I am an experienced teacher, I qualified in in 1992 and have been teaching and tutoring ever since.
I trained as a secondary school science and maths teacher.
However, I have dyslexia, which meant that I always wanted to help the students who struggled.
Through my tutoring, I quickly started working with younger students and those who were struggling greatly. I set up a club in the school for the those who were struggling to come and play learning games, learn to type and to have a moan about the teaching approach. Obviously this gave me a great insight into what actually worked for the students and what made things easier or more difficult in the classroom. By applying what I learned from them directly into my practice, I found my own teaching became more effective.
