I offer specialist tuition outside of school hours for learners with dyslexia as well as those who have not been formally diagnosed but identified as having difficulties with: reading, spelling and writing; retaining auditory and visual information;
concentrating and maintaining
attention or performing gross- and fine-motor activities.
I carry out a range of assessments to profile learners' strengths and weaknesses, track their progress and highlight areas which might need further investigation. The results of assessments can then be used to develop effective
interventions for learning and behaviour, close the achievement gaps and provide evidence of a need to support learning in school and at home.
HOW I WORK
My approach to teaching and learning was born out of a deep belief that talent, ability and intelligence in our children are open to change and growth.
By placing my students' strengths at the centre of their learning experiences, I strive not only to improve their educational outcomes but, more importantly, the way they think and feel about themselves and their future.
