Senior Consultant & SEN Specialist
Sarah has a broad experience in education which is very wide-ranging. She worked as a tutor and taught within a school; from teaching English as a second language to focussing on dyslexic children once she gained her diploma. Sarah also learnt a great deal about study techniques and NLP. Sarah worked with Lucy at Osborne Cawkwell for six years until 2008 and, now that her children are a bit bigger, she joined us again in the office on a part time basis. We are thrilled to be benefitting from her energy and pragmatism once again.
