Tutoring Students With Dyspraxia: The A Team Tuition Methodology
Tutoring Students Who Have Dyspraxia – The A Team Tuition Methodology
Dyspraxia means that learners are faced with physical disadvantage when it comes to learning tasks due to neurological development. They may have difficulty when it comes to sitting and working in a learning environment and they may also feel a ‘knock on’ effect when it comes to feeling behind other learners within their cohort. This impacts their achievement across a range of subjects studied at both primary and high school levels and can make life very difficult for parents and carers who may become despondent at the journey their child must travel on the road towards academic and social achievement.
Tutors at A Team Tuition undertake a range of training modules and professional development sessions as well as working closely with parents and schools to develop a positive working relationship with the students that they teach. Specialised and relevant activities and lessons are created so that all students may feel a sense of achievement and work towards self-set goals that they can modify and adapt over time.

Often, students who have dyspraxia experience low self-esteem and confidence in aspects to do with their learning and social lives. They may see themselves as ‘apart’ from their peers and this may develop into a fixed mindset when it comes to their learning. The founder of A Team Tuition experienced his own learning difficulties at school and this spurred him on to look towards creating an environment where all students can feel supported and strive to achieve, regardless of learning challenges.
You can find a tutor near you for students with dyspraxia and employ our services either in the comfort and safety of your own home or via an online learning platform.
