Howard - Central Portsmouth - School English

Methodology

- Classes

We carry out a free assessment for every student. After that we can see exactly what each child can and cannot do. We design an individual programme for each child to help them in their weak areas. Each week we see where they are successful and where they need more help. Usually the work will get a little harder each time to make sure we are challenging the students, but also finding new areas and topics to work on.

Students usually attend the centre once a week for an 80 minute session when they follow their individual programmes. They are given one-to-one tuition in groups of 5 or less. Progress is carefully monitored and regular re-assessment is part of the programme. Each child learns at their own pace and we aim to provide a fun, confidence building environment to enable them to make real progress and achieve their full potential.

We have become the leading after-school tuition provider in the Portsmouth and Southsea area. Some students have loved it so much they have been with us for the whole time we have been open!

Here are some of the comments that our parents and students have made

We graduated a student recently and his parents have since written to us to say:

'Alfie has benefitted greatly from tuition, and his school have remarked on his improved cofidence and attitude in class. Please pass on our thanks to Tom who has been a fantastic teacher for him. It is a sign of the success of the tuition that Alfie says he will miss it!'

Here are some other comments made by parents and students recently:

" He made exponential progress in 2 months and gained hugely in confidence" Monique, parent.

" My daughter had been 3b in Maths for 2 years running. Howard noticed that she was bright but that it (Maths) had not been explained properly to her. He was able to teach her in the way she needed so she could learn. Since attending she has gone to Level 5c already!" Mrs Neagle, parent.

"It is fun to learn here. You get to go on the computers, write in your books, go on games, learn your times tables, you can even learn to do joined up writing. If you get stuck Linda or Howard are there to help you." Rubie student.

"Its just six months now and the transformation has been incredible. He reads and writes quite well and is much more confident about school and learning." Mike, parent.

"Thank you for your help and support, Katie B has passed her entrance to the High School'" Mrs B, parent.

'"Just to say a HUGE thank you for all your help and encouragement this year. It's all very much appreciated. With love, Gill xx ".
