The Good Schools Guide review of SENsational Tutors
Unusually (to say the least), the story begins at a campsite disco in Holland when founder and director Joanna Gibbs was a child. ‘There was this boy with Down’s Syndrome that nobody wanted to dance with,’ she recalls. ‘He had this infectious smile and that was it for me.’ SEN has been her passion pretty much ever since. In many ways, she grew up with SEN – not only are there a lot of physical disabilities and mental health issues in her own family, but she remembers with evident joy watching everything from wheelchair basketball to one-armed archery while volunteering at the Rotary International disabled sports championships.
The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants offer assessments in English, maths and in reasoning. Most schools assess these subjects when considering a child for a place. This is especially important for children coming from different countries with different educational systems. But there can be many reasons for checking a child's progress in these basic skills.
