Does Your Child Struggle With

  • Attention and Motivation

    Students with SEN, such as ADHD, often struggle with maintaining focus and attention, which can lead to missed instructions and incomplete tasks. Autism can also affect attention due to sensory issues or repetitive behaviours distracting from schoolwork. These attention difficulties can significantly reduce motivation, especially if students frequently face failure or frustration.

  • Communication

    SEN can significantly impact communication skills, which are critical for academic and social success. For example, students with autism may have difficulty understanding social cues, or interpreting language which hinders their communication ability. Those with dyslexia might struggle with both written and verbal expression due to difficulties in processing language.

    rectangle-85-1
  • Anxiety and Depression

    The struggles associated with SEN can lead to elevated levels of anxiety and depression. Students might experience stress due to their academic difficulties and the social challenges in a school setting. The constant effort required to keep up with their peers can be overwhelming, and the fear of failure or ridicule can exacerbate feelings of anxiety.

    rectangle-101
  • Executive function

    Executive functioning skills, such as planning and regulating emotions, are often impaired in students with SEN. For instance, ADHD hinders a student's ability to manage tasks and stay organised. Autism might affect flexible thinking and problem-solving skills.

    As a result of having ADHD myself, I am passionate about ensuring children with the same condition I have, have the opportunities and support I nearly missed out on. I love teaching students to enjoy literature in a way that can expand their knowledge of the wider world and in ways that will benefit them when they leave school. A natural passion for literature is something I will always encourage, and I look forward to being able to teach students who share this same passion as me!

Got a Question?

  • Tutoring or coaching, what's the difference?

    Tutoring focuses on academic subjects such as Maths or English and helping students understand specific content, while coaching aims to improve skills, such as time management, personal development, or confidence.

  • What is special educational needs (SEN) tutoring?

    Special educational needs (SEN) tutoring is educational support designed to help students with learning difficulties or disabilities. It involves adapting teaching methods and materials to meet these students' individual needs, ensuring they receive a quality education and can achieve their full potential.

  • How can an SEN tutor help me?

    SEN tutors help students identify strengths, improve academic skills, develop strategies to improve social skills, and build confidence. We work with students who a more traditional education system may have left behind and often need instruction in specific academic areas that a standard tutor may need help to provide. SEN tutors give practical support tailored to students’ needs, helping them reach their educational goals.

  • What is special educational needs (SEN) coaching?

    Special educational needs (SEN) coaching focuses on developing life skills, self-confidence, and personal growth for individuals with learning difficulties or disabilities. It helps build confidence, manage challenges, and achieve personal and educational goals through tailored strategies and support.

  • How can an SEN coach help me?

    A special educational needs (SEN) coach can help with school by teaching strategies for managing time and organising tasks, improving study and social skills, and boosting confidence. We aim to set achievable milestones, help communicate needs within the school system, and provide emotional support to help you navigate challenges effectively.

  • Do you work with other special educational needs and disabilities?

    We work with all special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) students. As SEN tutors and coaches, we understand the needs of students with dyscalculia, dysgraphia, and dyspraxia, as well as physical disabilities and many other conditions besides ADHD, autism and dyslexia.
