Dr Eleanor Ward – Wealth of Knowledge Tuition
I’m Dr Eleanor Ward, and I am a highly qualified and experienced Special Educational Needs tutor in Cheshire. I am patient, kind, understanding and try to do the very best for the parents and students that put their trust in me for their educational needs.
I have a PhD in English Literature from The University of Manchester and a wealth of experience tutoring students from primary to adult.
I particularly focus on special needs tutoring, including home educated and EOTAS students, and those with a variety of additional needs. I have many students with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties, Autism, PDA, brain injuries, medical needs, attachment disorder and other special education needs. I am trauma-informed and have worked with looked after children. I regularly attend multi-disciplinary meetings, EHCP reviews and meetings with other professionals.
Many of my students are being home educated, or need some extra support aside from exams, and I specialise in being a flexible tutor, who can teach a variety of subjects in engaging ways. I have designed a curriculum for home-educated students and figured out ways to incorporate education into games, projects and experiments. I often recommend different interventions for students and make sure that my teaching is multi-sensory and kinesthetic, providing the correct skills for the child. I love working with parents and children to find what they need from education.
Additionally, I have a lot of academic experience in Disability Studies. I have a Dyslexia Training Certificate, a Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties and have passed the core modules from The National Autistic Society. I am currently completing a qualification to become a specialist teacher for Dyslexia.
I also have experience tutoring all humanities and social science subjects to a high standard up to degree level. I have a lot of experience preparing students for exams and an exemplary record of improving their grades and confidence quickly. This year on average my GCSE students improved by more than 2 grades.
