Introducing our Primary Tuition Services

Our tutors proudly nurture and inspire

During the early years of education, children begin to discover where their strengths lie, start to find out what they are interested in, and unearth difficulties and challenges for the first time. Tuition at this age can provide the attention and guidance needed for children to thrive academically at later stages, and a positive experience of education will inevitably inform a child’s attitude towards learning. Our tutors love to see children develop confidence and enthusiasm and we have seen consistent excellent results thanks to our approach.

Subject Areas

The main areas of focus for general primary tuition are:

Maths

Mastering the basics of numeracy equips children with important skills for the future and can be a lot of fun to learn along the way.

Children at primary level will be taught how to understand numbers and how to solve problems in various formats.

English

Learning to read and write is a huge milestone in a child’s education.

It gives them the tools to communicate effectively, enables them to read widely and discover new points of view, as well as encouraging their imagination.

Reasoning

Reasoning concerns a child’s general ability to solve a variety of problems.

The subject is split into verbal and non-verbal sections: the verbal sections involve use of language while the non-verbal sections are based around visual information, such as continuing a pattern of shapes.

General Support

During the early years of education, children begin to discover where their strengths lie, start to find out what they are interested in, and unearth difficulties and challenges for the first time.

Tuition at this age can provide the attention and guidance needed for children to thrive academically at later stages, and a positive experience of education will inevitably inform a child’s attitude towards learning. Our tutors love to see children develop confidence and enthusiasm and we have seen some excellent achievements as a result.

Not only will a good tutor be able to identify a child’s strengths and play to them, they will also create an environment in which a child can try new things and build their confidence in unfamiliar areas. Primary aged children often need variety and stimulation for their interest to be sparked, and our tutors are constantly striving to find methods to engage their students in new and interesting ways.

SATS Preparation

SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) are carried out at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 in all state schools and are structured to reflect each child’s progress relative to their peers.

The SATs are often the first formal tests a child sits during their time at school. Benefitting from tuition at this stage can really calm any nerves and ensure your child is able to perform to the best of their ability.

Additional Services

To complement tuition, we are also able to offer comprehensive Learning Assessments, which focus on English and Maths and consider a child’s key academic ability relative to their peers. Tuition is often particularly effective when coupled with a Learning Assessment, as our qualified assessors not only measure attainment, but also seek to identify each child’s unique learning style and personality, recommending suitable resources and approaches for future learning. Similarly, these assessments can also shed light upon future school choices, highlighting the most appropriate learning environments suited to each individual child.
