My name is Helen Boyle and I am the founder of HB Tutoring…
I have ran HB Tutoring since I started my tuition mission founding the business in 2013. Prior to this I worked in both primary schools and high schools in both the independent sector and academies. I live in the North East of England and regularly find myself traveling across the UK including often visiting London, Birmingham and Edinburgh to grow and nurture our tutor network.
My Passion for children and their education came about when I regularly observed children within the classroom setting finding the pace of work too fast for them, or they may lack confidence to ask if they don’t understand something in class. When working with these children on a 1-1 basis it became apparent that with the correct approach, and a touch more care and explanation to the problem area these children would thrive, their eyes would literally lights up, they would ask questions and the pride within themselves swelled, it was always such a remarkable transformation and it would often bring a tear to the eyes of anyone who witnessed it.
Many parents would ask me to tutor their children outside of school and this is where HB Tutoring began to grow from. As a mother myself of 2 boys, I can fully empathise with parents when our children don’t want to attend school and cling to our legs as they are taken into school. I think it’s the most heart wrenching aspect of bringing up children. Once children start to succeed at school all of this changes.
Children love to learn new things and their desire to investigate and ask questions is enthralling. This is why at HB Tutoring we like to send certificates to students through the post to celebrate their achievements as well as practical resources for them to investigate. Children learn twice as fast if they are able to play and investigate new problems without time restraints. This is why we like to supply resources for families to keep to help younger children explore, discover and learn.
My job within HB Tutoring is to liaise with each parent right from the first enquiry. I help identify both you and your child’s needs, worries, concerns and/or goals you both are striving to achieve… My support team assist me in speaking with tutors and ensure we match you with the correct tutor as it is paramount, we get this right. A child will learn best of all if they are with a tutor they can relate to and can whom can empathise with them.
I like to ensure I’m available literally all day every day for parents to pick up the phone or send a quick message or email. This always ensures you receive a private, personal and bespoke service which suits your family life. No two children are the same and therefore each tuition plan has to be tailored to individual children to ensure they grow in both confidence and ability.
My passion has always been with child welfare and education, with my career starting with working young children, progressing to primary and then secondary schools, working in both the independent sector and then most recently within the Academy schools.
Prior to having children myself I was always overwhelmed by the support from parents to their children and the difference it made when we all worked together for the child – occasionally this was in the form of tough love, but mostly it was offering opportunities, installing self-belief within student and giving them the upmost level of respect.
Upon having two children myself, my eldest flying through the education system and fully lapping it up, and my youngest finding it challenging, and encountering many hurdles really gets to you as a parent, and from a teacher point of view I acknowledge resources and time are limited.
This is when HB Tutoring was founded. I created HB Tutoring through my own passion for children and their learning. I want to show children and adults they can succeed, we don’t all learn at the same pace, we will get things wrong along our learning journey, but use this to make you stronger and more successful and for students to know we are here for them.
We support younger students with their education by sending certificates and resources through the post to aid their learning, and older students receive exam help and resources to aid their learning. Students can also gain access to our learning platform which is a fantastic resource for maths and English.
I do thoroughly love working with parents and children and it’s wonderful to hear and observe parents having the same passion as I do – however one of the most heart-breaking aspects is working with children in care and hearing their stories, just looking into their eyes and seeing their pain and expectations that they will fail and can’t achieve is soul destroying. It can be a challenge for these youngsters to make friends, and believe in themselves, all you want to do is to give them a big squeeze hug as they find life a challenge and expect disappointment. I have been lucky enough to have the support from two other businessmen to create a foundation to offer these children activities to believe in themselves, to learn to negotiate and respect each other’s point of views and most of all to have self-respect and to know they are important and are able to achieve..
May I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to read my journey to help children achieve and I look forwards to speaking with you soon
