I provide excellent tutoring in Maths (up to GCSE), English (up to KS3), Science (up to GCSE), Psychology (up to A-level) and all Primary subjects. I love teaching and tutoring, have an in-depth understanding of learning and build positive working relationships with tutees, so that they are fully engaged in their learning and enjoy the tutoring experience.
As a qualified and experienced primary teacher, I am very familiar with the National Curriculum and well trained in engaging and effective methods of teaching. Thus I am ideally placed to personalise the learning to your childs strengths and to the gaps in their learning. Secondary-aged children who are struggling often benefit from tutoring with primary specialists, as we can build the learning from fundamental concepts and use creative teaching methods. Children I have taught and tutored have made noticeable improvements at school and achieved excellent results in SATS, 11+ exams and secondary school assessments.
Thanks to my background in both Education and Psychology, I can provide a comprehensive tutoring service that boosts children`s confidence as well as their academic attainment. I enjoy working with children with Special Educational Needs, whether diagnosed or suspected, and have extensive experience working with people with Autism Spectrum Condition and ADHD. Children I have tutored have overcome their barriers to learning and achieved brilliantly in school, while also developing greater confidence and insight into their own learning.
What to expect:
Before tutoring, I will discuss the tutee`s learning and preferred tutoring subject(s) with both them and their parents (if applicable). In the first session, we will usually start with a fun and gentle activity such as learning games, as it is important that children enjoy tutoring and form a productive working relationship with their tutor. I am friendly and enthusiastic about tutoring, which children really engage with - my previous tutees have all enjoyed tutoring.
In the following session, I will usually assess the tutees learning in the chosen subject(s), using a combination of written and informal assessment techniques. In future weeks, I can then teach the topics they showed gaps in during assessment, using a combination of games, quick starter activities, taught content, learning resources and joint working with the tutee. Over time, the learning becomes increasingly tailored to the child and you can expect to see improvements in their academic achievement, school reports, self-esteem and positive attitude to learning.
At any time, parents can ask to discuss their childs learning and the tutoring with me. While sessions are usually children only, parents are welcome in tutoring sessions if they would like some guidance in how to help their child learn at home.
Availability: I am available weekday evenings from Tuesday to Friday, 3.30pm-8.30pm. I can also work during the day, if needed.
Location is flexible to accommodate your needs. Tutoring at my home in central Brighton is recommended; however, it`s no problem for me to travel to your home if preferred.
