toe, Alpha to Omega and other strategies, which I've used to support the accelerated progress of pupils who have fallen behind or those who have wanted to get ahead!!

I am also a Special Assessor for Access Arrangements, and am able to assess the educational needs of children and young adults. I also specialize in providing tailored English/literacy, Maths/numeracy tuition to meet the individual needs of every child, with a focus on key stage 2 and 3 schemes. As already stated, I also have a vast experience of teaching GCSE English and Maths, as this has been a teaching requirement in some of my schools.

I hold an up to date DBS check.
