I have been a teacher for 30+ years, the last twenty years teaching learners with Specific Learning 'differences'.
I have had experience of teaching KS2 -KS5 learners in mainstream education and as a Headteacher in specialised units for Looked After Children. I have a child centred approach to teaching, and learning. After discovering my son had Dyslexia, I decided to train at Manchester Metropolitan University to help learners with these challenges.
I have been supporting school age children for five years and my current students range from 8 - 17 years with Literacy/Dyslexia challenges.
I have also supported Dyslexic/ ASD undergraduate students at Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan, UCLan, Salford and Bolton Universities since 2019 In my role as a study support tutor I help them work towards degree success.
