Specialist Tuition and Study Skills Tuition

We can arrange specialist tuition for learners with dyslexia.

Why choose a Helen Arkell specialist teacher?

Helen Arkell specialist teachers understand that each pupil is different. Using your child’s strengths and their approach to learning, they will create an individual, multi-sensory learning programme to support your child’s areas of need.

Study Skills Tuition will help a young person to develop strategies in areas of learning they find difficult and support them to do the best they can at school and in their exams.

Helen Arkell specialist teachers are specially trained in teaching children with specific learning difficulties. They undertake regular continuing professional development (CPD) and have access to, and the support of, the senior professional staff at Helen Arkell.

You will receive a report at the end of each term, which gives a valuable insight into your child’s progress.

Each of our specialist teachers has a current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.


Tuition usually takes place at the Specialist Teacher’s home or at the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity in Farnham. It may be possible to arrange for sessions to take place in your home or online. This is arranged directly with the specialist teacher.

Many schools welcome Helen Arkell specialist teachers and tuition takes place at school. This has to be arranged with the school by parents/guardians.


The day and time of lessons is arranged between the specialist teacher and parents/guardians/the individual.

“My son had a Helen Arkell tutor. Not only were her teaching skills excellent but she provided me with support in battling the system for which he and I are forever thankful.”

"I no longer need the help of the Helen Arkell Centre. However it has made all the difference to my son's life. As a result he is on track to get the equivalent of a first at one of the world's top universities. He plans to do a Masters in Linguistics and finance himself by teaching English as a foreign language. Not bad, but only done with JH's and your help.”

"R was very pleased with her A level results, as were we. You were a great support to her during her time at school and much of her success is down to the strategies and help that you provided to her over the years, so thank you also once again for everything that you did for her."

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you organisation for the support you have given over the years. It has been very impressive. In particular, I would ask you to pass my heartfelt thanks on to JH who has been a lovely tutor and friend to my daughter over the last few years."
