Who I can help - adults

Adults with reading, writing and spelling problems
I enjoy teaching people of all ages.  Adults should not be embarrassed by coming to see me, we all have areas of strengths and weaknesses.  If you have a problem with reading, writing or spelling, let me help you sort it out.  To find out how I can help you, contact me on penelope.a.barton@gmail.com or by phone on 07813-450579.


Study skills

Independent learning and exams are becoming a larger part of our lives, not just for children at school but for those at college, university and beyond.  However, we are rarely taught how to organise ourselves (something which those with dyslexia have particular difficulty with) or how to take notes, plan essays or revise.  I teach study skills to pupils of all ages – from Year 6 children to mature students at university, focussing on the needs of the individual pupils to give them the skills they need to succeed.
