Language Remediation – Amy van den Bergh
Amy is a qualified teacher with 5 years experience of working in remedial education. Amy has a passion for enabling and helping young minds to overcome their specific learning difficulties. As an artist, she also believes in a creative approach to learning, whereby the learner is exposed to not just the written word; but as well as pictures, sounds, games, acting and making.
Learning should be fun, and this is what Amy strives to create in her lessons. Much of children’s learning barriers become harder to overcome as they start to loose interest in school, and loose self-esteem through repeated failures. Amy van den Bergh first and foremost aims to grow the child’s self confidence, and impart an element of “fun” into their school work.
