Why
Primary Tutoring?

Tutoring can be a game-changer for young learners, offering benefits such as boosting confidence, strengthening core skills, and providing expert guidance in preparation for exams like SATs. At KS1 and KS2, students are expected to develop foundational skills across a range of subjects, with a prime focus on Mathematics and English.

We are dedicated to nurturing this growth. Our experienced tutors use their extensive skills and strong subject knowledge to lay a firm foundation for learners. This way, they can step into secondary school with confidence and a head start on the path to becoming high achievers.

It's not uncommon for challenges encountered at the GCSE level to stem from gaps in understanding of fundamental concepts introduced in primary school.

We Make Learning More Efficient

Improving engagement is a key factor when tutoring at Key Stage 1 and 2. To achieve this, we have integrated many features into our learning platform that make each lesson more unique. From dynamic whiteboard sessions to detailed worksheets and homework annotations, we've designed every aspect to nurture curiosity and active participation.

We believe in celebrating every milestone in the learning journey. Students often want to visualise their progress, so they know their hard work amounts to something. To make this possible, we send monthly and termly reports, documenting each learner's progress and we award prizes to recognise effort.
