How we Assess your Child

The initial educational assessment is a very important step in determining your child’s current working levels and will highlight areas of weakness or gaps that have formed in learning. The initial assessment fee is £28 which is taken off the first lesson fee. The results enable us to create an individual learning programme for your child and helps us to set up lesson plans.  Children attend for 80 minute sessions and are given a little homework each week to complete at home.  We encourage the students to attempt homework without parental help as this also helps us identify strengths and weaknesses. Contact us to arrange for your free initial assessment.

GCSE

GCSE Maths

In today’s world it is necessary for most occupations and further education courses to gain at least a “C” grade at GCSE Maths. At Chorlton Tuition Centre we aim to pinpoint a student’s areas of weakness and bring them to a level that enables success at the test.
For those students who are doing either foundation or the higher tier, a thorough grasp of topics covered in the curriculum is required to achieve their best grade and a knowledge of how these topics relate to each other.

Because we work to the individual needs of the students, we can establish why a student fails to grasp a topic and correct any mistakes to ensure the student now has all the background needed to understand.

Our combination of targeted reinforcement of mathematical facts and past paper practice will ensure your child is ready for the test.

GCSE English

Understanding the content of written text and being able to extract information or data from it is a very important skill. Achieving a good result in GCSE English can be surprisingly difficult. Unlike other subjects, there are few facts. Rather, GCSE English is almost entirely focussed on acquiring skills – principally reading and writing.

At Chorlton Tuition Centre we give students the confidence to write an essay with fluency and structure, developing their comments and observations appropriately for an examiner.

We concentrate on improving comprehension, spelling, grammar and essay writing skills to produce a well rounded student, ready for the exams.

As the students approach their exams they are able to work through past papers under exam conditions, which are marked with the examination board’s criteria in mind.
