About Us


At SENsational Tutors Ltd, we aim to inspire a love of learning through fun and exciting activities. We carefully match tutors, specialists and therapists to families, and use children’s interests to plan tailor-made, play-based 1:1 sessions and tuition packages. Our carefully selected specialists can provide a boost in your child’s academic performance, communication or behaviour, or a combination of all the above.

We help all children including those who are gifted and talented, have additional educational and behavioural needs, and those with a diagnosis of (or possible) autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia, focus and attention issues, general concerns around anxiety or confidence, global developmental delay, general academic/ social/ emotional/ behavioural difficulties, language and processing difficulties or any other learning needs.

We are different to many other agencies as we keep children’s happiness and enjoyment at the heart of everything we do. Our unique method boosts children's independence and confidence, while powerfully developing all areas of their development.

Our services are available across London and your child can be supported in the comfort of their home. Get in touch with Joanna or search for a specialist tutor near you to begin your child's private tutoring journey with us.

Our Team of Educational Consultants

We have a dedicated team of Educational Consultants who are experts in special educational needs, offering a variety of services suitable for all families.

Our consultants have a range of professional experience and expertise and are here to assist parents of children with special educational needs with any issues related to schools and education, as well as to provide advice to parents with children with SEN.

As we all know, each child is different and there is no such thing as the ‘’perfect’’ school. Our specialist consultants help parents choose the right school for their child by looking at the individual needs of each child as well as the needs of the whole family.

Our team of expert educational professionals offer practical strategies and interventions for parents to use at home in order to help children with special educational needs and provide recommendations for local services or other SEN professionals.

Other services include information on independent schools, assessments and entry requirements.
