Teaching — One Jump at a Time!


The length and frequency of the lessons is dependent on the age and needs of your child. Lessons are available before, during and after the school day. They can have their needs met during the school day, assuming they have a diagnosis. Home-schooled children can have lessons built into their learning programmes.

Teaching and therapy includes: literacy and numeracy, life skills, phonological awareness, motor skills, visual awareness, speech and language, handwriting and memory programmes.

The principles that I follow include:

Identifying Needs


Meeting Needs

  • One-to-one sessions

  • Addressing underlying difficulties, and filling literacy and numeracy gaps

  • Individual teaching and learning programme

  • Strategy and therapy-based teaching and learning approach

  • Partnership with parents and schools


Empowering your child

  • By understanding their own needs

  • Building confidence

  • Enabling success


Participating in their learning

  • Through strategy-based learning

  • Follow-up homework


Celebrating Success

  • Through measured and shared progress


Enabling Independence

  • Through automaticity and strategies​.

"Following a placement assessment Marion was able to tailor her teaching to my daughter’s specific needs, and (literally) within a few sessions I could begin to see a difference.

Not only did my daughter’s confidence increase exponentially, her school work – reading especially – was markedly improved. Marion worked dedicatedly with G to firm up these concepts, and worked with her to bring her up to a point where her teachers tell me that she is on track for attaining age-related progress this year."
