My name is Sue Kerrigan. I am a Teacher, Private Tutor and NLP Practitioner. I am Dyslexic. Helping children that struggle with learning is a passion of mine because I was one of those children. I struggled at school and I reversed my b's and d's all the time, I couldn't spell that well either and my stories were all of a muddle. School was a miserable place for me but I got through it having found my own ways of coping with dyslexia. I put myself through college as a mature student and although I started a teaching degree, I stayed for 9 months then left. I couldn't understand the relevance of anything they were teaching me. I needed hands on let me have a go kind of training, not sit in a classroom for hours learning pure maths, I'm sure I was applying to teach children at primary level??? So I switched to a design course where I excelled and got a 1st Class Honours Degree. (Practical, arty, hands-on and right brained learning, how could I have possibly failed! This taught me a valuable lesson about learning and dyslexia. But my true calling, to become a teacher never left me so I trained privately to become a teacher and NLP Practitioner. These skills gave me the ability to combine my love of art and design with my passion for teaching to help dyslexic and struggling children learn in a creative fun way to overcome letter reversals and help them cope with their dyslexia. I currently work in a school for dyslexic children and home tutor. I've been teaching for 10 years now and have enjoyed evey minute :-)
Multi-sensory, hands-on, fun, fair and firm.
