Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (Additional Learning Needs).
As a qualified Specialist Dyslexia Tutor, I am able to provide informal and standardised assessments that will help outline strengths and weakness in key areas of learning and recommendations for practise.
I am trained to plan and deliver a specialised programme of work for those experiencing literacy and numeracy difficulties. It is multi-sensory, structured, and tailored programme which provides a platform to facilitate an individuals learning needs, style and preference.

I hold Approved Practitioner Status (APS) and a current Practising Certificate (APC) with the British Dyslexia Association.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have enjoyed being part of the education 'establishment' for the past 30 years, where I have gained teaching experience of all age groups and specialised within the SEN area of education. I have worked with both primary and secondary schools, developing staff knowledge of foundation skills and cognitive processing in learners to determine teaching strategies.
Currently I work part of the week at a primary school where my main focus is through delivering SEN intervention programmes and the development of skills required to progress across all subjects through dyslexic friendly teaching methods.
How much do you charge?
No charge for the first consultation session.
Rates as shown
Additional charge for standardised assessments - price depending on assessment need for individual.
Where do you teach?
I am happy to travel within a 15 mile radius from my home (Lichfield, Stafford, Walsall, Rugeley, Hednesford, Burntwood, Great Haywood).
I will also receive students at my home address (located between junctions 11/12 of the M6).
When are you available?
Please contact me to make arrangement for suitable times and days.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I specialise in tutoring learners from 4 -16 years with literacy difficulties (dyslexia) and maths difficulties, but also have experience with teaching mature learners how to develop basic reading, writing and mathematical skills.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes (CRB).
Do you have a personal message for students?
If at first you don't succeed, then let me help you find another way.
