Specialist tuition for dyslexia and autism based in Derby and Nottingham...

"I found the sessions with Sara really useful. She took the time to understand how I learn best and I liked that the sessions were visual and practically based which suited my style of learning. Sara was very friendly and approachable."

"My child found the lessons fun, interactive and relaxed. They liked the calm environment. As a parent I felt confident that they were learning without the pressures of school for them such as crowds and noise."

About Me

I am a fully certified specialist dyslexia tutor. As an experienced educator of more than 20 years experience, I started this journey as a  result of teaching very intelligent students with specific learning  difficulties who were not achieving their full potential.

My education career

I taught in further education for 17 years after completing a PGCE Further and have qualified teacher learning status. I gained my MSc and BSc in Biological sciences at Bath University. I have a fully enhanced DBS. I am a member of the Society of Education and Training which is the leading teaching association for lecturers. I completed the postgraduate diploma Teaching learners with Dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties and barriers to Literacy this year which gives me Specialist SpLD tutor status. I have been a private tutor since 2019.

What I offer

I offer high quality face to face learning with monthly reviews and feedback with set goals to improve a student’s learning within the comfort of the student's home.

As a specialist in biology I can also offer GCSE and A level Biology tuition with a focus on SEN teaching.

I specialise teaching students from year 6 onwards. There are options for online tutoring and a free twenty minute consultation.

Other Specific Learning Difficulties

In addition to teaching students with dyslexia, I am qualified to teach students with autism as I have been a mentor to University students with autism and a SEN teaching assistant.
