I provide assessment and bespoke specialist teaching for school-age students with maths difficulties. The focus of my work is to help pupils to build their self-esteem, and to develop a learning strategy that uses their individual areas of strength to support areas they find more challenging.
My professional teaching career has spanned two decades, initially as class teacher and maths subject lead. I was the author of books for the Folens Maths Scheme, including the manuals for struggling students in years 5 and 6. I understand the demands of teaching a class of 30+ children, each with differing strengths and difficulties.
After having children, I began my training in the field of dyslexia and supporting students with specific learning difficulties, but teaching maths has always been my first passion. I have worked as a specialist teacher/assessor both in school and privately. In addition, I can provide training and guidance for parents, teachers and support staff.
I am currently continuing my studies, with a long term goal of getting an MA in dyscalculia.
