English

If you have students who are in need of extra support with English, the TLC LIVE online tutoring might be the answer.

Our teachers are fully qualified and have been trained to be great online tutors. Online tutoring is a proven, flexible and affordable way to improve grades and boost confidence.

We start with a comprehensive assessment that identifies where the student needs help. We use the results of this assessment to put together a personal learning plan and our fully qualified tutors provide the individual attention and targeted help needed. Students move through the programme at their own pace without the pressure of keeping up with the class, nor the frustration of being held back by less able classmates.

We offer English tuition at all levels from KS1 up to GCSE and can help with all aspects of English including:

reading

Reading

The general aim of most parents is to encourage students to enjoy reading by themselves, since once you spark an interest in reading and they read for pleasure the battle is half won. More specific objectives may include work on

  • Phonics
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension skills

writting

Writing

We teach students a range of writing skills depending on their needs with specific objectives including

  • Spelling and punctuation
  • Writing structure and style
  • Sentence construction

The students will be given regular assessments to measure progress and to identify any new skill gaps and the programme will be adapted to reflect the results of your ongoing assessments.

Our English tutors share the belief that dedicated, sensitive and intelligent teaching is particularly important. English differs from the curriculum’s two other principle subjects, maths and science, in that there is often not a definitive ‘right or wrong’ answer. There are some areas of the topic, such as structure and style, which can be open to interpretation and rely on gaining a fundamental understanding of the basics of reading and writing.

Fortunately, with TLC, help is at hand. They are experts at teaching pupils everything they need to know about English in order for them to pass their exams and, more importantly, to leave with a clear understanding of things like comprehension and sentence construction after they have left school.
