Caroline Leahy

Study Skills Tutor

I am a teacher and lifelong learner. I have taught across all age ranges and all continents! I trained as a Biology Teacher and this led to incredible roles as a Naturalist in Florida and Safari Guide in Kenya. I have a real passion for nature and the environment. I retrained as Dyslexia Specialist Teacher whilst working at a boys school in SW London and wanting to make a difference for those young people who were struggling with core literacy skills. I am very holistic in my approach.

I am a trained Mindfulness Teacher and I also volunteer for the charity Action for Happiness. I try to incorporate the principles of Positive Psychology and Growth Mindset into the work I do with my students. I’ve recently completed an MA in SpLD Dyslexia and I understand the challenges and pressures of higher-level study. My motto is “enjoy the journey”!
