« Ruth Lampitt was a great teacher for our 7 year old son. We went to South Africa for a longer period and we wanted our son to go to the international school there. But he did not speak English at all! Ruth prepared him in a very nice way. Within a few months he could make himself understood and he could execute assignments. Her lessons also matched with interests and his age. We are very grateful to Ruth, thanks to her our adventure was a success! »

Methodology

My teaching method is a three part method:
First, I develop an individual profile by talking to parents and the child and administering an initial assessment. I learn the child’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as their likes and dislikes so that I can create a tailored learning program that meets my student’s needs and utilises their strengths and interests.

My lessons are:
• systematic, so that learning builds on itself and provides a strong foundation.
• Interactive, with activities that engage the student and make them an active participant in lessons.
• Discovery based, where introductions to new concepts are designed so that students can discover patterns and exceptions themselves and thereby reach a secure understanding.
• Student-centred, where activities are designed based on my student’s strengths and interests, as well as their current level of ability.

Lastly, I involve the student in their learning journey so that they can take ownership of their learning and build confidence, through reflecting on their learning, goal setting and nurturing a growth mindset.

Background

I am a qualified primary school teacher and certified dyslexia specialist with more than 15 years' experience.

My passion for helping children learn how to read started when I was a newly qualified teacher and my nephew had just finished Year 2, but was unable to read at all. I spent every weekday of the summer holidays teaching him how to read. I discovered that, although he has severe ADHD and dyslexia, his capacity to learn was tremendous when he had one-to-one attention in a safe and quiet environment.
My nephew increased his reading level by 6 levels during that summer and started year 3 with renewed confidence in his ability to learn. He went from being the little boy in the corner who spent all day painting to keep him happy, to an active and happy learner in the classroom.

Since then, I have worked in schools all over the world and helping every child acquire confident reading skills has been my primary focus. I specialise in teaching children with:
• Dyslexia
• ADHD/ADD
• English as an Additional Language (EAL)
• Any child who struggles with reading

Ruth taught my grandson Callum to read, he has a diagnosis of ADHD, Autism and Dyslexia, and had found it very difficult to learn to read at school. She made her own learning aids and made learning fun and non threatening ,displaying patience throughout for him. she also taught me how to help him as well and he quickly made progress which gave us many hours of fun and enjoyment. She transformed his life and gave him confidence to achieve in his other subjects at school.
