Learning With Me
I take the time to understand and connect with my students, working at their pace and understanding their strengths in order to really get the best out of them. I am committed to making the sessions fun and engaging whilst also ensuring I do everything I can to help students progress.
Aside from working with students directly I aim to really listen to families about the best way to support their children as I find that progress can be made more quickly when the whole family is considered and engaged.
Outside of teaching, I love to do yoga and am a trained children’s yoga teacher. I love to go walking with our dog Bridie and to go camping. Reading has always been a passion of mine and is the ultimate escape.
