Information about Anne
Specialist teacher in dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, ASD.
Does your child:
struggle with the little joining words but not the big ones?
leave words out altogether?
lack fluency in their reading?
find it difficult to understand what they have read?
seem much better some days than other days?
I trained as a teacher in 1985, although my specific interest in helping children with reading difficulties brought me into the world of tutoring 15 years ago.
I became aware that many parents were having difficulty getting the right help for their children in school, mainly due to lack of time and specialist knowledge. However,I found that by devoting a relatively short time to these children on a one-to-one basis that they could learn to read well and that this then had a hugely positive effect on their ability to do well at school.
I was delighted recently when one of my 11 year old pupils(probably dyslexic, although undiagnosed) increased her reading age by 2.5 years in just 6 months, increased her maths scores from 35% to 75%(she could now read the questions). She was taken out of one-to-one classes at school because, as the school said, "she doesn`t need them anymore".
I really enjoy tutoring because it is a pleasure to see children who have struggled at school for so long start to do really well.
I am also a trained Davis Dyslexia facilitator. The Davis system is the world`s only method for correcting dyslexia. Once a child has learnt the Davis methods he/she will usually use them throughout their life.
In addition to my specialist work,I teach English and Maths to children who are not having difficulties learning to read, but require some support or extra confidence in their schoolwork.
I also have extensive experience preparing children for 11+ exams.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I specialise in teaching children who are struggling to read and to spell, although I usually find that these children need support in their maths as well.
I have a proven track record for improving children`s reading ages (often with dramatic results for the rest of their schoolwork) and getting children reading for pleasure, probably one of the most important factors in success at school.This works equally well for dyslexic and non-dyslexic children.
All the children I tutor find that their levels of confidence increase considerably as a result of one-to-one tutoring.

Feedback For Anne (12)
We used Anne last year to help our 10 year old son with his secondary school entrance exams. We were very impressed with Anne`s diligent approach. Anne went over and above what was expected from her as a tutor. She made every effort to maximise my sons chances and after using a number of tutors previously I only wish i had found Anne sooner. I would highly recommend her services. Thank you.
Anne was always responsive to our requests and went out of her way to try many different methods to ensure that our daughter was further engaging with both comprehension and essay writing
Lovely and professional.
Anne is an excellent tutor who really understands the issues my child is facing. Anne has lots of experience and truly cares about the student.
After just a few visits with Anne, our son (aged 6) has shown enthusiasm to reading which we have not seen before. A visit to the library resulted in him excitedly choosing 9 books and reading 4 there and the rest finished within 2 days. I caught him reading in bed one evening unprompted from us! Hes also showing a better focus of attention to his school homework.
I would highly recommend Anne. My 10 year old daughter found her sessions beneficial and enjoyable. It was a very positive experience. My daughter received 3 offers from highly competitive private schools.
Mrs Anne is an excellent tutor. She has tutored our almost 7-year old girl three times and we are very satisfied with the results and with the way she approaches the tutoring. We can only highly recommend Anne to anybody in need of a top of the line tutor.
Anne is amazing. We are really happy with her.
Anne is a great Tutor who knows how to work with younger children. Very attentive and understanding of our child`s needs
We have only had Anne a few times but my son has taken to her immediately. She has a caring and informative approach to tutoring as well as doing the job in hand. My son is doing well and looks forward to his weekely lessons
Anne has been helping my daughter for about 2 months now to help her with math. Within 2 weeks, my daughter got a Pupil Of the Week for her outstanding improvement in math! Very patient, very good.
The best tutor for my children.
Shw always try to understand and recognize their needs and pros. and cons.
