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.

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.

What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for over 30 years and teach primary and secondary school pupils.

My practice is in Hampstead Garden Suburb (NW11). I am married and I have 4 children so my insight and experience of children has been personal as well as professional.
I run handwriting groups where children are guided through my unique, 30 - step handwriting programme. This is highly structured and so far been 100% effective. Children's confidence and self- esteem improve and written exams become easier and more legible.
