I am a literacy teacher of 40 years experience. I have worked in a wide range of schools in London and have helped many children and young people. For the last twenty years, my work has focused exclusively on teaching dyslexic pupils.  I live in Chiswick and when I’m not teaching, can be found enjoying reading, cycling or looking after my new granddaughter.
