Study Skills Tutor
I feel privileged to support students in Higher Education, having first began work as a notetaker for students studying a diverse range of subjects, and from an assortment of London and the Home Counties universities.
Before this, I worked for the NHS as an Expert Patient Programme Co-ordinator (a self-management course for people with long-term medical conditions) – a varied and interesting role. As an SpLD tutor, I find the varied styles, approaches and methods of working very rewarding.
I particularly enjoy helping students succeed, not just by teaching general study-skills strategies, but also stress management, public speaking and presentation skills. I love learning new skills and challenging myself to ‘step out of my comfort zone’, so in my spare time I attended BSL Level 1 Sign Language, accredited Laughter Yoga Practitioner and even Stand Up Comedy certificate courses. I am also a freelance Confidence Coach. I enjoy sewing and I am a trained Mental Health First Aider.
