Holly Swinton provides personalised tutoring to children aged 3-18 in Kenilworth, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Coventry, Rugby, Stratford and the surrounding area. She has a range of very high-quality assessments for Reading, Spelling, Handwriting, Maths and Dyslexia, which she uses to help plan well-targeted lessons and closely track children’s progress.
Tutoring sessions take place at Holly’s Kenilworth home (4 Queen’s Close, just off Warwick Road), which has a warm atmosphere and plenty of room.
Half-hour sessions are only £30, although she is offering a 10% discount during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tutoring is available for:
- English – reading, phonics, spelling, handwriting, sentence construction or just hating writing
- Maths – times tables, word problems, telling the time, fractions or just feeling a bit wobbly
- Specific Learning Difficulties, including dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
You can expect the following benefits:
- Personalised learning sessions tailored to your child’s specific needs
- A nurturing environment, with an emphasis on making learning fun
- Puzzles, games, fun worksheets and other free home study materials to borrow each week
- Regular assessments and feedback
- Rapid progress as a result of targeted learning support
If you would rather do the work yourself or would just like some peace of mind about how your child is progressing, then Holly can run a range of tests and give you jargon-free feedback, next steps and updated recommendations.
If you are worried about your child’s memory, coordination, handwriting, underlying ability or what they are hearing or seeing, then she has years of expertise (and a range of assessments) that can guide you about whose specialists help your child might need next to really thrive.
- Qualified teacher
- Holly has a PGCE in primary school teaching and QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) under the General Teaching Council, the governing body for teachers.
- Holly carries an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) disclosure, which means she is recognised by law to care for, supervise, train or be in sole charge of children or vulnerable people.
- Stay for the session, or drop off your child – it’s up to you
- If you would like to sit in on the tutoring sessions, you are more than welcome. However, there is no need to accompany your child, and most parents take advantage of the three supermarkets around the corner and other nearby shops.
- No long-term commitment necessary
- To see real progress, weekly sessions are best, but there is no pressure and no requirement for long-term commitment.
- Additional needs
- Holly has taught children with a range of additional needs, as well as some who are simply shy, angry or apathetic. This means that very little fazes her.
