Help with English Language and English Literature
To add to the range of challenges, Key Stage assessments test comprehension and A Levels often include English Literature.
Key Stage 1
Youngsters like being taught by an author and often respond creatively! My picture book *Fisherman Fred is the sort of thing that gets young children reading - and drawing and writing! After much experiment, Fred has found the best words for his sign - a lesson in careful use of language!
Key Stage 2
Key Stages 3 and 4
I've also produced a range of lively materials for older pupils, much of it (as the picture shows) with boy appeal.
Boys and girls alike enjoy my oral and activity-based approach, tailored to their individual needs. This is true when I'm coaching high-flyers and also when I'm helping youngsters who've dropped behind. Remedial work really can put youngsters back on course!

Here's a tip to help youngsters with spelling:
Don't present them with 'bogey' pairs like 'there' and 'their.' That's ok for testing, not teaching.
Instead, look at pairs like 'here' and 'there' or families of words like ear, hear and heard.
