All tutors are qualified Dyslexia Specialists who either hold the OCR Level 5 or Level 7 Diploma in Teaching Pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia).
We offer tuition on a Monday in Orpington Methodist Church and Tuesday in Keston Village Hall where we have a number of tutors. In addition, Julie also offers early morning, evening and weekend tuition at her home in Petts Wood.
If you are able to withdraw your child from school we have some early afternoon slots available and some before school availability as well.
During the first two sessions, the tutor will informally assess your child so that she can build an individualised Dyslexia programme. The findings will be looked at in a holistic manner by considering all aspects of the assessment alongside the learner's strengths, weaknesses, self-esteem, interests, motivation and learning preferences.
Although each learner's programme will be different there are some common features in all Dyslexia Programmes as follows:

Sarah Beard founder of Dyslexia Services is the most senior member of the team with over twenty years experience of tutoring children and adults and training others to do the same. Due to her varied timetable and other training and lecturing commitment, she is unable to offer regular weekly tuition but can offer a block of six sessions which can be delivered over 3 -12 weeks. This will suit students who need to address a specific literacy weakness or require some support with study skills, self-esteem, social skills, life skills or a particular numeracy topic. Sessions can be delivered at her home office in Orpington or through Skype.
