    We have been so grateful for the incredible support that Ste has provided for our family over the last 6 months. We were looking for a tutor to work with our autistic son who only recently received a diagnosis after struggling with school for a long time. Ste has been such a vital source of advice, support and care as we have been learning to navigate our son’s anxiety, trauma and burnout, and the transition to home education. He has helped us to understand our son’s needs, and our needs as a neurodivergent family, holistically. We have learned so much from observing the way that he works with empathy, insight and confidence with our son. He is so much happier as a result. We initially received a recommendation for Ste from a friend, and when we contacted Joanna she was really helpful in putting us in touch and facilitating the introduction. We highly recommend Ste and Sensational Tutors – thank you!

    Finally… a tutor who understands how to reach my child. Aliyah was blessed with Ste who for the first time gave her confidence in herself and her ability to understand numbers. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Thank you both!

  • Jhanne

    After just a few sessions, our son who is Dyspraxic, demonstrated more confidence and is generally more chatty and has taken to these sessions with ease and is happy to participate. His tutor/mentor; Steven is wonderful – he is patient, dedicated and kind and plans each session with care so that they are challenging a very fun and entertaining way. He has taken time to get to know what our son is interested in and tailors part of the session to this but finds a way to stretch his ability each time. I am always impressed by how much work they get done each week and the ideas that Steven has for each session – they are really original and the tools and resources he uses are fantastic.

    Ste is excellent – knowledgeable, reliable and professional but also flexible and able to meet our childs needs where she is on the day (which can vary greatly). We feel he supports her to embrace the challenges of the subject and uses his creativity to deliver lessons in a fun and engaging way. He has a genuine passion for maths and a caring approach to our childs wellbeing. We are pleased with her academic progress in this area and grateful for the additional support that SENsational tutors provide.

    We are lucky to have such a fab caring tutor who really brings the experience of learning to life and makes it fun and accessible in a truly meaningful way.

  • Paul Newman

    Our 15 year old son has Selective Mutism and high levels of anxiety. He also has a diagnosis of Autism. He is unable to attend a main stream school therefore we looked for a home tutor from SENsational Tutors using their profile matching service. Ste has been working with our Son this past year and has been incredible in his approach to making our son feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during their sessions and will continually adapt his approach to what he teaches, based on the positive response he receives. He has found ways to communicate without putting pressure on our son to speak and will always send us a video message before a session to outline the plan for that day so that our son does not feels any anxiety with anything unexpected. We have seen our son excel in learning about subjects more relevant to his interests rather than a main steam curriculum and is very relaxed with Ste’s calm and caring approach. We would highly recommend Ste and SENsational Tutors.
