About Me

I am a Dyslexia Specialist and fully qualified teacher with over 20 years experience and author of English and math book: The Bumper Book of Double Learning. I specialise in 11 Plus and GCSE tuition, English Language & Literacy, Maths, Music and Art. I use a multi-sensory (visual, auditory and kinesthetic) approach, which includes specific reading and spelling programmes when appropriate. Lessons are designed to first fill any learning gaps and then help students to reach their fullpotential whilst also encouraging independent learning. Students are prepared for relevant exams including Common Entrance, 11 plus, GCSE, AS and A level.

I provide private Tuition for English and Maths at all levels, specialising in 11 Plus (including Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning) and GCSE. Lessons have been conducted very successfully online since March due to Covid. Students respond very well as they enjoy the face to face interaction and opportunity to use technology. We speak via Skype, FaceTime, Whatsapp and Zoom using a second device such as iPad or laptop. Homework is sent via email.

Tutor Experience

My last 4 lesson observations were graded as outstanding Grade 1 by Ofsted. I teach reading, writing, spelling and speaking/listening skills to those with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and to those whose English is a second language. I prepare students for exams to ensure a higher grade. I also work as Dyslexia Coordinator in a college providing one to one support to those with specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Aspergers & ADHD. I can provide excellent references from colleges, previous students and their parents. I have also worked at the following institutes: Baylis Secondary School, Slough, Lady Bankes Junior School, Ruislip, Harrow College, Uxbridge College, Barnet College, Hillingdon Adult Education Centre, Kenton Family Learning Centre, Stanmore College, Weald College, West Herts College and for Harrow Borough Council as a Tutor Inspector for Ofsted grading.
