Qualified Tutor gives 1-1 private help with reading and writing to anyone who has learning difficulties

Methodology

Each person is different - they learn at a different speed and in a different way.

I offer 1-1 private sessions with tailor made materials and activities to suit that particular person.

There is nothing so satisfying as to see someone be able to write their name for the first time or learn how to read a book to their own child!

Background

I am a qualified Tutor holding a Certificate in Education, along with being accepted to undertake a M.Ed.
I have been teaching in the UK for over 20 years before moving back home to Canada.
One of my most satisfying projects was to run and teach in a drop in centre, where people with any form of learning disability, could come and have 1-1 help in achieving their goals. The centre originally only opened three times a week, but, it became so popular that there was a need for it to open every day and also one evening a week.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

Twenty four hours notice must usually be given to cancel a lesson.
