SEN and Learning Support

SEN children who are home tutored receive one-to-one attention so that their education is adapted specifically to meet their needs, pace and style of learning. When taught in the home environment children are able to relax and enjoy their learning. Good SEN teachers communicate regularly with parents so that they can better understand their child's learning style, needs and progress. Common SEN conditions that affect children include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Asperger's Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety Disorder and Working Memory Difficulties.

Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that can affect reading, writing and spelling. Although known as a reading disorder, dyslexia is thought to be caused by difficulties with information processing. Children with dyslexia can find it difficult to process and remember information that they hear and see, but they can be very able with problem-solving skills, and demonstrate high levels of creativity. Dyslexia can occur alongside other conditions such as dyspraxia, dyscalculia and attention deficit disorder. Dyslexia can run in families.

Dyspraxia

Dyspraxia is also known as developmental co-ordination disorder and is a common condition that can affect movement, physical coordination and fine and gross motor control. Children with dyspraxia may appear clumsy, have difficulty with tasks that include balance and coordination; and struggle with writing, drawing, typing and other educational activities. Dyspraxia can affect a child�s ability to manage their emotions and deal with social situations. It can also affect speech and articulation.

Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is a learning disorder that affects one's ability to understand numbers, maths concepts and carry out mathematical calculations. Children suffering from dyscalculia may show high levels of anxiety during maths lessons and have difficulties learning mathematical facts. Children with dyscalculia often show difficulties that are below the expected level for their age. They may struggle to count backwards, recognise digits, and have difficulty understanding numbers and place value; and struggle to remember simple facts.

Autism and ASD

Autism, also known as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, is an umbrella of developmental conditions that affect communication, social interaction and behaviour. Autism can range from mild to very severe and children with autism see, hear and experience the world in a different way to others. Autism can affect a child's ability to socialise, make friends and interpret people's feelings. Autism can cause difficulties with listening, understanding and concentrating.

Tuition with a qualified SEN teacher at your home in Derbyshire costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified SEN teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and SEN tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced SEN teachers in Derbyshire, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our SEN teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a SEN tutor coming to your home in Derbyshire to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the SEN tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the SEN tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the SEN tutor is required to travel to your home, in Derbyshire. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your SEN tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your SEN tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of SEN tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group SEN tuition in Derbyshire depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
