    We were after a tutor to help with our son who has ASC and high anxiety to specifically help with his executive functioning skills and regain his confidence and motivation for his schoolwork. Although he’s only had a few sessions with Rachel so far, you can see things are very slowly starting to click.

    Rachel is the first teacher/tutor our son’s had in many years who seems to naturally get him. This has been, I think, a great source of relief for him and he’s felt confident speaking and interacting with Rachel very quickly.
    The skills Rachel has taught him so far are accessible and he’s able to put them into action. Some of them are strategies he already knows in theory, but it’s almost like there have been pieces of the puzzle missing which have stopped him using them effectively. Rachel has supplied these missing pieces and he’s not only slowly practising using them but has actually admitted that they help.
    There’s still a long way to go but you can hear the tiny clicks going on in his head as things make more sense for him. We can wholeheartedly recommend Rachel.

    Working with Rachel at SENsational Tutors has been a real eye opener. It’s been great to find someone who real understands what my Son needs. Will definitely be using her/them again.
