What parents say...

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!
Vicky's Parents
“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
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
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)
Albie
Albie had been diagnosed with mild dyslexia and his reading age was around 2 years behind!  The standard in private school is often higher, so we were worried about the Entrance Exams.  Soon after he enrolled he started making rapid progress.  The school say he is now Level  5 in literacy and the teacher can see a lot of difference.  His reading age has shot up and the gaps in maths have been filled in and he has caught up amazingly quickly. It has definitely, definitely made a difference and I have recommended the centre to my friends.
Jilly (Albie’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
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
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
The way you teach is brilliant.  Kids really enjoyed working/learning with you.  Hope to be back next year.  Thank you once again

Maths Tutoring

Portsmouth & Fareham’s Number 1 Tuition Centre for Maths: SATs, 11+ and GCSE

Numeracy skills are integral to a successful education. If your child is showing signs of struggle in maths then it’s time to act now before it’s too late.

If your child is behind in their maths class or they’re ahead and need pushing to help them succeed, maths tutoring is just what they need!

We can help with areas of weakness ranging from; poor times tables, weak mental maths, problems with arithmetic or difficulty with fractions and decimals.

The key is to design a maths tutoring programme that is appropriate for each child, not the class they happen to be in.   When they can do the work they will feel successful.  When they feel successful they will turn back on to maths and start to make progress again.

How we teach GCSE Maths

The new GCSE Maths exam is extra challenging.  How can we help students reach their targets?

Exam preparation cannot be rushed or left too late. There has been an increase in the difficulty of the GCSE exam recently, and it is important to have enough time to prepare carefully.

Each student will have different needs and different rates of learning.  Each week we will do a variety of tasks that are designed to push on knowledge in each area of maths tutoring.   If necessary we will of course have to go back to basics if we feel they need to be dealt with.  Once the foundation have been built we will be able to build the rest of the house!  Maths is one of those subjects that builds on itself topic by topic.

We always set maths tutoring homework that gives us excellent feedback about the rate of learning taking place.  We also set GCSE type questions regularly to make sure students are getting used to the format.

Finley was struggling with Maths at school when his mum got in touch. She said “It scared him that he was finding if so difficult. I had tried contacting tutors before but there’d been no response. I was really pleased when I spoke to someone and got a free assessment. He enjoys the lessons and has no problem now.”
Linda his tutors says,”He has become more confident and improved a great deal. He works hard and he want to do well each lesson.”
