CodeBreakers® Online Tuition (Worldwide)New for September 2019
Are you an adult seeking discreet Dyslexia support in your own home?

What is CodeBreakers?
It is a Dyslexia specific programme. Learners no longer have to rely on what words look like to read and spell them. Learners are taught individual sounds and how to make a written response for them. They are also taught to recognise a group of letters and know what sound they say. Learners are taught to encode and decode words. They can then apply this knowledge to words which contain this sound. We only introduce words with sounds a learner has discovered and continuously add to their knowledge. We structure and deliver the work to help them remember and store the information they are learning. There are lots of opportunities to over learn and it’s delivered in a multi-sensory way to make learning ‘stick’. We also make it fun! Worksheets are bite-sized to ensure learning takes place in small manageable chunks. Best of all it’s at the learner’s pace.
It’s known as a systematic synthetic phonics programme, which is cumulative and structured. It uses multi-sensory strategies to help learn and retain information.

Who can access?
You do not need to have a dyslexia diagnosis to receive tuition. If you’re simply looking to boost your skills or can’t be sure if you ever had a Dyslexia assessment, you can still book sessions. Simply use the ‘Contact Us’ form. As long as you’re happy using the online tuition software, we can work together.
What you’ll receive
A 55 minute 1:1, live, individualised Dyslexia tuition session, from the author of CodeBreakers®, using the CodeBreakers® system. The session includes interactive whiteboard where learners will complete lessons on the computer, it will also help to develop typing and intuitive computer skills. If you wish, you can then save the lesson as a PDF file. However, you will have you own unique log in to view your lesson any time.
Is it easy to use?
You don’t have to be a whizz kid on computers to use the platform which lessons are delivered on. The toolbar is very easy to use. I was very impressed myself. I was able to use the software very quickly. The software used does not need any complicate downloads or installation to your computer. Simply log in at your agreed time to receive your lesson.
Employers and training providers; you might need a quick technical check to ensure your firewalls don’t stop the use of mic and webcams. If an employee/apprentice is receiving support during work time they would benefit from using a quiet office where they won’t disturb others when chatting online. They can, of course, access support from their own home if they wish.
What will I need?
All you need is an up-to-date computer with a mic and webcam and occasional access to a printer if you wish to print the work you have done. Of course, a reliable internet connection is a must.
How do I know this will be right for me?
We can offer a short demonstration webinar to show how CodeBreakers® works.
What do I do next?
Use the contact form to request online tuition. Georgina will contact you directly and chat about your needs and your availability. You will then be offered a time & day to suit you.
We are now pleased to announce My Dyslexia Tutor from CodeBreakers®.

It’s just like having your own Dyslexia tutor. Employees can log on and learn at any time that suits them, they can even access the programme at home.
