My life-long mission has been helping people to learn more easily because of the difficulties I have witnessed in my family because of ‘dyslexia’  and ADHD style learning differences, including my own.

Since I retired from teaching in the late 1990s I’ve carried out a huge amount of research from reading, training courses,working in schools, training parents and teachers and with my private students

Part of my time in the State Education system included working with the Hampshire County Council Education Inspectors as a Project Leader in Communicative Language Training.

Since then, I have built up a Coaching, Mentoring and Training Business, working with Children, Parents, FE Students, NQTs, Learning support Staff, Qualified Teachers and SENCOs.

As a coach-mentor I have worked 1to1 with individuals and with small groups in schools with many wonderful youngsters and their parents helping them to improve at school. I have trained parents, teachers and assistants to do the same, either by watching me working with the youngsters or in Training Sessions.

I have always enjoyed working with these people and watched them both grow in mind as well as in stature.

Together we can  make sure that even more of our children leaving first and infant schools are able to read or write at an acceptable level.

We can do this by changing the way we think about teaching them as they journey through their school experience.

At least now I have the power to change their experience so that they can change their results and you can too if you would like to learn the methods I use.

It won’t just be in Literacy that you’ll see the difference.
