I have a passion for supporting those students who find their learning challenging (with or without a specific learning difficulty). I enjoy helping to ease their stress and frustration by seeking out suitable tailored strategies to support their learning.
I live in West Oxfordshire and have recently been teaching in a part time role supporting students with specific learning difficulties for a further education college. I have been teaching for 17 years and graduated with an English degree in 1994 From the University of Southampton. I gained my PGCE in 2003 with Oxford Brookes University and a Diploma in Teaching Learners with Dyslexia/Specific Learning Difficulties in 2017.
I have taught in a variety of environments including two other colleges in Oxfordshire, the Oxfordshire Dyslexia Association, and Thames Valley Probation Service. My experience is with a broad range of students from primary to post compulsory education sectors and includes looked after children and those who have been excluded.
I am also able to deliver study skills for GCSE, A Level and Access students, and skills for adults wishing to develop in the workplace. Please contact me for details.
