Experience, training and skills

I am a fully qualified and experienced special needs/ dyslexia/ specific learning difficulties tutor and assessor specialising in targeted English, visual and verbal memory and study skills support. I am a member of the Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (PATOSS), The National Handwriting Association and the Dyslexia Guild/Real Training.

I work with children and adults and my focus is to help children and adults learn using an understanding of their individual learning profiles. I utilise student’s strengths and I have a solid history of helping students and adults to achieve their goals.

I have worked as a SENCO in a primary and secondary school and more recently I have been employed as a Dyslexia Co-ordinator at City Lit. I gained a great deal from these positions but my greatest educational experiences have been from working with the children and adults themselves. I tailor everything I do to the individual and I am able to supply testimonials from parents regarding my 1:1 tuition with them.
