Here at Carol’s Tutoring, we look at tutoring a little differently. For a start, we specialise in primary tuition. In Scotland, the Curriculum for Excellence starts from 5 years old and extends to 13 years, and so do we. We will support children in primary 1 (reception) through to secondary 2 (year 8). Though we do not only support children in Scotland, we work with children in England, UAE and beyond.
In 2021 we won the Scottish Primary Tutoring Service of the Year and Carol was also won the Women Who Achieve award.
Carol is also the author of The Winning Kid Handbook. A unique approach to help build up children’s mindsets and confidence that has been developed throughout her long career in education.
Our award-winning team of fully qualified and experienced teachers have the skills and knowledge to support your child’s learning. But for them to make real progress, it takes more than that. To make real progress, your child needs to believe in themselves. To help your child succeed to the best of their ability, to help them overcome any barriers they face to their learning, we put confidence-building and mindset at the heart of our sessions.
It was once said, if you believe you can or believe you cannot, you are probably right.
But once a child believes they can, they can fly. They can make real progress, extending beyond the subject(s) we are supporting.
A Learning Plan As Individual As Your Child
We work to their strengths and support the areas they need to develop without being restricted by set programmes that do not account for individual likes, needs and personalities.
A Fully Qualified and Experienced Teacher
Tutoring is not a regulated industry. Anyone can set themselves up as a tutor. But every member of our team is a fully qualified primary teacher with a minimum of 5 years of experience. Some of our team have more than 20 years of experience. We understanding learning and the curriculum and can support your child.
A Holistic Approach
Yes, we will support the areas of the curriculum where your child needs support. Over time the subject may change, and our experience and knowledge mean we have the skills to do adapt. More than this, we will support your child in developing a growth mindset that they can apply to any area of their learning or lives. We will help them grow in confidence. We will help them learn how to self regulate.
Our team have in-depth knowledge of a wide range of additional support needs, from dyslexia to dyscalculia, ASD to Downs Syndrome and more. Within the team, we have teachers who are members of their management teams, have worked as Additional Support for Learning teachers, and some who have even worked in ASD bases and schools for children will severe and complex needs. In addition to this, we also have experience and understanding of a wide range of intervention programmes, which we can use to support your child.
Fun and Engaging Lesson
We do not rely on published schemes, workbooks and worksheets. Experience has shown us that whilst there is a place for them, we can also engage children in fun educational activities and games to enhance their learning. We do not want tutoring to feel like a chore, we want it to be fun.
Tutoring at a Time and Place Convenient to You
Our team of tutors live throughout central Scotland and beyond but due to the wonders of technology we can support children anywhere in the world through Zoom lessons. These lessons are fun and interactive, as they would be if we were sat together. We currently work with children throughout the UK, Saudi Arabia, Germany and beyond.
