What parents say...

“We also had a parent’s meeting at his school earlier this week.  I am pleased to say that his maths teacher was very impressed with not only his work, but also his attitude toward it.  I can only say that this is because of the wonderful service you and your colleagues have given.  Thank you so much for this.  Ellis is really enjoying his time with you and also seeing how well he is doing and this has resulted in a positive attitude towards learning.” James (parent) 2021

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!
“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)
She is a quiet girl and I was concerned that her poor spelling was not being corrected.  When she saw the progress Bella was making in such a short time, I enrolled her for Maths as well!   It has transformed her thinking and she now has the self-esteem to ask questions in both numeracy and literacy.

Thank you for all your support with our son, Thomas. His hand writing, spelling, maths and reading is progressing beautifully. I would highly recommend your setting to anyone who wishes to give their child a boost or to work on specific learning goals. It has been invaluable. All your tutors are warm, welcoming and professional and Thomas is always made to feel valued. Positive praise and lots of stickers, stamps, rewards, prizes and certificates give that extra special touch to reward and recognise the children’s efforts. Thomas is certainly always proud of his achievements from your centre.
Laura (Thomas’s mum)
“I would just like to say I have nothing but praise for I Love to Learn and all the tutors, not only has Dottie already improved with her maths work in the time she has been there but her confidence is so much better too. I want to thank you all so much, she has absolutely loved it, and without a doubt I would not hesitate in bringing her back.” Kayleigh (parent) 2021

Thank you for your lovely card.  You have helped with my creative writing and vocabulary.  I have grown in confidence and I appreciate your help.

“Thanks for all your hard work with Rebecca Kivlin. She has started Milton Cross this week. Rebecca is in the top set for maths and science, and the second group for everything else. Without coming to Love to Learn she would never have achieved this.  Thanks”

Understanding Learning Difficulties

New Picture (5)Here Are Some Common Term Explained by our Expert Tutors

The term ‘Learning Difficulties’ tends to strike terror into parent’s hearts. It can bring up all kinds of worry and guilt about how they ‘got it’. The truth is that everyone is different, and everyone learns in different ways.

Here is a quick guide some of the jargon.

Dyslexia

Dyslexia is the most well know, and is difficulty with reading.  Everyone finds reading difficult to some extent at first, so really it is about degree.  Many children have some problems with ‘acquiring language at the word level’ as it is defined. Most children overcome this quickly, but some children get stuck and find it difficult to make progress.

Dysgraphia

Not to be confused with this is Dysgraphia.  This would be a broad range of problem, everything from handwriting and forming letters, to organizing and making sentences make sense when writing.

ProudStudentDyspraxia

If your child tends to fall over, has trouble balancing or buttoning a shirt and other practical skills; this may be described as Dyspraxia.  They may have problems holding a pencil or with handwriting, but it can be a more global problem with how the brain coordinates the body.

Dyscalculia

More recognized now than it used to be is Dyscalculia.  This is a kind of ‘number blindness’.  Some children find it hard to memorise number facts (2+2 =4) or have terrible problems with money or time.

Aphasia

Dysphasia or aphasia is difficulty with the spoken language.  How we convey information through language is very complicated, but some children find it hard to tell a story or understand directions and instructions.

Dyslexia Problems reading, writing, spelling.
Dyscalculia Problems doing math problems, understanding time, using money
Dysgraphia Problems with handwriting, spelling, organizing ideas
Dyspraxia (Sensory Integration Disorder) Problems with hand–eye coordination, balance, manual dexterity
Dysphasia/Aphasia Problems understanding spoken language, poor reading comprehension

The good news about all learning difficulites is that people who study the brain now believe that it is much more ‘plastic’, or able to change, than they previously thought. Therefore it is great to identify issues early and start helping your child to overcome them as soon as possible.
