What parents say...

The way you teach is brilliant.  Kids really enjoyed working/learning with you.  Hope to be back next year.  Thank you once again
Mr & Mrs Renji
“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)
Firstly, I would like to thank yourselves and your staff for all your help and dedication to helping my daughter Saoirse with her maths.  She has shown an improvement with her confidence at attempting to handle the mathematics she is give by her school.  And I feel this is due to the staff at your centre, she had a very rough year in Year 4, with her very unsympathetic teacher and you all helped her through that.  For that I’m very grateful.
Mrs R Wall
Thank you very much for your help and support in helping Tomek achieve his goals in English
Monica (Tomek’s mum)
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
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
“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
She loves coming, and sees that it helps her at school.  Her scores are going up all the time and recently she got three class awards in three weeks, she says this is ‘Thanks to you.
Mrs C Walker
“I Love to Learn really helped me prepare for my entrance exam.  I give I Love to Learn 10/10.  I Love to Learn helped me understand pie charts, algebra and story writing.  I enjoyed coming to I Love to Learn and would love to come back in the future.”
-Ollie, Student in Portsmouth
We were super happy with your approach and B settled in so well. She looked forward to the tutoring and got a lot out of the sessions. Without a doubt her confidence has grown and I wouldn’t hesitate to use I Love to Learn again in the future. Many thanks, Cat
We are Super Happy!

How We Teach GCSE English

GCSE English Language requires students to read and understand both fiction and non fiction texts. They need skills which help them to extract information and explain writer’s techniques. They are then asked to produce a range of written work which displays their fluency and ability to use techniques and skills. Achieving a good result in GCSE English now means achieving a grade 5, with grade 4 being a standard pass. Our GCSE tuition is designed to give students the confidence to write with fluency, structure and purpose. We encourage students to become aware of the requirements for GCSE English Literature and to learn the required texts and quotations. We can help with planning and expressing a response to a question in a clear and well structured way. We look at poetry which involves understanding poetic techniques, structure and form. This subject is often difficult for students and we love to help students get to grips with this area in particular. Tutoring English GCSE depends a great deal on the interaction between tutor and student and so we take time to listen to the individual needs of our students.
