What parents say...

“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
Thank you so much for helping me with my maths!  I have come along much more in maths lessons at school! Hopefully, depending on whether I need help when I go to Secondary School I might come back again. (I hope so)  Thank you again. Madison.
Mrs H Breen
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.  
Alex
Thank you very much for your help and support in helping Tomek achieve his goals in English
Monica (Tomek’s mum)
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.
Laura (Thomas’s mum)
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!
Mrs D Wilson
Maths is fun

“The GCSE Maths Tutors Are Great.”

T’anna came to us as her mum had seen us on Facebook and decided to call.  T’anna, now in year 10, had always struggled with her maths.   In four short months however, she has improved so much that, the school want to put her up for the Higher GCSE paper!!  Kerry, T’anna’s mum says ” She has come on leaps and bounds, I am so pleased with the progress. The tutors are great! It’s a convenient location and the assessment is easy to arrange.”

Kerry RobertsonParents
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.
Ms R Temple
“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”
Lewis (student)
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!

Email; tutors@ilovetolearn.co.uk

Winners Announced: Monday 19th September

Prize Giving: Saturday 24th September at our ‘I Love to Learn Professional Tuition Centre’ in Portsmouth.

To help children get started and to encourage them to ‘have a go’ here are some top tips;

Top Tips

  • Try and imagine a scene as your character would experience it. Showing the reader what the character; sees, hears, tastes, smells, feels. This can be really powerful.
  • Think about how your characters move, speak, and react and write choosing words carefully to explain this.
  • Use similes to give readers more information that help you describe your images more fully.
  • Break up you story into paragraphs to show a change of place or time. Planning your story will really help.

Lastly, don’t worry too much about spelling as you can edit your writing later on. Enjoy writing and have fun creating your own story!

We are so excited about this opportunity to celebrate creative writing and hope our enthusiasm will inspire local children to write this summer.

Many Children Fall Behind

‘Research shows as many as one in three children can fall behind as a result of a seven-week break from the classroom.’

For most children, summer is a time to leave classes and homework behind. While summer is a holiday from school, it does not have to be a holiday from learning. The summer holiday is great for recharging your children’s batteries, but if they are not using the skills and knowledge that was learned in the classroom, they will find themselves struggling when school starts up again.

Skills and knowledge gained throughout the school year fade during the summer months. Research shows that loss of content retention begins within 24 to 48 hours of learning unless the new information is reinforced or applied immediately. That is why, during summer holidays, even the best students forget lessons they have learned during the school year. After a month without reinforcement, approximately 80 percent of what a student has recently learned can be lost.

Gain Confidence

For children who have struggled in school, summer is an invaluable opportunity to catch-up on key skills and feel more confident when they return to class. For students who do well, it is an opportunity to keep their enthusiasm for learning high.

If your child needs help with reading, writing, spelling or maths call Howard or Linda for a free assessment on 023 93 96 86 26 now.

Top Ten GCSE Maths Exam Tips

Maths GCSE Examination Tips

Getting exam ready takes lots of practice.  These tips are to help you tackle the exams and to get the best possible result, they are not a substitute for good preparation and revision prior to the exam.

Imagine: You are in the exam room.  The paper is in front of you.  You have been told to write your name on the front of the paper (please make sure you do this!!).  You are told to begin…how do you feel?

Many students, despite hours of revision, will still feel nervous.  Despite these feelings you can still do well.

GCSEstudentGettting Started

Step 1 – Take a breath

Take a deep breath in and slowly breathe out.  This will give you a moment of calm and stop your heart from racing.  Look at the clock and now open the paper.

Step 2 – Flick through the paper

For about 3 minutes flick through the paper and put a tick against the questions you like the look of and a star against those you don’t like the look of. The ones you have ticked can be tackled first – this will build your confidence and get you warmed up.  These questions will take you less time to complete, so that you can then spend a longer amount of time on the trickier questions.

Having said that, the number of marks in a question is the indication of the number of minutes to be spent on it. 1-mark questions require little more than 1 minute; 2 marks, 2 mins and so on. If a tricky question is taking up too many valuable minutes, it’s okay for you to move on and come back to it later.

Step 3 – Read the Question

Now, answer as many questions as you can.  Once you have answered each question, take a moment to read the question again.  Have you answered the question?  Have you answered the question in the way it requires?  Have you rounded correctly?  Does your answer make sense?  Using this moment can enable you to pick up marks you may have otherwise lost.

Tip 1- Be Tidy or at Least Clear

Make sure your work is as neat and tidy as possible.  Make it easy for the examiner to assess your work and award your mark.

Maths is funTip 2-Use the Calculator

For the calculator exam – use the calculator! Chief Examiners have noted that students sometimes work out calculations manually when they should be using a calculator. Know your calculator prior to the exam, use the one you always use!

Remember to write on the paper any calculation that you type into the calculator as this will give you the extra marks.

Tip 3-Round the Numbers at the End

Write down the figures on your calculator and then make a suitable rounding. Don’t round the numbers during the calculation. This will often result in an incorrect answer.

