How do your lessons usually plan out?

My teaching style is structured and thorough. I start every lesson with a five-minute recap of the key content of the previous session, checking how much the tutee remembers. I am passionate about project-based learning where I use a variety of approaches and strategies to support student learning. Business studies involves both theory and application. I ensure every student understands the theory and is then able to apply the theory to practice. Where appropriate I use technology to aid and enhance the learning experience. This includes quizzes, videos and case studies. I regularly assess my students to check their understanding of concepts, models and theories.

What do you specialise in?

I am very experienced teaching children with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia, processing issues, dyspraxia and sensory processing difficulties. I will tailor a programme to suit an individual student's requirements and design visual timetables and implement sensory plans when required. I have experience in Assessments, Homeschool advisory service and Teaching and tutoring.

When did you first start tutoring?

I have been a tutor since 2012 and have now clocked up thousands of hours' experience teaching in schools, colleges and as an online private tutor and mentor.
