Personal Message
Everyone learns at their own pace. I aim to tailor my support to produce the highest results possible and improve learners' academic self-confidence and esteem, in order to help those at risk of dyslexia catch up, or get ahead.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
Primary Literacy and Numeracy skills (i.e. for Key Stages 1 & 2), including synthetic phonics, using multisensory, structured intervention programmes that are dyslexia-friendly.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a primary trained, experienced dyslexia specialist teacher/ assessor. I have a BA (Hons) degree in English & Biblical Studies and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Primary). I also have a Level 7 Postgraduate Diploma In Teaching & Assessing Students with Specific Learning Difficulties/ Dyslexia and AMBDA status.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have several years experience of teaching the Primary National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in mainstream schools, as well as experience of delivering private tuition in reading, writing and spelling (including phonics) using multisensory, structured, literacy intervention programmes. In the past, I have supported adults and young people with learning difficulties and disabilities and have worked in FE as an Additional Learning Support Instructor, with responsibility for screening and assessing students at risk of Specific Learning Difficulties/ Dyslexia for access arrangements in public exams.
How much do you charge?
I charge £35 per hour for 1 to 1 specialist tuition (plus mileage outside my local area). Please note that a deposit equivalent to the cost of a one hour lesson is required to secure a regular appointment or block booking, which is returnable at the end of the teaching programme (subject to terms and conditions). A minimum of 48 hours' notice of cancellation is required.
Where do you teach?
I'm based in Thorne near Doncaster and offer private one to one tuition in pupils' own homes. Subject to reasonable travel expenses, I am able to travel to Doncaster, Bawtry, Auckley, Rossington, Tickhill, Ranskill, Goole, Epworth, Haxey, Westwoodside and Misterton.

Please note: Due to current availability, private tuition in your own home is really only viable if you live within 20 miles of Thorne, Doncaster. Please check distance before submitting your enquiry. Thank you.
When are you available?
During term time, I offer private tuition after school between 3.30 pm and 7.30 pm from Monday to Thursday. I am also sometimes available to existing clients during school holidays, subject to negotiation. Due to current demand, I have limited availabilty after school (Summer 2018) but I am happy to take new clients' details and keep a waiting list in case a vacant time slot becomes available in the near future. Please contact me for an update on current availability.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I offer dyslexia-friendly, structured literacy intervention in reading, writing and spelling (using synthetic phonics) and primary maths interventions to pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2 (ages 6 to 11), as well as Year 6 SATs revision in Literacy and Numeracy.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
KS2 SATs in Literacy and Numeracy to Year 6 students (age 11).
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a portable DBS certificate, updated in May 2018.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a member of the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (PATOSS).
Where and with whom did you train?
I gained my teaching qualification at Anglia Polytechnic University in Essex and my specialist teacher/assessor qualification at the University of Leicester.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Many of my students have previously undergone diagnostic assessment and been given a formal diagnosis of a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) such as Dyslexia. Others have simply been identified at school as 'at risk'. Parents often come to me for help when they are unable to secure the kind of support they know their child needs in school, in order for them to make progress. However all learners can benefit from dyslexia-friendly teaching that is structured, cumulative and multisensory, so a formal diagnosis of a Specific Learning Difficulty is not always necessary.
