WHERE DO YOU HOLD YOUR TEACHING SESSIONS?

55a Widnes Road, Widnes, WA8 6AZ

Each small group of students has their own classroom.
We also offer online session via interactive whiteboard service. These can be on a small group basis or one to one.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC TEACHING QUALIFICATION?
All of our tutors are adults who are specialists in their fields. They are all hand picked and extensively trained in the UK National Curriculum, various exam boards and 11+ curriculums.
Some are qualified teachers, others hold a degree in the subject they are tutoring in.
WHAT IS THE SESSION STRUCTURE LIKE?
The tutor will take time out to teach your child the topic planned for the session and then will set questions. The answers will be marked throughout the session with individual feedback and tips being given. This happens throughout the session.
The children work in exercise books with these being available for revision.
DO YOU ONLY PREPARE CHILDREN FOR EXAMS?
No we don't. This isn't to say that examination preparation isn't an important part of what we provide, it is just that is only part of what we provide. For many children, we are filling the gaps in their knowledge and this will include examination preparation if this is appropriate. For others, we are helping them fill their gaps and bringing their levels up. Tuition should never be a one size fits all as children all have differing needs and we will aim to help the individual needs of all our students whether this is preparing for an upcoming GCSE, SATS or 11+ exam or whether we are filling the gaps in their education.
ARE ALL THE CHILDREN TAUGHT AS A GROUP?
No absolutely not. Each child has their own personalised tuition plan that is based on their needs. The tutors then prepare for each child as an individual prior to each session. Your child's needs are unique and so should their tuition be. Yes we will work on things like exam technique but we build this into the personalised needs for each child.
We have found that even if you have two children who are in the same set or on the same table at school, they will have different strengths and will find different topics challenging. By personalising the tuition, we are able to support these individual needs and build the support alongside what the children are covering in school to iron out any issues as soon as they arise. We are also then able to tailor the tuition to the individual exam boards, books/plays for English Literature and 11+ exams for the differing schools amongst other areas.
