Linda has a substantial teaching career working in a variety of educational contexts from schools, sixth-form colleges to further education. She has worked with teenagers, young adults and mature learners with different learning needs, motivations and expectations in a variety of settings from 1:1 tutoring to small groups as well as large classroom situations.
Since 1999, Linda has specialised in working with disadvantaged, vulnerable and often marginalised learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. As well as her role with the Connexus Institute, Linda continues working as a SENCo in a sixth form college.
As an educator, Linda is passionate about promoting lifelong learning where as many barriers to learning as possible are identified and omitted, thereby enabling every learner regardless of circumstance or situation to achieve their full potential.
