Learning isn't meant to be so hard!

I’m Samantha Hornery and I help parents get the right help for their children when learning is hard at school.

I’ve dedicated my whole career to teaching children and teenagers impacted by difficulties learning and in doing so have helped so many children.

My approach is to look for the missing pieces in a child’s learning, through assessment and listening really carefully – before preparing a battle plan for success through or around those learning difficulties. It doesn’t matter how many children I’ve helped, everyone’s path is a little different!

Sam gave my daughter the tools of how to organise her life, setting guidelines, responsibilities and being totally accountable for her efforts throughout. We ow so much to Sam who provided a safe haven for our daughter where she grew and thrived within her environment.

I truly believe that if we had not met Sam at the time that we did, things would have worked out very differently. As a parent of a child with learning difficulties I was to the point of being so frustrated. I will always be eternally grateful to her.