Tip 4-Are You Sure You’re Right?

If you’re in the situation where you try two methods and you aren’t sure which one is correct, don’t put an answer on the answer line. If you do, the examiner will ignore the working that doesn’t lead to that answer. If you leave the answer line blank, the examiner will mark both methods and award whichever one is lower.

Tip 5-Attempt All Part of Questions If You Can

Look at all parts of a question.  Even though you may not be able to complete the first part of a question, if the second part is unrelated, it may be easy for you to complete.

Tip 6-Cross Out What is not Relevant

For wordy questions, cross out any information that is unnecessary and/or highlight the words that are needed for your calculations.  If it’s relevant make a sketch or a drawing that can help you to think about the problem.

Tip 7-Include Your Workings

If there are 3 or more marks available for a question, then be sure to include your workings (even if the question does not ask for your workings).  You are unlikely to get full marks for just the answer.

Tip 8-Know Your Units!

How many mms in a cm; cms in a metre; metres in a km; etc. Be sure to put your units on the answer line as this is usually worth an extra mark.

Tip 9-Only Write or Draw in the Answer Space

Do not write or draw anything outside of the answer space. It is likely to be missed by the examiner and you will drop marks. If you need extra space to write, draw an arrow indicating where the extra writing is. If the examiner cannot read it, or is not clear where the answer is, you will not get the marks.

Tip 10-Put a Hand Up and Make a Request If You Need to

You should have all your own equipment for the examination, and you should be confident in using it.  However, don’t be afraid to ask for help or equipment if you need it during the examination – your pencil may need sharpening; the batteries on your calculator may run out; you might need tracing paper for that transformations question.  The invigilators are there to help.

We wish you every success!

Where Are They Now?

Having tutored children in Portsmouth since 2005, many of our students have gone on the better things.  Occasionally I notice on LinkedIn or Facebook what people are doing now.  I thought I would share a couple of stories:

Tom Malbon

Tom Malbon

Tom studied English with us over ten years ago.  He says “I would say that the tuition was a big help early on when I was struggling with grammar and spelling and helped me get on track to achieve in later years.”

He is currently in his second year studying BEng Hons Mechanical Engineering at Oxford Brookes University with the aim to achieve a career in Formula one. He is also an active part of the Aerodynamics department at Oxford Brookes Racing as they aim to participate in various Formula Student competitions across Europe.

Great to hear from you Tom!

 

Mary Amalathas

Mary also came to us for help with English and was always a very hard working student.  She recently  started her own Accountancy practice called ‘Accountants247 Portsmouth’ offering variousMary Accountancy services for sole traders, companies and contractors.  She says, “I have a team who help with some aspects of my work. Currently I am also providing interim Accountancy work for a corporate company.”

“Linda had helped me tremendously by going above and beyond in various aspects of preparation for my GCSEs, including a one-to-one for Science which was not even offered by the tuition centre at the time. The only regret is that I didn’t join ‘I love to learn’ any sooner. I can safely say that I got through some subjects like English Literature only because of Linda’s guidance and the techniques she taught me. I am forever grateful to her. Linda takes great care and attention with each child she teaches.”

Thank you both for your kind words!

School Led Tutoring Programme

 

Can I Love to Learn Professional Tuition Help You with the School Led Tutoring Programme?

  1. Introduction to I Love to Learn Education Centre

Opened in 2005 has become the premier service for maths and English after school tuition in Portsmouth.  Since then we have helped hundreds of students turn around their skills and confidence in the area of maths and numeracy.  Our tutors are all fully qualified and experienced classroom teachers.  We now have centres in Portsmouth and Fareham with plans to expand further.   Demand is very high at the moment and we teach a range of  children from Year 1 to Year 11 in both of our growing centres.

studentWorking with Schools

Are you looking for partners to deliver your National Tutoring Programme ?

In January 2020 we were tutoring maths at Havant Academy with small groups of Yr 11 students.   We therefore have direct, current experience of delivering small group tuition in schools.

Over the years we have worked with a number of schools including Ark Dickens Primary (Portsmouth), Priory School (Southsea) and taught many LAC through Action for Children and other fostering organisations.

 

  1. Our Tutoring Programmes

Here at I Love to Learn, we have experience in designing individual programmes for pupils. We focus on either English or maths to boost pupil’s achievement and support them to make more than expected progress. At the moment we are only offering maths tuition at the secondary level.

We provide an individual initial assessment which will baseline student’s current level of attainment.

We then plan a bespoke programme which is delivered by our qualified, experienced teachers using our unique resources.

Additionally, we can track the progress that your pupils make on our plans.

fun and learningSmall Groups

The tutoring takes place in small groups of 3.  We find that individual tuition delivered in small groups reduces the pressure on students, and is more motivating, as they are working alongside others.  We would emphasise that it is not small group work, as each child does different work suited to their level of ability.

