Specialist Dyslexia Tuition with a Specialist Teacher
Information sheets to download
We are a small team offering with a few tutors who work from their homes in Orpington and Petts Wood. All tutors are qualified Dyslexia Specialists holding an OCR Level 5 Diploma in Teaching Students with SpLD( Dyslexia) or a Level 7 in Teaching and Assessing. During the first two sessions, the tutor will informally assess your child so that she can build an individualised Dyslexia programme. The findings will be looked at in a holistic manner by considering all aspects of the assessment alongside the learner's strengths, weaknesses, self-esteem, interests, motivation and learning preferences.
Although each learner's programme will be different there are some common features in all Dyslexia Programmes as follows:
All programmes will be structured, cumulative and multi-sensory.
Lessons will incorporate a range of activities including IT and games to provide over learning.
In the majority of cases, a phonics programme will be followed such as Alpha to Omega.
Underpinning cognitive weaknesses will be identified and strategies for improvement taught.
Metacognition will form an important part of the programme and will help learners to develop their own strategies and approaches.
Handwriting and touch typing can be incorporated if required.
Study skills will form an integral part of most of the programmes for older learners.
Homework is recommended but is optional.
Fee £45 per hour with Dyslexia Specialist Tutor
