Benefits of Online Learning : 

In the current situation many students and their families prefer to opt for online tuition, and the benefits are clear: 
Efficiency and flexibility - travel time is eliminated and sessions can be arranged to fit with your schedule more easily. 
Study from the comfort of familiar surroundings - lessons can take place in an environment the student feels most comortable in. Engagement levels are higher when they feel relaxed and at ease. 
Familiar medium - learning online is likely to be second nature to most students. With the use of familiar tools such as interactive whiteboards and share screens, they can leverage their IT skills to support their independent learning.  

Thinking Differently About Dyslexia 

"It’s time we all understand dyslexia properly as 
a different way of thinking, not a disadvantage”. 
Sir Richard Branson 
 
Dyslexic minds process information in divergent, lateral ways. 
In fact they’ve created some of the world's greatest inventions, 
brands, and art. 
 
However, many still perceive dyslexia as a disadvantage, when 
actually it’s a different way of thinking that if harnessed, can 
lead to success. 
 
• This difference results in a pattern of strengths such as critical 
thinking, creativity and communication skills. 
 
 
 
 

Neurodiversity 

Specific learning difficulties, or differences (SpLD) is an overarching term for a number of associated learning differences. The term 'neurodiversity' is increasingly used as it focuses on the positive qualities of thinking and learning differently, arguing that an impairment should not constitute a barrier to inclusion or access. 
 
Neurodiversity also refers to the different ways the brain can work and interpret information. It highlights that people think about things differently, have different interests and motivations, and are naturally better at some things and poorer at others. 
 
Most people are neurotypical, meaning that the brain functions and processes information in the way society expects. 
 
All classrooms are neurodiverse and will include learners who learn differently. Skilled individual tuition can help to provide tools to combat problem issues such as organisation, time-keeping and short-term memory, thereby boosting self-confidence and overall well-being. 

What is Dyslexia? 

Dyslexia is one of a family of Specific Learning Difficulties. 
 
Many people who have dyslexia have strong creative, visual and problem solving skills. 
 
Dyslexia is not linked to intelligence but can make learning more challenging. 
 
Dyslexia is a life-long condition which has a substantial effect on an individual’s day to day activities and is classed as a disability under the Equality Act 2010. 
 
Dyslexia varies from person to person and no two people will have the same set of strengths and weaknesses. 
 
It often co-occurs with related conditions, such as dyspraxia, dyscalculia and attention deficit disorder. 
 
Dyslexic individuals often have difficulty processing and remembering information.
