Inspiring your child to read for pleasure

Is your child thriving at school?

Secondary school, and each passing year, brings striking new challenges, and can be a tough experience for many children.  If your child didn’t grasp something earlier, they may have trouble moving forward.  Big classes, moving through each subject at a fixed pace, don’t meet every child’s needs perfectly.

In a busy secondary classroom, any gaps may not be identified, and your child may not have the confidence to ask for the help they need.

Do they love to study?

They should and they can!  We like to work on the assumption that every child can learn anything, and that every child should have the chance to start reading for pleasure.

Are they getting the support they need?

At this level, under pressure to perform, your child may shy away from your help, and also not feel brave enough to ask for help at school.

Giving your child exactly the right help with English

Our English tutors in Oxford can help them with everything from basic skills in reading, handwriting, grammar and spelling, through to more advanced literacy tools such as analysis of texts, use of language, reading and writing for different purposes, GCSE preparation, and all other curriculum requirements.

And see your child flourish

Our students and their parents are regularly delighted with the striking improvement in their studies, as well as in their confidence and their joy in learning.

With life skills as well as book learning

Along the way, we will also coach your child in a range of study skills and life skills.  We bring their studies to life by connecting them to current affairs, and help them build the rounded profile that universities are looking for.
