Tuition is on a one-to-one basis where pupils work on individually designed programmes, tailored to their difficulties and taught to their strengths.
These are conducted in a friendly and encouraging manner and are made as interesting as possible.
Progress is carefully monitored and re-assessment of reading and spelling ages is undertaken when it is thought to be necessary.
Some tutors are also qualified to assess pupils. Full diagnostic assessments or a screening assessments are available on request.
