Experience, training and skills

I qualified as a Teacher in Poland and England. I have worked in Poland until 1991 and after that in several Primary Schools in England both as a Class Teacher and Inclusion Teacher. I have taken a Postgraduate Course in Specific learning Difficulties in Poland as well as completing several courses with British Dyslexia.

My specialism is working with pupils aged 5 to 11, especially to support children in their reading and writing. I have experience working with children to unlock their potential, which includes those with receptive language problems. In previous roles, I carried out teacher assessments to determine whether the child was dyslexic or not. I developed a dyslexia unit to assess the problems of the children at an individual level. I identified appropriate resources from the Internet, books or from courses, and used them daily to improve the children’s learning. I was able to maximise the children’s learning opportunities in the available time that I had. By working alongside classroom teachers and the Inclusion Manager, I adapted my teaching activities so that the children were able to learn more and feel that they were achieving. Furthermore, I led a program to assist children and their families because I understood that it was important to increase parents’ or guardians’ awareness of the problems and implications associated with Special Needs. I can find and prepare fun and interesting resources, teach techniques which suits children learning style and cover materials in as many ways as are needed until your child understands

Children struggle when they try to learn in ways that aren’t natural for them. Remember there is never “one” right way or “only” way to teach or help your children with their homework.

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe that children learn in different ways and all have the potential to succeed. To gain a better understanding of how your child learns I will consider the four broad areas of preferred learning styles.
• Visual learners best remember what is seen. These children tend to remember faces instead of names, are good readers and have good imaginations.
• Auditory learners best remember what is heard. These youngsters remember names well, respond easily to phonics instruction and may like to talk when writing.
• Kinesthetic learners learn best by doing, experimenting and involvement. These learners remember what was done, not necessarily what was seen or heard, and might have difficulty paying attention and staying focused on their schoolwork or homework.
• Tactile learners like to use their hands and fingers to learn. These children learn best by writing, drawing, doodling and tend to be creative.
