  • English Tuition

  • Our English lessons follow the new National Curriculum English Programme of Study. All our teaching material is up-to-date and relevant to what is being taught in school. We tutor students of all abilities, over Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. We will help your child improve written and verbal skills, as well as increasing confidence.

    Our lessons cover grammar, comprehension and writing (both creative writing and non-fiction). We can help children improve their school work and focus on any areas where they may be struggling. Applying a range of teaching methods, we aim to make lessons fun and stimulating.

    Using comprehension material from a wide variety of sources, we will teach children how to cope with basic retrieval questions and then inference, deduction and reasoning. They will learn how to answer complex questions, such as those discussing character and authors’ techniques. We will teach them how to comment on the effectiveness of particular words and phrases.

    We encourage children to read as widely as possible; this assists them with comprehension and creative writing. We will suggest activities to parents that they can do with their child to ensure reading is as productive as possible.

    As with comprehension, we adopt a variety of methods to teach writing. We will ensure your child is competent with techniques, such as using varied openers, connectives and figurative language. We will guide them through the process of descriptive writing and story writing. They will learn write effective openings, develop character, settings. and create suspense. We will also teach  the skills required for effective non-fiction writing.

    Prices and terms - one student will cost £30.00 per hour at tutor’s home. Two or more students are an additional £10 each per hour. Lessons can be arranged in your own home and a small charge will be made to cover travel costs. Payment can be either by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
