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.

As a Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Specialist Assessor I assess and diagnose Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, as well as supporting dyslexic and dyscalculic learners through one-one tuition using multisensory teaching methods. I am a qualified teacher and have spent a number of years working with many learners with Specific Learning Difficulties as well as learners with other Special Educational Needs. I have experience teaching KS1-KS4 learners and adult learners in a private setting. My approach to teaching, learning and assessing is student centred and holistic. I always have my student’s interests at the forefront.

I am an experienced dyslexia and dyscalculia Teacher and Assessor. My background is in Primary Teaching and for several years I taught the whole primary age range. I retrained as a dyslexia specialist in 2010 and following that later as a dyscalculia specialist- initially to be able to further support individuals within my classroom and also my own children.

In 2012 I founded the Dyslexia Centre North West, where we offer support, specialist assessments and tuition across all age ranges. We work with ESENDI which is our school based and FE/HE service and team of Specialist Teachers, Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Sensory Specialists and Pupil counsellors.

Our service offers online learning and accredited dyslexia and dyscalculia courses for professionals at dyslexia-academy.co.uk

Hello! My name is Jenny Aguilar; I am a certified educational therapist and an active member of the Association of Educational Therapists. My small practice specializes in supporting students first to college-aged students with dyscalculia, ADHD, and written expression challenges. I have a Masters degree in Education and teaching credential from Pepperdine University and an educational therapy certificate from the University of California, Riverside. Before becoming an educational therapist, I was a 4th and 6th-grade math/science classroom teacher for seven years. I teach students about the science of learning, their cognitive profile, and use a strength-based approach to cultivate skills and bolster their self-confidence. To learn about the learner’s cognitive profile, I read over a comprehensive neuropsychologist report, if they have one, meet with parents, teachers, and other allied professionals, and then assess students formally and informally. In addition to gathering objective data about skills and discovering misconceptions from the assessments, the information gathered helps me establish and prioritize treatment goals and select the appropriate methodologies. Upon gathering information and understanding the child’s learning challenges, I plan specialized strategies that are responsive to their learning needs and strengths and improve their academics and self-confidence.
