Our Approach

Maths tuition usually takes place at the comfort of your home as your child will feel comfortable in their own home. However, we could arrange an alternative venue if that works better for the parent.

Our maths tutors do initial assessment to find out what the student strengths and weaknesses are and adopt a strategy to work with the students.
For the lessonas themselves, our tutors prefer to create practice questions usually from past questions or from practice papers and go over those with the student. These would normally include the questions on topics the student said they struggled with. Alternatively, if they want to improve in a more general manner or are unsure where they struggle, then the tutors put questions from a mixture of topics and mixture of question types ; reasoning questions where maths fluency skills are required or some with problem solving questions which require students to use their maths skills sometimes from other topics to solve the problems.

At the end of every maths tuition session, students are allocated a piece of homework to consolidate their learning. Tutors then review this at the beginning of the next lesson and address any issues that arises as a result.

''Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think'' - Albert Einstein. Here at Achievers, we promote independent thinking and learning with an emphasis on supporting students to think creatively and use their skills to solve problems.

Science Tuition

This is what one of our clients said about one of our Science tutors:

''My daughter was struggling with Chemistry since she started her A Level. I acquired the services of two different tutors from another tutoring provider and on both occasions, my daughter didn't like their approach and hence didn't enjoyed the tuition. I then approached Achievers Tutoring who allocated a new Chemistry Tutor to my daughter. When they had their first lesson, I could see straight away that a 'light bulb moment 'has occurred. My daughter was able to connect with Matthew (the tutor) from day one. Since then, my daughter's confidence and performance in Chemistry has jumped through the roof. This tutor understands how to motivate students to get the best out of them. I would highly recommend Matthew and Achievers Tutoring to any parents who wants their children to achieve their full potential''

All our tutors are qualified with either QTS or a minimum honours degree in taught subjects, DBS cleared and are fully vetted.

Some of our tutors are examiners so they know the assessment process well and can point students in the right direction. At Achievers, our tutors can help students who needs support in any of the sciences be it Chemistry, Physics and Biology whether at GCSE Level or A Level. Tutors who work for us are passionate about Science and would develop students' knowledge in Science in such a way that they will fall in love with the subject.

Our Approach

The first thing that our tutors find useful before the very first lesson is to ask if the student struggles with specific topics or just wants to improve their knowledge and confidence in the subject on a more general basis. Because sometimes it could be specific areas that the student finds particularly hard, like for example questions that require the use of maths, or it could be that they are unsure of some basic concept which in turn is causing the understanding of many other areas to suffer as well.

For the lessons themselves, our tutors prefer to create practice questions and go over those with the student. These would normally include the questions on topics the student said they struggled with. Alternatively, if they want to improve in a more general manner or are unsure where they struggle, then the tutors put questions from a mixture of topics and mixture of question types ; questions where maths skills are required, some with longer written answers and some that check basic understanding such as filling the blanks in a table or a diagram or simple true or false questions.

In lessons, we go through the questions together, one by one. Our tutors find that this creates a better engagement. It allows the tutor and the student to discuss the question and see their knowledge of the topic in the question. If they are unsure, tutor will try to give them hints and steer them towards the answer to see if they can reach it on their own. If that doesn't work, then tutors will intervene to explain the answer to them and note it down as something to reassess again in future lessons. Repetition can often help to get information to stick with the student.

11+ Tuition

This is what one of our clients said about one of our 11+ tutors:

''My son had only 14 hours of 11+ lessons with Dennis and lo and behold, my son passed. My son has received an offer from The Crypt School, Gloucester. I cannot thank Dennis enough for such an amazing work done. This tutor knows exactly how to get the best out of his students no matter the starting point. I will therefore recommend Achievers Tutoring to anyone who wants their children to achieve their full potential'' [Emma, Gloucester]

If your child has the potential to benefit from a grammar school education, then it is important to ensure they are fully prepared for the 11+ exams.

