I have worked in the SEN sector for 25 years both in the private and state education systems as well as tutoring in my own home. Over this time, I have enjoyed watching many students flourish and succeed, having risen to the learning challenges they face, for example, dyslexia, dyscalculia, speech and language issues, ASD and ADHD.
First of all, a student needs to feel comfortable in their learning environment. I aim to achieve this with an approachable, friendly and patient manner. Every student is warmly welcomed into my home which is a calm and caring environment.
After an initial assessment, an individual learning plan is drawn up to meet a student's specific needs. Many students lack self confidence, so I encourage them to believe in themselves and their ability to succeed. I ensure they experience success in every lesson. They are then keen to reproduce this time and time again. I truly believe in the saying Success Breeds Success! All my lessons are small step, cumulative and multisensory, with extensive use of resources including visual props and computer software.
A harmonious and productive partnership with parents is essential in helping a student achieve. Apart from thorough feedback, I encourage parents to reinforce any learning strategies with their child. However, when it comes to short homework assignments, I like to encourage students to complete it independently. This can be a really positive step for them, as often they have struggled with school homework and have needed ongoing adult support.
My relevant professional qualification is RSA Cert SpLD and I am a member of PATOSS. I am keen to keep pace with the latest research into Additional Education Needs and am forever seeking new and innovative teaching practices to help my students.
