11+ Maths, English (SEN)

I have previously worked with two students towards the 11+ assessments. Jasmine sat entry examinations for three schools, with all students going on to one of their preferred secondary/boarding school.

Jasmine, 11+ maths: Jasmine is severely dyscalculic, she struggled with her general maths skills (including time tables) and applying theory into practice. We steadily worked on building up her confidence, understanding, and exam technique. She was offered a place at Kew House.

Conrad, 11+ English: Conrad has dyslexia and found it difficult to extract and then implement information from the text in his writing. His focus, processing, and writing speed were low. We suggested typing sessions which-at completion- sharply improved his writing speed — we steadily built-in techniques for time-efficient reading and planning a correctly structured written response. As a result, he moved up a set within a term in Year 5.


GCSE English/Mathematics (SEN)
I have worked with several exam boards (Edexcel, AQA, WJEC) for GCSE/ Functional Skills/ AQA. I have helped many students move from 2/3/4 to 3/4/5/6. For students at the lower end of the grade, spectrum focus is on learning content and attaining a firm understanding as well as application.

Jawad, GCSE maths: Jawad found several areas of maths challenging. He was autistic, lacking full understanding, and doubted his ability. We worked through his knowledge gaps and tricky aspects of the topics to give him an excellent base to work. Then we moved on to more advanced work, which I made multi-sensory, fun and interactive, in line with his ASD profile. He moved from borderline 5/6 to a 7.

Saptieu GCSE English Language: Sap, in line with her ASC spectrum, struggled with expressing herself in writing. She wasn’t able to structure her text or make up a storyline that would reflect her ideas accurately. We worked on her planning skills as well as vocabulary and sentence structure to write coherent paragraphs. She also struggled with bringing adequate evidence to her analysis, so she learned the techniques to work with the text efficiently and embedding it into PEE paragraphs.

Revision planning:
On many occasions, I have helped several students to develop a revision schedule. Dependent on how close students are to their exams, the revision plan will either involve covering content and creating notes to attempting exam questions and developing understanding.

Archie, GCSE Revision and Study Skills: Archie was struggling to organise his time effectively when he started revising for his exams. I helped him prioritise his revision subject by subject and built a realistic revision timetable with him that he used throughout his study leave and exam period. We also worked on revision techniques and timed practice papers. This way, we helped him develop his organisational skills and ensured he felt confident going into his exams. Archie was offered a place at Harrodian.

SEN general support:
I have taught many individuals with dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, autism, speech and language difficulties as well as social and behavioural difficulties. Therefore, I experienced various behavioural manifestation specific to a student’s conditions.

Zak: Zak struggled with ADHD, lack of concentration, and found it very difficult to focus in class. I helped him with the organisation of his work, homework, and any bits of classwork he had not been able to finish. I made lessons as interactive as possible but stuck to a clear routine, including breaks, so he felt confident each time we had a session.

My Teaching Philosophy

Having a passion for supporting less able students and for continuously developing myself, I know that with the right teaching, specific barriers to learning can be sufficiently addressed or removed. Having experienced the impact of personalised one-to-one tutoring myself, I have seen the many positives the system can bring. I also had a chance to implement the strategies observed in a range of London schools, both mainstream and independent. I strive to embed a wide range of approaches by using and enriching many highly acclaimed and tested SEN teaching strategies. It is vital that the needs of each student are carefully assessed, whether formally and informally, and that the teaching is tailored to their profile. Regardless of the level taught, it is impossible to make real progress unless the student first has engagement and interest in the subject. I see my task as a tutor as a mixture of differentiating and invigorating the material for those studying.

Something Sensational About Me

My true passions are in supporting vulnerable people and I am interested in environmental issues and supporting ethnic minorities, e. g. EAL families; a keen traveller,
