How I got here

I have spent a long time studying, learning and reading. I have worked with children for a long time now as a teacher and tutor and my primary focus is on raising confidence, either in their studies, life in general or themselves.

I remember my Dad saying that all children need to be looked after properly; so it has become a natural path for me to use this as my compass to make sure that everything I do serves this goal.

Raising confidence in kids through teaching, social skills or therapy is my aim. It’s our duty as parents, teachers, and adults to protect them in every area we can.

Why I do it

For these two.

I discovered early on as a teacher and a mother that one of my kids had Dyslexia. I set myself a challenge to learn everything there is about it and start to incorporate this into my everyday teaching and parenting. I notice the difference when I make more effort. Which, believe me, I know is hard!

I truly believe that every child needs a good start and all teachers should be preparing kids in this way, but with the government not able to give teachers and schools enough time to do this, it's near impossible to support everyone in the way that they need.
