We have a fixed ratio of up to 8 children to every 1 tutor within our booster classes. In addition to this our booster classes are year specific making them an extremely targeted form of tutoring.
5. How will you teach my child(ren)?
Children learn in various ways whether it be visual, auditory, reading / writing or kinesthetic.

Primary tutors give lots of examples whether it be using the whiteboard, discussing verbally or demonstrating practically.

Homework will vary on a week by week basis. Tutors typically give 4 sheets for each subject. However, if a child would like additional homework, the tutor can make the relevant arrangements within reason.
