English Tutoring Lessons

Our consideration of English Language and English Literature makes our students fluent readers, adept writers and critical thinkers.

With exposure to various texts, we encourage our students to read beneath the words on the page, and analyse how and why the text has been written.

In building our students’ writing styles, we are preparing them for the challenge of essay-based exams in GCSE English; ensuring they are pushing their understanding of texts for top marks.

Specific & Tailored Support At Every Key Stage

Find out how we support your child by selecting their level:

Key Stage 2

Year 5-6 English Tuition

It can be worrying time for your child as they prepare for their SATs and 11+ examinations. There’s a lot to remember and mastery in grammar, spelling and vocabulary contributes ti being able to comprehend and write fluently.
Mixing in the apprehension of starting a new school and adapting to big changes means: your child may need a guiding hand to build a positive foundation in preparation for secondary school.

Key Stage 3

Years 7-8 English Tuition

Your child is coping with a new routing and deadlines! They are learning considerably more subjects compared to primary school and, as result, can feel overwhelmed. Some students experience anxiety being placed in ‘sets’ according to their ability, which can begin to affect a child’s self-belief and their confidence.
Not only does your child need support with organising their time and developing their study skills, but they also need extra guidance with comparing texts, evaluating sources of information and analysing language in preparation for their GCSEs.

GCSE

Years 9-11 English Tuition

Your child may be struggling with their time management, study plans and meeting deadlines. We understand, because there’s so much to remember! Your child will often find it difficult to recall subject knowledge and apply this to exam questions. They will often resort to cramming in their revision (which is a big no no for us)!
Your child is under a significant amount of stress and can experience anxiety in this highly pressurised environment. In addition, your child is also making some pretty big decisions about their life and need guidance and support for their future opportunities.
We will help your child become more proficient at analysing, comparing and evaluating texts and their meaning for their exams.
