What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for 20 years and have taught in the primary, secondary and FE sector. I began my career as a French teacher but retrained as a dyslexia specialist teacher some 14 years ago.

My own personal experiences as a mum have given me a clear understanding and insight into the impact that literacy and handwriting difficulties can have on overall learning and self-belief. My own two children struggled greatly to acquire good handwriting and literacy skills, but through hard work and support have now started to thrive in school and are finally achieving their potential.

I run highly structured multi sensory reading and spelling sessions. I also offer handwriting groups where children are guided through a unique, 30 - step handwriting programme which has so far been 100% effective. Children's confidence and motivation greatly improve and written exams become easier and more legible.
How much do you charge?
Most sessions are between £30 per hour for group sessions and £40 per hour for 1-1 but prices vary so please contact me for more information.
