We're here for you:

What type of tuition is best for you? Childrens tuition - home - class - group - online

We offer four types of tuition: class, home, group and online tuition. The type of tuition you or your child may require very much depends on your individual needs and what you hope to achieve from personal tuition. Some students prefer classroom-style teaching where they are able to interact with other students as well as convey their thoughts and receive feedback, whereas others may benefit from one-to-one tuition at home. To help you decide which tuition type is most suitable for you, below is a summary of some of the benefits associated with the four kinds of tuition available.

Class tuition

This is our most popular teaching format, preferred by both parents and students.

  • Available to children aged from 5–16 years.
  • Offers a friendly, interactive learning format.
  • Classes are available in core subjects: Maths, English and Science.
  • Proven to improve literacy and numeracy skills, and develop a sound understanding of science-related topics.
  • Work covered in our classes is based on the National Curriculum for each Key Stage.
  • Key Stages 1–3: work is set by the tutor at the beginning of each lesson.
  • Key Stage 4: students have the choice of participating in the work covered and set by the tutor on a specific topic or bring their own work to the class and seek the help of our tutors.
  • Perfect for students who struggle to focus on their school work at home.
  • Tuition is delivered at our learning centres every weekend.
  • Class sizes can vary, ranging from 2–10 students. The average number of students in a class is 6, with a maximum number of 10. The class is led by at least one qualified tutor and a teaching assistant where necessary.
  • Fixed price tuition: ONLY £6.25 per lesson. FREE registration. No hidden charges.
