CodeBreakers® Online Tuition (Worldwide)New for September 2019
Are you a parent wishing to access Dyslexia specific tuition for your child but can’t find someone locally who is qualified? Are you home-educating your own child?
Are you an adult seeking discreet Dyslexia support in your own home?
Are you an employer who’d like to support an employee/apprentice with literacy skills? Are you a training provider who would like to support clients with entry level/functional skills work?

What is CodeBreakers?
It is a Dyslexia specific, systematic synthetic phonics programme, which is cumulative and structured. It uses multi-sensory strategies to help learn and retain information.
Did you know, not all interventions have been tested in a school setting? CodeBreakers is unique, it has just undergone a year-long pilot study in schools, to demonstrate its effectiveness (September 2018-July2019). We were over the moon with the results. Please look out for our report in professional education journals.

Who can access?
You do not need to have a dyslexia diagnosis to receive tuition. If you’re simply looking to boost your skills or not sure if your child has Dyslexia, you can still refer. Adults and parent can simply refer by using the ‘Contact Us’ form. Schools can also contact directly to refer students. I can work with students of all ages from 6 to post 16. As long as you’re happy using the online tuition software, we can work together. We do encourage younger children to be supported at home by a parent.
What you’ll receive
A 55 minute 1:1, live, individualised Dyslexia tuition session, from the author of CodeBreakers, using the CodeBreakers system. The session includes interactive whiteboard where students will complete lessons on the computer, helping them develop tying and intuitive computer skills. You can then save the lesson to your own computer to view.
Is it easy to use?
Most children are more tech savvy than adults these days. I was very impressed myself that I was able to use the intuitive software very quickly, to operate and perform the lesson. The software used does not need any complicate downloads or installation to your computer. Simply log in at your agreed time to receive your lesson. At the end of the session, simply save your document/lesson.
What will I need?
All you need is an up-to-date computer with a mic and webcam and occasional access to a printer. Of course, a reliable internet connection.
How do I know this will be right for me, my students or my child?
We can offer a short demonstration webinar to show how CodeBreakers works.
I’d like tuition for small groups in my school, how will that work?
CodeBreakers can also offer group teaching sessions via webinar.
