I am an Academic Skills Tutor based in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Huddersfield. I develop and deliver embedded academic skills sessions, as well as providing 1-1 tutorial support to students in my department. I am also a numeracy specialist teacher, having previously been a numeracy lecturer in adult education, and specialise in providing drug calculation support and numeracy refresher sessions for nursing and midwifery students. My research interests include maths anxiety, other study anxieties and student identity.
How can I help learning developers?
I am happy to share good practice and offer support to other learning developers, particularly in the areas of numeracy/drug calculations or academic writing skills development.
