Working with Adults and the community

Good literacy skills are an essential part of everyday life. Rebecca has a proven track record of helping adults who need to improve their literacy skills for a variety of different purposes including Higher Education and Access Courses. Delivered in 1 to 1 and small groups, Rebecca creates challenging yet enjoyable sessions where learners are able to develop their literacy and gain confidence.

Rebecca also delivers Creative Writing Courses in the evenings in various locations across the Southampton area. These evening classes are designed to foster a love of writing, develop skills and technique, collaborate and share with others whilst enjoying the process of thinking and writing creatively.

Due to her passion and dedication for teaching reading, Rebecca also offers FREE reading events in the Hampshire area. Often delivered at local libraries and community centres these events are designed to support parents/carers with teaching reading and creating a reading culture at home, even if adults at home are not confident with literacy themselves.

Please see the NEWS section of the website for availability on the Adult Education Classes and where and when to find the next Reading Information session.


‘ I failed my GCSE in English Language a few years ago but needed it to get on the college course I wanted to do. Rebecca tutored me once a week for three months, with her help I was able to pass my GCSE and get onto the course.’
