I am a mature Learning Support Teacher with a wide range of experience in GCSE and Key Stage 3 English.

GCSE : English Language and English Literature.

I have a vast amount of experience teaching pupils who may be struggling at school and who may need support through a specifically designed framework of learning.
I believe that a children should learn through a friendly, fun and conducive environment in which positive learning, self esteem and confidence can grow.
Availability: Weekday evenings and any time during the day.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I qualified with an Education degree in 1979 and have 30 years teaching experience.
I trained originally as an infant teacher and have since covered all ages up to GCSE during my career.
A large chunk of my current working commitment is with Year 9/10/11 in preparation for English GCSE Language and Literature.
In 1987, I studied for an Advanced Diploma in Special Needs in Education and have worked in this area ever since across all key stages.
I have worked as a Learning Support co-ordinator in several schools but now tutor privately within the same field.
