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”

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.

“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

“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”

Improve Your Reading Comprehension with I Love to Learn

Fun With Reading Comprehension!

At I Love to Learn Professional Tuition, we are often asked by parents about how to help children with their reading.  Here are some readingReading Comp comprehension skills to master.

  1. Preview:

Before diving into a text, take a moment to preview it. Skim the headings, subheadings, and any bold or italicized text. This gives you an idea of what to expect and activates your prior knowledge.

This is a skill you might use when reading a newspaper.  Most people don’t read every word, they just skim the headlines and read the articles that they are interested in.

2. Ask Questions:

Engage with the text by asking yourself questions as you read. Who are the main characters? What is the main idea? Questioning helps you stay focused and encourages deeper understanding.

It helps if someone else can do the asking so that you have to explain it to them.

3.Visualize:

Create mental images of what you’re reading. Imagine the setting, characters, and actions in your mind. Visualizing helps you connect with the text and enhances comprehension and retention.  What would it feel like to be in the story?

Good reading leads to good writing.  Practice visualization and you will become better at creating good description yourself.

4.Summarize:

After reading a section or passage, pause and summarize the main points or key events in your own words. This helps consolidate your understanding and highlights any areas that need further clarification.

5. Monitor and Adjust:

Be aware of your comprehension as you read. If something doesn’t make sense, reread or look up unfamiliar words. Adjust your reading speed and strategies accordingly to ensure maximum comprehension.

Remember, practice makes perfect! These strategies can improve your reading comprehension skills and make your reading experience more enjoyable and rewarding. Happy reading!
