About the lesson

If you or your child is struggling to read or spell I can help you in 5- 10 sessions. As a specialist teacher and coach with 30 years experience, I use an approach which is easy to follow, quick to learn and best of all it is fun!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in Reading and Spelling. I work with many students with dyslexia.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Honours Degree from Southampton University, a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and an OCR Certificate Level 5 in SPLD (Dyslexia)

- How much do you charge?

Please contact me to arrange an initial consultation, for which there is no charge. We can then discuss your child's needs and decide on the optimum number of sessions, depending on his/her specific requirements. With reading, many students achieve rapid results in as few as 6-8 sessions. You can also learn the spelling strategy in 6 sessions and feel confident to start improving your spelling with no extra homework. I also offer follow up support for parents.

- Where do you teach?

I am located in Hardwick, 4 miles west of Cambridge close to the A14, A428 and M11. Easy access from Huntingdon, Bury St Edmunds, Royston, Newmarket, Ely and Saffron Walden. Private parking is available. I use a quiet room set aside just for teaching and also have a room where parents may wait if they wish.

- When are you available?

Term Times Tuesday - Friday 10 -7. School Holidays Tuesday - Friday 10 - 5. NB Schools will often agree to a child coming out of school for specialist help.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

7 years to Adults

- Do you have a personal message for students?

You can become a fluent reader and learn to spell any word confidently. And it is easier and more fun than you might think!

About Helen

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught in the classroom in state and private schools for 25 years with Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 children. I then worked for 5 years as a Dyslexia specialist in school working one to one with children up to the age of 13. For the last 2 years I have been coaching children and adults of all ages who are currently experiencing difficulties with reading, spelling or writing. I have a unique combination of skills, training and experience and have a caring and thoughtful approach.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an Enhanced CRB Disclosure

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

PATOSS (Professional Association Of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am currently coaching people between the ages of 8 and 51. They are all different. Typically they have been using learning techniques that don't work effectively for them. It is very rewarding to watch them begin to read, spell and write with confidence.
