I am an experienced fully qualified teacher specialising in tutoring handwriting. My aim is to transform untidy writing into legible, neat and joined-up / cursive handwriting. With a focused and simplified approach this key literacy skill can be achieved within 10-12 sessions. Suitable for all age groups.
This targeted intervention allows children to attain quickly the National Curricular requirements for their year group. I assess the child’s writing during the first lesson highlighting areas that require improvement. The children are taught in a motivating and encouraging environment.
Each session will reinforce writing skills, focusing on speed, spelling and presentation. This will ultimately result in an increased confidence in schoolwork, homework, tests and examinations.
Poor handwriting can occur due to insufficient time at school being spent teaching the key skills. Children need time to grasp and consolidate each stage. I have also helped many children with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, ADHD, autism and cerebral palsy. The methods I use are approved by the British Dyslexia Association.
The ability for children to be able to write with ease and speed is of prime importance allowing them to focus their attention on the content of the subject thereby fulfilling their potential.
I work in partnership with parents, giving feedback after each lesson. Specific guidance is given to ensure the child consolidates progress by practising between lessons resulting in speedy progress.
