A SEN (Special Educational Needs) tutor is an educator who specialises in providing additional support and guidance to students with special educational needs. These needs may arise due to a variety of factors, such as learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or emotional or behavioural difficulties.
SEN tutors work with students on a one-to-one basis or in small groups, tailoring their teaching approach to meet the unique needs of each individual. They may use various teaching strategies and techniques to help students overcome challenges and reach their academic potential.
SEN tutors may work in a variety of settings, including schools or as private tutors at the family home. Their responsibilities may include developing individualised learning plans, providing extra academic support, and helping students develop social and emotional skills. They may also liaise with other professionals, such as teachers, therapists, and parents, to ensure that the student is receiving comprehensive support.

We're almost certain you will be happy with your choice of teacher, but if the first lesson is not a success, for whatever reason, you will not be charged for the lesson and we will immediately look to find you an alternative teacher.
