What parents say...

Also can I just say a massive thank you too, Ellie was a bit apprehensive before her first session but when she came home last week she was absolutely buzzing, she loved her time spent there and felt so much happier even after just one session. So thank you, she has been so worried about her exams especially English.
"Thank You."
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!
Mrs S McGee
“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.

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!

GCSE Maths
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.  
We are so pleased that Mahera has got a FULL BURSARY for the local girl’s high school in Portsmouth.  She has been to your centre before for tuition but we came back in November so she could get ready for the exams.   She has worked so hard and Linda has really encouraged her in her writing!  Thanks so much!
Mahera's Mum
Prezton has done really well and we are very proud of his achievement so thank you all again
Mrs A Laborde

She says “I Love to Learn Now!”

Mariana brought her daughter 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 “She 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.”

“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
James Hannon
“Joshua got his GCSE results today and I just wanted to let you know how he got on. He got an 8 in English Language and a 7 in English Literature, he has always struggled with English and wouldn’t of been able to achieve these amazing grades without yours and Adam’s help, if you could please let him know how Joshua done. So once again thank you for all the work you did with him.” Emily (parent) 2021

Help and Advice for Children with ADHD

Recently I read ‘The Boy Crisis’ by Warren Farrell, an American author who writes about family, the gender crisis and relationships.  Whilst not all children with ADHD are boys, the vast majority are, and he had some interesting things to say on the topic.

Here are five tips, inspired by general advice for managing ADHD, that parents can consider.ADHD

1. Establish Consistent Routines:
– Create structured daily routines to help children with ADHD anticipate and manage their activities.
– Consistent schedules for meals, homework, playtime, and bedtime can provide a sense of stability and predictability.

2. Encourage Regular Exercise:
– Physical activity is known to have a positive impact on attention and behavior.
– Engage your child in regular exercise, such as sports, biking, or swimming, to help channel excess energy and improve focus.  It is important for parent’s to engage in activities with children.  Especially in what we would call rough-and-tumble play with fathers.   This Farrell claims, counter intuitively, helps the development of empathy and condifence.

3. Limit Distractions:
– Create a conducive environment for concentration by minimizing distractions.
– Designate a quiet study space, reduce screen time, and establish clear rules about electronic devices during homework or other focused activities.

4. Provide Clear Instructions:
– Break tasks into smaller, more manageable steps and provide clear, concise instructions.
– Using visual aids, charts, or written lists can help children with ADHD better understand and follow instructions.

Well done5. Implement Positive Reinforcement:

-Parenting styles can vary due to gender and family experience.  It is important that parents work as a team in this.

– Recognize and reward positive behaviors to motivate and reinforce good habits.
– Offer praise, encouragement, or small rewards for completing tasks, demonstrating self-control, or following routines.

It’s important for parents to work closely with healthcare professionals, educators, and specialists to develop a comprehensive and individualized approach for managing ADHD. While these tips draw from general advice on ADHD, specific strategies for each child may vary based on their unique needs and circumstances. Always consult with professionals who specialize in ADHD for the most accurate and effective guidance.
