Online/Virtual Structured Literacy Support

Structured, prescriptive, multisensory lesson support for struggling readers and spellers.  Students are provided with direct, systematic and explicit instruction in all of the key areas of literacy including phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.  

Emotionally sound, therapeutic support is given to each student.

Executive Function Coaching

Work directly with me to build and strengthen those skills you need to thrive at school, work or at home. 

Working with neurodiverse young persons and adults alike, I help to develop a toolkit to navigate the complexities of the world today.  I help clients build their self-confidence and help to remove the barriers that keep them from leading a life that brings them happiness. 

Childhood Psychology

Structured Word Inquiry (SWI) or Written Expression Support

Individualized lesson support in the following areas:


  • The SWI approach uses scientific inquiry to learn about how the language system works.  Through the process of discovery and enquiry-based learning, students will learn about the relationship between graphemes and phonemes, increase their vocabulary knowledge and enhance their understanding of spelling conventions.

  • Support in written output and expression.  Students will gain an understanding of basic sentence and paragraph structures and will be provided support in creating clear and effective written compositions  including narrative, persuasive, opinion, compare and contrast and much more.
