A good foundation is key to helping students master the English language. The Tutor Surgery provides face-to-face English tuition in Blackfen. We help students with the basics such as reading and writing up to more complex skills such as reading comprehension and essay composition. Our tutors have a personable and tailored approach to help students gain confidence in the subject matter and focus on their studies.
At the Tutor Surgery, we always start with making children comfortable with their tutors. We have a Meet the Tutor scheme where our tutors first invite students and parents over to their home for an informal 10-15 minute appointment. This is done a few days before the first lesson to make the child familiar with their tutor and learning environment.
Our tutors then assess children’s skills in reading, spoken language, and writing with a special focus on spelling, grammar and punctuation. We enrich students’ vocabulary with quality age-appropriate literature and help them practice writing with exercises. Whatever they need to work on to prepare for year-end exams and the Key Stage 1 and 2 SATs, our tutors are equipped to help them.
We believe in the role of parents helping pupils’ progress. That’s why we regularly update parents of their children’s progress to help them understand how they can encourage and support their child.
Tutoring gives students individual attention, helping both students who are struggling to keep up and advanced students who no longer find their current lessons challenging. English tutoring can also help students stay on track during breaks from school. Our tutors can give tips and tricks to gaining proficiency in reading, writing and speaking in English. Aside from reinforcing what children are learning at school, we also help them develop studying and learning skills.
Our tutors are experienced with the needs of students aged 5 to 11. Understanding how juggling schedules can be difficult for families, our tutors keep their timetables as flexible as possible. Learn more about we can help with your child’s progress. Book trial lessons today.
