I am a qualified Specialist Teacher and offer tutoring for students with dyslexia, dyspraxia or dyscalculia.
A dyslexia assessment is only the start. To make the most of the report I offer tutoring, working with students from 5-18, to fill gaps and address difficulties, and to stretch and challenge.
I'll teach you how to spell, how to increase your reading accuracy, how to write essays, how to make numbers more understandable, how to remember what you read, how to recall your times tables, typing skills, how to manage your working memory, how to improve your creative writing, understand grammar - and always get your full stops in the right place!
Each session is planned based on a person’s individual needs. I also try and plan around interests (for children) or workplace/study skills (for adults). Before tutoring, I will carry out some informal assessments so that I know where to start teaching from – these will also help form the basis of targets, which will be fully explained to you/your child. I teach using multi-sensory methods, which help to aid engagement and recall.
A typical session will look like this:
Areas that we may cover include reading, writing, maths, spelling, phonics, phonological awareness, sequencing, study skills, reading comprehension, memory strategies and creative writing, although if you have something specific you would like to learn, contact me and I will try and help!
Here are some examples of activities I have delivered online…
Pricing - £45 per hour.
Sessions last 50 minutes, with a 5-minute time for feedback at the end of the session if required (this can also be done via email).
At the current time, I am only offering online tutoring sessions and I do have a waiting list for after school slots.
Come for a screening - £50, and you get £25 towards an assessment

I also offer general EYFS, KS1, KS2 & KS3 tutoring. This tutoring can include subjects such as English, Maths and Science. Unlike the specialist tuition, we will not work on targets and instead work on National Curriculum objectives.
Pricing - £35 per hour
