Having qualified as a teacher in 1995, I spent 17 years teaching across the whole of the primary age range (Early Years to Year 6). I then attained specialist teacher and assessor status for children with dyslexia in 2012 and became an Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA).
Since this time I have worked in Learning Support departments in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, supporting children across KS 2-4 with specific difficulties in both literacy and numeracy.
In 2018 I gained my Post Graduate Certificate in Dyscalculia with Distinction and was granted an Assessment Practising Certificate and Approved Teacher Status Dyscalculia. This qualifies me as one of the first specialist teacher assessors for children with dyscalculia in the country. Having Level 7 qualifications in both dyslexia and dyscalculia is seen as the "gold standard" for assessing dyscalculia (Peter Jarrett, Chair of the British Dyslexia Association's Dyscalculia and Maths Difficulties Committee).
My current teaching role involves supporting children with dyscalculia through the use of a structured, multisensory teaching program. I am involved with staff training, both internally and within the local community of schools, and have run dyscalculia INSET at schools across the South East of England.

Testimonial from a client
My daughter Ellie was struggling with maths when she was offered 1:1 sessions with Miss Davey. Very quickly Miss Davey put Ellie at ease with her natural humour and reassuring personality. She identified that her main issue was a lack of confidence and worked to build this up. Ellie has since passed entry exams with flying colours and is really enjoying maths in her secondary school. Thanks to Miss Davey my daughter is now a happy, confident learner. I could not recommend Miss Davey highly enough. She is a brilliant teacher.
My latest certificate was issued on 27th March 2021. I am registered with the DBS Update Service.
