Learning about learning
Many years ago while spending time in Rome I had the opportunity to enroll in an Italian language class. This was provided within a language school and was taught in a very traditional way with the teacher at the front of the class relaying knowledge. Once in awhile students were required to recite what they learnt in front of the class. I found style of learning very stressful, creating anxiety and inability to focus. After a few weeks I decided that learning languages was not for me and I left with very little knowledge of Italian.
A few days later I saw an add in a window for Italian lessons taught in the teachers home. I met the teacher and began attending lessons. On arrival she would make me a coffee and we would sit and chat in my limited Italian in the comfort of her home. Without the stress and anxiety I was in the best place for learning, I was relaxed, focused and discovered that I was able to learn a new language.
Having spent over 20 years as a primary school teacher I have witnessed many children who often appeared stress and anxious when approaching learning.
It wasn’t until my own son was diagnosed as dyslexic that I began to understand what lies behind some of these learning difficulties.
After a lot of research I was led to the Davis Correction Programmes. This was the beginning of a new focus in my teaching career. I discovered for the first time an approach that addressed the issues that I had seen for many years.
Now having completed the Davis facilitator training I am excited to be working with individuals, helping them to understand how they learn and enabling them to establish skills that will assist them throughout life.

Why Work with Me?
Many parents come to me when they have exhausted all options and/or are disillusioned with the education system.
I totally get it, but as a teacher and dedicated educator myself, I also know the teachers are looking for ways to support you too.
I am the bridge. I provide the tools to enable your child to be ready to learn with strategies that will assist them through out their education AND work with teachers to make sure everything is aligned so the learning process is integrated into the classroom environment.
Let me help your child get from a place of anxiety and frustration to relaxation and focus so they can get to the right mental place for learning.
The moments when together when we realize what has stopped them going forward, discovering what has blocked them and unraveling bad patterns of learning. When we unravel all the stuff that has added to the confusion. Stripping back to find that place of certainty as a beginning point. THEN installing skills that help with the anxiety and stress.
