Enhancing Education: How SEN support from tutors makes a difference

The demand and supply of specialised support in education for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) continues to grow. Tutors recognise the importance of providing tailored SEN support to these students. Helping them overcome challenges and reach their full potential. We’ve highlighted in many of our blogs, how a tutor can help SEN students who are struggling in class or just need a little help focusing. This is why, in this blog, we’re going to go through some of the features that your child might have, which mean that they would likely benefit from SEN support through a specialised tutor.

Specific Learning Difficulties or Disabilities

Dyslexia TutoringIf your child has been diagnosed with specific learning difficulties or disabilities, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, or autism spectrum disorder. You may want to seek the expertise of a SEN tutor. A tutor can provide specialised support and interventions tailored to the child’s specific needs. This personalised support is aimed at utilising their differences and embracing them within learning. Leading to a more enjoyable learning experience.

Low Confidence and Self-esteem

Children with SEN may experience lower levels of confidence and self-esteem due to their learning difficulties. A SEN support tutor can create a supportive and nurturing environment. Building the child’s confidence and helping them develop a positive mindset towards their learning.

Challenges with Organisation and Study Skills

If a child struggles with organisation, time management, or study skills, but has not been officially diagnosed with a special need. A SEN tutor can provide guidance and support in developing effective strategies to counteract these challenges. The tutor can help the child develop routines, organisation systems, and study techniques that cater to their specific needs.

Difficulty with Focus and Attention

Children who have difficulty maintaining focus and attention in the classroom may benefit from a SEN tutor. The individualised attention provided means that there is no space to loose focus. The tutor can employ strategies and techniques to engage the child and help them stay focused on their learning tasks.

Desire for Individualised Support

Some parents may simply recognise that their child would benefit from individualised support beyond what is available in a classroom setting. Alternatively, children might request help with homework tasks or catch-up work. A SEN tutor can provide personalised attention, adapt teaching methods and materials to suit the child’s unique learning style and needs.
