What parents say...

Maths is fun

“The GCSE Maths Tutors Are Great.”

T’anna came to us as her mum had seen us on Facebook and decided to call.  T’anna, now in year 10, had always struggled with her maths.   In four short months however, she has improved so much that, the school want to put her up for the Higher GCSE paper!!  Kerry, T’anna’s mum says ” She has come on leaps and bounds, I am so pleased with the progress. The tutors are great! It’s a convenient location and the assessment is easy to arrange.”

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!

“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”

Firstly, I would like to thank yourselves and your staff for all your help and dedication to helping my daughter Saoirse with her maths.  She has shown an improvement with her confidence at attempting to handle the mathematics she is give by her school.  And I feel this is due to the staff at your centre, she had a very rough year in Year 4, with her very unsympathetic teacher and you all helped her through that.  For that I’m very grateful.

“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”

At the time of writing this testimonial, my daughter has had only 5 sessions and her confidence and ability has increased significantly!  (Now) she talks of enjoying maths and of her abilities in maths instead of her inabilities, participates more in maths lessons at school and is keen to do her maths homework, both from school and from the sessions.  As a parent I am thrilled that her confidence has grown significantly and would recommend I Love to Learn without hesitation.

Sofia says “I Love to Learn Now!”

Sofia’s mum brought her to us as she was having a few problems with maths at school.  She liked it so much that now she comes for English as well!  Mariana says that now “Sofia is more confident with math now and she’s coming to I Love to Learn for pleasure.  She is very happy with her teacher, she says she is very kind and patient.”

Thank you very much for your help and support in helping Tomek achieve his goals in English
Monica (Tomek’s mum)
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!

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.

Avoid Summer Learning Loss

 

For most children, summer is a time to leave classes and homework behind. While summer is a holiday from school, it does not have to be a holiday from learning. The summer holiday is great for recharging your children’s batteries, because if they are not using the skills and knowledge that was learned in the classroom, they will find themselves lagging behind when school starts up again.

When they return to school in September after the long summer break, students can find themselves struggling to catch up. Skills and knowledge gained throughout the school year fade during the summer months. At I Love to Learn, we have found that loss of content retention begins within 24 to 48 hours of learning unless the new information is reinforced or applied immediately. That is why, during summer holidays, even the best students forget some of the lessons they had learned during the school year. After a month without reinforcement, approximately 80 percent of what a student has recently learned can be lost.

Now it is also true that children do need a break to rest and do other things.  In fact most learning does rebound after the holiday to overtake the previous level.

For children who have struggled in school, summer is an invaluable opportunity to catch-up on key skills and feel more confident when they return to class. For students who do well, it is an opportunity to keep their enthusiasm for learning high.

FUN SUMMER LEARNING TIPS

We never stop learning so here are some ideas to help encourage our children’s learning and have some fun this summer.

Learn about time: allow children to be the family timekeeper and get them to wear a watch every day.

Learn about money: do a car boot sale with your children or they could start their own business (e.g. making and selling lemonade).

Learn about measurement: read recipes, use scales and cook delicious food together.

Learn about the past: by letting them interview grandparents or an elderly neighbour.  This can really bring ‘history’ to life.

Improve your writing: by encouraging them to keep a diary every day.  Children can maintain their writing skills and capture many memories for the future.

Practice your reading: Take part in the Library Service reading challenge which rewards children for reading a minimum number of books.

Also, as the new school year approaches it may be useful to discuss routines and agree how to organise time, work and anything else which need to be done.

Finally, if they still complain about being bored, try saying “well I guess I haven’t given you enough chores yet!” and see what happens.
