Hello! I’m Marian

I am a remedial therapist with a special interest in early reading development and teaching struggling readers in the foundation phase. I am very passionate about helping children learn to read no matter the obstacles in front of them.  I love my job because once a struggling reader starts to ‘get it’ their entire world starts to change. They grow in confidence and start to realise how capable they are.

I have worked for many years as a remedial therapist at a number of schools and am currently the Remedial Therapist Foundation Phase Consultant at Reddam Waterfall. I also run a successful private practise both in person and online. I started my company Raising Readers in 2009 and in addition to teaching reading one on one I provide literacy services (talks, workshops) to schools, parents and the wider community.

Along with working I am a Mom to 2 beautiful children. In my spare time I love to practise yoga, read, go for walks with my family and our adorable dog and go for holidays at the beach.
