The Unicornmaths Studio is run by Sarah Wedderburn and three qualified Special Needs teachers, resulting in a high level of learning support and mathematical expertise. Pupils with maths difficulties are taught on a one-to-one basis so that lessons are tailor made for the individual child. Tutors work to boost their pupils’ confidence and extend their knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of maths.
