What makes a good tuition centre?

All parents find it difficult to know which tuition centre to choose. Here are the 5 Golden Rules for choosing a good tuition centre:

1. Aesthetically inviting classroom environment. When a tuition centre possesses visually pleasing surroundings, it creates positive impressions for your child. Having to study extra hours outside of school can be a chore for most children so clean, bright and well-maintained classrooms can significantly take away feelings of apprehension and dread when it comes to learning.

2. Comprehensive content and engaging way of teaching. It is always a good choice to go for a tuition centre who employs tutors that know their craft. A good coach demonstrates a deep understanding of your child’s weak subjects by pitching at standards that are relatable to their students’ level of understanding.

3. Open school-home connection. One of the main purposes of enrolling your child in a tuition centre is to keep your son or daughter abreast with their school’s curriculum. Naturally, parents should be kept up-to-date of their child’s learning progress, as well as their homework, and other curriculum-related matters.

4. Healthy socio-emotional learning environment. A tuition centre that employs tutors who have empathy and compassion towards students is a great indication that the faculty is well-run. Tutors must be more patient and encouraging for them to fully unleash their student’s potential.

5. Detailed monitoring of tutees’ progress. Good tuition centres require teachers and coaches to give regular formative assessments of their students, as well as constructive feedback.

Theresa May and the Revival of the Grammar School: What does it mean for your child?

Recently May’s government announced plans to give £50m to existing grammar schools to increase the number of places for students applying for those in demand places. But what does this mean for a parent planning and preparing their child for the 11 plus entrance exams?

The schools will continue to be as selective as before with a boost in resources if their bids for funding are accepted this September. In fact children will still need to meet the schools standard entry requirements with some schools offering the extra places to children who live out of the area. At a time when such selection criteria is vital the government explains this plan is to increase access for disadvantaged pupils and for these schools to work with local schools to improve outcomes for all pupils and give more families access to a good school place.

Studies show that children with an advantage such as extra tuition often out perform those who sit the exams without the preparation. This can give a child the edge over those others in the competition for the few places each school allocates.

My child is really bright; surely we don’t need to bother with tuition.

Tuition is not simply about learning, it is about overcoming challenges with the support of qualified teachers. It allows students to develop the confidence to realise when they don’t understand a question and learn tools to overcome this issue. Equally the subjective nature of English means often there is no wrong answer; it is more a question of making a good argument. A lesson a week for 12 weeks can help students go up a grade – if they are paying attention. In some ways tutoring is really well supervised revision with a confidence boost. No matter how bright all students can use help finessing their skill set.

How Tuition helps:

  1. Customised lessons tailored to students
  2. One to One teaching gives more time and attention
  3. A choice of tutors
  4. Increased confidence
  5. Help with homework and test practice
  6. More interesting materials and forms of study
  7. Flexible and convenient
  8. Saves time and effort

Compared to large classrooms, with numerous distractions a tuition session is more relaxed, allowing students to take in information, overcome their weaknesses and gain the edge over other students. No matter how bright a child is, the more opportunity for practice and the exposure to a variety of skills will help them to stand out from the crowd and excel.
