1 to 1 tuition
These handwriting lessons give your child the individual care and attention they need to excel at handwriting.
Does your child feel that ‘fixing’ their handwriting is something that is impossible? Furthermore, hearing this breaks your heart as you do not know what to do. And you are feeling at your wits end.
Do you fear people will be judging your son or daughter if as an adult they have handwriting of a child? Writing which is messy and unreadable.
Has their writing always been bad but now it is getting worse, it is practically illegible. Are the school raising this as an issue? As a result, you have been trying to talk to your child about it and now they are getting very upset.
Is their handwriting messy because they can’t see the pencil tip? In addition, they might also be saying they are becoming tired when writing.
Has your child’s school said he/she ‘will get there’? Yet you are still waiting. Finally you think it is time to take some action yourself as watching them struggle on is no longer an option.
Are you looking for a someone who can build your child’s confidence when writing? Who can also show them how to write without them being put off? Helping them achieve the handwriting clarity that you desperately know that they can do.

All individual 1:1 handwriting lessons happen in person either in your home or at their school. Every handwriting lesson will last for 45 minutes. The frequency is decided by you. As Mum or Dad you’ll know what is best for your child. To assist your decision, weekly sessions act as a great kick-starter to handwriting success.
In the handwriting 1 to 1 lessons all the resources are supplied meaning you do not have to do any preparation work. Current research is suggesting that the best way to improve handwriting is by working on a combination of fine motor hand skills and handwriting. This is what happens within my lessons. In addition in-between the visits handwriting ‘games’ are often left and worksheets are given for your child to continue to progress when I am not there.
This tuition is sold in lesson blocks. Occupational therapy research suggests handwriting lessons need to be anywhere from 6 to 20 sessions for changes to be made. The blocks of handwriting lessons are either 6, 8 or 10. The number is down to yourself to decide. Please do contact me first if uncertain.

So, what is included?
Face to face
A series of 6, 8 or 10 individual sessions developing your child’s handwriting skills at a pace they can excel at.
Every session lasts for 45 minutes. An extra 15 minutes time is always provided for speaking to you, as Mum or Dad, or your child’s school staff to discuss what to work on in-between my lessons.
Research has shown that handwriting can be developed through play alone. I always try to incorporate some game based learning to keep it fun.
