Give your child the extra one-to-one support they need!

I've been involved in teaching for over 20 years, as a primary school teacher in both the independent and state sectors.

Ease in communication, mutual respect and trust, and a good dose of humour are vitally important, whomever I tutor, as I believe that if the student is comfortable with the teacher, they will be both relaxed and focussed; this enables the brain cells to do the tricky stuff without going into panic mode! Motivation and achievement will be so much the better for being nurtured in a supportive environment.

In the last 4 years I have supported tuition pupils with maths and English, and in preparation for the 11+ including verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning, with great results. I've also done this with my classes at my last teaching post as well as offering a broad and balanced education as of course required by the Primary School setting. I'm qualified as Special Needs Co-ordinator as well, and have worked with children with a range of additional needs.

I always work initially with parents to establish exactly what their objectives are from the tuition sessions. I also establish a baseline during the first session to enable me to know where the pupil is at and where they need to go next. I can then put a customised, individualised programme in place to ensure appropriate stepping stones are there to help the pupil achieve at their best. I can set homework / practice to keep skills fresh between sessions if it will be beneficial and if parents agree.

I love teaching drawing to children too, so if your child has a passion to be better at this, or struggles to record visual information, I can help with this too. It's a real confidence builder and lots of fun.

I've also taught adults - I'm a Reiki healing and meditation teacher as well! Please send me a message if you'd like to know more - I have Reiki classes at all levels in North Kent for 2016.
