Difficulties with Numbers

Some individuals with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia have difficulties with Numbers. They may have problems learning and remembering timetables, completing mental calculations and find mathematical symbols confusing. Tasks involving sequencing can also present difficulties.

Students with Dyspraxia have associated Visual Perceptual Differences and do not always find methods such as number lines suit their Learning Styles. Very often such students have well developed ‘higher order’ maths skills. Working Memory Differences, which are associated with a wide range of specific learning difficulties, can mean that students find interpreting word problems in Maths a challenge. In addition, some students find it very difficult to demonstrate their thinking by writing each step of the maths problem before the solution, (known as “grasshoppers” rather than “inchworms”). We can support them with this.


You may also have heard of the term ‘Dyscalculia’. The British Dyslexia Association (BDA) definition is: “Dyscalculia is a specific and persistent difficulty in understanding numbers which can lead to a diverse range of difficulties with mathematics. It will be unexpected in relation to age, level of education and experience and occurs across all ages and abilities”.  Some of our tutors have a particular interest in the assessment and tutoring of students with Dyscalculia.

Tuition at home-online

The Specialist Maths Tuition we offer takes place  ‘Online’. Specialist Maths Tuition is delivered within the students own home using Zoom. Many students and parents appreciate this method, saving both travel time and money. Time zones permitting, we extend this service to English Students with Neuro Diverse Needs, who are currently resident Overseas.

Weekly Maths lessons take place at a set time and day throughout the week, including Saturday mornings. Students lessons are scheduled after school or, in some circumstances, during the school day. We have very similar terms dates to our local authority schools and our Terms Dates are available for download from this website.

We use the latest resources and programmes to suit students from Key stage 1 to GCSE.
