Helen’s interest in literacy and linguistic phonics stemmed from working with her severely dyslexic daughter fifteen years ago. In 2011, realising the lack of local specialist literacy support for families in similar circumstances, she set up a tutoring service to support primary and secondary students struggling to acquire literacy skills.
Since completing her training with John Walker in Perth 2013, she has been using Sounds-Write in her practice to successfully tutor individual students on a weekly basis.
Based in Margaret River, Helen delivers Sounds Write courses across the South West region of Western Australia and other remote regional areas. She also provides post training coaching to schools and other education professionals.
In addition to her literacy experience, Helen has an extensive background in adult vocational education, industry training and management.
