The type of tuition
Tuition is chosen depending on the type of dyslexia experienced by the student. No one method is exclusively, used but the main programmes are Alpha to Omega, Read America's Phono Graphix, Step by Step, and Montessori. A comprehensive selection of multisensory equipment is available.
The study room
The study room provides a homely and safe environment, with a relaxing ambience where students work on a one-to-one basis with their tutor, away from the stresses of school, work and peer pressure.
In my experience, I have found that occasionally students need support with dealing with the emotional difficulties they have faced due to not being able to read and write in school or work life. I know that a student’s confidence and self-esteem play a crucial part in their quality of life and learning.
All about Lessons
Lessons are available from Monday to Friday during and after school. I follow the local school holidays, although continuation during summer holidays is an option.
Students usually attend for one to two hours per week.
For primary aged children and severely dyslexic students, we encourage tuition during normal school hours, as dyslexic children must work twice as hard to achieve and may be too tired after school. I encourage and highlight progress, with feedback during each lesson and regular re-appraisals are carried out to show the student’s progress.
