Claudia

Primary Tutor

Hammersmith and Fulham

I have been teaching in primary schools for approximately 3 years. Before this I worked as a teacher’s assistant in many roles supporting SEND children inside and outside the classroom. I have been fortunate enough to work with all year levels ranging from 5 year olds to 15 year olds. I have gained valuable skills while gaining experience in out of school hours care, teacher’s assistant and of course teaching. In my career so far I have taught a broad scope of children with varying complexities. I am always seeking to extend my learning and knowledge as I continue my career.

How I teach children and young people with Autism

I have worked with children of varying ages with autism throughout my career. In the classroom I have planned for and implemented a specific curriculum to suit the needs of my students. I understand the importance of knowing your students to teach accurately and to their abilities. I am foremost, a relationship builder and foster a growth mindset. I believe play based learning and sensory play support emotional regulation, brain development and problem solving.

How I teach children and young people who have Oppositional Defiant Disorder

I have great experience supporting children with ODD. In the past, I have created learning experiences which relate to the student’s interests to encourage engagement. I believe taking brain breaks regularly supports a child’s emotional regulation in tough situations. I find the ‘when, then’ (when you do task A, then you can do task B) approach to be quite successful with students with ODD. I like to include multi-sensory activities through a hands-on approach to learning to keep students engaged in learning.

How I teach children and young people who are nonverbal

Working with students who have autism and are non-verbal can be challenging yet a rewarding experience. It requires a lot of patience, empathy, and creativity to find
alternative ways to communicate and connect with the student. Through my professional experience, I’ve learned various techniques and strategies like using visual supports, augmentative and alternative communication devices (AAC), and incorporating sensory activities to create a supportive learning environment. It’s truly amazing to witness the progress and growth of these students as they develop unique ways to express themselves.

How I teach anxious children and young people

Teaching students with anxiety can be both challenging and incredibly rewarding. It's important to create a safe and supportive classroom environment where students feel comfortable expressing their feelings and concerns. Building trust and rapport with my students is key, as it helps them feel understood and valued. Implementing strategies like mindfulness exercises, deep breathing techniques, and providing clear expectations and structure can also help alleviate anxiety in the classroom. My empathy and understanding can make a huge difference in the lives of my students.

How I teach children and young people who present with ADHD

Teaching students with ADHD can be a unique and dynamic experience. It's important to create a structured and engaging learning environment that caters to their individual needs. I do this by providing clear instructions, breaking tasks into smaller steps, and incorporating movement breaks to help keep their attention focused. Building a positive and supportive relationship with my students is key, as it helps them feel understood and supported. We celebrate their strengths and provide them with the tools and strategies they need to succeed.
