Your Dyslexia and SpLD professional
I am a qualified, dedicated teacher with over 10 years of experience working with children and latterly in teaching. I have worked in nurseries, schools and other education settings both in a classroom and one-to-one setting. I bring this expertise into my tutoring and assessment work, giving advice and recommendations based on my knowledge, expertise and creative teaching methods.
Originally, I trained as a primary school teacher, and worked in KS1 and KS2 in a wide range of different schools. In my last full-time school, I taught a class with a large number of children with dyslexia and felt totally out of my depth, but also fascinated by the different ways of learning that they exhibited. After leaving full-time teaching, I re-trained as a dyslexia specialist, tutoring individuals in schools, colleges and universities with SpLD, and then later carrying out assessments.
I currently offer full diagnostic assessments for dyslexia, alongside private tutoring and study skills tuition for a local university. I also offer consultation and training for schools, colleges and workplaces. I have a special interest in the ways that different SpLDs impact maths learning as well as how museums, charities and religious bodies can make their offerings more dyslexia friendly.

I have a current DBS check on the Update service and an Assessment Practising Certificate from PATOSS.
Outside of work, I enjoy exploring the New Forest and Dorset, reading, crafting, driving my little white car and singing. I have an MSc in Heritage and Museum Studies and enjoy a good mosey around an art gallery.
