My work with groups includes workshops in prisons, hospitals (particularly mental health units), offices, schools, museums and adult learning centres. I have experience of tutoring people for whom English is a second language and I also have experience of working with students who are dyslexic.
I was a tutor with a company called Learning Performance seminars where I travelled to schools nationwide helping pre GCSE students identify their learning styles and I taught revision technique.
