Sarah Ablitt is a qualified dyslexia tutor who enjoys working with dyslexics and dyspraxics.  On this website, Sarah shares her most effective lessons from over twenty years of one-to-one remedial tuition.  These lessons are unique in that they draw on the dyslexic or dyspraxic's innate creative talents to make learning enjoyable, confidence-boosting, and of lasting benefit.
 
"I have always had an interest in literature and writing.  While studying for a degree in English Literature and Philosophy at the University of East Anglia I became even more interested in language, and how people communicate with words.  A growing interest in dyslexia became more central.  I studied for a post-graduate diploma in teaching adults and children with dyslexia at the Hornsby International Dyslexia Centre, London, which I gained with Merit.
 
Since graduating, I have gained over 20 years' experience working with students aged four years to over 50 whom I have tutored in person privately, at school or college or by distance learning.  I have taught students with dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and ASC combined with dyslexia.
 
I continue to tutor privately from my home in Kettering, Northamptonshire, UK.  I have a special interest in using dyslexics' and dyspraxics' creative talents to the full to improve spelling, reading, writing, memory and numeracy skills."

"Sarah Ablitt has been tutoring our son.  Her compassion, empathy and academic qualifications have paid tremendous dividends towards both our son's character and educational needs.  The latter by using the latest systematic approaches to our son's particular range of problems, which in conjunction with her own special qualities have gradually given back, to our son, his self-confidence and a marked improvement in his educational achievements."  Parents of an 8 year-old dyslexic boy

"For the first time in his life he has read a book, he enjoyed it so much that he couldn't put it down.  He has also bought two more to read.  He also read aloud over the phone to me and the words were flowing whereas it used to be very stilted.  He is so pleased that he has achieved this."  Regarding the progress of an adult student with quite severe dyslexia
