About me

I am a Specialist SpLD Study Skills Tutor based in the specific learning difficulties team within Access West of England. 

Access West of England carries out study needs assessments for the Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA), screening and diagnostic assessments for specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia) and one-to-one specialist study skills support and specialist mentoring.  The work we do as a service has a positive impact on recruitment, retention and achievement of disabled students at UWE Bristol and directly enhances the student experience. 

I have worked at UWE for 2 years as a specialist tutor supporting students 1-to-1 to develop their study skills. Previously, I taught Maths and English in adult education, but originally, my background was in science, as I was a research scientist in the field of molecular biology and vaccine development.

Area of expertise

Specific learning difficulties, e.g., dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD
