I graduated in Polymer Technology at Brunel University and worked for a number of years in the nuclear industry. I hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (FE/HE) and have many years experience of teaching science and maths in further and higher education. My interest in adult returners to education led to me qualifying as a specialist dyslexia tutor, gaining a Diploma in Teaching in specific learning difficulties.
I started at Keele in 2000 as Disability Adviser and Dyslexia tutor with a specialism in maths tutoring and joined the Foundation Year in 2006. I have responsibility for the Health Foundation Year.
