English Summer School Transition Courses
We have had an influx of parents requesting tutors to help prepare students for the transition into the next year group, some parents have also requested tuition during the holidays, so we created the English summer school. Our tutors are very experienced and gain fantastic results due to their thorough and methodical approach to prepare students for SATS, GCSE, A level and the next academic year group.
Why is English So Important?
When students have a good grasp of English the language and are confident about using it, they also start to progress well within other subjects. The English Language allows individuals to negotiate, understanding what is being asked within questions and the importance of using advanced language to gain those extra marks within Geography, History, Business Studies and theatrical studies etc.
Get Children Reading
The most important activity a child can partake in is reading especially as we approach the new academic year. Reading is beneficial for their confidence, creativity, and their learning. Studies have highlighted that children who read are able to use a wider vocabulary, have stronger creativity as well as greater empathy.
Book Time With a Private Tutor
To help your child prepare for the transition to the new academic year our English summer school via a private tutor is well worth the investment, tutors are able to identify any gaps which may currently be residing in the current academic year.
Our English tutors take students from SATS through to GCSE covering SPAG, Literature, Poetry and creative writing. They will assess students, go over past papers and ensure they are ready to commence the new academic year in a positive and confident frame of mind.
