How I teach students with autism

I have over 10 years’ experience of working with students with ASD. Throughout my teaching journey, I have learnt different teaching methods which are best suited for learners with autism. It is important to think about how the learner is feeling when communicating with them, whether they are comfortable, happy, sad, anxious, stressed, etc. If an individual feels stressed and appears uncomfortable with eye contact, for example, it may be better to sit at the side of them to reduce their anxiety, so that they do not feel the pressure of having to make eye contact.
By using appropriate communication skills, I can provide better support to the individual, allowing them to make their own choices and make them feel respected, valued and in control.

I have made recommendations and implemented strategies on EHCPs, to support young people to reach their true potential, developing their social skills, communication skills, ability to emotionally regulate and improve both fine and gross motor skills.

How I teach Maths

I have experience in teaching Functional Skills Maths at all levels in secondary and Further Education. I am passionate about making it an enjoyable learning experience for my students. I achieve this by incorporating a variety of games and practical activities, using manipulatives to capture their interests. My teaching methodology focuses on fostering meaningful connections to their lived experience, encouraging problem-solving abilities, and equipping students with step-by-step strategies to confidently approach increasingly complex math questions.

How I teach English

I have taught English Literature and Language in schools, tuition centres and on a 1-1 basis over the last 10 years. I have excellent understanding of how to make progress from one term to the next and how to implement engaging and well-structured lessons. I particularly enjoy writing with purpose, whether that is creatively within a specific genre, or to convince and persuade. I love supporting students with getting to grips with texts and in understanding how meaning is shaped and constructed whilst being able to communicate their ideas in a clear and coherent manner.

I also support children to gain writing skills, teaching them to plan, draft and edit their work, using increasingly complex sentences, grammatical features, language and punctuation. Alongside traditional methods, I incorporate visual tools such as Colourful Semantics and Widget to enhance understanding. Using these approaches has enabled me to support children to become proficient readers and writers.

How I teach children with focus and concentration difficulties

Supporting children with concentration difficulties is a vital aspect of my teaching approach. To help children thrive, I create a structured and predictable environment with clear routines and visual timetables. I use the scaffolding approach to my teaching where I break down tasks into small steps. This allows shorter bursts of focus and reduces feelings of being overwhelmed. I like to incorporate children’s interests and multi-sensory techniques, such as hands-on activities and sensory experiences, to keep children engaged in learning. Movement or brain breaks also help with grounding and refocusing.

How I support children and young people’s confidence and self-esteem

Supporting individuals with low self-esteem involves a compassionate and holistic approach that recognises each child’s unique struggles and empowers them to develop a healthier and more positive sense of self. To support learners suffering with low self-esteem, I like to understand the causes so that I can tailor support accordingly. I encourage positive reinforcement and praise my students’ efforts no matter how big or small their achievements maybe. I found that encouraging and motivating my learners has helped boost their confidence and self-esteem.
