We believe Maths and English are different to other subjects, as they are what we call Building Block subjects where each level has to be thoroughly understood before you can add more blocks on the next level. Click HERE to watch our short video that explains why this is so important to building your children’s confidence and ensuring success. Our courses are designed to support UK school-aged children and are aligned to the various UK Curricula. An Estia Tuition student is a confident student, because we support them no matter whether they are behind, where they should be, or, ahead. Our system comprises a number of key components, being:
Whilst our Maths programme covers all aspects of the Curriculum from ages 5-16yrs, our English programme more specifically helps with English Grammar, Comprehension & Composition and Reading.
The English programme covers the following key components of written English:
Reading comprehension (literal), phonics, spelling, vocabulary development, punctuation, parts of speech, sentence construction, word usage, common errors, figurative language and writing skills. Students will develop their literal reading comprehension skills by reading, listening to, and interacting with a variety of text types.
Students learn various techniques to improve their spelling, from spelling lists to distinguishing short and long vowel sounds, prefixes and plurals.
Students increase and use new words and learn how to identify and use figurative language.
This can make the world of difference to the meaning of a sentence or passage.
Students learn to identify and use various parts of speech from nouns, verbs and adjectives to more complex forms. They will understand how to apply the correct use of grammatical terms through spoken and written words.
Students will improve their writing skills by being able to identify and use phrases and understand how sentence structures can be applied to write different types of texts.
Our expert Course Tutors are available to meet with you and your children at your convenience to fully explain the benefits of our system & support.
