A hugely supportive approach

Melanie worked with our daughter for just over two years, supporting her with her dyslexia with kindness, warmth and a very calm, practical approach. And giving her the confidence to make amazing progress at school and recognise her true potential. I recommend her unreservedly.

Dyslexia & Dyscalculia Focus - amazing specialist support

5
Melanie Smith (Dyslexia & Dyscalculia Focus) has been supporting my dyslexic child for more than two years. She uses multi-sensory methods, to develop memory to support learning, and she has helped my child to develop independent learning skills.
Melanie’s support has made an amazing difference to my child, increasing his confidence and his performance at school. My child has made incredible progress since he started working with Melanie, and his assessments show how much he has improved.
I would recommend Dyslexia & Dyscalculia Focus to any parent who is looking for specialist support, Informal assessments or Full diagnostic assessments for their child.

My daughter has made excellent progress and now loves learning.

5
My daughter was having challenges with maths and English and I thought she might be dyslexic. After an assessment with Melanie, it was discovered she also had dyscalculia. With Melanie's kind and expert help she now has a strong foundation in reading and spelling patterns, punctuation and grammar.

More importantly, her confidence has grown and she loves learning and doing her homework. Melanie is a wonderful tutor, kind, patient and a lot of fun.
