I am concerned about lessons being on Zoom, tell me more
We can tell you it works, but here is what Claire had to say about transitioning from face to face to online:
Initially prior to covid the tuition was 1-1 in person and then during and post covid the tuition moved online. I was a little apprehensive about it being online, but my worries soon disappeared as Carol was just as amazing and the tuition worked just as good, in fact even better. I can honestly say the support my son has had from Carol has been outstanding.

How long does a session last?
A session is 55 minutes with a 5 minute brief discussion at the end to update you. If you require a longer conversation please let us know as we will likely have a lesson booked after yours. The length of lessons can vary for home schooled children during the day.
How much is a lesson?
Our fees are competitive and representative of our experience and qualifications. They are currently start at £55per hour and go up from there depending on your tutors experience.
How many lessons will be required?
Each and every child is different and so is the length of time they require tutoring. Some may only need a short time to boost confidence, others may require longer.
Can I sit in on Lessons?
If the lesson is 1 to 1 you are more than welcome to sit in. However, we find children often focus more without their adult there.
My child has additional support needs, can you tutor them?
Absolutely yes! We have tutors who have worked in autism provision, special education and mainstream education. We also have tutors who are dyslexia trained. We am confident we can meet your child’s needs in a way that suits them.
Do you set homework?
Yes and no. The only regular homework we set is for spelling. Children often have a range of commitments in addition to their school homework. Furthermore, most homework for primary school age has been shown to have a detrimental impact upon families and no real improvement to learning. The exception to this is reading for enjoyment. We urge every parent to read with their child.
What do I need to provide?
It is helpful if you provide your child with a jotter and pencil.
How long is your waiting list?
Times can vary depending on your location, availability and the age and stage of your child. We do try and get to everyone as quickly as possible but it is impossible to give a definite answer to this questions.
If we have not answered your question please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss.
