To ensure our students and parents receive the best possible support, we are always looking at ways to improve our tuition classes and learning programmes at our centres. The best way we can do this is by asking children what they think of the support they receive from EducateFirst.
Today, all students from each subject and age group had the chance to have their say in our tuition feedback session The comments and feedback reflect the amazing work done by our tutors and managers. Below are some of the comments we received:
What we are doing right
“EducateFirst rocks!!!” (KS3 student, aged 11)
“Me and friends like coming here. We like our teacher.” (KS2 student, aged 8)
“I learn lots of new things in Maths.” (KS2 student, aged 9)
“I find work hard at school but my teacher here helps me a lot.” (KS4 student, aged 15)
“My school work has really improved and I understand a lot more during class in school. The classes here have really helped.” (KS4 student, aged 16)
“My teacher is very nice. She helps me with my school work and we play lots of games with numbers and letters. It’s fun coming here.” (KS2 student, aged 7)
“The tests we have to do are hard, but they are good as it shows us what we are learning.” (KS3 student, aged 12)
“Me and my sister come to EducateFirst every week. We learn lots of things in Science, Maths and English. Science is my favourite.” (KS2 student, aged 10)
“A range of topics are covered which are similar to what we do at school. We get the chance to ask the tutor questions and can even bring in our school work to get help if we do not understand it.” (KS4 student, aged 15)
What we can do better
“Computers should be available for all students.” (KS3 student, aged 12)
“We should have more competitions every week and win some good prizes.” (KS2 student, aged 9)
“Can we have separate revision lessons for our exams? This will really help me as I always understand things in class but find exam questions hard.” (KS4 student, aged 14)
“Would be great to have classes for A-level. My brother came last year when he was doing his GCSEs and would like to come again.” (KS3 student, aged 13)
“There should be a break time after every lesson.” (KS2 student, aged 10)
The vast majority of the feedback was extremely positive, but we are after some constructive feedback as we know there is room for improvement – no body is perfect. We will of course fully assess the feedback from each student to determine what changes can be made to the tutoring sessions.
