I have experience in teaching students with a range of special educational needs such as ADHD, Dyscalculia, Autism, Dyslexia and SEBD. My current role involves working with students with moderate learning and behaviour difficulties including autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, global developmental delay and defiant oppositional disorder. In addition, I also have experience in entrance examinations preparations for the 13+ and GCSE for both private students as well as looked after children. My teaching activities involve the use of resources which provide tailored differentiated tasks that motivate students particularly those with special educational needs. As a subject leader, I review and periodically carry out curriculum appraisal that enables a continuous assessment of a pupil's progress.

My approach to these range of needs involve use of differentiation using visual clues, bite size tasks and repeated activities to help reinforce pupils’ understanding of concepts. In one particular case with one of my students who is severely dyslexic, the use of visual clues, tactile methods and hands on helped to improve his life skills and confidence.

Secondly, for students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and oppositional defiance disorder, an ability to be understanding, use of calm approach , positive and non-judgemental, use of praise, rewards and reminders has been instrumental in modifying challenging behaviour patterns which have made learning very difficult for this cohort of students.

I have strong interpersonal, organisational skills and good classroom management skills. I have experience in intervention lessons that acknowledge and cater for individual pupil needs. I am extremely proactive in organising activities which enhance student social skills and self – esteem.
I have high expectations and strong commitment in raising pupil attainment and achievement.

My Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy stems from a strong conviction and personal learning experience that proves that children can surpass their expectation when a teacher has the following attributes;
- a secure knowledge of his or her subject
- has different approach to engage pupil
- has respect for a pupil
- makes a pupil safe and welcome

Something Sensational About Me

I have a very calm approach in dealing with challenging situations particularly in motivating pupils who lack confidence and self - esteem in their educational aspirations. I enjoy travelling to different countries and meeting people from different cultural backgrounds
