Currently supporting undergraduate students at University of Suffolk, Ipswich campus. Working with students studying a variety of subjects including paramedic science, graphic design and social work.
I'm dyslexic and Angela worked with me to ensure access to the best assistive technology available. I found her to be a sympathetic, effective and highly knowlegable educator.
In particular she trained me in the use of TextHelp Read and Write Gold which is a superb enabler for my MBA studies and my everyday work. Although I had the software for over a year it was only after the session with Angela that I finally got to grips with TextHelp as a tool!
On my first tutorial I was nervous, but I found Angela really easy to talk to which helped with my confidence. Angela was very helpful and offered lots of good advice about writing assessments. I believe she played a big part in my learning with The Open University.
Angela Bell is a very knowledgeable tutor and always full of words of wisdom to help me with my studies and own personal development. An asset to The Open University team.
You make a real difference to the learning experience of these students at the beginning of their Higher Education journey. Thank you for all of your hard work.
I have always found Angela to be an excellent communicator, conscientious, trustworthy and she always strives to do her best for the students. She is positive and has an excellent comprehension of studying and all its requirements.
