What ASEND Tuition Is

We are looking for inspirational tutors to support children and young people in Hertfordshire. We support pupils with SEND who have struggled to stay in the classroom, who feel too anxious to go to school or whose needs aren’t sufficiently supported at school. We tutor children in a range of settings including homes, schools, community centres and out in the community. You may be an experienced tutor or teacher or have experience of working with children in a therapeutic way.

ASEND tuition is replacing school for these young people and is normally part-time, taking place during school hours, five days a week.

Our pupils have a range of individual interests, needs and abilities, and we work very hard to match the tutor with the child who can most benefit from their skills and expertise. We welcome tutors and people from a wide range of backgrounds including qualified teachers, therapists and those who have worked with children and young people in supportive ways.

About Our Young Person

We are seeking a friendly and engaging tutor to provide one-on-one support for an autistic 11-year-old boy with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs in Royston. He has not been able to attend school recently but is very keen to build on his learning and we are looking for someone to build up his confidence. He has several interests including cooking and climbing, he enjoys using Roblox and YouTube and loves spending time with his hamster.

Structure and routine are very important to him and his new tutor will appreciate and work with this. He will need an experienced tutor who is able to teach English, Maths and Science and provide structure, positive approaches, empathy and low arousal. The right candidate should have a good understanding of autism and SEMH, be creative, adaptable and able to implement strategies that will support a positive outcome for him.



Have some experience with SEN; autism, ADHD, and SEMH.


Ideally have experience working with vulnerable pupils or who have a therapy background


A passion for helping pupils overcome any barriers to learning and difficulties with engagement


The ability to build a rapport and strong relationship with children and their families


Prior experience in assisting children with their learning, can motivate and inspire pupils, and apply a person-centred approach to your work.


Creativity and adaptability in your approach to solving problems.


Ability to build strong relationships with pupils and their families.


ASEND is a highly specialist SEND business, placing dedicated SEND professionals in schools and services throughout the UK.

Since being established in 2011, ASEND has emerged at the forefront of leading SEND businesses and has successfully placed professionals in different schools, colleges and services across the country. Pioneers across the sector, we have helped to institute a unique and fresh approach to the teaching and learning of SEND pupils, many of whom have seen remarkable progress.

In 2019 we were asked to support our first pupil at their home because the school felt they couldn’t meet his needs any further and they stopped attending. That pupil then successfully transitioned into a new school place and we were asked to support another young person. Over the next three years, we have supported children and young people across numerous London Boroughs, Local Authorities just outside London and various schools. Many of them made it into a new school or returned to their school with the support of our bespoke tutoring service.

We see ourselves as a SEND company rather than a recruitment agency. Meaning that we do more than just staffing for SEN education. Our Directors all have a unique understanding of SEND and between them share a wealth of knowledge and experience unparalleled in the field. Our team all have a passion for helping young people with SEN overcome barriers and progress. Your experience with us and our young people will therefore feel very different to what you may normally expect as a result.
