Currently tutoring children with speech and language delay, working memory challenges, EAL, Autism, APD, PDA, Dyslexia/dysgraphia and dyscalculia as well as tutoring for SATs and Functional Skills tests/Foundation GCSE. I have worked as a SENCo and trained special needs teams, as well as having worked with children with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, ADHD, autism and those with cerebral palsy including quadriplegia, CF, HI, VI, ADHD, ODD, OCD, PMLD, Factor X, Down Syndrome and children with dwarfism.

Working with children who receive EOTAS, I have completed PECs and Makaton training, worked alongside Speech and Language Therapists, made and followed SLT plans and incorporated suggested strategies to support the individual child. I use strategies for children with articulation/expressive disorders, fluency disorders, autism and a range of language disorders including receptive disorders in children who have difficulty understanding or processing language. I use a variety of activities with all children to develop communication skills that involve memory, attention, perception, organisation, regulation, and problem solving - these are particularly useful for children with cognitive-communication disorders.

I am SEN trained and my degree specialism was SEN. I have spent years training staff in inclusion, policies, best practice, understanding the child with different needs. I’ve worked with a wide range of children with emotional needs over my many years of teaching. The ranges include abuse/neglect/ sexual assault issues/ death of parents/ children coping with their SEN as well as emotional needs stemming from mental illness. Throughout my career I have had to deal with children in the care system and am familiar with the attachment-related behaviours, which of course are different with each child. As a trained SENCo and Safeguarding officer, I have had direct contact and had to manage children and staff related to any outcomes of the needs. I’ve also worked in schools that solely specialise in educating children with EBD (emotional behavioural difficulties).

My other specialism is Early Years and I’ve worked in both mainstream and SEN settings with Early Years children or older children accessing the Early Years curriculum. I’ve been an Early Years manager and have worked with children with all kinds of special needs within these settings including non-verbal (using PECS, Clicker, Makaton online), hearing and sight impaired as well as children with global delay.

I am experienced with working with children who have executive dysfunctions and support them in the following ways: By holding them accountable -which bolsters executive functions and shows faith in their abilities; by making information visible, using notes cards, signs, sticky notes, lists, journals — anything at all! By making time a physical, measurable thing by using clocks, timers, counters, and apps; using rewards as appropriate for each child; by making problems as physical as possible and ‘drawing out’ problems do they become real and therefore easier to deal with; by encouraging frequent breaks during tasks; by practicing positive self-statements to put them one step closer to accomplishing their goals; by helping children create goals/plans and structure to reaching their goals ensuring students have a stronger awareness and control of time management.

As a mainstream teacher, I have taught all UK curriculum subjects since graduating. For infants and primary level, I can teach all subjects to a high standard. For secondary level, I can teach English, Maths, Art, History, Morals, citizenship and Geography. My main hobby is art and I do consider myself to be an artist. I have travelled the world so understand secondary history and geography in a way that adds to the general curriculum. I have sold my art and had writing published a few times.

These experiences were in mainstream schools or such schools with additional units as well as specialist centres specifically for children with Autism or PD needs.

I believe I have the right kind of skills to work with all kinds of children in a range of communities, with varying skill sets, and be able to support the continued emotional, academic and mental development of children so that they may be challenged and supported to achieve success.

My Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is to make sure whatever I do works for the child. Tutoring must meet the learning styles and preferences of the child whilst still getting them to achieve. I’m friendly, fun and hard working - children of all ages like to be with me and I like to see children succeed. I care about children and their needs as they embark on their road to success and children can feel this so this motivates them.

Something Sensational About Me

I was employed 8 weeks before starting a Headship (to an empty building with no teachers, no children and no furniture). In 10 weeks, it was fully established, fully staffed and had over 650 children within 18 months. It was the best, fasting growing, low fee paying school in Dubai.

Jane is giving private tuition to my two sons. Even though we have started only one month ago I can see that she made a difference already to my sons. She has a great personality and discipline and method of teaching with great tailor-made system for my sons. She has an excellent teaching ability where she can determine the needs individually and act upon them accordingly. Given the fact my two sons were hard to motivate they both seem to adapt her paste and enjoy to get a tuition from her. I would highly recommend her without any doubt.

Our daughter has been having tutoring with Jane for Maths and English. I can say that our daughter has grown in confidence over this period and that is half the battle with her. Jane is extremely knowledgable in all areas of education and has managed to pinpoint areas that our daughter has missed. Our daughter has various educational needs and Jane is very adaptable with her. I would highly recommend Jane.

Brenda Taskin

Amazing teacher, very professional. My mentor and Head learnt everything from Jane. A lovely kind person who puts her students before anything. The world's best teacher and human being.

Sara Moharam

She is the best person and holds very high qualified management skills

Sarah Abdelghani

Mrs. Jane is one of the greatest person I have ever met. She is always working very hard, great teacher, all the children love her so much and she is giving touch effort to achieve her target with the children and give them the correct information in different methods. She is the right person to deal with SEN.

Mrs.Mansour

It was a pleasure working with you . One of the things which attracted my attention when working with you was the care you give to the students , how patient you are when dealing with them and how do you facilitate the learning to suit their abilities

Jessie

We are very pleased with Jane’s tutoring. Our daughter, who is age 8, has excelled in her work at a very fast pace and is now enthusiastic about school, namely her up and coming SAT’s papers. Thank you Jane
