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!

Finding the Best School for Your Child

A Quick Guide to Choosing the Right School

A child’s education is a very high priority for most parents, but there are so many considerations. Of course, fees, cost of travel, and maybe even moving house have to be taken into consideration. This is a very big topic, so here are some suggestions.

Research: What Are the Options?

School type, cost, location, and culture—there are many factors to consider, so it’s time to make a list. It will need to be affordable, although do not despair; many private schools offer scholarships to the right candidate. If you are thinking of a fee-paying school, make sure you find out exactly how to apply for a scholarship and what the criteria are, as it will vary from school to school. Of course, you will want to choose the best school academically, but there are lots of other considerations.

For all school choices, it is important to do your research. This is much easier nowadays with so many great websites:

Talk About It: Time for a Family Meeting

If the child is older, you might want to consult with them. Where are his or her friends going? Is there a sport he or she wants to play? Where do most students go on to afterwards? Again, the emphasis needs to be on matching the child’s needs to the school, so make sure it is clear that is the aim. Of course, it will be up to the parents to make the final decision, but it is usually good to hear everyone’s opinion.

Visit, Ask, and Meet

There is no substitute for visiting an institution to get the feel of it. Go on the open days, talk to the pupils and teachers, and ask as many questions as possible. This will give you a lot of ‘soft’ information about the ethos and culture which you can’t pick up from a glossy brochure. Are the students confident to answer questions? Do they respect the teachers, and what kind of expectations do they have?

You do not want to feel that you are fighting against the school ethos when you visit and talk to teachers. Your child is going to spend a lot of time at school, which you hope will have a very positive influence on them for much of their early life.

Summary

Choosing the right school for your child involves considering various factors such as cost, location, and school culture. Begin by researching your options using online resources, and don’t forget to look into scholarship opportunities. Engage in family discussions to ensure the school meets your child’s needs and aspirations. Finally, visit schools, talk to students and teachers, and ask plenty of questions to get a true sense of the school’s environment and values.
