Chris Hely Maths Tutor
I am a qualified and experienced maths teacher who is offering tuition for: 11 plus entrance, 13 plus and public school scholarship and GCSE level. I have over 25 years experience and have prepared children for entrance to, among others, Manchester Grammar School, Shrewsbury and Eton and have built up strong bonds with many of the senior independent schools in the North West. I am not part of an agency and therefore will offer a different kind of service, supporting and reinforcing the work currently being done in school rather than adding an extra burden to the student by following a separate scheme of work! For those interested in 11+ entrance exams I can also assist with Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning. I have separate rates for individuals, semi-private (2 or 3 pupils) or small groups (maximum 6) and am prepared to travel locally. Please contact Chris Hely on 01829-751296 (home) or 07807-007463 (mobile) or email email@example.com for further information.

Connective Learning Dyslexia Centre
The Connective Learning Dyslexia Centre was set up in the Kelsall Parish Rooms (The Old Telephone Exchange) in 1999 by Isabel McIntyre, together with the help of her sister Margaret Hogan. As word got round about their success in helping children to overcome their literacy difficulties, demand for their services grew and since then, hundreds of young people have been helped to catch up to the reading and spelling abilities of their peers.
A multi-sensory computerised method is used, which involves the simultaneous use of the eyes, ears, speech organs, fingers and muscles so that the brain receives the same 'message' from a variety of pathways. Multi-sensory methods have long been recognised as the best way for people with dyslexia to learn and - when coupled with the staff expertise and highly supportive one-to-one environment of the Kelsall Centre - these methods can enable them to overcome their difficulties. This offers a way forward for frustrated and anxious parents - truly effective, specialist help for their dyslexic child.
