I have worked at a school for 12 years. I enjoy working with all students especially students having special educational needs especially ASD and ADD. I prefer to treat each student according to their individual needs and by identifying what style of learning works best for them and using this to assist with their learning. Encouragement and praise have really benefited all of the students I have worked with and helped raise their levels significantly.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I always tailor a tutoring session with the needs of the student in mind. I like to find out which teaching style works best for the student. Some students learn better visually where as other children learn better by listening. For children who are autistic or have concentration difficulties, then I like to link learning up to their interests or obsessions.

What qualifications do you have?

BA (Hons) Open My degree incorporates history, sociology and politics BTec National Diploma in Nursery Nursing (equivalent to 3 A-Levels) Maths GCSE Higher core level Science GCSE English language GCSE English literature GCSE

Tell us about your experience...

I worked a primary school for 12 years as a teaching assistant. I worked with children of all abilities and got immense satisfaction working with children with special needs. Having two ASD sons myself it gave me a huge insight to experiencing special needs education on a personal and professional viewpoint and I feel this was beneficial in my career. I also took lessons and made lesson plans.

What locations do you tutor in?

Crayford, Dartford or online.

What is your personal message to students?

Be proud of your achievements. Everyone has a special talent and it is important to believe in yourself even when things get challenging.
