I have been teaching since 2003 and have always put the student's need first. True to this philosophy I would, during our first half price meeting, conduct a full assessment of your child's ability, this would enable me to establish a base line and the specific needs of your child. I would then be able to discuss with you your child's need and recommend a specific course of action. At GCSE level I would work closely with you and your child on the specific exam board requirements.
I would have a debrief session with yourself after each session giving you an ongoing report of their progression. I would also discuss with you any changes I felt was necessary to ensure their continuing success.
As part of my teaching career I spent a number of years teaching maths at a Special school, specialising in working with high functions Autistic children. During all the time I have been teaching I have focused on the individual needs, in particular Dyslexia and Dyscalculia. Being a Dyslexic myself, I understand the very specific needs in particular.
If you are looking for a dedicated experienced teacher with special needs experience I would be delighted to here from you.
