1. When can my child start?
You can start at any time of the academic year and your child(ren) will make progress. However, to get the most out of the booster classes we recommend starting at the beginning of the academic year.
2. What year groups are the GCSE Science Booster classes for?
3. How long are the booster classes?
Our GCSE Science Booster group sessions are 2 hours and 10 minutes long. Students study for a 1 hour lesson, then a 10-minute break followed by a second 1 hour lesson.
4. How many pupils are there in the booster classes?
5. How will you teach my child(ren)?
Our booster classes are designed to compliment all the major examination boards with a particular focus on boards utilized by local secondary schools. There is a significant overlap in content and material required between the different examination boards, especially since changes to GCSE specifications to the new 9-1 system.
6. Will my child(ren) receive homework?
Yes, students are given homework for science on a weekly basis (except for assessment weeks). All homework is based on what our learners have learnt in the lesson and is designed to reinforce their learning. Once returned, homework is marked and explained with further examples.
7. How much homework will my child(ren) receive?
Homework will vary on a week by week basis. However, if a child would like additional homework, the tutor can make the relevant arrangements within reason.
8. Will I be informed regularly of my child(ren)s progress?
9. What qualifications and experience do the tutors have?
All our GCSE tutors are subject specialists and the vast majority are also qualified teachers with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our GCSE tutors have experience delivering exam board specific GCSE matrialial for their specialist subject, be it biology, chemistry or physics , within a school-based setting.
10. What will they be taught for science?
We have carefully planned weekly lessons for the whole year. Topics that are taught are all in line with the current exam board specifications for science. A list of topics can be found at the top of this page.
