Prior to students undertaking the English course, they would attend an Open Day, where we undertake assessments to establish which level ability the student should attend. Our courses are based on level ability and the age of the child. The two combined, compliments where the student is and provides the basis of what more they need to learn. We use this as the benchmark for the assessments. It must be noted that these assessments are just a guide and are by no means fixed. We are aware students are exposed to different learning environments, whether this be their school, home or private tutoring. This could impact on the assessment in that there maybe some elements they may have already covered and we aim to establish the elements they are yet to learn which are the missing gaps.

 

      

 

The English Language is complex to learn and one which is used and taught throughout the world and there is also business English which many learn so they can transact in English. We also tutor students whose first language is not English and here again the key fundamentals of vocabulary, spelling, grammar and spoken English are taught.

We aim to teach the foundations of English which incorporates grammar, spelling, creative writing and different styles of writing as well as comprehension. The latter being fundamental as we start this process from a very young age with a basic text for a child to understand and think about the meaning of the contents so they can answer the questions. Student remain with us for a long time and as they grow older the material becomes more complex and challenging.

We aim to provide English booklets containing quality material and the tutor teaches the examples. The student is guided by the tutor, and then they work through the worksheets in the English booklet. The aim is to stretch the student further preparing them for those all-important fundamental assessments.

We make the lessons fun for the students so they enjoy the learning experience contributing towards life-long learning for each student.To receive the optimum results, they return term after term.

We recommend the student undertakes the Maths and English course to really develop their full potential.

Arithmetic can be fun and exciting once a child understands the rules. We aim to work with our students so they understand. The best way for the child to learn is through repetition. This takes time and all students need to undertake a small amount of work each day to ensure they master mental arithmetic.

At Little Big Leaders many students remain with us for many years and we aim to provide stimulating material which will not only enhance the learning for each student but will also be fun to undertake. Many students work hard and we aim to provide them with the skills which enables them to break down the information and answer questions with confidence. Once a child understands the requirements then everything automatically should fall into place. Many students undertake the 5+, 7+ or 11+ and gain entry to some of the most prestigious schools in London.
