Your child will then receive a gift and an appropriate Maths book so we can get them started and nurture their enthusiasm immediately.
We give honest feedback and a full written report. Our aim is for happy, well-educated students and this can only be achieved if we are honest and work together. Your tutor will discuss your child’s current needs and listen carefully to any information you give us which will help us teach your child.
We want to work with you to help support and educate your child. We understand that you are the most important influence in your child’s life and we appreciate that your support at home is key to their success.
The cost of an assessment is £42.

How will the assessment work?
This is a friendly, informal assessment not a pass or fail exam.
Assessments last one hour – you bring your child, look around our bright and friendly teaching rooms and when you are happy, you leave your child with their tutor for forty minutes.
After chatting with the teacher, your child will be asked to write about themselves. They will be given a reading age test and be assessed in Maths.
After forty minutes, you return to a very happy and comfortable child. You then receive a fully written report and spend twenty minutes with your tutor, who will explain the report and how to move forward. You will be offered a variety of appropriate times and days, then offered a class that suits you. During this time your child will show you how well they have done and then work on a given task.
