All students are capable of more than they believe; I offer a range of services

to help unlock this hidden potential:


  • Educational Assessments (Learning Difficulties)

  • Educational Assessments (Gifted & Talented)

  • Literacy Therapy

  • Maths Therapy

  • Student Advocacy

  • Parent Support


I am a qualified secondary school and special education teacher with 15 years

classroom experience.


In my sessions, I aim to create a safe and supportive environment where students feel free to be themselves and feel valued for who they are. I will enthusiastically celebrate your son’s successes and highlight his strengths. I will encourage your daughter to become a learning warrior – brave, resilient and determined. I will always give you honest feedback about how your child is progressing.


I use evidence-based practices and programs to build your child’s skills and confidence. I have completed training in:

  • MultiLit Spell-It through MultiLit (2014)

  • MSL (Multisensory Structured Langauge) through IMSLE (2018)

  • Yoshimoto OG (Orton-Gillingham) with Ron Yoshimoto (2019)

  • Yoshimoto OG Advanced (Morphology) with Ron Yoshimoto (2019)

  • Yoshimoto Multisensory Maths with Ron Yoshimoto (2019)

  • Talk for Writing through SPELDVic (2020)

  • LETRS through DSF in WA (2020 - 2021)

  • Level 3 Certificate in Dyscalculia and Maths Learning Difficulties with Judy Hornigold and Steve Chinn (2020 - 2021)

  • Stop Arguing with Me! Intensive (Opinion Writing) with William Van Cleave (2021)

  • Multisensory Math Intensive with Marilyn Zecher (2021) 

  • Spelling Intensive with Wendy Farone Ph.D. (2021)


I am also a PhD student at La Trobe University's SOLAR Lab. My research interests include: the learning profiles of twice-exceptional students; assessment protocols for gifted dyslexic students; self-regulated learning strategies to support executive functions and metacognition; and writing interventions for secondary-aged students. In 2024, I co-authored a review entitled 'Twice-exceptionality unmasked: A systematic narrative review on the literature on identifying giftedness in the dyslexic child.'

I have worked in both the Government and the Catholic sectors in various teaching and leadership positions and have a Master’s degree in Learning Intervention (Specific Learning Difficulties). I am a consultant member of Learning Difficulties Australia.


I have a particular interest in dyslexia, dyscalculia and twice-exceptionality and specialise in the late primary to early secondary school years (Grade 4 – Year 9).

In February 2019, I established The Dyslexia Hub in Greensborough. The Dyslexia Hub brings together a team of specialists to support, empower and connect children and young people with dyslexia and other learning differences.


If you would like to know a little bit more about my background, I wrote this blog post.


My Philosophy


* I am a passionate advocate of inclusive education.

* I believe that all young people deserve to experience success at school.

* I encourage all students to better understand their own unique learning profile.

* I believe in the importance of teaching in a way that meets students where they are at.

* I believe that all students have gifts that need to be celebrated.

* I believe that all students have challenges that need to be overcome.

* I believe that learning is about growth, not results.

* I believe that young people need to be in charge of their own learning – with ownership comes empowerment.
