Understanding the "square pegs"
As a parent and step-parent of young people with a combination of Asperger's, dyslexia and ADHD, Peter has a deeper understanding of how these diagnoses can affect learning.
Peter has also had considerable experience teaching and tutoring young people with different learning difficulties and disabilities.
He "gets" where they're coming from and can gain their trust to help them believe in themselves.
Peter can meet your child at your home where they feel comfortable. If this is not possible, online support is available.
He can work with your child's school, helping them with homework, areas they are struggling with, and assignments.
Peter uses a range of strategies and tools to find what works best for your child.
Linking with school
It's important to be supporting students with what they're learning at school.
This means communicating with teachers through parents.
This is particularly important for exams and assignments.
As a teacher, Peter can interpret "school talk" and make sense of it for you and your child.
Supporting lifelong learning
Everyone is on their own journey. Peter's wide experiences and knowledge make him the ideal support person for you or your child's journey as a learner, at any stage of life.
Peter has been working as a teacher for over 20 years and as a tutor since 2015.
He has a strong mix of experience, knowledge, skills and empathy.
Specialising in helping students identify and achieve their personal goals through a tailored approach, Peter uses a range of resources, including technology and more traditional or "old-school" methods.
He takes great pride in the progress and success of his students, and looks forward to helping you.
Contact Peter to find out what he can offer you and your student.
It's OK to be different.
