  • My son has loved working with his tutors from Spark. They are friendly, consistent and great role-models for my boy. He has improved at school, but the biggest change has been his attitude – he is more driven and focussed on his goals. Highly recommend!

  • My daughter worked with Sarah from Spark Tutoring through her GCSE and A-levels. She would not have achieved the results she did without them. They built a real friendship, and Sarah become a role model through those challenging years. Thank you Spark!

  • My 12 year old daughter worked with an online tutor from Spark Tutoring and it was amazing. I was reluctant at first, knowing how restless my girl can be, but her tutor was engaging and energetic – making the lessons fun. It also made things much easier for my wife and I, having someone else involved to ensure she was meeting all her remote-schooling requirements.

  • Every interaction with Spark was worthy of 5-stars. From the easy booking process to the simplicity of weekly lessons and automated payments, working with them made my life easy and my child happy! What more could a parent ask for?

We work with our team to match the perfect tutor to your child’s needs.

Meet a tutor

The magic happens.

We schedule in the first lesson and send you all the details you’ll need by SMS and email.

In the first lesson, your tutor will do an assessment on your child to see how they are doing against the standards of the national curriculum, and build a learning plan to work towards moving forwards. They will send you a copy of the assessment outcomes by email and share some goals that they will be working towards with your child.

We encourage weekly lessons for the best results – but ultimately the length, timing and frequency is up to you.

You are free to communicate openly and directly with your tutor about scheduling and timings. All payments will be through Spark Tutoring – details will be provided after the first lesson and only if you are happy to continue.

After every lesson you will receive feedback from your tutor by email, outlining what was covered and how your child responded in the lesson. Every 10 lessons your tutor will provide a detailed progress report, keeping you in the loop at all times!

The perfect Special Needs tutor for your child

About Our Tutors

We are proud to be the home of some amazing tutors who have undergone specialised training on handling special needs learners. This is in addition to their subject experience and qualifications that showcase their expertise in the relevant subjects.

We also offer Tutoring London, Special Needs Tutoring, Tutoring Newham, Tutoring Lewisham, Tutoring Hackney, Tutoring Camden and across the UK!

We also understand how different theory teachings is different from managing a real special need student on the ground. So we expose the tutors to multiple trainings and workshops where they get practical knowledge and are equipped to give individualised attention to special needs learners.

Since our first year of private tutoring serving physically challenged students, we also learnt that these children are born differently, so what works for one may not work for another. So here are some key qualities that draw the line between our tutors at Spark Tutoring and others:

Collaboration with other Professionals

Our tutors are trained to note different levels of special needs in our students based on physical assessment and the reports from the guardians to ensure we have a customised approach that best fits the individual child.

We often collaborate with other professionals, from speech therapists to psychologists, who help us understand every student better to give them comprehensive support. Although we like notifying parents about this step, just in case they have a personal doctor whom they prefer over other professionals.

Fast at Adapting New Technologies

Despite the frequent workshops and training on what to expect, we understand that some situations have no clear guide on their management. But, our tutors are creative and very sharp individuals who can quickly adapt to any new technologies they may need to familiarise themselves with the student’s learning process.

In some cases, we take advantage of different technologies and employ creative ways to keep the learner engaged and active during the sessions.

Effective Communication Skills

When hiring tutors, we often emphasise the importance of clear communication, especially between our stakeholders, the parent, student and learner’s teacher in school. This even comes in more handy when we need to communicate a specific illness or state that needs clarity for the best approach to be taken in line with your child’s learning experience.

Flexible Teaching Approaches

At  Spark Tutoring, we offer our special needs learners the utmost flexibility for effective learning methods. So, our tutors are flexible enough to modify and frequently adjust the lesson plans to ensure they accommodate different changes in the student’s needs over time.

While our core service is to help the student academically, we will continually help the learners build confidence in themselves and learn to fight for their rights, irrespective of their surroundings.

About Our Online Services

While focusing on reaching the extreme ends of the UK in delivering our private tutoring service, we also consider the fact that special needs learners may not always make it to our physical classes. We, therefore, offer online services, ensuring all students with special needs can access private tutoring at any time and from any place.

However, we understand that these may need a little more specialised training, especially on the tutor’s end, in order to cater effectively to the learner’s diverse learning requirements. This is why we often employ interactive and engaging multimedia tools to help us keep the students fully engaged and also make the lesson more interesting.

Although the online service can be quite time and cost-saving, you must know that sometimes the student may need parental support to help navigate around the platform depending on their specific needs.

We also advise our parents on the need to assist younger students with our platform familiarisation and any level of technical assistance that there may be.

Our Tutoring Approach

We understand that managing special needs students comes with its challenges. But this is why we make an individual assessment of every learner’s weaknesses, to understand the best learning style approach that will be more effective for them.

