Educational Experience

I have worked in various educational settings including class teaching Mainstream Primary and Middle Schools; Home tuition in Lambeth; private tuition in Lancaster; and teaching in local Special Schools (Red Oak; Morecambe Road) .
I have been a classteacher as well as a Special Educational  Needs Coordinator (SENCo) for many years and was Headteacher locally for 10 years. Since retirement I work with a variety of students.

I regularly attend courses to remain up to date with modern developments.

Teaching structure

During every lesson a specific format is followed which is customised for each student reflecting their individual interests.

This will involve:

  • Alphabetic letter recognition (graphemes and phonemes) using coloured foam magnetic letters.
  • Introduction/revision of particular groups of spellings, over-learning and consolidation through a multi-sensory approach.
  • Reading from appropriate texts.
  • Writing for confidence and fluency, using a cursive script.
  • Home reading; ideally a stimulating book being read to the student, aimed at their interest level.
  • Set homework and tasks, when appropriate.

This will be supported by a variety of resources; from children’s books, leaflets, newspapers and poetry to computer spelling programmes.
