Student Thought: ‘Challenging but fun’

October 16, 2017 9:00 am

Student Thoughts is a new feature for us at Spark Ideas. At Spark, we always value what our students think of us and this seemed like a good place to let their opinions shine!

 

This week we spoke to one of our Year 9 groups to see what they think of Spark. These are a group of English and Maths students from the Oadby site. They had a lot of nice things to say!

 

What do you enjoy about learning at Spark Academy?

 

 I enjoy working with the people I get along with.

Anaya

The work is challenging but fun and you easily get on with the other people in your group.

Group work is a staple in a lot of our English lessons at Spark. It’s fantastic to hear that students are not just benefiting from this, but building friendships to enjoy working with their classmates.

 

That teachers give you extra help and are by your side to help you exceed your best. And you have more attention from teachers.

Rhea

 

It’s brilliant to hear that our efforts aren’t going to waste – our small classes really do help the students succeed!

 

Did you look at other tuition services before Spark? If so, why did you pick Spark Academy?

 

Most of the students said they hadn’t looked anywhere else – for Aman and Rhea, Spark has been their first and only tuition provider. As Dhruv says:

This is really good!

 

I also found out lots of students have come to us through recommendations:

My cousins recommended this tuition and I had a free trial lesson which I loved. I have been coming here now for 3 years.

Rhea

 

My friend recommended it.

Aman

Those students who had tried elsewhere before Spark were definitely happy to be here now:

 

[I did go to another provider] but they weren’t as good because this [is] more modern and I really enjoy it.

I didn’t learn anything at my other tuition.

Anaya

I think we’re all glad to hear you’re learning a lot more with us, Anaya!

 

Anything else to add?

 

Tuition has helped me massively and has made my grades higher, especially in Maths. Tuition has made me gain a lot of confidence.

Rhea

It was wonderful to hear all of the lovely things our Year 9 class had to say, especially as many of the students have been with us for a few years now. We hope that you continue to enjoy and learn with us!
