Julia & Vicky

Both Julia and Vicky are trained in Safeguarding, First Aid and are DBS checked.

Julia Johnston

Julia has over eight years’ experience in literacy support and teaching dyslexic children how to learn across all age ranges.

Having studied dyslexia and dyspraxia for two years and having been trained in Reading Recovery, Julia recognised a unique approach is necessary for each child and went on to combine all these skills to provide bespoke interventions, using visual and kinaesthetic support.

Through researching areas of learning for many years Julia based her teaching around the development of a child’s brain.

Vicky Lambert

Vicky has worked in the fitness industry for over 25 years and for the last 15 years had run her own personal training business, specialising in Fitness and Nutrition. She has seen first-hand the potential of children through sport, especially with those who are more vulnerable than others.

She volunteered teaching sport, for three years, to teenagers who had been excluded from main stream school and found that through sport they were able to build confidence and self-esteem which was lacking from elsewhere in their lives.
