English


We have a way with words...

Naadhirah has been fantastic and seems to really be enjoying herself. The way she supports but still encourages independence is wonderful.
 

KS4 English Language

We see how peer influence helps students open up to assistance in groups and on a one-to-one basis. Our tutors work with pupils to develop their reading and annotation technique, their ability to write for different audiences and produce creative texts by giving the tools context. This enables your students to express themselves verbally and in the written word to maximum effect.

We support students at GCSE by practicing the different question techniques both in Language and Literature papers.

 

For the love of literacy

We know how important it is to build strong foundations in Literacy as it is key to a child’s ability with words and indeed their love for language. It is also a vital cross-curricular skill, forming the basis for communication in all subjects.

Teachers tell us that all too often pupils have great ideas – they know exactly what they want to say but struggle to express themselves on paper. Our tutors help them structure the process so they to write with confidence and grammatical correctness – skills valued by many employers – in which competency can dramatically improve the life chances of young people.

We offer support in all areas, most commonly:

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Comprehension
  • Grammar
  • Use of interesting vocabulary
  • Listening to reading
  • Creative writing
  • Writing for an audience
  • Persuasive writing

Our tutors can significantly help support pupils for whom English is not their first language.

A combination of one-to-one work and in-lesson support proves extremely beneficial to pupils and subject teachers appreciate having a third party provide a consistent link to the pupil while they learn the subtleties of each subject in a new language.
