Prior to starting the English course, pupils attend an Open Day during which we undertake an assessment to establish which course your child should attend based on their ability. Our courses take into account both age and ability level as a benchmark for assessment. It must be noted that our assessments are just a guide and are by no means an indication of potential - we are aware of different home, school and tutoring environments which impact on assessment. Some pupils may have covered elements already and would benefit from further challenge. Likewise, we are able to support any gaps in knowledge.

Although English is complex to learn, English is used and taught throughout the world at school and for business. We also tutor pupils for whom English is not their first language, in the key fundamentals of vocabulary, spelling, grammar and spoken English.

We teach the foundations of English which incorporate grammar, spelling, creative writing and different styles of writing as well as comprehension. We are able to develop the latter from a very young age with basic texts so children can answer questions on content. understand content. Pupils remain with us for a long time and, as they grow older, the material becomes more complex and challenging.

We provide English booklets containing quality material. The tutor teaches and guides the pupil through the worksheets in the English booklet. The aim is to stretch the pupils, further preparing them  to excel at school or for important assessments.

Pupils enjoy their academic learning experiences and return term after term.

We recommend pupils to sign up also for our Maths course, to ensure development of potential across both subject areas.
