'Teaching individual children with or without dyslexia provides an ideal opportunity to identify what motivates them to learn. I enjoy discovering, with the child, gaps in their knowledge and understanding; helping them to take control of the way they think and learn. When they take ownership of their own learning it isn't long before self-esteem, confidence and achievement improve. Finding out how and what motivates you to learn is a life changing process.
Tutoring individuals after an assessment enables me to provide targetted multi-sensory support and confirm or check the report findings. Tutoring programmes are therefore continually adjusted to improve their effectiveness.
It is amazing how a few tutoring sessions can boost a child's confidence and enable them to 'shine' in class and change teacher expectation. I remember how I moved up a set in Science because my brother simply gave me some time and attention! Small inputs can produce rapid and dramatic improvements'
