Specialist SEN Tutoring

Targeted teaching programmes delivered by specialists who understand the very specific needs and learning styles of dyslexic and dyscalculic pupils, as well as those with other learning difficulties such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). These children are often not able to fully access the curriculum in a classroom setting. Our programmes are designed to give these children the tools and strategies to enable them to learn and succeed.

We provide formal Educational Psychologist assessments, potentially allowing children the possibility of extra time and access arrangements. We also offer standardised testing as well as informal assessments pinpointing markers for dyslexia and dyscalculia and associated features of these. In many cases, a formal diagnosis of dyslexia is not necessary, and an informal assessment may be sufficient to form the basis of a learning programme.


Research has shown a direct link between nutrition, the gut and cognitive function. Hidden allergies and intolerances as well as mineral and vitamin deficiencies can have a significant impact on focus, memory, processing and organisational skills.

Nutrition consultations includes a full case history, recommendations for functional testing and a full report based on the findings. This includes a detailed dietary plan and supplement recommendations.

Educational Psychologist

Educational Psychologists' reports examine a child's individual learning profile and can be used to diagnose specific learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia or features of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). These may include slow processing issues and concentration difficulties. These reports may be used to develop an individual learning plan for access arrangements and for supporting Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP) applications.

What Our Clients Say

Vicky has worked with my daughter for a year to support her with the challenges she faces with her learning. Vicky is extremely personable, patient and kind. My daughter feels safe and comfortable working with Vicky. She instils confidence and self-belief through her teaching methods. Vicky helped prepare my daughter in Year 6 for going on to her chosen school and has been instrumental in supporting her outside of the classroom to ensure she reaches her full potential at school. We are very fortunate to have found Vicky and would highly recommend her to any family looking for a specialist tutor.

Abi M

It's been an absolute privilege having Justin as my son's tutor! From the very first session he was very professional, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. Justin has a great bank of teaching techniques. My son has absolutely loved being taught by Justin! The challenges brought by dyslexia (and, sadly, failure to a certain extent by the educational system) made my son's learning and English GCSE preparation very, very difficult. My son has now gained knowledge and confidence - to me, his parent, that's priceless!! We are massively grateful for Justin's time and endless effort. He's a person of integrity. I give Justin my highest recommendation

Subject: EFL, Outcome: Entry to independent School for September 2015
Our Client needed a good Tutor desperately for their two children after moving from China to the UK permanently. The young boy (William) aged 8 had failed three entry assessments for local independent schools when they arrived at Easter. His English level and confidence was low. The boy reacted brilliantly to Justin's tuition and has come a long way in a short time. In less than two months Justin has turned William around and he has just passed a second chance entry assessment at one of the very good schools he previously failed at. Thank you Justin!
