Hello, and a warm welcome
I am a qualified specialist dyslexia teacher with over 25 years experience teaching children with literacy and maths difficulties in Hertfordshire, Hillingdon and Harrow.
I teach dyslexic pupils on a one to one basis within schools and in my own home. The heart of my teaching focuses on the child’s strengths and interests, resulting in fun and engaging multi-sensory and structured lessons. My ultimate aim is to build up children’s confidence and self-esteem. Forming supportive relationships with pupils, parents and staff is vital to my successful teaching.
I provide professional dyslexia assessments and reports with practical strategies for teachers and parents. In addition, I assess for visual stress within schools. I am very happy to meet parents together with the teachers to discuss the best ways to support their child.
I have been involved in training primary and secondary staff in recognising dyslexia strengths and weaknesses and implementing practical strategies that are not only beneficial for the dyslexic pupils, but the whole class.
