What parents say...

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!

“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

Alex says ” I learned more in three months than my whole time in the maths classroom at school. I went from dreading it to feeling much better about being there.” This Summer he was overjoyed to find that he had gone from a Grade 2 in his mocks up to a Grade 4 (C) pass in his final exam.  
“Our children have enjoyed their time at your tuition centre very much, and my wife and I have been incredibly impressed with your professional approach to tuition. Thank you so much for all you have done in making our kids feel comfortable, cared for and safe.” Mr Usuanlele.

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.

“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

“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”    
Julie Powell
I would like to thank you for everything that you have done, and also pass on my gratitude from Lottie because she has learnt she has really benefited from and her confidence in maths has vastly improve, so much so that she now tells me that she looks forward to maths class at school!

winner “We had planned to stop the tutoring after the 11+ exam, but with the next lockdown and more disruption to her education, we quickly relented when she literally begged us to continue going! The sessions are adjusted to her needs and she describes them as ‘really fun’ and she likes it that the work is specific to her level and much more individualised than the class work at school.”
Penny Meeking
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!

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.
