Combining Tutoring, Mentoring & Exercise for Children & Teens

Kickstart Learning with Kerry combines tutoring, mentoring and exercise to enable children and teens (aged 6 to 14) to learn more effectively with a key focus on building confidence and self-esteem. One-to-one and two-to-one martial arts sessions are also offered in association with Combat Academy UK. The service is based in High Wycombe and specialises in working with those who learn in unconventional ways or who have learning differences such as ADHD, ASD, dyslexia and dyspraxia as well as those who may have become disengaged with the learning process.

Every aspect of Kickstart Learning with Kerry is highly personalised and based on extensive knowledge and over a decade of experience supporting children and young people who have a wide range of needs. A student's interests and experiences are used to engage them in sessions and practical activities and games are mostly used to make the learning fun and memorable. Emotional wellbeing is of utmost importance in sessions and all students are taught strategies to help overcome frustration and enable them to embrace challenges with confidence.
