Primary Student Tuition Support
We strongly believe that younger children should enjoy learning!
Our focus is to make sure your child has fun during English sessions and starts to build confidence they can take back to the classroom. With their new found confidence your child’s approach to learning will change dramatically.
We consistently encourage and praise our little learners and actively encourage them to become our ‘Star of the Week’. Ensuring that they receive all the praise they need to continue to make progress.
Secondary Student Tuition Support
We understand that while some children love using their imagination to make up stories, they may find it hard to write their ideas coherently. Others may simply need some extra help to structure essays.
Our tuition focuses on the specific areas your child finds difficult. We can help your child with a topic they have struggled to understand in school, or cover the English curriculum as a whole.

What can you expect at Smart Education?
Our approach to English tuition is based on understanding how we can effectively meet the needs of your child.
Before our students receive any tutoring, they will complete a short English assessment. We use the results of every assessment to create a unique learning plan that is specific to your child.
Your child will work on their personalised learning plan, with the same qualified teacher, during every small group tuition session. By ensuring your child always works with the same tutor, we can encourage good relationships to develop between your child and their tutor, as well as between parents and tutors.
Parental Input and Communication
Students will usually receive homework at the end of every session. For children about to sit exams, homework will be past papers. If you don’t want your child to receive any homework on top of their school work, please just let us know.
We know how important it is for you to understand your child’s progress in real time. Your child’s tutor will give you regular, informal feedback at the end of each session. Every 3 months your child will be formally assessed and you’ll receive the results by email.
You can book English lessons after school during weekdays or on the weekends.We also run revision courses during the school holidays to help students catch up before their exams.
The Welsh Curriculum
All of our tutors are qualified teachers with full enhanced DBS checks. All of our teachers stay up to date with the curriculum for Wales guidance, so you can be confident in knowing that any tutoring your child receives with us will always compliment the learning they do at school.
Help your Child Develop their English Skills
Our tutors can help your children to feel more confident about their English skills, and can teach everything from spelling and grammar, to comprehension and creative writing.
Through personalised tuition delivered by qualified and DBS checked teachers, we can not only improve your child’s subject knowledge, but also help them to manage any anxieties surrounding a lack of confidence in the classroom.
Give your child the support they need to improve their English skills. Help them to feel happier completing school work, comfortable sitting exams and proud of their progress.
