Testimonials

“Sharon has been working with our 8yr old son for approximately 6-months now, since his dyslexia diagnosis in the Spring of 2019.  When he started with her we didn’t know just how much he didn’t know.  Gaps in his phonics, spelling and reading / writing ability were clear.  But Sharon identified that he also couldn’t sequence – he didn’t know the alphabet, days of the week, months of the year, orders of meals in a day etc.  The difference Sharon has made in those 6-months is exceptional.  Her enthusiasm, positivity and nurturing approach to helping our son learn his differences is above and beyond what we expected.  As a family Sharon has helped us to understand dyslexia and ensure that we are doing the very best for our boy, both at home and in conjunction with his school.”

“My son is 8 and started seeing Sharon in February 2019. His needs are complex and prior to starting lessons with Sharon he could write no more than a couple of very simple words. It’s not been an easy journey and one that I am sure will need to continue for a long time but Sharon has changed my son’s life! He can now read so much more confidently as well as being able to write sentences, as a result his confidence at school has increased and he is more vocal in the classroom. Sharon is thorough and methodical in her approach and in the early days it was tough, but she persevered and never gave up on our son. I would recommend her without hesitation!”

“Sharon was highly recommended and assessed my daughter for dyslexia. Sharon seemed to ‘get’ her almost immediately and developed a wonderful rapport. She provided us with a comprehensive report, full of information and practical advice which helped to support my daughter at home and in getting more support from school. Sharon even identified possible DCD and visual stress/tracking difficulties which have all subsequently been diagnosed. Her help has been invaluable in supporting my daughter and I’m so glad we found her.”

“We felt at ease with Sharon within minutes. The tests my son took were fun and carried out in a relaxed manner, whilst getting the best out of the child. Her reports are extremely detailed and her additional ad hoc advice and suggestions were very welcomed. Sharon is a remarkable person, not only extremely knowledgeable in her field, but a genuinely caring individual, who I believe went above and beyond in the service she provided to us.”

Dyslexia assessments and reports

“With the dyslexia report Sharon gave us, we were able to negotiate certain aids at school to help L even further. Her confidence has now recovered and L can cope with whatever is given to her. Sharon is supportive and goes out of her way to be helpful. I feel she genuinely cares about her students and would highly recommend her services.”

“Once again you have stepped in to support with information how best to identify S’s needs as she approaches the most important time in her educational life with GCSEs. This has been invaluable to me and more importantly to S’s motivation, education and learning.”

Teaching

“Sharon has used our son’s specific interests to get him reading and writing, from cooking to plastics. I feel this is a particularly clever way to get the most out of a ‘reluctant reader’. We have no hesitation in recommending Sharon.”
