Classes take place in a well-resourced classroom, with computers and an interactive whiteboard. I truly believe that if a child comes to tuition after school or on a Saturday it has to be something they want to do, which means they have to enjoy it and want to come back. I personally plan and deliver interesting and exciting lessons and homework, individualised for each child . Lessons often involve group work and team challenges as children learn from each other, this helps deepen learning.
Children leave my lessons feeling positive and rewarded.
The average 9-10 year old has an attention span of 15 minutes, I use a mix of individual and group based learning and a wide range of resources to keep children engaged and happy.
The course takes place in an IT suite and computers will be used to support revision and assessment in a range of fun and exciting ways.
Helpful bank of computer resources provided include:
Online bank of resources for use at home, also accessible via tablets and mobiles
Access to help tools at home if stuck
Games based learning and formative assessment tools*
Online practice questions
Team play challenges to test and enhance understanding of new concepts
Reports will be provided at the end of each term (roughly every 6 weeks). This will be supplemented with a pupil review meeting.
*A powerful new approach now being adapted by educators as a way of helping information stay in the long term memory, allowing learning to move forward (founded in neuroscience research).
