Learning difficulties and dyslexia tutoring

One-to-One Tuition and Mentoring

We offer specialist tuition for children and young people with learning difficulties. The one-to-one sessions are delivered by qualified specialist dyslexia teachers in a suitable setting, both in person and remotely. If we come to you, we may charge a little extra for travel, but we will discuss this with you during the booking process.

Adults and children can access specialist dyslexia teacher and mentoring support. We give individual attention and ensure the pace of learning suits the student. We focus the support on the areas that need improvement by utilizing the individual strengths, learning style and existing coping strategies. The specialist support is based on a tailored Individual Learning Plan (ILP) developed after the initial evaluation of the student’s needs and strengths and established goals.

We use a range of effective multisensory techniques focusing on:

  • Reading – reading accuracy, speed, fluency and comprehension
  • Spelling
  • Writing – handwriting neatness, fluency and style, writing speed, content and technical accuracy
  • Grammar and specialist vocabulary
  • Listening skills
  • Auditory processing skills
  • Memory
  • Short term memory
  • Phonological awareness
  • Numeracy
  • Study Skills and revision techniques
  • Organisation and time management
  • Communication skills
  • Independence
  • Resilience
  • Self-confidence
  • Problem solving
  • Employability skills

We use recognised interventions to support individual needs, including Alpha to Omega and Active Literacy Kit by Dyslexia Action. The Alpha to Omega programme offers practical help in teaching reading, writing and spelling to adults and children with learning difficulties, including dyslexia. It is a carefully structured programme which closely follows the normal pattern of phonological language acquisition. The Active Literacy Kit is designed to support all children aged 7 years and over who experience literacy difficulties, whether dyslexic or not. The programme offers a series of timed exercises which build the foundation skills needed for automatic, fluent and accurate reading and spelling. Carefully structured activities cover phonological awareness, word recognition, phonics, graphic knowledge and spelling.

Children

We can work with your school or college by designing a framework of intervention, which can be reinforced by teachers/teaching assistants following a short, free training session with us. You can take your child out of school for tuition if agreed with the school. This is classed as an ‘approved educational activity’ which will not affect attendance figures.

Would totally recommend Develop us, made my son feel at ease. Having the assessment done in the comfort of his own surroundings I think was a big help. My son actually enjoy his day and didn’t seem stressed or worried about the assessments. Craig was so helpful and still is a month on sending me useful links etc. Thank you so much.

I recently had an assessment as an adult for dyspraxia or Developmental Co-ordination Disorder after self-referring. Craig was brilliant throughout. Great to deal with, understanding of my needs, and very supportive. He gave me a comprehensive assessment and communicated to me the whole process in an easy to understand manner. The final report was well written and I now have the evidence I need to get support in the workplace. I would highly recommend him and Develop Us

Craig is very patient and maintained really excellent communication throughout the whole process. During his assessment he was professional and patient, and pulled out all the stops to get his report to us ASAP. Highly recommended.

Craig has been a fantastic support with my son, Craig offers a wealth of knowledge, experience and great advice. Craig is enthusiastic and has a great deal of patience with the people he supports, I would have no hesitation in recommending his services and wish him all the best in the future.

Craig has been a Godsend to myself and my husband and my eldest daughter who was diagnosed. I am glad I asked for Craig’s professional opinion on the matter.  I am glad he did the assessment and we got the outcome of what we have thought it was for a while now. Thank you Craig.

I am a student who has been receiving support and tutoring from Craig since November 2018. Since receiving tutorial support from Craig, I have progressed onto high-level courses and an access course which has helped with my studies, knowledge and work. Craig has shown me support and helped make my course work manageable. I feel that I have been able to turn to Craig with any question or doubt and have received nothing but clarity and guidance. Without Craig’s help and support I do not think I would have the courage and ability to complete the courses and progress to higher levels. I have had support off Craig for a variety of courses and with work advise.

I feel that Craig has given me the confidence to take steps in my life that I would not have made on my own. Craig has not only been friendly and supporting, but has also been very professional, reliable and organised with the help he has given me.
