SEN specialist; Inspiring children, Achieving dreams!
I have recently graduated in Psychology with an Upper Second Class Honours and am currently working as a Specialist Support Teaching Assistant In a school for children with special needs and learning differences. I have experience of working in and out of the classroom and am dedicated to sharing my insight along with my knowledge in a variety of subjects: English, Mathematics and Art at Reception/ Primary level, and A-level Psychology. Furthermore, having studied Applied Child Psychology for a year as part of my degree and working in a specialist school means I have first hand experience with a range of SEN; such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, behavioural problems and emotional difficulties.
As a person I am patient, helpful and understanding with an optimistic attitude. Such qualities, along with my extensive interpersonal skills, academic record and experience will ensure I am able to meet each individual’s learning needs and any psychological affairs to help them develop and excel. I have a creative approach to learning and believe it is important to build rapport and communicate effectively to gain trust of my students to develop an understanding of their motivations and learning preferences. This will enhance my ability to implement a successful personalized learning approach towards each student.
I feel that one-to-one provides a safe comfortable space for an individual to maximize their potential, extend their learning and renew their self-confidence and drive to learn. It is my passion and pride to see today’s generation bloom and flourish, celebrate their achievements along the way and realize that making mistakes is acceptable and part of their learning journey.
If you feel that I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to get in touch.
