Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a life long learner myself and love gaining knowledge and skills. Having tried different ways of learning, I'm able to provide guidance on what might work best for my students. I love being creative and enjoy crafting and art as well as finding new ways to help students be the best they can be.

What do you specialise in?

Maths and English, study skills, exam strategies and mental well being are my areas of strength. I have worked as a special educational needs coordinator for 15 years and am passionate about helping those with dyslexia, dyscalculia, ASD or ADHD. As part of my role I have worked with gifted and talented students to stretch and challenge.

How do your lessons usually plan out?

Target setting is key - I love SMART targets. I always start with a fun warm up to get the neurons firing. I then briefly recap the main points from the previous lesson and consolidate anything that the student is still unsure about. I then look at our next target and spend some time working on this, followed by a time for the student to try something independently while I am available to help before setting brief optional homework extension tasks. I end by reflecting with the student on what has worked well that session and 'even better if...' and we decide on a target for the following week.

When did you first start tutoring?

I have been teaching for 33 years and tutoring for the last 17 years. I did a lot of tutoring to students learning from home over lock down!!

She was polite and had a lot of patience. I liked her teaching style and structure. She was listening and once I completed she highlighted my mistake and explained the reason. overall I enjoyed my session with her.
