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!

Prize Winner

Times tables are really important in math and life. Here’s why:

1. Practical Use: We use multiplication in everyday situations like shopping or dividing things evenly among friends. Knowing times tables helps us quickly and accurately calculate these things.

2. Building Blocks: Times tables are the foundation of maths. They’re essential for understanding advanced concepts in algebra, geometry, and calculus. Without them, it’s harder to solve complex problems.

3. Mental Maths Skills: Memorizing times tables improves our ability to do calculations in our heads. It boosts critical thinking and makes us more confident in our math skills.

4. Academic Success: Knowing times tables helps us understand math better and perform well in exams. They make learning new maths operations easier and give us a solid foundation for higher-level maths.

So, how can we master times tables?

– Practice! Regularly use flashcards, online games, or math drills to reinforce multiplication facts and improve recall speed.
– Look for patterns and relationships between numbers. This helps us understand the logic behind times tables and makes solving problems easier.
– Make it fun! Find creative ways to practice, like creating songs or using manipulatives, to make learning times tables enjoyable.

Remember, mastering times tables is key to excelling in maths and everyday life.

Competition Time

See how fast can you roll the times tables on your hands?  Roll them through, time yourself and enter our competition.

Year 2& 3 roll 2x 5x 10x 11x

Year 4,5 & 6 roll 3x 4x 6x 8x
