Frequently asked questions
What ages do you teach?
We teach children aged 5 – 14.
Do I need to stay at Unit 12 while my child is having his/her lesson?
There is a café at Unit 12 where you can grab a cup of tea or coffee and wait but you do not need to stay. Most of our parents drop their children off and come back to collect them after their lesson.
Is there parking at Unit 12?
Yes. However, parking is limited and sometimes it can be tricky to find a spot during busy times.
What do you teach?
We teach a variety of subjects. Our main focus tends to be English and maths but we also teach history, geography and science. Our lessons are personalised, and we link learning to the interests of your child.
Do you run small group lessons?
Yes, we do. Our small groups are 1:4. It is worth noting that we only group children who will support and enhance each other’s learning.
Do you follow the National Curriculum?
We take our lead from the learning journey each child is currently following. We have extensive knowledge and experience of teaching the National Curriculum. However, some parents who have chosen an alternative path for their children can request specific areas, projects and concepts that they feel their child would benefit from.
My child has dyslexia and or other learning needs, do you have the experience to support them?
Both Jo and Julia have extensive experience of working with children with dyslexia and a variety of other learning needs. We use a wide range of different approaches, teaching styles and resources which we have found are very effective. We understand that children learn in very different ways and we work incredibly hard to discover the best way to support each individual child.
Are you still teaching face to face during Covid – 19?
Yes, we are.
Do you offer online lessons?
Yes we do for those of our current pupils who are self-isolating
Can I book a block of lessons?

Are you happy to talk / communicate with my child’s teacher about their learning?
Yes, absolutely. We are more than happy to talk with your child’s teacher if you would like us to. We think the best way to support children with their learning is to have open lines of communication with teachers at school. We are happy for you to pass our contact details on to your child’s teacher.
