Information about Sara
I am an experienced qualified SEN teacher, supporting children from primary school through to GCSE in literacy and maths. In addition to having extensive 11 plus entrance exam experience, I trained at Helen Arkell as a teacher for dyslexia/specific learning difficulties. My caring approach to building confidence and self-esteem, whilst learning new strategies, has gained outstanding results. Happy to provide local references.
Availability: Evenings, weekdays and weekends
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have successfully helped children with and without learning difficulties, navigate the 11 plus entrance exams in English, Maths and Reasoning papers for 10 years. In addition, I am experienced in supporting children with one-to-one literacy/revision strategies for GCSEs, covering all the examination boards for GCSE/IGCSE. My experience also extends to working at a leading girls school in Surrey and I have taught in both the private and state school system. I am also a parent of two children who have needed extra support, providing me with a greater understanding of the emotional journey children may encounter with their learning.

My daughter looks forward to her weekly English sessions with Sara. Sara used our first couple of sessions to understand and identify areas that were weaknesses in my daughters understanding, to then focus on sounds that needed working on to help with her Reading & Spelling.
