We offer a more nurturing approach and help students with special educational needs (SEN) and those lacking confidence or motivation.

You should have experience working with students with ASC and ADHD. You must be able to provide in-person tutoring in the Ash Vale area of Surrey (Guildford) – preference for during the school day.

In addition to this role, we can offer further tutoring roles if you wish for additional tutoring hours.

  • Ability to create bespoke lessons according to the student’s needs

  • Competitive remuneration to attract high-quality candidates
  • A tutor incentive scheme

Candidates will also be required to provide us with 2 professional references plus a parent reference. Please review the safer recruitment policy on our website for further details.

In addition, candidates should have:

  • SEN tuition/teaching experience and a passion for working with students with SEN
  • At least 12 months of relevant tutoring and/or teaching experience in the UK
