For Students of all ages:
We offer a multi-sensory phonics programme for Primary and Junior aged children,
using games and activities within a structured educational approach, and Songbirds
Reading Book Scheme. There are 6 levels, and 6 books within each level.
Your child will begin to read, write and spell with understanding, and will grow in their
confidence and skills.
We would arrange an initial assessment/visit to find out the level your child is currently
working at, what their particular difficulties and needs are, and then we proceed from there.
Grammar and punctuation tutoring is also offered as a separate package, but some aspects
of grammar etc would be integrated into the phonics programme.
For children within the Middle School to High School range (who are struggling with
reading, writing and spelling), we offer the Fresh Starts reading and writing
programme which is also structured, multi-sensory, addressing reading, writing
and spelling and includes games and activities. There are 33 Modules, but we
start at the level that your child is currently working at and gradually move them forwards.
Children always enjoy the lessons because they are relaxed, fun and enabling.
Your child will progress in their skills and self-confidence.
Services are individualised for students who are studying at a higher level and need help in
a particular area, e.g. if they need help with GCSE work and study skills, we can assist
your child in this area too.
Within our services, we can also offer additional help and support to you, as parents,
by writing letters or reports to support your child at school, attending local school
teacher-parent meetings, visiting your child's school (if permission is given) and giving
guidance and support on your child's schooling issues.
There will be a charge of £30 per hour for these extra services.
We now also offer parent coaching, specifically designed for parents who have children with
specific learning difficulties, including videos and some one-to-one coaching for parents.
