Meet the Team

 

David Morgan

Founder, CEO

I have a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters in Education. Before becoming a literacy specialist, I worked as a business manager and before that a cavalry officer in the British Army. They say variety is the spice of life! My favorite things are all forms of music, skiing, anything that floats on water and times with my family, preferably somewhere warm.

Arunima Amar

Program Advisor

I did my degree in French and Linguistics at Oxford and love all things language-y. On the Easyread team, I support parents and children using the system and also create content for our social media. My hobbies include the constant pursuit of good food, good books and a nice cup of tea.

Amy Bickers

Program Advisor, Schools Liaison

I have a BA in English and Creative Writing, and started my career as a Teaching Assistant in London before completing my PGCE in English at Oxford. I now spend my days supporting parents and children doing Easyread, as well as delivering a training course for teachers and TAs. In my spare time I enjoy cooking for friends as well as dabbling in artistic endeavours when the creative mood strikes!

Eleanor Broome

Program Advisor

I grew up in New Zealand but now live in Oxford where I did my degree in French literature. When I am not chatting with Easyread parents and learners, I like to go on dog walks, get food with friends and become tangled in wool as I attempt to knit and crochet.

Lydia Cockburn

Program Manager

I studied French and Linguistics here in Oxford and now support the children and parents using the Easyread system to make sure they reach their goals! Outside office hours I can be found tooting on a trombone or frolicking on football fields (sometimes with Matt!)

Sarah Forrest DM Ed Program Manager

Sarah Forrest

Program Advisor

I have a B.A. in Spanish Lit from Yale University. I help oversee our children’s literacy programs and also dabble in copywriting, marketing, training, and content creation at DM Ed. I live with my family in Alabama, where I love to eat chocolate chips, sit in the sunshine and sing. Not (usually) all at once.

Akash Nikolas

I studied English in college and I enjoy reading and writing about films and pop culture. I encourage your kids to tell me all about their favorite movies, TV shows and video games!

Katie Selwood

Program Advisor, Schools Liaison

I have a BA (hons) in Primary Education from the University of Brighton and started my career in teaching in Oxfordshire. With a passion for improving literacy, I love supporting both parents and teachers to improve outcomes for children with reading difficulties. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, going for long walks in the countryside and attempting to bake!

Laser-focused

Laser Focus

We will not rest until every child has access to Trainertext visual phonics. We are single-minded in our aim to eradicate childhood illiteracy.

Innovation

We do not tread well-worn paths. We push the boundaries to find success for every child, using adaptive technology and tailored personal support.

It's Personal

Our purpose is our passion. We care deeply about the families we work with, and their children’s educational outcomes. A lot is at stake.

Child-First

Everything we do is for children’s learning and enjoyment. Kids like to play to learn (us too)! Nothing boring leaves our design studio.
