Our English Programmes

Our English programs are designed to help improve literacy skills such as reading, spelling, phonics, sentence structure, grammar, vocabulary and expression.

We use an excellent reading scheme, which is designed to improve fluency and confidence in reading. Many students show a dramatic improvement in reading ages once they have followed this scheme.

We tutor children from the ages of 5 to 16. Which means we cover Key Stages 1, 2,3 and 4. We also help prepare your child for the 11 Plus, SATs and GCSE exams.

All tutoring is done either in one of our centres in Leigh on Sea, Basildon and Benfleet or we now offer online lessons with the same tutors we use at our centres.

Memorable Quotes

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.”

Anthony J. D’Angelo

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.

John Dewey

All Lessons

All lessons are held in small groups of up to 6 children with the same tutor each lesson providing one-to-one tuition for your child.

It is important to note that we go at their speed and not the speed of the class or whatever a teacher in School might set.

We make sure that they understand every topic that we teach them and if they don’t, we try to do it until they can.

We set them homework based on what they have learnt in a lesson and at a level we think they are capable of doing and one which pushes them to improve and excel.

Parental Concern

When a child comes to us it is because their parent is concerned about their levels of learning or recognise they are gifted and want to push them further than they can be at School.

To do this effectively every initial free trial lesson we offer is not like a free trial of Netflix it is more like an assessment where we assess what their level is now and ascertain where it should be.

Their second lesson is where they begin their journey of learning with us. They are assigned a tutor who will be there for them every step of the way and tutoring every lesson so they can build a good working relationship and understanding of your child. The lessons are personalised to your child and what works best for them. The homework we set them is also personalised to them.

So, our ethos is that any child can be tutored as long as they want to learn no matter what their ability or how low on confidence they feel. We find what works best for them and drive them forward to increase their skill set and to give them extra confidence in themselves.

What Works?

Some children need a lot of pushing and some need very gentle guidance on their learning journey.

Whatever works for your child you can feel confident that one of our highly trained tutors will get the results you and your child are hoping for and they won’t get lost with our guiding hands.

Our team of highly experienced and trained tutors cover a multitude of ages, levels and abilities when it comes to tutoring English. Starting from the age of 5 up to when they take their GCSEs at 16, we always have the tutor you need for your child.

In addition to tutoring we also offer revision sessions and mock exams spread over four consecutive days. We realise that children after a while can forget some of the topics they have learnt or feel they are a bit rusty. Our sessions help refresh their memories; give them confidence and help prepare them for the exams themselves.

Exam Anxiety

The exams themselves can cause great anxiety for around 40% of students.

If you are anxious or stressed about anything and you are put in a pressurised situation where you have to perform a task like an exam you are naturally not going to perform at your best.

A lot of students find that their performance is affected. How often after an exam did you chat with your friends and discuss how it went?

Quite often there will be at least a couple of questions you forgot how to answer or just screwed up but after the exams when the anxiety and stress levels start to subside you start to think to yourself either that you really did know the answer or that you should have done it a different way.
