About

As an approved Level 7 Dyscalculia Assessor with a current practicing certificate (APC-PATOSS), I carry out full diagnostic assessment reports written to SASC standards, that include recommendations for school, specialist teaching and home. I can also provide a Dyscalculia screener with a summary report that incorporates a profile of the pupil’s maths skills and key recommendations for teaching.

I am a highly qualified, experienced Primary School Teacher (Qualified Teacher Status) and Maths Subject Leader, who has taught across the primary age range for over 20 years, working with a variety of learners, including those with special educational needs. As a skilled maths intervention teacher, accredited Numbers Count Teacher, Numicon Intervention Practitioner, and specialist teacher for Dyscalculia (ATD-BDA), I teach learners from KS1-KS3 on a one-to-one basis, both online and in person. Lessons are individually tailored to the learner’s specific needs, using a multi-sensory approach to enable them to think mathematically, reason, make connections and build their confidence, with the aim of enabling them to discover their true potential as a mathematician.

As an accredited Professional Development Lead (NCETM) and Associate Lecturer for Initial Teacher Training, I also provide training and information sessions for SENDCo’s, teachers and teaching staff to enable them to effectively teach those with Mathematical Learning Difficulties and Dyscalculia. My qualifications include Specialist Leader in Education for maths, PGCE Dyscalculia, as well as an MA in Education- Early Mathematics Intervention.

I am based in Worcestershire but also cover the surrounding counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Gloucestershire, and Warwickshire. I can offer my services elsewhere on request.

Qualifications

Client Reference
“We first met Louise during lockdown online where she helped Reuben over Zoom once a week. She expertly engaged in learning Maths through play and it was the highlight of his week, he love it. Latterly Louise assessed Reuben for Dyscalculia, she was very thorough, visiting Reuben at school to do an assessment. Reuben was happy to engage for what was quite a long time with movement and brain breaks. Her report was comprehensive, clear to understand and gave us the tools we need to help him. I couldn’t recommend Louise enough! Natasha Somers, Bucks”
Client Reference
Following our daughter’s diagnosis of Dyscalculia at the start of Year 8, we were keen to engage a tutor to help her develop some strategies and processes she could use that might help her both with her maths and her maths anxiety. There seemed to be limited options available to us and I was lucky to come across Louise Langford from repeated searches on the internet. Louise agreed to meet Rosie and after an initial assessment to continue with weekly sessions. Louise has been encouraging and enthusiastic with Rosie, not only helping with basics that she missed in her early years education but presenting her with innovative, engaging and fun ways to approach maths. Rosie is demonstrably less stressed and worried whilst she is with Louise and is growing in confidence and ability in her maths lessons at school. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Louise, she quickly gained a rapport with Rosie and through her continued efforts is having a very positive effect on Rosie’s life. Sarah and David Quinn
