Sarah J Myhill University of Buckingham, UK
Sarah Myhill is a Specialist Dyslexia Tutor and Lecturer at the University of Buckingham. She is a qualified architect and lighting designer but had a career change in 2015 due to some vision problems and achieved a postgraduate qualification in Language, Literacies and Dyslexia in Higher Education from University of Birmingham. She also holds Associate Membership of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA FE/HE) and is part of a working group carrying out research for the Executive Committee of the Association of Dyslexia Specialists in Higher Education (ADSHE).
She has brought her creativity and visual training to bear on her current role by avidly researching a wide range of evidenced-based strategies and presenting them to students in a visual and dynamic way, mostly in the form of workshops, delivered 1:1 or to groups. With experience Sarah has seen what techniques really work and condensed the information into digestible strategies that are easily absorbed and put into practice to help students achieve their academic potential.
