Location: Kent

As a trained specialist teacher I am able to assess and diagnose dyscalculia.  I also offer one to one and group tuition for age ranges 7-18.  My specific qualification is a  Post Graduate Diploma (Dyscalculia) and I am an Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA). I am an educational professional with many years experience. My career has been spent most in secondary school teaching focusing on students with maths difficulties.  However I am a primary school governor with a focus on teaching and learning.

My current teaching role is as a Lead Maths Practitioner for a multi academy trust. This involves training staff and developing teaching strategies for a range of mathematical abilities. I  run INSET training at schools and have spoken at events to enhance that awareness of Dyscalculia and other mathematical difficulties.

As part of my practice I follow a multi sensory approach to teaching. Intervention involves identifying  a goal and following a structured approach using prior student knowledge to achieve positive outcomes.  As part of the learning both the student and myself evaluate the success of our efforts.

Thank you for taking the time to read my biography and I look forward to hearing from you.

I am a qualified teacher who specialises in teaching children and adults who find maths especially difficult.

I aim for my lessons to be challenging yet enjoyable, using a variety of hands-on equipment, games and resources that develop greater understanding of the concepts that underpin maths and help to alleviate the anxiety that often comes hand-in-hand with more traditional teaching methods.

I work alongside my students to develop a highly individualised programme of support, building on their confidence with carefully planned incremental steps towards their personal goals.
