specialist support for children and young people ages 4-16

I support children and young people with specific or complex needs in order to increase their confidence, improve on their self-esteem and engage with their learning - particularly when they are finding the school environment challenging.  I'm passionate that every young person should have the opportunity to achieve, whatever their difficulty. 

I advocate for the importance of individuals to learn about their strengths as well as their challenges in order to hopefully enable one to inform the other.   It is crucial when a young person is struggling that everyone is working together and are fully knowledgeable of the young person's voice, specific needs and background. 

Often it is about looking at the bigger picture and 'connecting the dots' for everyone. 

Literacy.  I believe it is the most important skill that should be acquired during a young person's educational journey.  It opens the door to everything else, and without adequate literacy levels, learning becomes extremely challenging.  I'm super passionate and super skilled at supporting those with literacy difficulties and dyslexia and so do get in touch if you'd like to talk over what I do to help.

Language & communication difficulties

For children and young people - tuition and mentoring for their individual needs.   

For parents - you are your child's best advocate and I provide support and advocacy to provide knowledge when feeling unclear or confused by the education system.

For schools - often a fresh look at a situation - connecting the dots between home, school pastoral and SEN teams, external services and most importantly, the young person.

Being dyslexic myself, I know personally some of the struggles pupils encounter, and how their learning, behaviour, confidence, and self-esteem can be affected. Despite receiving support through school, many children still require that bit extra - the right support for their individual needs. For some it is about filling some gaps in their literacy learning, for others it is ongoing academic, behavioural and emotional support. Whatever the reason it is usually initially about mindset, dealing with their anxieties, and increasing self-esteem and confidence.

“Amanda is very engaging with the children. Very patient and professional. Provides excellent lesson structure and always made lessons fun. Amanda, always thinks of your child and how to bring the best out of them. I would highly recommend  AJC Tutoring.”

"Amanda has been amazing working with my 14 year old.....she has delivered some video chat lessons and has been really patient with my unwilling son who is not interested in doing any school work. Her skills for dealing with his Verbal Processing Dyslexia have been brilliant..."

Mrs M

“Amanda was extremely

helpful, not just for our boys but us as well. Explaining what was needed and finding different ways in which the boys could learn. Was all the extra work worth it? Absolutely!

Both boys were successful in their assessments and Amanda can take a lot of credit for their success."

Is your child struggling to keep up with their learning?

Have you concerns about their progress?

Has school the resources to meet their needs? 

Would they benefit from some individual or small group support?

If so, please do get in touch for an informal chat about how I can help.

Learning to read is one of the most important skills that children need to gain during their school journey. 

Without an adequate level of reading, children have difficulty accessing the curriculum which often leads to low self-esteem, anxiety, challenging behaviour and school disengagement.  

If your child is struggling with their literacy skills, whatever their age, please get in touch because I can help.