Generally, we advise parents to start planning for tutoring at the beginning of the autumn term (September) of year 5, especially as the 11+ exams now happen early in September of year 6. This allows plenty of time to prepare, to secure knowledge and skills as well as perfect exam techniques.

Gloucestershire has some of the highest achieving Grammar schools throughout the country. In Gloucestershire county, we are in a privilege position such that we are blessed with seven excellent grammar schools. The list of the grammar schools in the county are as follows:

  • Pate's Grammar School, Cheltenham (11-18 mixed)
  • The Crypt School, Gloucester (Years 7- 8, mixed, Years 9-Year 11 boys, 6th Form mixed), New intake would be mixed.
  • Sir Thomas Rich's School (11-16 boys, mixed 6th Form)
  • Denmark Road High School; formerly High School for Girls, Gloucester (11-16 girls, mixed 6th Form)
  • Ribston Hall High School, Gloucester (11-16 girls, mixed 6th Form)
  • Marling School, Stroud (11-18 boys)
  • Stroud High School, Stroud (11-18 girls)

Parents need to contact their preferred grammar school direct to find out about how to apply for their child to sit the 11+ tests. Parents can select more than one grammar school and are encouraged to do so to offer them choices. Parents need to fill in the Common Application Form and a test registration form available from the school. Failure to complete the Local Authority's form means the child cannot be offered a place, even if they achieve a qualifying score.

It possible for parents applying to Pate's school to sit the test at another local grammar school. Parent must notify the school they are applying to of their preference in such a case.

All the grammar schools are non-fee paying and entry is based on eleven plus (11+) admission test results. Admission to Year 7 of any of the grammar schools is very competitive and the entrance exams are held in September at each school for entry of the following year. Thus, children take the 11+ test at beginning (September) of Year 6. In Gloucestershire, the 11+ admission test involves 2 CEM papers which are set by The Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM), Durham University. There are two multiple choice tests, 45-50 minutes each which is split up into smaller timed sections. Each paper will test:

  • Verbal Ability (tests vocabulary, comprehension, verbal reasoning)
  • Non-Verbal Ability (tests the ability to see how objects relate to each other)
  • Numerical Ability (tests the ability to solve mathematical problems)

The Grammar school entry process in Gloucestershire is very competitive, as there is no catchment area, hence parents can apply from outside the county for their children. For instance, parents from Swindon who wants their children to be educated in one of the grammar schools in the Gloucestershire county can apply. Therefore, children must be prepared in order to succeed in the test.

Every child takes the test on the same date in September at the venue of their first choice and the marks get sent to all the schools that the child has applied for where they get standardised. Each school standardises in their own way by adjusting the test results to provide their own score.
The results of the test are made available usually in the mid to end of October before the selection of secondary school deadline so that they can be used to aid the choice of options.

Our Approach

We begin tutoring by getting to know your child well and work out a strategy which suit their learning. At Achievers our aim is to nurtured students and get the best out of them irrespective of their starting point. We do this by assessing the child and identify their strengths and weakness and develop a strategy to help them improve and become a better version of themselves. Our tutors are very good at motivating students and makes lessons fun and enjoyable. As our tutors are expert at what they do, we will build the necessary foundation upon which your child will thrive. Tutoring sessions will focus on all the different aspects of the 11+ test which pupils would be examined on. These are done in small chucks in order to make them accessible to pupils.

If solving mathematical problems questions is their weakness, tutors then would have more sessions to bring them up to speed. Once all techniques are fully covered, we then move unto strengthening the child's ability to answer questions as quickly as possible as well as working accurately. Furthermore, we focus on assessment tests (mocks) and work with the child on the best way to answer those questions to maximise their potential.

At the end of each tutoring session, your child will be given a homework to consolidate their learning and this is reviewed in the next lesson to measure progress. Parents are kept in the loop throughout the tutoring sessions and constructive feedback about progress is offered. Children are encouraged to read widely as this will improve their vocabulary. Our tutors also recommend resources such as books which can support your child to succeed. For instance, a link below is a flashcard which parents could buy to help their children improve their vocabulary.
