Hi! I wanted to write and give my praise and appreciation for my Study Skills Tutor, Ruth Gravelle. Her understanding of the difficulties and advantages of being Dyslexic was a breath of fresh air. She was able to think outside the box and suggest a variety of ways of approaching studying, revising, and academic study skills in an uncommon specific medical area at MSc level, where others would use that as their excuse to not be able to help me. She was also very supportive during the stressful exam periods and always left me feeling motivated and inspired to study. Her disposition is always happy, positive, encouraging, and understanding. Without a doubt the best support I have received in further education. This was all achieved remotely through Zoom sessions. Alison.

Feedback from parent following 3 sessions
Hi Ruth… M has been doing really well on her revision these last few weeks and has got into a really good rhythm. I am very proud of her… She is creating the flash cards to revise and has just got on with it with confidence she did not have before. I will keep you posted. Thank you for all your help to date – you have been a star.

Letter to Dr Sue Warnock:
“…I just wanted to pass on our huge appreciation of helping us understand D and how best we can help him… We can also now understand why D says “nobody believes me anymore” and he becomes extremely frustrated when he tries to explain why he can’t produce written work…

Testimonial – Dyslexia Tuition
“Ruth has worked with my son who is diagnosed with dyslexia and was a reluctant reader and writer. Since working with Ruth he has blossomed into a learner who is engaged, curious and willing to give reading and writing his best shot. Although he still struggles to get his ideas written down he is much more confident in giving it a go and is able to see the benefits of doing so, which is fantastic to see. Ruth has also worked on improving his memory and recall skills and he is now confident in applying these techniques to all aspects of his learning.
Ruth has provided regular updates and always delivered well planned lessons with a great variety of resources. Ruth’s passion for making learning fun and meaningful has enabled my son to become an independent reader and writer.”

Testimonial – Hypnotherapy
“I am writing to thank Ruth for the most wonderful and motivational session I had with her at the beginning of the year. Whilst hoping the hypnotherapy would be helpful I was unprepared for the feeling of peace that has stayed with me since the session. I have an absolute manic time since the beginning of the year and I truly believe I would not have managed or coped had I not been to see Ruth. I cannot thank you enough. I would highly recommend you, you made me feel safe and welcome.”
