Frances Green has worked in education for over 25 years and has also been a member of the Board of Governors of a local Primary School for 10 years, being Vice Chair or Chair for 8 years. She holds an MSc from Aberystwyth University and wrote her dissertation on the Changing Status of Adolescent Females in Post War Society – as reflected in the pages of their comics and magazines. This looked closely at adolescence and youth culture and changing expectations among teenage girls and was also the starting point for investigating teenagers and self esteem.

Research and experience

Frances has researched and written about teenagers and their learning, focusing in particular on their learning preferences and the effect these have on classroom performance, motivation and self esteem. She has conducted INSET days on Learning Styles in a number of schools and in 2010 was awarded a bursary to go to the USA, to visit schools and look at teaching and learning and to attend a conference on education and neuroscience focusing on the teenage brain in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

More recently Frances has been a learning mentor to a number of students who were underachieving and can report excellent outcomes from these one-to-one sessions. If you think your teenager would benefit from help with issues ranging from concentration and organisation to individually tailored, effective learning strategies contact her now.
