- Personal Message
- If you are worried about your child's progress at school, do something about it!. Come to meet me, with your child, talk about your concerns and I will explain how I can help.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
- I teach primary maths, literacy and science and I specialise in teaching dyslexic and dyscalculic pupils who are finding it difficult to progress in a class situation.
Many of my pupils experience difficulties in learning because they have poor working memories, so from the end of October I will be offering "Cogmed" working memory training to help pupils develop the tools they need for learning. Cogmed is a programme, based on strong scientific research, that improves attention and the ability to focus and follow instructions, as well as improving reading comprehension and listening skills. Research shows that it works with 8 of 10 people with poor working memories.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
- I have a basic teaching certificate, a Certificate in Early Childhood Education, an Advanced Diploma in Applied Educational Studies, a Master of Education Degree and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Dyslexia and Literacy. I was awarded Approved Teacher of the British Dyslexia Association status in 2006.
I believe continual professional development is important and I attend courses and Dyslexia Guild conferences to keep me updated with current research findings and good practice. I have successfully completed a course for the Certificate in Competence in Educational Testing, Accredited by the British Psychological Society and I am now registered with The British Psychological Society as a Test User: Educational, Ability/Attainment.
- What kind of experience do you have?
- I originally taught science and maths in secondary schools and then converted to teaching in primary schools. I taught in both state and independent schools. The last school I taught in (for five years), was Chapter House, Queen Ethelburga's College. I then trained to teach dyslexic pupils individually and in 2006 was awarded British Dyslexia Association Approved Teacher Status.
Since then I have taught numerous pupils on the dyslexia spectrum - some with severe difficulties and some with only minor problems. Frequently I find that pupils that come to me for help, have poor working memory which affects their ability to learn, so I have trained as a Cogmed coach and offer online working memory training.
- How much do you charge?
- £38 per hour for individual tuition for primary pupils, secondary pupils and adults. The initial interview with trial lesson is free. My fees reflect my specialist training, the high cost of Continuous Professional Development, - keeping myself up to date by attending courses and conferences - and membership fees of professional bodies.
£320 for a 5 week Cogmed working memory course and coaching - consisting of 25 days training.
- Where do you teach?
- I teach at my house. There is good parking and a room adjacent to the teaching room, where parents may wait during the lesson if they wish. Some parents choose to leave their child and go to nearby Monk's Cross.
- When are you available?
- I teach Monday to Saturday. Fees are only paid for lessons taken and if a child is absent through illness or holidays there is no charge.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
- I usually teach from ages six to sixteen, but I also teach adults.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
- Many parents come to me when their children are nearing the end of their time at primary school, as they are aware that once they are at secondary school children have less time to spend on the basics of literacy. If the foundations of literacy are not securely in place by then, pupils will find it very difficult to work and progress in other subject areas. I encourage parents to start tuition with me early, by Year 3 or 4 if possible, and not to wait until Year 6.
I prepare children for Key Stage 2 maths SATS., and I have tutored children to enable them to pass entrance examinations into private schools.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- I have an up to date (January, 2012),Enhanced Disclosure which is available for parents to see.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
- For the Cogmed working memory training courses, pupils work on their own computer at home for all or most of the training. I follow their training online and communicate with them either by email, Skype, telephone or they can visit me for face to face help.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
- I am a member of the Dyslexia Guild and have Approved Teacher Status with the British Dyslexia Association, recently renewed by the submission of a CPD portfolio. I am registered with The British Psychological Society as a Competent Test User: Educational, Ability/Attainment.
- Where and with whom did you train?
- My dyslexia training was with the Dyslexia Institute which has now merged with Dyslexia Action.
My Master of Education degree was with The University of Leeds.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
- I currently teach some pupils with moderate dyslexia, some who have attention deficit and some who are only mildly dyslexic or have weakish working memories who have been working below their potential and need a bit of extra support to boost their confidence. At the moment I teach one child for a couple of hours during the school day, with permission from the school, but I teach most of my pupils after school or on Saturdays and through the holidays. I also has one left-handed pupil who is coming purely to improve his handwriting and several children with autistic tendencies.
I teach maths to quite a few children. Some have maths difficulties connected to dyslexia, some have poor working memories and some have dyscalculia. I work with the dyscalculic pupils to build up the basic concepts of numbers - initially so they can add and subtract numbers without thinking in ones and without counting on their fingers.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
- Dyslexia affects people irrespective of their general intelligence. In a classroom situation dyslexic children inevitably fall behind or, if very bright, perform adequately but fail to achieve their potential. With one to one tuition, using teaching methods developed by research psychologists, dyslexic pupils can reach a level of literacy that will allow them to be successful in whatever area they choose. On a personal level, my nephew was assessed as dyslexic by a psychologist when he was a child and yet went to Oxford University and gained a 2.1 in maths and my niece, who is also dyslexic, went to Cambridge University and is now a lawyer with a major law firm in London. My youngest son is dyslexic but gained a degree in digital music and now teaches music in a private, bilingual school in Chile and also plays in several bands there and manages his own stilt-walking band!.