From there, we create specialised lesson plans that are inclusive of the relative student’s needs while incorporating multisensory learning approaches to help deepen the students understanding easily. In some cases, the assessment also helps us note specific behavioural changes that may need specific support strategies to counter any challenges.

So whether you have a special needs child in elementary school or in senior school, enrol them today at Spark Tutoring to ensure they receive effective academic and life exposure to help shape their future.

Whatever level of your child is working on, we have the perfect Tutor for them near you!

Frequently Asked Questions:

When is a good time to start tutoring?

There is no better time than now! Remember, tutoring is not just for students who are struggling – it is for all students! Even the brightest of students will be driven to achieve their full potential with the support of a Spark Tutor.

We have students of all ages working with our tutors; from early Special Needs to A-levels. The best time to start working with a Spark Tutor is todayso book your first lesson in under 3 minutes here.

Does my child really need a tutor?

Every student will benefit from the support of a Spark Tutor because we offer so much more than just academic support.

Our tutors have been selected for their ability to motivate and inspire the young people they work with. Your child will grow in confidence, do better at school and gain a life-long love of learning.

A Spark Tutor offers more than just help for those struggling at school – they are mentors that will help your child realise their potential.

Does your tutoring follow a set program? What is the lesson structure?

Every lesson we do is tailored around the unique needs of the student. There are no pre-set programs or courses we follow – it is personalised one-on-one learning, targeting exactly what your child needs every week.

Your tutor will have full access to our resource center – which is packed with thousands of worksheets, textbooks and learning programs. They will use these as they see the need arise in your child.

What ages do you support?

We work with all Primary and Secondary School age students from Reception (Ages 4-5) to A-Levels (Year 13/Ages 17-18).

How do I get started?

Getting started is easy. Book online in under 3 minutes or speak with one of our team members and we will get it all organised from there. We work with our tutors to match your child up with the perfect tutor for them and send you all the details for the first lesson. No payments details are required upfront – we will check in with you after the first session to see how it went and you can submit payment info then!

Are your tutors qualified?

All our tutors go through our unique training and accreditation process, and have passed all required reference and child safety checks (DBS) to work with us.

We do not require our tutors to be degree qualified to work with us, and in most cases are younger, University age tutors that excelled in school themselves. We actually find students respond best to this age group of tutors; they can build real authentic relationships and the school curriculum is fresh in the tutor’s mind, creating a mentor-mentee relationship rather than one of authority from a teacher.

How do I track my child’s progress?

You will receive feedback by email after every lesson letting you know what was covered and how your child engaged with the content.

Every ten lessons your tutor will also provide you with a detailed progress report, providing an insight into their development, where they are still struggling and what they are working towards over the next ten lessons. This progress report can also be shared with their classroom teacher or any other family members.

Do you offer any discounts?

We provide a 5% discount for any family that does 2 or more hours of lessons per week. This can be with siblings, multiple subjects or multiple lessons.

How do we find the right tutor?

Getting the match right between student and tutor is so important. When you book, we ask you a number of questions about your child to get a better understanding of both their academic needs and personality. We then match these with one of our tutors that we believe will be a great fit for them.

Obviously, the best test of any tutor is meeting them face to face, which is why your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you don’t think the tutor we have selected for you is the right one for your child, there is no charge and we will work with you closely to find a tutor better suited to them.

Where does the tutoring take place?

Our lessons happen in your home or online in our online classroom, allowing your child to connect with their tutor face-to-face from any device at any time.

How do I pay?

We have the world’s easiest payment system. You simply submit your debit or credit card information once after the first lesson and you are charged 24 hours after each lesson occurs.

We’ll send you a notification shortly after each lesson with the scheduled charge and a receipt 24 hours later after the payment has been processed.

There are no contracts, prepayments or minimum commitments in partnering with us.

Do I have to have lessons every week?

Growth is all about consistency, so we encourage weekly lessons for best results.

However, this is not a requirement in partnering with us. If you need to miss a lesson every now and then, no problem – just let your tutor know at least 24 hours before a scheduled lesson and there will be no charge.

How long do the lessons go for?

Most lessons go for an hour, with many families opting for 90-minute lessons. Ultimately the length of the lesson is up to you – just chat with your tutor and let them know how long you would like to work together for.

When can I start?

It usually takes us 2 to 3 business days to get everything lined up, so a good rule of thumb is to book now to get started next week.

We will keep you updated on any potential delays, and of course let you know by SMS and email once we have scheduled the first lesson.

How much does it cost?

Do you offer a free trial or lesson?

Your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you aren’t happy with the tutor we match with your child then there is no charge for the lesson.

This allows you to meet your tutor completely risk-free, but it also means that your tutor gets rewarded for their hard work when they do a great job. It is win-win for all!
