Study Skills Tutor (SpLD)

As a consequence of my own neurodivergence I am keenly aware of the transformative power of education and the value of organisations which facilitate these opportunities. My understanding of the social, emotional and economic implications of being marginalised through misunderstanding of neurodiversity, informs my practice. It is a joy to watch students transform their lives by; contextualising their experience, developing practical strategies to scaffold areas of weakness and develop an understanding of their strengths. I am an executive member of ADSHE my professional body, have contributed to a book on Study Skills and have given a TED talk on an alternative to the written format of assessment. I have many projects on the go and use my creativity pursuits to keep my creative neurodivergent brain thriving.
