What parents say...

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!

The way you teach is brilliant.  Kids really enjoyed working/learning with you.  Hope to be back next year.  Thank you once again
Mr & Mrs Renji
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.
Mrs R Wall
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!

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.”

Albie had been diagnosed with mild dyslexia and his reading age was around 2 years behind!  The standard in private school is often higher, so we were worried about the Entrance Exams.  Soon after he enrolled he started making rapid progress.  The school say he is now Level  5 in literacy and the teacher can see a lot of difference.  His reading age has shot up and the gaps in maths have been filled in and he has caught up amazingly quickly. It has definitely, definitely made a difference and I have recommended the centre to my friends.

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.”

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!

Dylan had always struggled with very poor handwriting.  After only a few months teachers can now read his writing and he feels more confident.  His coordination problems have been recognised “Thanks to your suggestion,” and this has helped at school.   It has made a big difference to his schooling as he enjoys it much more now.

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!

How Qualified Does A Tutor Need To Be?

Is Your Tutor Qualified?

Tutors WantedThe short answer is, not at all.  Anyone can call themselves a tutor without any qualifications or experience.  It is up to parents to ask and decide what qualifications they would prefer.

Well qualified tutors, with classroom experience and a proved track record, are of course desirable.  However, for a highly motivated students, someone who is enthusiastic about their subject but not a qualified teacher may be a successful tutor.  Generally, for children who are behind or have special needs, parents should look for tutors who are skilled with that particular need.  This generally comes with experience.

Qualifications to look out for:

Degrees such as BSc (Science Degree), BA (Arts Degree), MA (Advanced Degree), PhD (Very Advanced Degree).

Teaching Qualifications, PGCE (Teaching Qualification), BEd(Education Degree), GTP (On the Job teacher training) -These all lead to  if teachers complete a Newly Qualified Teachers year of experience (NQT) QTS (Qualified to teach in UK schools),

Many private tutors have qualified teaching status (QTS) although you don’t need to be a qualified teacher to be a private tutor. Some teachers tutor as a sideline to their classroom teaching job and some become private tutors after retirement.

Rest assured that, at I Love to Learn Professional Tuition, all our tutors have a teaching qualifications (QTS) and lots of classroom and tutoring experience.  We give full training and our centres are all OFSTED registered.  We are also members of The Tutors’ Association which is a professional body.
