Frequently asked questions
What age do you teach?
We teach children from reception age upwards (4 to 18).
How do I register my child?
You will need to book an assessment at one of our centres. After feedback, we will provide you with the enrolment paperwork to give you a chance to read over things and think about your options. We do not enrol any student when they come in for an assessment. We like you to take some time to think about it, and discuss it with your child/ren. You will be informed when you need to let us know, so we have time to prepare a personlised learning programme for your child. If you decide to enrol your child, you will complete the registration process on your child's/rens' first day.
How does the assessment work?
We offer everyone a free assessment. This is not a pressurised test, but more of an opportunity for your child to show us what they know and what they don't know, and where they need further support. Through indentifying strengths and weaknesses, helps to provide support in areas they find difficult as well as challenging them further in areas they are confident in, which is as equally important.

The assessment process can take between 30 mins and an hour and a half, this depends on subject and location. Please check with the centre.

Sessions run weekly and range from 60, 90 minues and 120 minutes (depending on location). Activities are broken down into a 15-20 minute slots to keep students engaged and interested. There are a variety of options available across our centres, please discuss your needs with us.

Do you teach students with learning difficulties?
It is essential that we undertake an initial interview and assessment with your child before we can determine if tuition would be effective for them. Our primary focus is to ensure that your child's learning weaknesses are addressed and not a hindrance to their ability to learn.

Your child’s learning progress will be monitored regularly through formative and summative assessments, in addition to termly tutorials with the student and parents/guardians. Each child is indivudual, and the pace for improvement and progress is different for each child. Regular committment thorugh attendance, homework and working as a team (you, your child and us) taking on board adivice and tips will accelarate learning.
How else can I support my child in addition to tutoring?
We recommend that you inform your child’s school of the additional tuition support they are receiving through us. Please keep us notified of your child’s performance and any areas of concern. It is compulsory that your child attends regularly in order to see any significant progress.
