Meet Lee, Reading Development Consultant at Reading Solutions UK

Reading Development Consultant

Before becoming a Reading Development Consultant at Reading Solutions UK, what did you do?

I spent almost nine years teaching English as a second language at a school in Taiwan. I worked with children from the ages of three to sixteen and helped them develop their grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation, and introduced them to English literature and media.


What attracted you to the education sector?

Being able to directly influence a child’s education in a positive way and see their development over time. I particularly enjoyed seeing my students engage with other English speakers in a natural way.


How would you describe yourself in 3 words? 

Enthusiastic. Curious. Empathetic.


Tell us more about your role at Reading Solutions UK?

My role at Reading Solutions is to use my knowledge and experience to help teachers successfully implement Reading Plus in their schools, with the aim that students progress their reading skills.


What do you enjoy most about being a Reading Development Consultant?

What I really enjoy is being able to see each students’ reading development in real-time, and how that benefits their overall education.


When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy reading, listening to music and learning Chinese.


What was your favourite childhood book?

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.W Lewis


What piece of tech can you not live without and why?

I can’t live without my record player because listening to music is very important to me.


If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?

I’d like to be able to speak any language I was exposed to because I love travelling and having conversations with new people.
