We offer a FREE assessment for all primary pupils. Our students work on an individualised learning programme.
We work by:
– reinforcing material covered in school
– providing a stimulating and interesting learning environment for children, both online and at the centre
– using IT to engage students
– setting achievable goals and giving weekly feedback to parents
– setting homework to reinforce the learning from our tuition sessions.
We believe that every child should reach their full potential. Each student has a tailor-made programme to meet their specific needs, whether they are struggling in class, have special needs or are gifted in Maths or English and need further enrichment.
Tutoring Central has been providing educational assistance to students since 1996.
One primary goal is to help students write more effectively. Writing well consists of knowing the rules and conventions, but also knowing the structure and flow required which varies for different kinds of writing.
Students gain in every academic area when they are able to express themselves in written form. Building confidence is essential for students to excel when learning, so this is a big goal at Tutoring Central.
