Experience, training and skills

I have 4 years’ experience as an ABA tutor.  I completed my initial ABA training at TreeHouse School, after graduating with a 1st class degree in Psychology with Child and Language Development from Bangor University.  I worked at TreeHouse School for 3 and a half years, with children between the ages of 5-19, helping them to access individualised education plans.   In that time I was able to develop from a Trainee Tutor, attending regular training on basic principles of ABA, to a Senior Tutor, supporting the class lead to manage the class, staff, and facilitating training for new tutors.

Since January I have been working with autistic children aged 4-9, as an LSA in a mainstream primary school, and also working as an ABA tutor with children in their homes and nursery settings.  This has given me the opportunity to apply the principles of ABA in more flexible, creative ways to meet the needs of each individual, adapting to each environment.

My Teaching Philosophy

All children deserve a good quality education, in whatever format and setting works for them. Children should be able to learn in a way that is interesting and enjoyable to them, even if that means approaching things a little differently. I have a positive approach to teaching, and am committed to promoting skills to give children confidence, independence and a voice.

Choose me if…

You would like someone creative and passionate to help your child access enjoyable learning in the way that suits them best.

Something sensational about me

I love to have a creative project on the go, and particularly enjoy crochet and sewing.  I like weekends in the countryside and walks on the beach, and am currently enjoying planning my wedding.
