Brenda Ferrie

I qualified as a secondary maths teacher over 30 years ago and quickly specialised in dyslexia and learning difficulties.  I ran my own company training specialist dyslexia teachers to level 5 and 7 while at the same time I continued to do assessments and support learners both with literacy and numeracy.  I have been with the British Dyslexia Association for almost 10 years developing their training opportunities and am now the Lead for Dyscalculia.  I have held an Assessment Practicing Certificate (APC) for over 15 years and both AMBDA for dyslexia and dyscalculia.

    To whom it may concern, I have known Brenda Ferrie since early 2018 in a professional capacity. Brenda is our Dyscalculia lead at the BDA. She has written our level 2, 3 and 5 accredited courses and is currently developing our level 7 course of the assessment of dyscalculia. She is an outstanding tutor and assessor of those with possible Dyscalculia/Maths difficulties. She has extensive knowledge and experience on the topic of Dyscalculia and is active in engaging in the latest developments in this area. She is a strong advocate for high quality teaching and assessment of Maths difficulties, and this is consistently evident in her practice. She has been kind enough to share her expertise with myself and others to develop our skills too. I have no doubt in recommending her for registration and know that she will support individuals very effectively. Yours sincerely, Lynn Lovell Head of Professional Practice British Dyslexia Association

  • Testimonial from a client

    I support many young people with maths but Violet has is one of the most interesting. I have been working with her for 2 years and have learned a great deal from her about the difficulties some children experience with maths learning. Brenda has been tutoring my daughter Violet since January 2021. Violet has struggled to understand the comprehension of numbers. Brenda has helped develop her numeracy and number sense using numicon and number track and many other tools to help her visually understand numbers addition and subtraction she has struggled with multiplication and fractions but Brenda has guided her using tools and her invaluable experience in teaching for violet to understand numeracy. We honestly can’t thank Brenda enough for her tutoring she has changed violets life and we will forever be grateful for her help. Kindest Regards Charmaine
