I`ve been teaching for over 25 years and am married with a daughter who is 24. In my spare time I like to walk, read, knit and decorate my home. I have also just started learning to play the piano.

I have a current up-to-date DBS certificate, which you can view online.

Tutoring experience

I am particularly skilled and have a lot of experience working with children who have special needs. I suppose my specialism is in Literacy as I worked as Literacy subject leader for over ten years, but I am able to teach Numeracy and the rest of the primary curriculum. I have a B.Ed. honours degree and am fully Sounds-Write (a pure phonics program) trained. In the past I have worked with all primary school year groups, including nursery aged children.

Approach to tutoring

I have a lot of patience and especially enjoy working on a 1:1 basis with children. I also like a challenge and am used to creating my own materials, to help tailor work to a particular child`s needs. I am firm but fair in my approach and like to think that I make lessons both enjoyable and worthwhile.