Effective feedback-This is delivered by the tutor monitoring and marking the child’s progress throughout the session.  The tutors are trained to give praise for good effort and progress, when it is deserved.  Stickers and stamps are given out as/ when work is completed to gain prizes/rewards.  Our computer tuition resource gives instant feedback to tutors and children.

Homework-we set homework that is often a repeat of work that has already been done in their session.   We use this to check that children can complete it independently and to analyse areas of weakness that need to be re-enforced.   This also links with parts of the programme carried out in the centre and is therefore progressive.

ICT-All the students use ICT in the lessons with the sessions being planned and delivered with our numeracy programme.  This includes a combination of written and computer activities, but all marking and progress is recorded.  Right and wrong answers can be tracked.  Many of the activities are first written and then re-enforced with a computer activity .

Base Line Assessment:  we test each child’s reading age, spelling age and writing/maths skills depending on the subject/subjects requested.  We use this to plan where each child starts in our tutoring programme.  The work is tailor made to target the child’s specific weaknesses.  With greater success the child’s confidence and enjoyment returns, and they are able to re-engage with the learning process.

  1. Delivery of Secondary Maths & English Programmes

KS3 Numeracy

  • 60 minute session
  • Warm up:Tables
  • Core Maths 1 to 9
  • Core Skill Builder

Re-Assessment and Reporting

A base line score is recorded at the beginning of the pilot.

Individual Report-work done, and progress is recorded on our paper plans each lesson.

We re-assess at the end of the period and provide a full report to show progress.  This can be sent hard copy or by email.

We are looking forward to working together with you!

 

 

11+ Entrance Assessment for January 2022 Portsmouth and Fareham

Independent Schools in Portsmouth and Fareham

We love helping children prepare for 11+ common entrance assessments. I thought it might be a good idea to make sure everyone has the dates they need.

The entrance exams always cover maths and English to a high level. Children are also usually tested on their verbal and non verbal reasoning. These tests are designed to be more difficult to prepare for as they are not a school subject. Verbal reasoning is concerned with language and words problems while non-verbal reasoning includes logic, shape and number patterns.

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!

How to Analyse Poetry for GCSE English Literature?

Here is some advice for students or GCSE English Literature

Get Familiar With the Exam

GCSESuccessEnglish Literature GCSE is divided into two papers. Paper 2 (2hrs 15mins, 60% of the marks) is in 3 parts. Parts B and C are on poetry.

B- You will answer one comparative question on one named poem printed on the paper and one other poem from your chosen anthology.

C- You will answer one question on one unseen poem and one question comparing it with a 2nd unseen poem.

How to Analyse Poetry for GCSE English Literature

  1. What is the poem about?

e.g ‘This poem is about the narrator’s experience of the war’.

 

  1. What is the purpose (or theme/message)of the poem?

  • Why has the poem been written?

e.g. ‘The poem has been written to enable the reader to feel the trauma of war’.

 

  1. What emotions, moods and feelings are being communicated?

e.g. ‘The general atmosphere the narrator creates is one of fear and the futility of war’.

 

  1. What techniques does the poet use to create the emotions, mood or feelings?

  • You will need to identify and name different technical terms that are used in the poem.

e.g. ‘The poet uses repetition of the word ‘fear’ to emphasise how frightened everyone was.

Techniques that may need identifying are:

Form- The rhyme and rhythm of the poem, often relates to the overall theme. (Also changes in the lengths of lines or verses).

Imagery- Does the poet use language that creates an image in your mind?

Structure- What is the order in which ideas are created? Is there a key point at which the mood or focus changes?

Literary devices- Poets use numerous devices to communicate their ideas and emotions. These can include: similies, metaphors, alliteration, personification, enjambment, caesura, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, oxymoron and rhetorical questions.

 

  1. What do you think about the poem?

e.g. ‘ The poem makes the reader feel the narrator’s fear from the battle as well as the overall futility of war’.(Avoid using ‘I’).

– Are there other ways the poem could be interpreted? (Ambiguity)

Helping Confidence Bloom-A Case Study

Confidence

Eleanor’s mum said, “With the disruption during Covid, Eleanor lacked confidence in some subjects. I wanted to improve her self-belief in her academic abilities.  Eleanor felt good about the free assessment and actually enjoyed it!

hands upSince enrolling, Eleanor says that the tutoring at I Love to Learn has given her more confidence to speak out in class, especially in maths. She is happy to ask questions during the sessions and the homework is a repeat of (some of)the lesson which helps her remember the learning.

“It’s Been Like Watching a Flower Bloom”

The greatest change in her, since coming to I Love to Learn, was her confidence in her own abilities.  Slowly, after 3-4 months, she suddenly burst out having engaged with, and enjoyed, the creative writing at school, after they studied Macbeth. Ellie was so proud of her work that she brought it to show Linda. Fantastic!  And the girl, that was always so negative about maths, has realised she can do it and now engages so positively in school.  It has been like watching a flower bloom.  Thank you so much. ” explained Eleanor’s Mum.
