We started Sunbeam Education with a vision to create a comfortable environment for students with autism, ADHD, and dyslexia with people who genuinely understand their issues. We want to provide the best environment for people to grow and build confidence


We take great pride in offering the best coaching and tutoring services. Providing students with access to tips and techniques that we develop in-house, through our ever-improving teaching and coaching approaches. At Sunbeam Education, we prioritise the building of strong and understanding relationships with our students. We believe in treating each student as an individual rather than a diagnosis or label; we favour educators and coaches with first-hand experience over clinicians. Most of us have been diagnosed with one of these conditions ourselves so we can offer personal advice from someone who understands what it’s like living with these challenges daily. We strive to create an environment that encourages learning and growth while fostering confidence and independence. With our support, students can achieve the success they deserve.


At Sunbeam Education, our goal is to provide the best possible learning experience for our students by creating an environment that is compassionate, friendly, and understanding of their individual needs.

Our mission is to empower our students to succeed in their educational endeavours by providing them with the necessary tools and support they need to reach their full potential. We are committed to providing personalised instruction tailored to each student’s unique learning style and challenges.

Our tutors and coaches are highly trained professionals who understand the unique challenges faced by students with special needs. We have developed a series of methods and techniques that we have found to be successful, and we are constantly improving them. We recognise that every student is different and we strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment where they can feel comfortable asking questions, seeking help, and receiving feedback without judgement or criticism. Ultimately, our goal is for our students to be successful both academically and personally. By offering personalised instruction, resources, guidance, and support we hope to equip our students with the skills they need for lifelong success in school and beyond.

Alex Pagett PhD

I’m an experienced tutor and coach, specialising in Science and Maths, with a PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry and a love for teaching the sciences. I have over 12 years of experience tutoring and coaching students at a wide variety of levels, from pre-GCSE to university, including adult learners and those with severe learning difficulties.

I was diagnosed with combined-type ADHD as an adult and have extensive experience with autism and dyslexia. Growing up, I was often labelled “lazy”, “a daydreamer” and “distracting” in the classroom. However, once I identified my own learning style that worked for me, I began to enjoy education again. This led me to discover a passion for Chemistry which eventually led me to complete my PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry.

I understand the impact that the educational environment can have on learning, particularly for those with learning difficulties or ADHD. As someone who has experienced this first-hand, it’s important to me that I create a supportive environment where students can feel comfortable and confident enough to learn without judgement or stigma.
