An initial consultation to meet the child and parent(s) or carer(s) is recommended to gain as full as possible a perspective on the area for intervention. The visit may include some opportunities to work with your child in activities (such as rhyme recognition as a reading skill) to gauge their skill level and to inform further interventions.
This meeting also provides a chance for your child and I to get to know each other. I would usually do the initial visit at home and then work with the child at home or in another suitable setting (such as school). Subsequent sessions would typically last one hour.
A minimum of 6 weeks (a half-term period) involvement is recommended to gain insight and to reap results. Further involvement can be discussed and planned, as requested.
I can travel to your home or school in the local area. I am also willing to travel further afield upon special request.
My fees in the home setting: one-hour individual teaching sessions are charged at £35.00 per hour.
My rates for working with individuals or groups of children in schools are subject to discussion with the Head teacher.
I am committed to helping children whatever their situation and in some circumstances I can work at a reduced rate in order to ensure children who need help are not excluded.
