About Me

I first qualified as a primary school teacher in 2003. In this role I encountered children with specific learning difficulties and I wanted to understand how I could support them more effectively. In 2010 I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Dyslexia and Literacy and I have since worked as a specialist teacher with Dyslexia Action and in school and university settings. I have a wide range of experience teaching and assessing learners from primary school age to adults in employment. ​I currently work as an Associate Assessor with The British Dyslexia Association as well as carrying out private assessments. 


I hold the following relevant qualifications:

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Dyslexia and Literacy (Level 7) 

  • Current Assessment Practising Certificate awarded by The Dyslexia Guild. I am also on the SASC list of assessors. 

  • Postgraduate certificate in Education 

  • BSc (Hons) Psychology 


In addition to this: 

  • I am a member of The Dyslexia Guild 

  • I hold a clean enhanced DBS record and Professional Indemnity Insurance. ​

  • I am Data Protection registered with the Information Commissioner's Office

  • I regularly undertake training to ensure that practice is current and reflects changes in the assessment of specific learning difficulties.
