I have been tutoring and supporting learners in further and higher education for over 10 years and am passionate about helping students achieve their potential. My experience has shown me just what a difference one-to-one tutoring and specialist intervention can make. Not only have I seen the improvement in my students’ academic ability, but the difference to their self-esteem and confidence has been immeasurable.
I am highly experienced in providing academic writing and English language support to students in higher education. I have worked in three London universities and currently work with students in the east of England.
I am a Professional Member of the British Dyslexia Association, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a qualified English teacher.
My approach to teaching
When working with students my aim is to boost their confidence, and in turn their ability, through friendly, patient and creative tutoring. My lessons are tailored towards the individual strengths and talents of the learner and are designed to improve their writing and study skills, whilst also enabling them to become successful independent learners.
Throughout my experience and training I have gained an in-depth knowledge of both the neurological basis of dyslexia and the structured interventions which can be used to support learners. This knowledge enables me to use a blend of specialist teaching strategies and also helps students to understand and work with, rather than against, their dyslexia.
My tuition begins with an assessment of needs. Prior to our first session, I will request any diagnostic assessment reports you may have. This will enable me to gain an understanding of your unique dyslexic profile.
Together, we will discuss what you would like to achieve during our sessions. We will consider your strengths and areas for development and subsequently identify your learning goals. Based on this discussion, we will create a learning plan with clear objectives and review dates. Learning goals will give our sessions a clear focus and allow us to jointly evaluate your progress.
I hope to hear from you soon!
