Kate Fergusson

Study Skills Tutor (SpLD and AS)

I believe passionately that everyone deserves the right to receive an excellent education and fulfil their potential irrespective of any challenges they may face. By providing bespoke support for students, this can be achieved in a friendly, non-threatening way and will equip people with strategies to succeed in their studies and beyond into the wider world.

Having taught for more than 20 years, I became interested in working with students with SPLD and Autism. This led to a more recent career as a SENCO which I thoroughly enjoyed and a mentor for professionals at Bath Spa University who undertake specialist qualifications in Special Needs. As a perpetual student, I have a BEd, MEd and numerous other professional qualifications in coaching and vulnerable learners. I am a member of the British Dyslexia Association and enjoy working with students on an individual basis to both assess their needs and work with them to suggest strategies. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and walking my labrador.
