« My 11 year- old daughter's handwriting has been totally transformed by Lee's method. However, within 4 sessions, Lee has changed the way she writes. I worked as a paediatric occupational therapist for over 10 years and despite my extensive experience. I had not been able to resolve my daughter's handwriting problems. I cannot recommend Lee enough. She really is a treasure and her method works. Its simple, quick and logical. »

(concealed information)

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Handwriting specialist teacher/tutor for primary and secondary school-age children. (Age 5 - 18 years old). Suitable for all children, including bright and intelligent pupils who have simply 'slipped through the net' as well as children who have dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, hypermobility, dysgraphia, and Asperger's syndrome. Also perfect for left-handers. I believe all pupils are capable of achieving neat, legible, joined-up handwriting and it is never too late to learn.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I qualified as a speech and language therapist in 1981 and have the R.S.A diploma in specific learning difficulties (dyslexia).
I am a member of the National Handwriting Association and a member of Patoss, which is the Professional Association for teachers and assessors of students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)
I have created my own structured handwriting programme which is called the Magic Link handwriting programme. This has so far proved 100% effective transforming children's handwriting from messy, rushed and illegible to neat and fluent. Usually, between 10-12 lessons are required to go through the programme.

Yes. I have an up to date enhanced DBS certificate.

I am the creator of the programme and now training qualified teachers around the country in this method so that pupils can achieve neat, cursive handwriting. This will improve their confidence, self-esteem and legibility and increase their chance of success.

I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

Huge improvement. My 7 year- old son's handwriting has gone from illegible scrawl to neat, well- formed letters. As well as letter formation Lee has worked on his spelling, teaching him the basic rules and also on his punctuation.
Many thanks to Lee!

My 6 year old has made dramatic improvement. He now has correct letter formation, ascenders and descenders are appropriate and his writing his legible and neat.
