Ruth Grigg

“Qualified Dyslexia tutor; private tuition and on-line tuition.”

My tutoring approach

I teach phonics, spelling, reading and writing to Dyslexic and other students with specific learning difficulties. I use a multi-sensory and structured approach and those struggling with literacy. Lessons comprise phonics, spelling and reading and writing skills. The lessons are well planned, interactive lessons, including activities and games, starting at the level the child or pupil is currently at and progressing forwards.

All lessons include games and activities, are fun and interactive. shared over the internet.
