On initial enquiry, I will be keen to hear about your concerns and why you are seeking help. An initial introductory assessment/lesson will be held at which time the student and I will get to know one another and I will ensure your child feels at ease. I will assess him/her to see where the strengths and weaknesses lie and the areas of need as outlined in the parental discussion. I will brief parents at pick up, but further private communication as to the way forward will take place via phone or e mail. I am always keen to receive feedback on the first lesson from the student via their parents. Assuming both are happy, then we can take the tuition forward on a weekly lesson or more, dependent on need. I wish to establish a positive and successful partnership with parents and I will regularly advise on strategies that I am using so that these can be reinforced at home.
