Since I was eight years old I wanted to be a teacher for those who struggle with maths. Therefore, qualifying with a Post Graduate Certificate in Dyscalculia fulfilled my dreams.
As a dyslexic I have great empathy for students who face learning challenges and have learning anxiety.
I have a PGCE (Maths) and have taught maths in mainstream secondary schools as well as at a specialist college for the deaf and to adults.
It is interesting to consider that I have now qualified in a field that did not exist when I started maths teaching. I am now qualified to plan specific structured teaching for those who are dyscalculic or struggle with maths.
Specialist multi-sensory tutoring of this nature is best delivered face to face as hands-on, fun, tailored sessions are an important element of effective understanding. However, on-line options are also available.
My aim is to equip students to tackle the challenges they face, have the self confidence to overcome them and to achieve their potential.

Testimonial from a client
I came to Jane with a mental block around maths on top of finding maths very tricky. For years I have been struggling with maths but managed. I applied for course that requires me to have a grade C or above in Maths. I was very hesitant at first but have found my confidence week on week. Jane gives me the space and the time to learn and ‘build a relationship with maths’ by brining context to what I am learning by applying it to my life. As well as creating context for what I am learning I am working towards my grade! I used to feel as though there was a ‘club’, where some people got maths and I just wasn’t one of them. She has taught me that I can do it by showing me how she works it out it! She has taken away the mystery and shown me that some times it is just a bit hard. And there are the things to can do to get to your answer! Most importantly for me Jane gives me time if I am struggling mentally with maths. By talking to me, we take down the maths barrier and then Jane reminds me that we have to carry on! So on top of getting over a mental barrier I learn and improve. I still find it tricky but the point is most people do! I am getting there! I will have an understanding of maths to pass an exam as well as having an understanding that I can use for the rest of my life! Thank you Jane! Eve, adult learner
