Frequently Asked Questions in choosing the right tuition for you:
(Be sure to check out our media, testimonials & appraisal links
Is there a minimum contract/length of term?
hard to predict how long it would take to address your child's
problems, as all children tend to learn at different speeds. However, we
don't like contracts that tie you in, and we're sure that you
don't either. So all we ask is that you give us a month's notice
for any reason, in fairness to our planning and staffing
What's the ratio of children to tutors?
It's a fact that children learn and work best in the presence of
others, and our
dedicated centre also provides safety and peace of mind for
you. Common sense tells you however that ratios such as 5:1, 6:1
or higher will inevitably mean less effective
tutoring per child, no matter what others say! Which is why we prefer a far more
focused and better ratio of 2:1 or 3:1, with each student having
their own individualised learning and development
programme created. This guarantees that
each child receives far more personalised and individual 1:1 tuition
and coaching within our style of sessions
than other tuition providers can offer! You just can't beat
plenty of face-to-face quality tuition in a specialised centre
like ours! :-)
How much do you charge?
Great question! Remember that qualified teachers worth their
salt are not cheap. But they should not be extortionate either!
Our fees are currently lower than £21 per hour,
right up to GCSE level*! The appraisal done with your child will
help us to determine the actual level of fees, but we guarantee
they won't be higher than £21 p.h.! Why would you want to pay more?
Why Choose Us?
You mean, we haven't already convinced you
yet? We have properly qualified teachers, police-checked too. We
like to have a flexible approach to our sessions, with a variety
of teaching and learning tasks to motivate students and get the
best out of them. Many children are referred to us by current
ones (over 80% of enrolments are from
referrals!), and that tells you a lot. Just ask for a free sample session, even if you're
already getting tutored elsewhere, and judge for
Science might cost just a little bit more.
