Sarah- Louise initially completed a very thorough assessment
"When we met Sarah-Louise Jeffries our now 14yr old son had just been diagnosed with dyslexia and a number of other conditions that impacted on his ability to read, write, spell and understand. Since moving up to senior school he had gone from a happy confident, verbally, articulate child with a 100% attendance at junior school to a quiet, withdrawn child with anxiety who hated school and was fatigued all the time continually feeling sick and losing more and more time off school. Sarah- Louise initially completed a very thorough assessment listening both to us as parents and to Ricky about the difficulties he had, the problems lack of support had brought him and what he wanted her to help with. She also looked through his assessments and made her own assessments of his abilities and levels etc. Sarah-Louise used a range of multi-sensory approaches to aide learning and understanding. Our son was very anxious about anything related to learning due to fear of failure. â€‹ Each week, when we have arrived there has been a different selection of books, games etc, computer programmes for him to use and she always has ideas for things to use at home. We have bought several products she has recommended to use at home. Two months after meeting Sarah-Louise, our eldest son, who was disabled and lived at home, died suddenly and unexpectedly, she has been the most tremendous support to all of us especially to our son whom she is tutoring as he was additionally vulnerable. When we had our son's diagnosis we were advised to apply for a EHCP we made a parental application and Sarah-Louise has supported us in this also resulting in a EHCP being issued and a change of school. Our experience of using Sarah-Louise to tutor our son has been an extremely positive one and we have no hesitation in recommending her as a tutor, not only is she a excellent tutor in our experience but a very caring individual with a brilliant sense of humour. Our son has made improvements in his learning, is now much more confident, is enjoying learning again and really looks forward to his sessions."
