Ms Vicki T

Qualified, experienced and approachable teacher and tutor of many years standing. My job is to tutor your child in the way which best matches their learning style and capabilities - this is not the one size fits all policy provided by schools. My role is to gently guide them to achieve their potential. We all have strengths and weaknesses and the key is to shape them into success-I work only with students who are comfortable with me so following the introductory lesson I ask the student to provide feedback to you on whether they want to work with me. Even young children have instincts and preferences I specialise in learning differences such as dyslexia, dyspraxia etc from primary up to masters degrees. Put your child first and let's do this together.

SUBJECTS TAUGHT:
SEN, English, History, Homeschool, Religious Studies
Qualifications:
PATOSS specialist dyslexia teaching (ongoing). PGCE University of Wales. BA (Hons) Cardiff University.
