English Tuition Wendy
Specialist Teacher for Specific Learning Difficulties:
GCSE English Tuition, GCSE Mathematics Tuition, SATs Booster Sessions
I have worked with students for over 15 years with a wide range of learning abilities and differences. I have worked in various settings which include FE, HE, SEN schools, alternative provision and privately. I am also the holder of the prestigious 2018 Training and Coaching EVA Award for The North of England.
I provide specialist support for those studying GCSE courses in Mathematics and English and to those preparing for SATs examinations. I also assist students with Specific Learning Difficulties and help them develop new skills and strategies to enable them to progress with their studies and achieve. The most common SpLDs are dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. An individual may have one of these independently or they can co-exist as part of a wider profile.
As a Specialist Teacher, I primarily use multi-sensory methods to support and teach learners and to help them develop independent learning and study skills with confidence. I have worked with children and adults and am able to detect learning differences, such as visual stress, which can have a profound effect on a child or an adult. My gentle approach and understanding of various teaching approaches for learning enables me to deliver sessions which are planned correctly for the individual. My teaching qualifications and personal attributes have demonstrated that I am a caring, determined professional, who works to high standards. I have the dedication it takes to engage young and mature people in education and make a difference to their lives and their studying.
