English and Maths KS1 & KS2 Tuitions

Our lessons are tailored to meet every child’s unique needs, aiming to bridge the gap in their knowledge. This stems from the National Curriculum requirements. We teach maths using the core fundamental concepts through the CPA approach (Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract). This strategy helps children build a foundation for their basic understanding and gradually deepen this knowledge through skills and other representations. As for English, we base the task on a book and then incorporate the grammar, punctuation and word classes in the lessons, or we teach the skill as a standalone lesson, depending on the child and their requirements. Both English and maths involve reasoning skills and exam-style questions to support children with the exposure they may face at school. The exam-style questions allow the children to apply the taught skills and knowledge independently. Not only does this teaching approach help build children’s confidence and self-esteem, but also their motivation to want to do better.


We want to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for the incredible impact you have had on her. Your dedication, passion & unwavering support as her tutorial teacher have made a world of difference in her development, particularly to her English. We understand that there is still lots of room for her to improve. However your belief in her abilities has boosted her confidence and inspired her to reach new heights. Thank you for going above and beyond to ensure that she receives the attention and support she needs. Please accept our deepest appreciation for all that you do and we feel fortunate to have you as my daughter's tutorial teacher.

Nikita taught my daughter 1-2-1 and she quickly identified her strengths, weaknesses and learning style. In each lesson she focused on these, using the best methods for my daughter who quickly grew in confidence and looked forward to each lesson. This was great tutoring and her tailored approach is highly recommended.
