    Dyslexia / Dypraxia / Reading and Writing difficulties support

    Is your child having difficulties with reading and writing due to Dyslexia, Dypraxia , ADD or an other unspecified learning difficulties? Is your child struggling with reading in English? Is mastering spelling still a difficulty in spite of endless revisions? Has your child entered the Secondary cycle and is still a reluctant writer or is unable to correct and review his own work? I specialize in tutoring children who have difficulties in reading and writing either due to dyslexia and other literacy challenges/English is not their native language. I am specialized in evidence-based multisensory methods (Orton Gillingham approach) supporting students with literacy, such as: handwriting, reading and decoding.
    Upon request, I also give parents suggestions to support school work, spelling strategies, etc. The lessons are on a one to one basis or maximum two students.

    I am a qualified special educational needs teacher working in an International school.

    About Me

    I use strategies which are evidence based, i.e. they are based on the most current research on the acquisition of literacy. The lessons are multi-sensory and highly structured, to assure that your child understands the sound system and logic of the English language. Your child will enjoy these lessons because they will learn through 'play' and multi sensory strategies.
    For me it is a joy to discover the challenges of your child, and find the right tool to help him/her improve his reading and writing skills.
    Students in the Secondary Cycle are taught strategies to review their work, auto-correct, etc.
    The joy of reading and writing is a necessary tool which can be taught to all students if the right methods are used.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I work in an international school, Belgium tutoring students with dyslexia and other literacy difficulties since 2017. I draft individual learning plans for the students based on their learning challenges. I previously worked at the University of Malta (Theatre Studies Program) tutoring students, improving their English writing skills. I also taught Art for many years. It is through teaching Art that I came across many students with learning difficulties which led me to pursue my studies in Special Educational Needs, specializing mainly in Dyslexia and ADD. This background has given me the resourcefulness and creativity to find solutions for the challenges my students face.

    Private tuition in French / homework help / job correction
    French teacher in a language school, I propose an individualized pedagogy, a playful approach to the French language. My goal is to (re) discover the richness of the French language without overburdening you. My point of view is that language is a social tool for communicating. That's why I will not do grammar, even if it will obviously have a place in learning. I have already had the opportunity to work with all audiences by adapting the approaches. However, I keep some constant that have proven themselves. For example, with teenagers and adults, I will work on nursery rhymes to improve phonetics even if it sounds childish. I also use games to learn, for example, to describe physically or to tell his routine ...

    Learn how to speak in italian from the first lesson.
    In the words of Nelson Mandela “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart”. Of all the romance languages, Italian is the closest to Latin and  it is estimated that 60% of English words derives from Latin. Learning Italian will make any other romance language, including Spanish, French, Portuguese and Romanian, more approachable and easier to learn. Italian is an incredibly beautiful and intricate language and studies show that learning a new language increases analytical thinking skills. Studying a foreign language stimulates the brain, by boosting problem solving skills and improving  memory. Just how easy is it to learn Italian? Well, according to the Foreign Service Institute, the US government’s premier language training institution, Italian is considered a Category 1 language on their “Language Difficulty Ranking.” Another reason Italian is considered an easy language to learn is because of the close kinship between spelling and pronunciation. There’s a strong correlation between how you spell a word and how you pronounce it. There’s not an abundance of silent letters, missing sounds and spellings that have got nothing to do with how the word is spoken. My students usually starts to communicate in Italian, in a relatively short time , practically from the first lesson! Learn the most romantic language in the world by having fun and with the most effective method on the market: no textbook, no complicated directory.
