I'm a final year Sports Student at Cardiff Met, looking to support Undergrad, A level, GCSE Sports students in achieving their goals.
I am dyslexic and because of this I understand that everyone learns in a different way and that the conventional and normal are not always what is best. Mind maps, post its, lists, posters, presentations which ever method you choose to help you learn and progress, is personal and right for you I will support and guide you.
I have helped students achieve their goal of a 2:1 in assignments, help them organise their time and manage their commitments. It's not just about being successful academically but also in your personal life. Being able to find the balance and ensure you succeed in all that you do is a key to achieving your goals.
