The Love Tutoring Festival 2 is taking place 24th-28th January 2022
Judy will be delivering an accredited CPD workshop all about teaching Neurodiverse Pupils Maths. Join in live, or watch on-demand.
They want to speak to as many different people with as wide a range of experiences and circumstances as possible to try and formulate better policies for councils to implement.

Now taking Bookings for CPD Masterclass Workshops.
Are you starting out on your Tutoring journey and unsure how to effectively teach younger or less able children online?
Or, are you an experienced teacher, but transitioning over to tutor online and hesitant to do this confidently?
If the answer to either of these is yes, you might be interested in attending one of the one-off online CPD Masterclass workshops that I run.
I am now taking bookings via Eventbrite for the next set of workshops which are running in September and October.
Want to understand more about home education?
Today I interviewed Ilana King from Education Pathfinder who is a home education expert, both as a parent and as an educator. She explained that there are as many styles of home educating as there are children.
We had a fascinating chat about home educating and teaching Neurodiverse children.
What do Neurodiverse children often love and excel in? Art, creativity and science… Therefore the concept of offering small group lessons to children with similar learning differences but not necessarily exactly the same age was born. Topic-based lessons full of fun! Each session focusing on practical enrichment activities that inspire and encourage children to think, problem-solve and above all, understand the ‘hows? and whys?’
This week I took part as a panellist on a live Q & A session where we discussed What does a ‘Professional Tutor’ look like? I joined three other very experienced Tutors (Tracy Landsberg, Jay Shurley and Jo Broadey) who are also like me in The Tutors Learning Network where we support each other with networking and quality CPD each week.
We discussed four main points that came together to explain what we think makes a ‘Professional Tutor’. The tutoring industry is currently an unregulated one, and this means that there are no hard and fast rules that anyone setting up as a Tutor must follow.
Home learning during the pandemic can be a stressful experience for parents and children alike. If your child is struggling with a Specific Learning Difficulty, (SpLD), such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD or ASD, there are added difficulties to cope with and greater patience often required by parents.
Dyslexic children may need additional time to complete tasks, help with reading and recording, and may find live lessons move too fast.
