Mathematics

As with all my tuition I work from what the tutee knows, their strengths and the teaching/learning methods that best match their preferences. 
Working with children who are achieving age expectations I enable them to find the method of carrying out calculations, problem solving and other mathematical questions, that best suit them. This then allows them to become more secure with what they are doing and paves the way for mastery of the subject.
Those who struggle with the subject are taken back to basics and I ensure that their foundation is secure so that it can then be successfully built on.
Challenges are provided for those who excel in this area and I strive to develop independent thinking which will enable them to achieve at GCSE and beyond.

English

  • Early years - developing a love for stories, an understanding of story structure, listening skills and vocabulary, in line with the early years curriculum
  • KS1 in line with national curriculum
  • KS2 in line with national curriculum
  • Building a working vocabulary to aid reading comprehension and writing skills
  • SATs preparation including exam technique and focus on question types.
  • Entrance exams for independent school and 11+ in line with the specific requirements for the individual school / LEA
  • KS3 in line with national curriculum
  • Preparation for GCSE for those with additional needs

Using the interests of the tutee, I build on their strengths developing the skills and knoweldge required.
Those who are working at age expectations are encouraged to think a little further about what an author is actually saying or why they have used a particular word or phrase. I guide them through the elements that make a good story and ensure they are secure with the features of the different types of non fiction texts.
For those who are struggling with the subject I work on a small area so that they can see success and hopefully build confidence before moving onto another element. If required I re-teach phonics to enable them to successfully decode words and become fluent enough so that they can comprehend the text.
Those who excel in this subject will be challenged to extend their knoweldge and skills.

SEND

  • Dyslexia  
  • Dyscalculia
  • SLD
  • ASD

All children are entitled to an education in a suitable setting. Unfortunately due to a lack of funding and the nature of needs some children have, this is not always the case.
With 1:1 tuition everything supports the individual in their learning journey and works to enable them to achieve their full potential.
As with all tutees, all plans are designed to support the individual and are constantly revised in response to the tutee.
