About Me

I have a PGCE in Secondary English, and a M-ed in Visual Impairment where I studied the impact of teaching social skills to students with visual impairment and autism.

I’m a theatre and dance lover, and I write for Drama and Theatre Magazine (Mark Allen Group)

I’ve recently learned to swim - I think we should always continue to learn!

I am a specialist academic mentor for university students with disabilities.

I aim to make my lessons interactive and accessible. Because I work frequently with visually impaired learners I am keen to ensure all materials and activities are student friendly and accessible. I like to have conversations about what works for individual students so that lessons can be tailored specifically. I enjoy getting to know my students well to enable me to teach them effectively. I have taught in mainstream schools, and also SEN environments. I have also supported students one to one with functional English skills and been a private tutor to KS3,4 & 5 students.
