In-school Support

All students are unique and sometimes it can be difficult to accommodate their individual learning needs in a mainstream classroom, particularly when specialist training is required for such support. Luckily, many schools welcome specialist teachers for tailored in-school tuition or in-class support to address areas of need.

If you feel that your child would benefit from tailored and solution-based in-class support or specialist tuition but their school’s resources are limited, I can deliver proven teaching programmes and help your child to engage in learning and access the most demanding curriculum in a range of effective ways.

 

Together we will:

  • Create multisensory learning opportunities

  • Address literacy challenges 

  • Learn how to set one’s own study goals 

  • Understand the most useful learning strategies

  • Develop competence and love for learning 

  • Cultivate growth mindset, persistence and perseverance

Individualised Learning

The best way to address learning challenges is to take a course of flexible and customized sessions from a qualified and experienced educational specialist. Every learner's needs are unique and many aspects of their environment need to be taken into consideration when designing an individualised program. 

As a rule, each program is set up following consultations with parents and where necessary with teachers, and is based on observations, screening and identified goals for improvement. You will be guided through to completion and offered post-program evaluation to see what progress has been made. 

   

 

   

About tuition: 

  • Students are taught either 1:1 or 2:1 basis 

  • Sessions are usually an hour long 

  • It is not essential to have a formal diagnosis or assessment prior to starting tuition 

  • Each learner has a program tailored to their unique needs even if it is a shared session 

  • Programs can be set up at your home, in my office or online

Assessment

It is not always necessary to wait for an assessment before starting to take action, but it is a useful tool which gives teachers, parents and other professionals working with a child an understanding of different factors which may affect their progress.

Evaluation helps to highlight strengths and challenges, individual styles of learning and it also informs professional decisions about what educational, behavioural or developmental intervention will be appropriate.
