I teach literacy and numeracy to primary school children who are having difficulties in these areas.
Price and Range:
£25/hour, or £240 for a 10 lesson block to be paid in advance.
Through my own observations as a teacher for over ten years, and seeing my own son suffer with learning difficulties, I know how isolated, helpless, frustrated and lost children can feel when they are in a class where everyone else seems to be understanding and moving forward. I want to help students feel better about themselves and to make progress in their learning.
Five years in Early Years teaching has given me first- hand experience of how children develop reading and numeracy and the sorts of activities that teach and consolidate their skills. A Masters degree has given me knowledge and insight into learning difficulties and teaching methods; whilst two years teaching in a Learning Support department has given me the opportunity to successfully plan and deliver lessons to help children with literacy and numeracy difficulties to progress.
My first approach is to find the student's current level of knowledge and understanding. From this point I can design a programme of work to build up their knowledge, concepts and skills, step by step. To develop literacy, I begin with using phonics and spelling games, in conjunction with developing their composition and comprehension skills with activities and books from popular reading schemes that maintain progression. In numeracy topics I use practical activities at first, to build up understanding step by step before moving into abstract work.
