I have more than 20 years of experience teaching SEN (including ADHD and focus/ concentration challenges, dyslexia, autism, SEBD (social, emotional, behaviour difficulties), English, Maths, Art preparing for exams 7+, 8+, 11+, study skills revision techniques. I teach all ages from Primary to A levels.


My experience teaching primary aged students and pre-prep schools: In my SEN role, as well as in my extensive 7+ experience, I have supported children in overcoming their barriers to learning and helping them to achieve their full potential. I have 12 years of experience teaching primary aged students with numeracy, literacy including phonics, handwriting and number bonds. Depending on the primary age it is vital to employ techniques such as breaking down tasks into bite size chunks, lots of repetition and finally making learning engaging and fun.


My skills and experience teaching students with ADHD and focus/concentration challenges: I have worked with primary and secondary children who find concentration and focus a challenge in my current Special School and Independent School Setting. It is crucial to build a rapport with each individual student. By introducing a variety of activities and more manageable tasks this will be particularly helpful to students who struggle with concentration. Throughout the years of my teaching experience I have seen how being patient and encouraging the students improves their confidence.

My skills and experience teaching Maths and English to students: In my SEN role as well as entrance exams preparation I have extensive experience in teaching English including handwriting, and Maths. I supported the students to overcome their barriers to learning, helping them fulfil their full potential and in their ability in reading, writing and numeracy skills. My classes are tailored to the individual students personality and learning styles.

My experience teaching specialist skills and interventions to develop students independence: Developing students' independent learning according to each individual needs, ensuring they remain in control and make good progress.

My experience working with students to boost their confidence and Self-esteem: I have worked with students both independently and in a school/college setting who have low self-esteem by helping them increase their confidence and self belief. I am extremely empathetic and sensitive to the needs of the students. Observing how students work suggesting new strategies to make learning and completing tasks easier as well as giving positive feedback so the students feel understood and want to co-operate.

My experience preparing students for the 7+, 8+, 11+: I have 12 years experience in preparing students for 7+, 8+, 11. I have been very successful in getting students into major public schools and Grammar schools and developed the core skills students need to compete effectively in Maths, English particularly harnessing the pupils creativity to develop their own writing style, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning for different boards ( ISEB, GL, CAT 4, CEM, Durham, etc ). Finally it is important to have a range of schools the parents are considering applying for.

My experience working with students with Dyslexia and Autism: I have worked with dyslexic students ages 7-18 as well as conducting special classes for dyslexia adults. I have also designed and implemented curriculum geared towards students with language disabilities. Furthermore, I have collaborated with other special education personal to design and administer curriculum. I have experience of working with autism, which included working with children in a school setting, as well as working in a home setting observing students how they are working in a family setting. I can monitor the child’s progress, determine which plans are working, which ones are not and I can help to make changes when needed.

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe it is crucial to be flexible and tailor learning to each individual students personality and learning styles. Recognising each students individual strengths and difficulties will help develop a method to maximise their potential as well as needs and motivations. Collaborative learning process involves different communication strategies which will ultimately enhance students capabilities, with flexibility to change and developing educational activities in order to maximise students progress. It is vital to encourage the students with positive reinforcement of their achievements, giving them new strategies to make tasks easier, quicker and more successful, whilst building their conference and self-esteem. Throughout the years of my teaching students have all exceeded their expectations after a relatively short period of time. Finally working cooperatively with schools and parents is the key to success of each individual child.
