Tutoring Students With ADHD: The A Team Tuition Methodology
Tutoring Students Who Have ADHD – The A Team Tuition Model
Neurodivergence in the classroom means that parents and their children can be faced with several difficult hurdles to overcome. Within a mainstream classroom setting, students with learning difficulties like ADHD are often left frustrated and feeling disenfranchised – particularly if there is not a lot of differentiation of learning occurring.
A Team Tuition tutors for children with ADHD go through extensive training to ensure they deliver best practice education models for students on the neurodivergent spectrum. Each child can reach their full potential within an intricate system designed to speak to and reach students in a language and through methodologies that they will understand and connect with. ADHD tutoring can take place in the comfort of your own home or via an online platform depending on your requirements.

A Team Tuition’s founder was diagnosed with ADHD while he was at school. He found making connections with his classroom learning difficult. It was this very point of difference that spurred him on to create a system that encompasses all learning needs, enabling children to make connections with the curriculum.
ADHD within a primary or high school setting can manifest in different ways depending on the diagnosis. Impulsive and hyperactive manifestation can lead to distracted and distracting behaviours that present barriers to learning. Inattentive can result in inward-thinking and getting ‘lost’ in thoughts that prevents the student from keeping up with the mainstream content delivery. Both types, including combined, present significant barriers to achievement.

How to tutor a child with ADHD
The experienced tutors at A Team Tuition undertake serious and comprehensive training to ensure best practice delivery. This provides them with specific strategies tailored for individual learning difficulties that they may encounter with students. Content and delivery are fresh, exciting, relevant and engaging – key factors in ensuring that a child with ADHD who is undertaking tuition will be able to enjoy the content and find some success in their learning whereas previously they may have felt left out and demotivated.
In addition to training, tutors partake in frequent professional development sessions which allow them to present parents with a weekly focus so that all parties may work together to track learning development.
Specific techniques and strategies employed by A Team Tuition tutors include:
- Sensory stimulation provided via short learning activities
- Activities that allow the student to stand up and move around
- Drawing and creative activities including making tangible and relevant learning devices
- Discussions wherein the child can unpack their understanding in a comfortable and pressure-free setting
- Tapping into the way that the individual student works and learns to make sessions relatable and enjoyable
- Development of routine and organisational executive functioning skills
- Creation of a sense of autonomy and control over learning and work.
