Specialist Mentor (MH and AS) and Study Skills Tutor (AS)
Marjory was a teacher and then an Educational Psychologist. They have been working with neurodiverse university students for more than 20 years. They have found that each student is unique in how they adapt to university as it is a new way of living and learning – this Marjory learnt from personal experience, having studied full-time, part-time and through distance learning.
Being able to support students to manage challenges has proved to be very rewarding for Marjory. Students are very resourceful and capable once they discover that most challenges can be managed. Discovering strategies and solutions together is empowering – and ultimately the student will emerge as a more confident, independent achiever. This growth makes the job enjoyable and worthwhile.
Marjory learns all the time, including from students. She often shares relevant ideas with other students – like recycling and upcycling ideas. Their hope is that your time at university is worthwhile and rewarding, in preparation for your future.
On Friday afternoons Marjory facilitates the Eastleigh Serendipity Adult Autism Group which is run by Autism Hampshire – alternating between online and in-person meet-ups.
