Why Primary Tutoring?

 There are many ways that tutoring helps young children. Whether by boosting confidence, building core skills or preparing for exams e.g SATs. At KS1 and KS2, the learners are expected to develop basic skills through a wide range of subjects. At Shalom Education Tuition, we primarily focus on the teaching of Mathematics and English. Our experienced tutors use their skills and strong subject knowledge to establish a secure foundation for learners. Ensuring that they step into secondary school well prepared in advanced, to enable them to be high achievers. 

Often times, poor GCSE results is due to a lack of strong understanding of the basic principles established during primary school. We aim to prepare each child to fulfil their full potential throughout their time in education.

We Make Learning More Efficient

Improving engagement is a key factor when tutoring at key stage 1 and 2. Therefore, we have integrated many features into our learning platform to make each lesson more unique. Some will involve a whiteboard and others will involve worksheets or homework annotations. We keep track of progress made alongside a description of their interactions and development in the lesson.

We’ve also implemented visual tools to encourage students to want to learn for longer. Students want to visualise their progress, so they know their hard work amounts to something. Our digital library allows learners to gain points, level up and win badges by studying, completing quizzes and exceeding milestones.
