I am an accredited Dyslexia-SPELD specialist literacy teacher with university qualifications in education and psychology. I have over 20 years teaching experience with a particular focus on working with students with literacy difficulties, including those with diagnosed dyslexia.
I provide a COMPREHENSIVE LITERACY assessment prior to establishing an individual, structured, phonic based, multi-sensory program that addresses each student's specific needs and areas of weakness.
Programs run for 12 to 30 weeks and re-testing shows that most students make significant improvements in their literacy skills. Students and their parents meet with me once a week for an hour and are then expected to complete a structured, follow-
up homework program to ensure the information taught is stored in long-term memory.
I am also able to offer specialist teaching over the internet and currently have students in Singapore and around Australia.

I have provided specialist one-on-one teaching in literacy for over 15 years. An
analysis of 50 consecutive students showed that the average time students spent with
me was 1 hour a week for 13 weeks and the average improvement in spelling was 1
year and just under 1 1/2 years in reading accuracy and comprehension. My goal is to
significantly improve students' literacy skills in a short time frame by providing them
with the underlying knowledge and skills required to be competent readers and spellers.
