With just one week of tutoring left until the summer holidays it is hard not to reflect on the learning that has taken place this year.

I have had the pleasure of working with children from 2 years up to 12 and have made everything from dinosaur fossils out of pasta and magic spell books to jam sandwiches!  While tutoring we have tackled, among other activities,  scary stories, celebration reports and many new ways to learn spelling words.  It has given me quite a challenge to find ways of teaching all the different components of language in interesting ways and with just 55 minutes a week rather than 5 hours, 5 days a week!

I have attached my  Summer 2013 newsletter which has the details of next terms workshops at the end.  If you would like to sign your child up for any of them please complete the application form or send an email to

Finally I will take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy summer.



There is less than a week until the ‘Sunny Spring’ workshop and I’m very happy to see the sun has come out this morning.  I was seriously wondering whether I needed to change the theme to a winter one!

In two weeks time is the ‘Happy Birthday Smart Owls’ workshop and I’m so pleased that so many workshop regulars are able to celebrate this special date with me.

Both workshops are fully booked but if you want to be one of the first to hear about the new workshop dates for after the summer (yes, I am planning them already!) just email and I’ll add you to my mailing list.

I have been extremely busy in the last few weeks trying to organise new workshops.  It’s been quite a challenge given the number of public holidays, school holidays and my own commitments but I am happy to announce that I have managed to schedule two new dates.

On Saturday 6th April there will be ‘Sunny Spring’ for children who are 2 1/2 – 4 years old and then the following week on Saturday 13th April is a very special read, rhyme, craft to celebrate Smart Owls first birthday.  You can get more information on both workshops and how to register here.  The flyer is here.
