What parents say...

“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
Thank you so much for helping me with my maths!  I have come along much more in maths lessons at school! Hopefully, depending on whether I need help when I go to Secondary School I might come back again. (I hope so)  Thank you again. Madison.

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

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.”

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.
Ms R Temple
“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)
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.
