Core subject tuition

Our study programme generally focuses on building skills and confidence in students in the core subjects encountered in Primary education. It can help to extend the abilities of high achieving students as well as encouraging the most reluctant learner to become more confident.

Many of our students need help with numeracy and literacy but we can also offer a range of tuition for other core and non-core subjects, either as part of a group or on an individual basis. Our study programmes are all personalised and tailored to the individual needs of each student.

In addition to mathematics and English we can help with:

Numeracy and literacy

Mathematics and English lay the foundations of all learning. A good basic grasp of them is essential for future learning and life after school. Our core subject tuition aims to support National Curriculum learning within schools, boosting the confidence and knowledge of our students and ensuring that they have a complete understanding of the basic knowledge expected at each stage in their schooling.

We can help on a short-term basis to enable students to grasp a specific topic they are struggling with or provide year-round support across the entire curriculum. Topics that we often cover within our sessions are:

Numeracy - number and place value, basic calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), fractions, decimals and percentages, measurement, shapes and their properties, algebra, ratio and proportion, statistics, position and direction.

Literacy - reading, comprehension, writing, spelling, composition, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation, spoken language, handwriting.

SATs boosters

All children in school years 2 and 6 currently undertake Standardised Assessment Tests (SATs) at school in the final term of each Key Stage. These tests are used to help determine the progress made by children and the Year 6 test results are used to inform Secondary schools about the achievement level of each individual pupil before they begin at their new school in Year 7.

We offer SATs Booster tuition sessions in the lead up to the tests, particularly for those in year 6. Our sessions focus on recapping, reinforcing and extending existing knowledge as well as developing confidence in the core subject areas that will be tested.

One to One Tuition

While we often prefer to offer tuition as part of a group all our tuition is available on a one to one, individual basis as well. In some circumstances, to extend the abilities of high achieving students or to encourage the most reluctant learner for example, this is a better option and will boost learning even quicker.
