Summer Holiday English Tuition – Book Now

The summer holidays are, of course, a time for relaxation and recuperation.

However, they are also an excellent time to boost your child’s academic success and to maintain their levels of written work and reading progress, rather than allowing them to forget everything they have learned!

Booster sessions over the summer holidays, focusing on key skills such as grammar, spelling and punctuation along with analytical reading and writing to describe, imagine and persuade will ensure your child is primed and ready for the new academic year. These tuition sessions will reinforce what they have learned at school over the preceding academic year and enable them to gain some new skills as well.

Whether progressing in Key stage 3, moving up to Key stage 4 or preparing for GCSEs or A Levels in English, some extra tuition in the forthcoming school holidays will prove enormously beneficial for the academic year ahead.

To find out more or to discuss your child’s individual needs, contact me  at rosalinddavie@englishtuitioncheltenham.co.uk or on 01242 251564 / 07840622571.

 

 

Building students’ GCSE and A Level confidence at English Tuition Cheltenham

Many of the students I work with suffer from a low level of self confidence and this has a negative impact on many aspects of their lives including their academic performance, particularly at the all-important GCSE and A level stages.

Does your child lack confidence in expressing his or her ideas in the classroom or in written work? This is where English Tuition Cheltenham can help, by instilling self belief and improving students’ ability to articulate their thoughts clearly.

A patient, encouraging and friendly tuition scheme helps children to find their voice and learn to use it with confidence, not only in English but in subjects across the board, improving overall academic performance.

I am an experienced and well-qualified English tutor. I am currently writing a PhD thesis, have both a Master’s in English Literature and a First Class Honours Degree and, equally importantly, have brought up two children. I have taught English at a local further education college and am now working as a private English tutor with great success. I particularly enjoy working with students on a one-to-one basis, helping them to achieve their full potential.

This is where English Tuition Cheltenham can help. A few hours of extra tuition can really help to prepare your child, ensuring that they get maximum benefit from the mock exams and helping them to achieve higher marks in this important subject.

Mock exams give your child an opportunity to prepare for the real exams they will be sitting later in the academic year so this is a valuable opportunity to learn how to get the best marks they can.

School holiday GCSE and A Level revision sessions at English Tuition Cheltenham

Some students and parents are simply too busy to squeeze extra tuition sessions into a week already crowded with school, homework, sports events and other extra-curricular activities.

This is where English Tuition Cheltenham can help. Rather than trying to fit weekly lessons into your schedule you can book longer, more intense, revision sessions during school holidays. Imagine how much better prepared and more confident your son or daughter could feel as they return to school having had the benefit of extra tutoring during the holidays.

With both half term and the Christmas holidays coming up, your child could improve their future exam prospects by spending a few hours over the school holidays practicing exam papers and revising key texts. You can book slots of one or two hours or even half day sessions.

Why not contact me for an informal chat on 01242 251564 / 07840622571 or email me on rosalinddavie@englishtuitioncheltenham.co.uk.

 

 

 

Grammar Basics @ English Tuition Cheltenham

Have you noticed that your child struggles with the basics of English grammar?

Topics such as the use of the indefinite article are covered early on in your child’s school career and it is then assumed that they know this. However, it sometimes happens that a pupil can still be making mistakes in such basic English usage much later on, even during their secondary school education. You might expect your child to understand when to use ‘an’ rather than ‘a’ and to know why we do this. For example, why do we say ‘an umbrella’ but ‘a university’?

English teachers at your child’s school are often so busy that they do not correct your child’s minor errors, assuming that they really understand what they should do but have just made a slip of the pen. Surprisingly, children are not always familiar with simple grammatical rules, though, having missed this topic at school or forgotten it.

English Tuition Cheltenham can help prepare your child for a new school year by instilling a thorough grasp of English grammar, making all their work more accurate, fluent and better presented. This could make a real difference as your children prepare for success at Key Stage 3, GCSEs and A Levels.

At English Tuition Cheltenham, I offer a friendly, patient and professional service, so why not take a look at my website or contact me by e-mail or telephone – rosalinddavie@englishtuitioncheltenham.co.uk / 01242 251564 / 07840622571.

Pre-examination stress – English Tuition Cheltenham

The Autumn term is just starting and with it comes the anxiety about forthcoming examinations, whether those are re-takes, mocks or January GCSE and A level exams. If your child is struggling to prepare it is not too late to book some private tuition sessions to boost confidence and success.

Even just a few tuition sessions before an exam can make a real difference. Studying practice exam questions along with quick revision summaries of those vital texts will refresh and extend your child’s understanding and knowledge.

To see how English Tuition Cheltenham can help at this all-important time of year, why not get in contact for an informal chat. Don’t forget that sixth-form and university places may rest on these next few months.
