Key Stage 1

Children learning in kindergarden

How can we help you?

 

Our specialised home and online tutors can support your child with KS1. The key stage 1 years comprise of year 1 to year 2 of primary school. These are otherwise called the infant years of primary schooling. Children are aged 6-7 years.

Before the commencement of your lessons, our tutors offer you  a free trial session where you have an opportunity to decide if you want to carry on taking lessons with a particular tutor. In addition after every lesson, your child will receive homework from their tutor.

Our Client Care Manager Rasheeda is there to guide and support you in finding a tutor which matches your needs.

  1. Before the commencement of lessons, Rasheeda, our Client Care Manager carefully selects a tutor for you after discussion on your needs and subjects.

  2. One of our experienced tutors would then carry out a taster lesson with you, just to ensure you feel 100%  comfortable with his/ her teaching styles and methods, before you begin to pay for regular lessons!

  3. Once you feel we have found the tutor that matches your exact needs, weekly lessons would be carried out with your tutor. Your tutor would provide feedback and homework after every session.

Here are some tutors that can support your child!
