PRIMARY SCHOOL TUITION
Starting at a new primary school can be tough for children and getting used to homework assignments is tricky. To help your child’s education get off to the best possible start, we offer a range of classes in numeracy and literacy. These classes, personalised for our 5 – 7 year old students, are aimed at providing them with a solid understanding of Maths and English, which they can build and expand upon in their coming years of education. Our classroom format is particularly useful in raising confidence and it allows the students to develop their social interaction skills. We match our tutors to the personality of the pupil by means of an intricate selection process. These tutors are enthusiastic and positive young people with a passion for sharing their knowledge and teaching.
Our reliable and committed tutors are selected following a thorough interview and testing process to ensure their safety and knowledge in the required subject areas. We aim to help build lasting and meaningful relationships between our tutors and their pupils, inspiring them to learn in a fun, friendly and exciting environment.
During the final year of Key Stage 2, all Year 6 students will take National Curriculum Tests, commonly known as SATS, in English (reading, writing and spelling) and Maths (mental arithmetic). Most will also take tests in Science and all the results are extremely important, as they are used to not only assess the performance and progress of the students, but they may also affect the “set” peer placement of the child for the next phase of their studies.
We recognise this and help prepare the students for the pressure they face at test stage. Level 2 SATS have an expected attainment level of 4 and we aim to achieve and exceed that level with all our students.
KEY STAGE 3 TUITION
The step up from Primary into Secondary education can be a big jump for some pupils and this is possibly the most important 3 years of your child’s education. Our tutors are there to act as role models and guide their pupils through these educational transitions with academic excellence. Our rapport process evaluates the interests and personalities of the pupil against our tutoring candidates to ensure that the tutor can build a productive relationship and positive environment for the pupil to learn in. Either way, we often see the greatest results in this age group as students discover they significantly improve, be it directly compared to their peers or more satisfyingly against the expectations of the school and indeed themselves.
We understand the importance of attaining a high level of academic achievement on the run up to GCSE’s. For this reason we believe tutors who are fully experienced and highly qualified at this level can support their pupils and better identify the issues facing them while building a structured plan to move forward and achieve their goals and dreams.
KEY STAGE 4 GCSE TUITION
Key Stage 4 is arguably the most challenging two years in a student’s school career as it is of course geared towards entrance into a range of external examinations, most frequently being their GCSE’s. Their development and the academic skills they have learnt in earlier stages will play a big part in their success but they are often faced with huge additional pressures including having to cope with multiple subjects, so as with Key Stage 3, study timetables can become diluted.
We offer classes for both Year 10 and 11 students in Mathematics, Science and English, catering for a range of abilities. As with SATS preparation, we do not attempt to teach the children how to pass the exams, but focus on supplementing the lessons they learn at school, providing support and guidance in the areas that need improvement.
We are not bound by the requirement to cover the entire contents of the National Curriculum, so if our students need intensive help on a particular subject, our staff will concentrate time with them until they are comfortable and happy to move on.
