Ellie Tuck

I qualified as a teacher with a BA (Hons) Degree in 2014, and after 3 years of teaching in a primary setting, I decided I wanted to specialise in SEN. I completed a Master's Degree in Dyslexia and SpLDs 2018 before working in a Secondary Independent Boarding School, teaching Year 9- Year 11, for 5 years as a 1:1 Learning Support Teacher. I realised that I wanted to advance my career further and completed a PGCert in Education (Dyscalculia) 2021. I am a holder of Dyslexia AMBDA and an Assessment Practising Certificate (BDA). I am looking forward to studying another Master's Degree in Psychology in September so that I can advance my knowledge of individual human differences and neurodiversity further.

It is my ultimate goal to facilitate the engagement and enjoyment of mathematics for students of all ages. Having completed my master's dissertation in Maths Anxiety, I have an astute understanding of this detrimental barrier to maths achievement, and it is my number one priority to remove the fear that some students experience. I am passionate about changing students' perceptions of mathematics and finding strategies to support their learning in order to accelerate progress.

I am excited to join the Dyscalculia Network to assess and support further learners with dyscalculia.

    Reference from a Professional - Pete Jarrett MA:ED PGDip (SpLD) AMBDA AMBDADyscalculia: Ellie was a student on the Level 7 module on Dyscalculia and Maths Learning Difficulties at Bath Spa University that I led. She took the module as part of her studies that led to her award of AMBDA. She subsequently completed the Edge Hill Dyscalculia Course. I have kept in contact with Ellie and consider her to be an excellent practitioner. She would be an asset to the Network in many ways.

  • Testimonial from a client

    Our son was a reluctant learner who had struggled in maths lessons at school. Ellie was brilliant making the maths sessions fun and tailoring her sessions to his way of learning. We had tried to help him ourselves and found it unbelievably stressful. To have Ellie take over and to see our son gain confidence, start to enjoy maths and look forward to the tutoring sessions was such a relief.
