Our Team

Time and again, we see students enter our doors withdrawn and defeated, but quickly regain confidence as they unlock the ‘code’ that builds the English language. We want every child to be successful, so we love sharing what we know works!

Our tutors have trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach under a Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE).
