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
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!

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
Thank you very much for your help and support in helping Tomek achieve his goals in English

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)
Dylan had always struggled with very poor handwriting.  After only a few months teachers can now read his writing and he feels more confident.  His coordination problems have been recognised “Thanks to your suggestion,” and this has helped at school.   It has made a big difference to his schooling as he enjoys it much more now.  
Samantha WildingParentPortsmouth
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)
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
“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!

Do you tutor exam preparation for selective school entrance?

Yes, but please do contact us well in advance to give your child the best chance of success. This will allow time to prepare thoroughly, without too much stress. Parents begin thinking about extra tuition up to 2 years before the exams.

How do I know if my child is having trouble with their school work and what can I do about it?

Parents’ evenings are often the best way to find out if your child is struggling with their studies. You can also try communicating with your child and ask which areas of Maths and English they struggle with.  Constantly asking for help with homework or refusal to do it, tears and tantrums, can all be telltale signs that the work is  too hard for them. We provide a free educational assessment and will give our professional opinion about where we see your child having difficulty. So, book an assessment today if you want to discuss supporting your child further.

How do I know that my child will improve?

We guarantee to work with your child until they feel confident to flourish and no longer feel daunted by the problematic area. Combined with our expert tutoring, their school work and extra homework from us; your child will feel supported, encouraged and will make progress in the areas you were concerned about.

How long will it take to solve my child’s problem?

Every child is different, so it’s important they come in for a FREE Assessment so we can come up with a plan and goals for them to work towards. There is no contract or obligation to attend for a long period of time, but we’ll regularly provide parental feedback so you know exactly how your child is doing. Every session, that your child attends, is individually planned and adapted to suit their particular needs. We aim to unlock areas of difficulty as soon as we can for each child.

Can you tutor my child with a Special Educational Need?

We are not a SEN centre, but because we tailor our lesson plans to the specific needs of each child we have taught children with diagnosed ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, Autism and others in the past.  If your child falls into one of these categories it’s very important you get in touch and set up an interview with us and an assessment. Then, we can establish whether we can effectively tutor your child.

Our Portsmouth Centre has wheelchair access and the use of a disabled toilet. We want to offer the best for all the children we tutor, so this is a very important process.  We are always willing to go the extra mile regardless of any special need. Please call for more details.

Do you tutor from home?

No. All of our tutoring is done in our centre so your child has access to all of our top learning packages and technology in an optimal learning environment, without any distractions.

How long is each lesson?

80 minutes. The lessons are broken up in 10-15 minute activities so your child never gets bored.

What times are the sessions held?

There are a variety of times available; Monday to Thursday and Saturday morning, please get in touch to find out more.

Will my child get homework?

Yes. Homework is an essential part of I Love to Learn Professional Tuition. We are aware of other homework from school, so we only set homework which repeats, practises and consolidates the learning in the session. If you have difficulty getting your child to complete the homework, please speak to us.

How should I help my child during my child’s tuition at I Love to Learn?

Children’s attendance must be regular and punctual. You may wish to inform your child’s teacher that they are attending extra tuition and ask for areas we can focus on during the term. With homework, ensure you set a distraction free environment for your child to learn in and we ask for you not to help them if possible. We want to see how well they are doing when we are not there!
