“Whether your child needs specific SEND support; whether you need an impartial SEND consultant to talk through options for your child, or you are confused by the way forward, I can help.”

Sarah Cox is a Senior Consultant and SEND Specialist at Osborne Cawkwell Tuition. She has spent 18 years teaching young people, and 13 of those with students with a Specific Learning Difficulty. Sarah is passionate about students receiving the best as well as most effective tutoring support.

Sarah gained a post graduate diploma in Dyslexia/SpLDs at the Hornsby Centre in 2007. She has worked as a Dyslexia specialist teacher in London Prep schools (including Notting Hill Prep, Garden House School and Thomas’s in Clapham). Sarah has garnered both a huge amount of knowledge and experience of what support SEND students need.

Sarah Cox bridges the gap between the guidance a student receives from an educational psychologist or SENDCo in school, and the work a tutor does with a student at home. She delivers tutor training as well as ongoing guidance to tutors in study skills and SEN-related topics. Sarah ensures tutors feel confident working with students with learning differences.

“Sarah Cox has a wealth of experience in Specific Learning Difficulties. Gathered from her Post Graduate Diploma, her various tutoring roles and her position of Learning Support Teacher at Notting Hill Prep.

She developed excellent relationships with pupils, parents and colleagues. She was also often a source of support and shoulder to lean on.
