Tutoring has become synonymous with high-intensity and often counter-productive instruction of schoolchildren and the age at which many children are receiving help from a tutor seems to be getting lower all the time, which has understandably concerned some teachers and headteachers. When we refer to tutoring, in the context of what we do, we are referring not to the intense extra tuition for the very academically minded children and their expectant parents, but to the extra help needed to get your child to a level where they are better able to cope with their regular schooling. This could be needed for a variety of reasons, such as the child being an English language-learner, coming from another country where they haven’t been in a formal schooling environment unlike their English peers, or are just not as far on in their development as others in their year group or class. The approach is fun, active and appropriate for their age and level of development. Examples of the sort of areas we can help with include:

  • Early Years Tutoring
  • Tutoring for children for whom English is not their first language
  • Special Educational Needs, including:

      • Dyslexia and Dyscalculia
      • Struggling Readers
      • ADHD
      • Autism/ASD
      • Asperger’s
      • Down’s Syndrome
      • Sensory Processing Disorder, and others

Lessons are tailored to each child and are creative, making use of games, motivating activities, multisensory techniques to help the children to assimilate what they’re learning, visits to museums and public places, and life-skills based exercises.
