Following an earlier career in Public Relations that spanned 20 years, I trained to teach learners with Specific Learning Difficulties in 2014 and am a qualified OCR Level 5 teacher. I have held positions at Laidlaw Education in West London and as a Specialist Tutor at a large Prep School in West Sussex where I planned and delivered one-one lessons to Years 1 – 8 children (Jan 2016 – Nov 2017). From November 2017 (to present) I have been a specialist teacher at Emerson House, West London, working with pupils from Year 2 – Year 6 on Maths and Literacy. I also tutor privately. Each lesson plan is tailored to suit the learning style of that child, and I aim for the lessons to be multi-sensory with activities and resources that can be personalised to the interests or hobbies of the individual. Children learn best when they build a good rapport with their teacher, and become engaged in the subject. To this end, lessons aim to be interesting and enjoyable and address the specific learning needs. I consider myself to be enthusiastic, patient and kind, and hope to build each child’s confidence.
