Parent Q&A: Tailored learning for each child to boost their confidence

“As an occupational therapist, my belief is that a strong foundation in English and maths in the young years is really important as part of children’s development. We decided to commit to tutoring and not look back in terms of costs to get it right. 

“What made the assessment so effective, was somebody sitting down with my daughter and giving one-on-one attention which I really liked. They were a trained teacher and referred to how many specific words she knew. It was very in-depth and provided me with an idea of her current level and how we would progress. Once she got rolling, I felt she had more confidence. So, that was the big tell-tale sign.”

We spoke to a parent of four, Amelia, about her initial experiences with the NumberWorks’nWords teaching team, what she enjoys most about the programme and her future plans for her children’s education.

Read the Q&A to discover how with a focus on confidence, each child has embraced their tutoring experience and is on a path to making exciting progress at school.
