Step Up Tuition - private tuition in English & MathsWe give the basic skills of maths our highest priority. These are tables, arithmetic and problem solving. Tables and arithmetic are the fundamental tools of maths and problem solving is necessary as most questions are asked in a wordy way and the children have to work out the maths required.

We have teachers experienced in teaching all levels of maths from early mental maths and basic sums through entrance exam maths, to Grade 9 GCSE topics and iGCSE.

Maths is taught through understanding and we break down the 'method' into pieces that help your child make the link from what they already know to what they need to understand. This gives a permanent and thorough grasp of the topic and ensures that they have a firm foundation to build upon.

Step Up Tuition - private tuition in English & MathsWe use the most highly regarded reading programme available which is proven to help children improve their reading skills rapidly.

The programme improves children's word attack skills and their general phonic awareness. Parents should note that because sounds and words are best practised daily, they are required to work with their children for about 10 minutes each day.

Step Up Tuition - private tuition in English & MathsThe spelling materials we use are both written and computer based, covering all levels.
We also have phonics programs to help build a better understanding of sounds and to help improve word attack skills. Spelling is becoming more of a priority and so it is often useful to do some spelling work with students working on other areas of English.
