English tutoring

Support your child’s English skills – proficiency in reading, writing, listening and speaking are essential skills that can set your child up for success both within and beyond the classroom.

Spoken language underpins reading and writing. It’s important that children can develop and order their thoughts to explain their understanding and prepare ideas before they are put down on paper. Our English tuition introduces strategies that can be adopted for the long term, be this reading, writing, listening or speaking.

Extra support in English can help students develop their understanding and enjoyment of stories, poetry, plays and non-fiction. It can help support creative and formal writing: building a narrative, organising content and controlling sentence structure. We understand that grammar, spelling and punctuation can be particularly tricky skills to grasp and our tutors will have a range of methods by which they can support your child to develop these areas.

If your child is struggling with a particular set text or requires help in using the right words and phrases to compare-contrast texts, for example, then we can help. Whatever the challenge, our online learning will provide a fun and enjoyable experience where your child can monitor their progress as sessions evolve.

As your child gets older, their ability to present ideas via performance and public speaking will become an important life skill. Through fun techniques, and practice sessions, we can build familiarity and confidence to help your child overcome any anxiety in this area.

Our English tutors will work closely with your child to understand their needs and develop a personalised plan to address their key areas of focus. Whether that is to develop literacy, spelling, grammar, or being able to clearly comprehend and communicate ideas or participate in debates, our tutors can help your child reach their full potential.

We take pride in matching your child with an age-appropriate tutor who will make learning fun and engaging.

All of our tutoring sessions provide customised learning, tailored to each child and their needs. Your first lesson is free and, upon starting your sessions, you and your child will enjoy access to a dashboard where you can monitor, review and reinforce learning in between sessions.
