English and Mathematics are taught in preparation for SATs examinations, end of year 6, or just to boost current working-at-grades. Currently working with Year 6 in a local primary school, we have the knowledge and experience of the National Curriculum and up-to-date expertise in the SATs examinations. We aim to get all our students to not only reach any target levels set or predicted by their school, but to exceed those target levels and reach their full potential.
English and Maths at Tintagel Tutoring
At Tintagel Tutoring, we provide comprehensive coverage of all the subjects tested in the Year 6 SATs examinations. This includes reading comprehension, SPAG (Spelling, punctuation and grammar) and Maths. We take the time to ensure your child is confident in all areas of the examination while also identifying both strengths and weaknesses. We are then able to tailor the practice your child completes to cater for their individual needs. Our priority is to help your child learn, understand and apply the knowledge to accurately answer examination questions. When children have acquired the necessary knowledge, they also need to be able to perform well in examination conditions. Through the completion of routine tests, we aim to build up your child’s confidence in this area. As they approach the Year 6 SATs examinations, Mock Exams can be an excellent way to test skills and knowledge in true examination conditions.
Small Group Tutoring
In classes at Tintagel Tutoring, there are no more than 10 children in a group which provides a friendly and caring atmosphere with one-to-one attention for all students. Tuition takes place from my home in the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield where children will enter a welcoming classroom to study from. We pride ourselves on treating all children as individuals, who learn in different ways and at different paces. Such small group sizes allow us to tailor our tuition to your child’s needs and provide all the individual support they require. Places in our groups are limited and early registration is advised in order to guarantee a place for your child. Contact us to discuss a place for your child.
KS2 SATs Mock Exams at Tintagel Tutoring
Tintagel tutoring offer mock exams in the months leading up to the KS2 SATs Examinations. These mock exams aim to create conditions as close as possible to that of the real exams. The exams will take place under exam conditions and we offer mock exams in Reading, SPAG and Maths. It is not essential to sit the mock exams, but we would advise your child sit at least one to obtain experience of a formal test situation before sitting the actual exam itself.
Mock examinations provide an excellent way to practice working in exam conditions and will help your child to overcome exam day nerves. They also assist the tutoring process by providing an accurate picture of your child’s progress in each specific area of the exam while highlighting any strengths and weaknesses. Mock exams are an excellent way of helping children with timing issues on each paper and boosting their self-confidence.
Following completion of mock exams at Tintagel Tutoring, we will provide parental feedback which is detailed and specific. Your child’s marked exam papers will be available for collection one week after the exam and we will discuss your child’s results on an individual basis. Having the paper returned to your is the best feedback you can have.
