About me

I have been a teacher for 30+ years, the last twenty years spent teaching learners with Specific Learning 'differences'.
I have had experience of teaching KS2 -KS5 learners in mainstream education and 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 study and train to help other learners with these challenges.

As a Dyslexia specialist assessor I assess and diagnose Dyslexia, as well as supporting Dyslexic learners with the multisensory 'Conquering Literacy Programme'.
I also conduct Cognitive assessments for Access arrangements and Disabled Student Allowance for students up to the age of 18 years.

The assessment can either take place at either the student home or my home. If you are further afield, or prefer to be assessed at home, the Online Service is an excellent alternative if you require a Dyslexia Specialist Level 7 Assessor/tutor.
