Our Practice

The consultation rooms are in my home in Cranleigh, Surrey, just off the A281. This ‘home away from home’ setting enables the children to relax and feel safe.

We also offer SKYPE for parent consultations, for international clients and for UK clients who are geographically not able to commute to Cranleigh.

Some clients prefer for their children to be seen in their own homes, and for this personal convenience, travel time and session times are charged at a different rate.

Terms of Service

Our priority is to build relationships of mutual trust and understanding. Before the first session with a child we meet with the parents to understand the specific requirements. Holding this valuable information in mind, in the first session we always ask the child what they feel that they need to work on and how they know this.   In this session, we establish the child’s learning styles and their preferred ways of taking in information. Together with the parent’s information, we are then able to create a plan for the subsequent sessions.

Our clients attend  weekly sessions for the duration of their coaching session or for one half -term for tutorials. Many clients choose to book their tutorials and continued coaching for the duration of the academic year.

We offer bespoke tutorials for supporting academic progress and potential as well as more specialised tutorials specifically focussing on learning challenges.

We offer a series of more intensive tutorials to support exam students.

Due to being in high demand, all coaching and tutorials are booked and paid for in advance of each academic half-term.

A non-refundable holding deposit is paid in order to reserve a tutorial space.  These deposits are returned against the first tutorial invoice for clients taking up their space.

Places for coaching and tutoring are offered as a matter of priority.

Cancellations must be made within 24 hours or normal charges apply.

From time to time, our scheduled sessions may need to be rearranged and at least 24 hours notice will be provided for these changes.  Our aim will be to reschedule the sessions over cancellation.
