Love Tutoring Festival 2021 Podcast #1 – Neurodiversity and Accessibility in the Field of Learning & Living Differences

How Tutors Can Use Empathy to Support Students Who Are Disengaged from School

Welcome to the first of our Late Night Live Podcasts from the Love Tutoring Festival. Our Monday podcast welcomed on Nina Jackson, Amanda Cremona and Clio Tucker.

Nina Jackson is ‘the Ninja’.
Amanda Cremona is the tutor that every student with dyslexia needs to work with.
Clio Tucker is the student who ‘failed her A-levels’, and was oh so enriched by it.

The topics discussed were varied and the conversation was aided admirably by participation from our live audience. We began with a true discussion on the advancements of accessibility in tech, followed by the impact of neurodiversity on learning, before drawing the conversation to a close with a look at the widely superfluous nature of homework and the effect it has on many students’ learning.
