What parents say...

“I Love to Learn really helped me prepare for my entrance exam.  I give I Love to Learn 10/10.  I Love to Learn helped me understand pie charts, algebra and story writing.  I enjoyed coming to I Love to Learn and would love to come back in the future.”
-Ollie, Student in Portsmouth
We were super happy with your approach and B settled in so well. She looked forward to the tutoring and got a lot out of the sessions. Without a doubt her confidence has grown and I wouldn’t hesitate to use I Love to Learn again in the future. Many thanks, Cat
We are Super Happy!
I would like to thank you for the enthusiastic way in which you have helped Vicky gain confidence in her abilities to learn.  She has been a different child since coming to you and has a more positive view now!

We brought him to the centre in Year 6 because he just had no idea about maths.  This year won the ‘Most Improved in Maths’ certificate for his year.  He also came top of his class in 2 out of 3 maths exams.  Coming to here is the best thing we ever did!

I was told at school that Harrison had fallen about 2 years behind in reading, writing and spelling. Harrison took to it straight away.  He has made fantastic progress and is meeting all his targets.  He loves the points and prizes that he collects for working so he comes out buzzing after every session!

“Dear Howard Thank you so much for all these lessons you’ve been giving me!  They really have improved my work at school and now I can put all your help to good use with my SATs.  Thank you so much for everything! From Lewis”
Lewis (student)
Alex had been tested in Year 4 for dyslexia and he came out mildly dyslexic for spelling.  He has a poor short term memory, and we were concerned about him going to Senior School with these problems. Alex started off a bit ‘anti’, but now he agrees that his writing is better and the improvement has been commented on by teachers.  We are so pleased he is getting professional help, and are especially pleased that he now see the benefit and is self-motivated. He now is now asking for help with his Maths too!
Mrs D Wilson
Thank you both so much for all the support you have give our Darcey.  she really has grown in her confidence with her maths and you have defo given her the foundations to grow.  She is very excited about starting senior school in September and I am sure we will be back in the future for more support for her or her younger sister.  Big, big hugs.

5 Top Reasons to Get a Tutor

  1. Confidence

The number one reason to get a tutor is to build a child’s confidence.  As we all know, anyone who loses confidence in their abilities often switches off and stops learning.  Maybe the teacher is moving too fast, or maybe it is a concept that they don’t get first time.  Alternatively, they may start getting things wrong which re-enforces a downward spiral.

When your child says ‘I can’t do maths,’ or ‘I hate writing,’ it might be a time to think about getting extra help.

  1. Frustration or Hating School

For whatever reason, some children’s frustration with learning leads to tears and anger.  Homework or classwork might be a problem.  If a child is finding it difficult to read for example, they are not going to be able to access most of the others subjects either.  If they are struggling in maths, they may not be able to do the homework that is given to the rest of the class.

Finding a good tutor who can diagnose the educational causes can solve a problem for the whole family.

  1. Moving House, School, Family Changes

Any change, even if it is for the better, is stressful.  An increase in stress will always reduce a child’s ability to learn for a period of time.  Therefore, changes such as moving house, country, school or family changes often lead to gaps forming in a child’s educational development.  If they happen to be essential building blocks, this can develop into a problems later on.

  1. Preparing for Big School

If pupils are behind, in any significant area, at the end of Primary it may be difficult to catch up at the Secondary level.  Transition from Primary to Secondary school is a major change in teaching styles.  In Primary Schools, pupils are all in one class, taught mostly by a single teacher.  Secondary school, although more stimulating, can lead to pupils forgetting or not practicing skills learned at the Primary level.  The challenge is greater, the number of teachers is greater, but therefore, so is the difficulty in catching up.

A tutor can help a child, either before Secondary School, or outside the Secondary classroom deal with these issues.

  1. Exam Preparation

Getting ready for exams is always a good time to get a little extra help.  11+ Common Entrance Assessments, SATs and GCSEs require a lot of extra work and are important milestones for our children’s future.  If parents and children want to do their best it is often worth investing in specialist help to give that boost in performance that may be needed.

Really experienced tutors will have helped many students through their exams and will be know what is required.
