Specific areas of difficulty are identified in both English and Mathematical skills. These areas are targeted resulting in improvements available for year 1 to year 7.

Methodology

I understand how a pupil's self esteem can fall and motivation to learn can diminish, when difficulties are experienced. This is overcome by allowing a child to achieve success and ultimately empower a pupil to learn independently. Lessons are prepared around the individual's difficulties being experienced and include activities which are varied and enjoyable. Close contact with the parent and with the class teacher (if possible) is made.

Tuition focuses on improving reading and comprehension skills, extending vocabulary and calculations and numerical reading in mathematics.

Background

I am a highly qualified, specialist teacher and have more than 30 years experience assisting children who have difficulty learning any aspect in their academic subjects. The vast number of pupils under my tutorage have improved significantly with some achieving the highest accolades. I have taught a class, individuals and small groups. My aim is to encourage each individual to achieve the potential of which they are capable.
