WHAT ARE THE CLASS SIZES?
Class sizes vary between 2-5 students.
Learning in groups is a very effective strategy for enhancing learning. This is because groups share unique insights and learn from each other. Class members can also teach confusing concepts they understand to other class members.
IS THERE A REGISTRATION FEE?
No, unlike many tutoring services we do not require a one-off registration administration fee.
HOW DO YOU RECRUIT TUTORS?
All of our teachers are well educated, with Enhanced DBS checks and references – safeguarding our children is our top priority. We have a screening and interview process. We are highly selective and test teaching skills, rapport-building and empathy skills, reflection skills and genuine commitment to children.
CAN I MEET A TUTOR OR SEVERAL TUTORS BEFORE I COMMIT?
Our size is deliberately small, as we offer an intimate personalised service, so we get to know our students. We have a small staff pool so that we can maintain that well-informed, hands-on approach.
WHAT MATERIALS AND RESOURCES DO YOU USE TO TEACH?
Our tuition and courses are highly tailored to each groups/individual child’s needs and follow the UK syllabus. We use a wide variety of teaching resources aimed at capturing the interests and creative strengths of each individual. We always aim to create a learning experience that is as rich as possible, whilst ensuring that the content of each tutorial is relevant to the agreed goals for each group/individual. This might include: fine-tuning subject knowledge, past examination papers, mark schemes, samples of work and model answers.
HOW DO I MAKE A PAYMENT?
Payment is due per calendar month in advance by either direct debit or bank transfer.
AM I TIED INTO A CONTRACT?
We ask for a month’s notice in writing of the intention to stop tuition. This allows us to bring the tuition to a satisfactory close, ensuring that your child is not in the middle of a learning cycle, and that the relationship can be completed powerfully for everyone.
Generally, we establish at the outset of tuition how long you would like your child to be supported for, and an estimated end date, whether that be the end of an academic year or at the completion of certain examinations.
