11+ winter workshops: keep your child’s mind active this holiday season!

Christmas is a wonderful time of year, full of the joys of celebration and feasting surrounded by beautiful decorations. Often academic work is avoided for the array of Christmas activities on offer or just to indulge in a fun filled break. However, if students disengage from learning activities, there are drops in their performance and a slowing of educational progress.

The summer slump is well known in Britain to affect a student’s performance at school after they go back from the long six week holiday. A gap in learning often affects those children whose parents work, are busy looking after other siblings or a variety of other reasons which prevent them from keeping their child’s mind active with learning activities.

We at the Learning Hub pride ourselves on being able to keep young minds prepared for those vital exams the 11+ that are just round the corner for many children. Our preparation programme starts from Year 4 and goes all the way up to Year 6 when students sit the exams at the grammar or independent school of their choice. Experts say that the more time a child has spent preparing, learning new skills and practising them the better the do in the actual exam. You cannot begin this preparation early enough and with our fun setting here at the Hub our students learn while enjoying their time here.

Dates available: Thursday 27th & Friday 28th December

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.

What the Learning Hub offers:

1. We’ve invested in our classrooms ensuring they provide an optimal atmosphere for learning.

2. We keep class sizes small, ensuring we give your child the individual attention and support they deserve in order to help them excel academically.

3. Personalised meetings with parents to discuss student progress is only part of the way we partner with parents to ensure our students receive all the help they need.

4. Our dedicated, qualified teachers work on boosting a child’s confidence in the areas they are struggling.

5. We have regular tests in class to ensure students are picking up on the new concepts and skills we teach.
