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!

“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!

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!

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

“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

How Can TV Interfere WithYour Child’s Learning?

Does TV Help or Hinder?

Most homes nowadays have more than one TV screen. They are part of the furniture and have been for two or maybe three generations. My dad was a TV repair man, so we were never without one when I was a child!

However, at our education centre we advise parents to take the TV out of children’s rooms.  For children to develop vocabulary, expression and story telling skills they need to read and hear stories.  Our experience is that TV does not help this process.

Some researchers have found that watching television can result in delayed development, emotionally and mentally. In fact it is recommended that before the age of 2 children should not watch television at all! Let’s look at why;

  • TV replaces interactive learning experiences which are vital in the early years.
  • TV overloads the visual part of the brain, depriving other areas such as, creativity and imagination.
  • TV uses too many fast paced images, which means children find it difficult to be patient and focus for any length of time.
  • TV does not need a response, no skills are needed and so none are developed. Important skills such as planning and judging are neglected
  • TV interferes with building relationships and interacting with real people.
  • TV replaces physical activity with sedentary, leading to unhealthy lifestyle habits.

This is hard for us parents to take because as we all know TV is also the best babysitter the world has ever known! So what can we do? Well, here are some suggestions;

  • Keep under twos away from the TV!
  • Limit viewing, no more than one or two hours a day
  • Choose programmes and DVDs which you think are suitable (monitor the violence and content).
  • Absolutely no TV in any bedrooms as this has an impact on sleep.
  • Watch and discuss together, promote a critical approach to what they see.
  • Think of alternative activities.

As children grow and learn they need interactive experiences with their physical surroundings and people. A screen wastes precious time and does not provide these experiences. Children who watch television before the age of two often experience language delay and perform poorly later on at school.
