It’s fair to say that the 2019/2020 academic year was probably the strangest we’ve ever seen, so here’s to hoping the next one gets off to a smoother start. For many children, returning to the classroom will be a daunting experience. We’re here to try and make that transition back to school as smooth as it can be.
Children returning in September will need a combination of emotional support, alongside academic catch up. Neither one of those things should be sacrificed at the expense of the other. Our team of specialist tutors are here to help with the transition, so that students regain confidence and are ready to do their best.
We have tutors in mindfulness and yoga, as well as the more traditional academic subjects. This pairing puts us in a unique position to support students’ needs at the current time. We work closely with families to find out what their individual needs are, and our tutors design unique learning packages around what each student’s goals are.
To start with, we offer a free consultation to gather as much information as we can about the student: where they’re working at, what they enjoy and the type of person they are. We then look to match them with their ideal tutor – someone who will be able to guide their studies but who we also think will fit in well with your family. Over time, many of our tutors also become mentors to students and someone they look up to.
We keep in touch, not just after the first lesson, but on an ongoing basis. You receive a weekly report with a breakdown of what your child is working on and how they are progressing. This gives you a clear picture of how you too can support them and where they may need extra encouragement. We work alongside schools and are guided by the national curriculum to ensure that the support we offer mirrors (and goes beyond) what’s taught in the classroom.
Tuition is a great way to build confidence so that students feel comfortable with what they’re learning and ready to take on new challenges; especially when so much school has been missed, having some one-to-one time is a great way to re-build skills.
