Tutors for children and young people

Parents and carers who have found a tutor through Dyslexia Scotland often see huge improvements in their child’s learning.

A dyslexia tutor can help your child:

  • learn to learn
  • learn at their own pace
  • develop strategies for doing school work
  • enjoy learning
  • get help with homework, or things they find difficult at school.

Tutors for adults

As an adult, you may have a number of reasons for looking for a tutor. You may want help with literacy or study skills; you may be finding paperwork and forms challenging; or need help with organisational skills or time management.

For an adult, a tutor can help you:

  • learn techniques created specifically for people with dyslexia
  • learn at your own pace and in a way that suits you
  • develop strategies for the things you find tricky
  • build your self-confidence to tackle problems independently.

“My son struggled with times-tables and felt himself to be ‘thick’ because of this.  The tutor worked with him to identify ways he could quickly work out answers if he was not able to memorise them. They worked on positive strategies to ask for support at school and dealt with anxieties he had about the changes. This was all very supportive of my son and helped him to feel better about himself and see that there are lots of ways to learn not just one.”
