Sarah Cox bridges the gap between the guidance and support a student receives from an educational psychologist or SENDCo in school, and the work a private tutor does with a student.
She provides SEND support and advice to parents and delivers tutor training and ongoing guidance to tutors in study skills and SEND-related topics.
Sarah gained her post graduate diploma in Dyslexia/SpLDs at the Hornsby Centre in 2005. She has worked as a Dyslexia specialist teacher in several London Prep schools including Notting Hill Prep, Garden House School, Thomas’s in Clapham and Hampton Court House School while offering specialist dyslexia tutoring as a home school tutor.
Sarah has written numerous articles on SEND-related topics for The Tutors’ Association and has appeared as a guest speaker on Radio Veralum’s Parent Show with Kathy Weston on their show ‘Literacy and our Children‘.
