Tutoring for children of all ages, from KS1 to KS4 / GCSE
It’s never too early to begin helping your child with their learning – and it’s never too late either.
We can support your child across all of the state education National Curriculum Key Stages so please be assured they will receive the best possible support whether they are beginning their schooling, or are preparing for further education.
Regular tutoring helps children in many ways and you can find out more in this short blog post we wrote which may help.

We are also experienced in helping clients navigate the various state and independent schooling options.
Progress from Foundation to Higher
Most secondary schools follow the approach of allocating students to classes based upon their ability (setting), however, for a variety of reasons this can mean that this setting might not be best for your child.
Issues such as lessons missed due to health problems, frequent house moves, or language challenges can hold pupils back, but with focused support they can be overcome.
Once your child is ‘up to speed’ with their Foundation skills they may be able to take a Higher exam paper and go onto achieve the Higher GCSE grade class.
Scholarship Exam and Bursary Applications
Dependant upon your family circumstances and your child’s abilities, it may be worth considering applying for a bursary to support private school fees.
Applications are often made on behalf of pupils hoping to secure a scholarship place and we would welcome the opportunity if you think this might be something that could be relevant for you.
The enforced school lockdowns caused by Covid-19 had meant that many parents found themselves juggling work or furlough whilst also attempting to help their children to study.
We’re sure your child’s school teachers have done the absolute best to provide home-based education, but groupwork on-line is never as productive as individualised one-to-one sessions.
Online tutoring will ensure that the Cornoavirus led school lockdown won’t hold your child’s studies back and thus we can let them thrive in a time that others may well slip back in.
Many parents and pupils have been worried that this key period in their studies may have caused them to fall behind when their schools eventually reopened.
In-school social distancing has also created the need for a phased re-opening of classes, meaning homeschooling may continue longer for some parents than others.
These issues, allied to further disruption to the examinations procedures has meant it’s even more important that pupils top-up their studies, so they’re ready for their next year’s education.
That’s why we’re providing a variety of support services for parents – we can be as flexible as you and your child requires.
Breaking News: Thousands of parents already use tutors
In case you hadn’t already heard, tutoring is the new ‘normal’. Research by the Sutton Trust reveals that every year many thousands of parents employ the services of tutors for their children.
Those parents come from a wide range of backgrounds and income levels and seek out tutors for a broad mix of reasons.
Many of those parents have experienced the benefits of face-to-face tutoring themselves and are recognise that those benefits could be achieved by online tutoring for their own children too.
Early intervention to help address gaps in learning is always best since it takes the pressure off your child – it’s not their fault they’ve not ‘got’ it yet, and with focused tutoring we can quickly get them back on track.
Improve predicted grades
Whether your child is falling behind in their maths skills, or if they’re already at the top of the class and want to be stretched further, they will benefit from focused guidance to improve their skills and results.
This means we’ll be able to focus upon exactly what they might need to study right now, rather than simply where they are in their school syllabus at the moment.
Feeling ‘not good enough at maths’ affects many pupils, across all abilities.
For students for whom English is not their first language, getting to grips with the very many odd and unusual ways of sentence construction can be a constant source of frustration.
We can sensitively identify and help to overcome their limiting thoughts and beliefs so they can grow their English and maths skills and achieve better exam results.
Develop exam and test skills
Students need to know how best to approach taking their maths exams, otherwise they won’t gain the highest marks possible.
We can help by explaining exactly how to work through their exam papers, how best to evaluate multiple-choice questions, how to allocate their time and suchlike.
Early practice on this can help to reinforce those habits when taking final exams.
