As those of you in the QT Community will know, Hazel Barnett has a wealth of experience in the tutoring field. An active and engaged member, Hazel draws on her M.Ed. in Maths Education and Dyslexia to find solutions to every issue, concern and query for students and fellow tutors alike.
For those not in the Community, let this be an incentive to join in the discussion!
An expert in dyslexia and access arrangements in schools, this conversation dives into the work of a SENCO (if you don’t know what this is, you’ll find the answer at [9:05]), what our method of assessment in schools should be and the key aspects of various learning difficulties.
Hazel has also taken the time to write two hugely informative blogs:
- on Study Skills to reduce exam stress – this blog discusses Hazel’s 4 top tips for cutting down stress in the run-up to exams
- on Exam Access Arrangements – this blog details all the steps necessary for tutors and teachers who are seeking exam support for their student(s)
“We strengthen learning difficulties by interventions and we accommodate them by access arrangements”
