    SENsational Tutors personally selected you for us as a family to consider you as a SEN family tutor after listening to all my worries about my lovely grandson Louis, aged 5. I personally want to thank you SO MUCH for professionally taking Louis under your wing for SEN tutoring and blending in with all our family absolutely superbly. Especially, after I personally said to Joanna that Louis couldn’t even focus on learning for more than 10/15 minutes with us, or anyone at a time & that his “first year reception school” teacher said he was really struggling (and absolutely sinking at school) since starting his first year & that Louis was falling so far behind. Understandably no family ever wants to make that SEN call with anyone, but Miriam , I am and our whole family are so pleased I did! As Grandad to 6 beautiful young grandchildren I know Louis now IS getting great (SEN) specialist tuition support from you. I know louis has learning difficulties but Louis has some lovely traits and qualities as well First time Louis met you Miriam amazingly you had him totally focused for the whole one & half hours. We were totally & absolutely shocked as a family, but so very pleased & relieved. We did not think that was ever possible Miriam! In just 3 weeks (only 3 lessons) you have engaged & transformed Louis (and our families confidence together) & Louis absolutely loves you Miriam and is so very proud of his learning folder & teach papers you personally make and have given to him. Louis really believes it’s BIG BOY stuff to have a tutor as his cousins have had them on occasion. He really is proud and looks forward to his time with you ( as he really does want to please you) Miriam, you should just see the lovely marvellous smile & growth of his personal confidence in himself already in 3 weeks! – even his school teacher is amazed at his development & progress. Yes Louis has SEN needs, but Miriam, I really think he personally feels much much more confident now because you have found ways for him to develop and understand learning & schooling and that has given him confidence. His teacher has said he is coming to school much MORE confident & that’s really FANTASTIC! You have been absolutely superb, you are so extremely professional and have Louis totally engaged for the whole one and a half hours you spend with him each week. You are now identifying what Louis can do reasonably well at & what he does really struggle with and needs support on. We as a family are taking it all on board, carrying on your tutoring advice during the rest of each week. We are working together as a family team so well with You so we can ultimately, establish what Special Educational Needs Louis will require in his long term future. We realise, he will definitely need a “solid long term educational plan” In time, following expert consultant paediatric reviews we will be able to establish what exactly Louis really has to contend with in SEN and what we can work to and plan for his very best future. We do know now Miriam it is going to be long term! Miriam thank you so much for your SEN tutoring skills, as all of your skills and support have given us (and Louis) so much more confidence for the future. There must be so many worried parents & grandparents out there and I can only hope they too, make that first call and gain your tutoring SEN skills & advise that can help other families and their children! Very best wishes and again REAL thanks for your personal support to us for Louis, you have been a real star and asset for us as a caring family. Kindness & Best Michael (Grandad to Louis)

    Miriam is a fantastic tutor and our daughter loves the sessions. All sessions are very well planned and Miriam has increased our daughter’s confidence immensely.

    Miriam has been tutoring my son who is 6 years old. He has been struggling in school and finds concentration really tricky. Miriam has been so lovely with my son and she always has new ideas to engage him in learning, lots of physical games which he absolutely loves. He is developing a love of learning I could have only hoped for before Miriam started working with him. This week he raced to the table as soon as the door bell rang. He was excited to get started! He is really coming along well and Miriam is so patient with him. I listen to the lessons and hear him laughing, engaging and learning. She is so calm with him, he is a fidget and expert at avoidance. Not with Miriam, he is fully engaged, no more toilet breaks or running to me for a quick hug. He is so relaxed with her, this is a big step for my son. He is starting to remember words they have been working on and his reading has really developed. She has him jump for the number syllables in each word and it has truly helped him with his reading. Before he would talk quietly struggle with words, replace them with other words and try and cut short the reading session. Now he is reading confidently with no stumbling and reads the whole book. He has even asked if he can read more! I am incredibly grateful to Miriam for her hard work and dedication to helping my son.

    Miriam is such a superb tutor, both me and my wife cannot thank her enough.Our son who is 5 has only been working with Miriam for about 5 months now and I must say we noticed an improvement with in the first 2 session.Miriam is so kind caring & friendly no wonder my son loves learning with her

  • Stephanie Parker

    Miriam has tutored my daughter for the last year. She had been struggling at school as she had not received enough support with GDD and so had significant gaps in her English knowledge. Miriam quickly and accurately assessed where she was at. She put her at ease and their lessons have always been full of fun! Her word knowledge and grammar have improved beyond recognition and she feels very proud of what she has achieved with Miriam’s support. I never have to nag to do the homework as it is always fun and enjoyable and just the right level. My daughter has been able to translate all this learning to her school work and has much more confidence in school. She’s now in a place to move forward with confidence but if we need support in the future we will not hesitate to come straight back to Miriam.

  • Elizabeth Church

    Miriam at SENsational tutors has helped our son to develop and learn in new ways. Miriam’s patience, creative ways of teaching and deep understanding of how children learn in different ways, has helped build our son’s confidence and his academic abilities. We are always impressed by how much Miriam covers during the session. Miriam is hugely experienced and empathetic and we have appreciated her taking the time to talk to us after each session and help us to problem solve, as well us giving us reassurance about any issues we may be facing. We truly value the help that Miriam provides and appreciate her

    Miriam is a star! After searching the internet to find some support for our son who we homeschool, I came across SENsational Tutors. There were lots of tutors to choose from but I felt an immediate connection with Miriam, so I clicked on her lovely photo and as if by magic her description seemed to almost match our son’s needs! I made contact and we had a chat on the phone
    – I knew early on into the conversation that my instincts were right. Miriam sounded caring and understanding of our needs for our son and she had a genuine interest to help him, and us. Miriam has been working with our son for 6 months now, twice a week, and the change in him has been extraordinary. He is happy and flourishing and his reading and writing has come on leaps and bounds. Miriam always makes her sessions fun and engaging, she is patient and kind and she really really cares. I call her our very own Mary Poppins as she has not only brought a change to our lives but she brings such happiness and balance too.
