Can you assess my child and tell me what level he/she is working on?

Prior to any long term arrangement for tuition, I will always assess a child to see where they are with their learning. Grades and Levels will be given to the child and a thorough feedback session will be held for the parents/carers free of charge.

How often will you give feedback for my child?

Feedback is given regularly. I keep in touch with all parents/carers via Email and telephone. I will also write reports regularly for the child.

Why is an assessment necessary?

An assessment will allow me to create a unique lesson plan which will cater to the needs of the individual student; a plan that will build confidence in their weaker topics and fortify their stronger ones.

How can my child prepare for the first and subsequent lessons?

Please have your child`s reports and school books handy. It will give me a good idea of how well your child is doing in school.

Do I need to pay for the first meeting with you?

No, you will not be charged for the meeting.

When can I book myself in for a meeting to discuss tuition for my child?

You will need to contact me and arrange a suitable time and date for the meeting. If under any circumstances you arrange a meeting and cannot attend, I would kindly ask you to let me know in advance.

How long is each tuition session?

Each tuition session is normally one hour. If your child needs tuition for more than one hour please specify this when you call to book them in. Thank You
