Specialist Tuition

Building self-esteem, confidence and overcoming issues such as anger, concentration and many more.

Experience shows that sometimes when a child is not performing as they should at school there can be a number of reasons for this apart from academic ability. Some pupils score well on the cognitive and performance tests but teachers report that they are below average at school. This can be due to their self-belief and other possible issues such as bullying, concentration span and anger issues to name but a few. In cases where there can be no academic reason found for this lack of progress, therapy sessions are most useful. Not only do they get to the route of the problem but they change the way your child thinks and feels about themselves. N.L.P techniques are used to raise self-esteem and confidence. Hypnotherapy can also be used with children where appropriate to instil this self-belief. Parents can be present in these sessions if preferred. Sessions can also help your child to deal with bullying, anger issues and concentration issues. Other issues such as bed wetting, phobis, fears, nightmares, thumb sucking and any other habitual behaviour can be dealt with in just two or three sessions.

Specialist Assessment, Teaching and Learning aimed at children 4 years old to adult

Jill spent many years as a Class Teacher and Special Needs Teacher in primary and secondary education, working with pupils and students with Moderate to Severe learning difficulties.
She then trained as a Specialist Teacher in Dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties including Autism and ADHD.
Jill has worked for an education authority for the past 10 years in this role as well as being a Senior Manager. She writes workshops and training which she delivers to teachers and SENCOs and is an advisor to SENCOs and class teachers working in schools. She has developed various teaching programmes and courses, which have been well received in schools.

Jill now wants to be able to pass this knowledge on to parents, adults and children in order to help them reach their full potential and give them strategies to overcome their difficulties. She does not provide traditional tutoring; rather she offers a Specialist Service where teaching and learning is delivered to an outstanding level. Jill will unpick the difficulty and put a programme in place that will be successful.
