Since I was eight years old I wanted to be a teacher for those who struggle with maths. Therefore, qualifying with a Post Graduate Certificate in Dyscalculia fulfilled my dreams.
As a dyslexic I have great empathy for students who face learning challenges and have learning anxiety.
I have a PGCE (Maths) and have taught maths in mainstream secondary schools as well as at a specialist college for the deaf and to adults.
It is interesting to consider that I have now qualified in a field that did not exist when I started maths teaching. I am now qualified to plan specific structured teaching for those who are dyscalculic or struggle with maths.
Specialist multi-sensory tutoring of this nature is best delivered face to face as hands-on, fun, tailored sessions are an important element of effective understanding. However, on-line options are also available.
My aim is to equip students to tackle the challenges they face, have the self confidence to overcome them and to achieve their potential.
