The First Steps

Once your child has undergone our informal assessment process and we have gotten to know all of you, we can begin to discuss the future of your child and how their English tuition would take place at our centre.  It’s essential that we have an in-depth and detailed discussion so that we can know what level of reading and comprehension ability that we are working to and are fully in tune with your expectations and aspirations for your child.

English tuition will take place by making use of a range of learning resources; computers, workbooks, worksheets and audio.  We make a deliberate effort to keep the session’s varied and interesting thus stimulating interaction and engagement.  The pace will depend on your child and what suits them; we don’t force or push as experience has taught us that self-confidence needs to be instilled and built at the same time as the English tuition is taking place, whether they are reading, writing or listening to their teacher and interacting.
