Reviews for SEN Tutors in Dover

4.8

Fiona taught our son from Reception to Year 3 and now teaches our daughter, who is in Year 1. They both thoroughly enjoy lessons with Fiona and they have both improved greatly as a result of them. Her lessons are well prepared and imaginative and she is genuinely interested in their academic development. When her pupil has a problem in a specific area she thinks creatively to find different ways to teach it so that the child overcomes their problem. I would strongly recommend Fiona as a tutor. Mrs A King
SEN Tuition in Dover

Fiona provides structured lessons that are designed to meet the individual needs of each child. The tuition my son has received from Fiona has enabled him to make steady progress at a comfortable and stress-free pace. He has shown increased confidence in his ability, and his development is evident. I would not hesitate to recommend Fiona to parents looking for private tuition for their children, particularly in the 4 to11 age range. Mr C Sisodia

SEN Tuition in Canterbury

Kathy tutored my son through his GCSE Maths, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Oliver has Aspergers Syndrome and ADD, so finding the right tutor for him was paramount to his success. He believed he would fail, but she never gave up on him. Without Kathy, Oliver would not have passed his GCSE Maths. She was patient, calm and able to explain things in a way he understood, adapting her teaching as needed if things didnt make sense to him. I can honestly say I believe that he wouldnt have achieved the success he did without her. Mrs Sarah Todd

Jenny P
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Dover SEN Tutor

I believe that children need to feel confident and happy to learn. I am a primary school teacher with 19 years experience. I have been a private tutor for five years. I have helped children build their confidence in maths, writing and reading. I have also helped children prepare for the 11+. It is important to me that I build a relationship of trust with the children I tutor so they feel they can make mistakes and take risks to move their learning forward. I plan activities which are fun and engaging. If a child does not understand something, then I teach it in a different way, and eventually, there will be a 'lightbulb' moment. I really enjoy tutoring as you can create a bespoke curriculum for the individual child, and we have fun!

Please provide your tuition requirements above.

Tuition with a qualified SEN teacher at your home in Dover 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 Dover, 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 Dover 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 Dover. 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 Dover 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.
