Study Skills Tutor (SpLD)
Komal has been involved in the field of supporting students for the last 20 years. They started with supporting learners as a student counsellor in a high school and later diversified into the field of supporting students with a range of learning differences.
Komal has an undergraduate degree in Child Development, a Masters degree in Social Welfare, a Level 5 in Teaching students with SpLD, and a certificate in teaching students with Dyscalculia. In addition, Komal is a certified practitioner for the Orton Gillinham Phonics instruction and is involved with some SpLD work specifically in this area. Komal has worked with foster care programs, vulnerable children, and High school students in an International setting with students from more than 50 nationalities and University students.
Komal is passionate about working with students during their learning journey. They feel like their relaxed approach allows anyone working with them to feel confident and involved in the learning process. It is a priority for Komal to tailor the sessions to each individual student according to their learning style and accommodate any specific needs. Many times the teaching at Universities is not geared towards students having different needs and learning can become overwhelming. Komal’s role is to equip students to overcome these challenges. Komal love being a study skills tutor as they can help make tasks manageable, maximise students’ strengths and experience success. Komal feels blessed to be working with D&A to help students achieve their potential.
Apart from teaching, Komal loves to cook Indian cuisine and also try other cuisines, enjoy going on long walks, listening to music and travelling.
