I am an experienced, reliable, patient and friendly tutor who relates well to both adults and children. I have experience of teaching literacy, numeracy and creative writing to all ages, both children and adults and I try to make it interesting and fun, as well as providing a good learning experience.
I carry out all tutoring in your own home and will arrange a (free) pre-teaching visit, lasting about 30 minutes, so that you can have a chat with me prior to commencing teaching. This is so that you have sight of all documents required (CRB, Qualifications etc.) and we can discuss your requirements. Also, it means the student (child or adult) can get to know me a little before starting, and they are not so nervous when the first session begins. I have a number of private pupils in Stockton, Billingham, Redcar and Middlesbrough whose parents would be happy to provide a reference.
Availability: By arrangement
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have been a teacher for over 20 years, but have taught Literacy/English for 14 years and Numeracy/Maths for 4 years. I am able to work with all learning abilities and have taught both one-to-one and classroom based.
I use a variety of colourful and 3 dimensional resources, as well as the computer, to aid learning, so that all students can understand the variety of concepts needed to grasp the basic rules of both literacy and numeracy.
I teach Literacy up to and including GCSE/A level, Numeracy from primary to year 9.

Joan has been extremely helpful in assessing the best tuition for my son
Really good. Communicates well and shares my own views on education. A gem, though she seems no longer hidden!
