How do I know if my child needs tuition?

Tuition is something that almost everyone benefits from, but it is usually really deemed as ‘needed’ when there is an end goal in mind. The first is that they have fallen behind in school and they need to catch up. This can happen for any number of reasons. The second is that they are meeting expectations or are ahead and exceeding expectations and want to get ahead or stay ahead. The third is that they are preparing for an exam such as the 7 plus, 11 plus, SATs or GCSEs.

Why should I choose you?

Redbridge Tuition has been going since 2007 and in that time we have worked with thousands of children with a vast variety of needs and reasons for coming to us. We are very experienced in tuition. Our tutors are carefully selected and are subject specialists. We have a passion for changing children’s learning trajectories.

What subjects do you offer?

We offer maths, English, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning, 7+ and 11+ for primary school students as well as maths, English, biology, chemistry and physics for secondary school and GCSE students. We also provide some A-Level sessions.

How long is each Session?

Each session is one hour per subject per week, with the option to double up on particular subjects if you so wish.

What age groups do you cover?

We offer classes for children aged 5 up to age 16, so year 1 to year 11 which is GCSE level.

When are your sessions available?

Our sessions run after school, Monday through Thursday as well as all day Saturday.

Are you open during the school holidays?

We have planned closures for 4 weeks of the year; two during Christmas and new year, one at Easter and one at the end of the academic year at the end of August/beginning of September. Secondary school classes do not run during August.

How is the Cost Calculated?

Our pricing is based on 48 weeks of the year as we are closed for 4 of them. These 48 weeks are then averaged out evenly across the twelve months of the year. The pricing is done on a monthly basis so whether there are 3, 4 or 5 sessions in the month, the price remains the same every month.

What payments do you accept?

Payments for our sessions are done via direct debit. We do also accept bank transfers, cash or card in store as well as childcare vouchers.

How is feedback given?

Verbal feedback is given at the end of every session when you pick up your child. If you would like slightly longer, please book a 15-minute meeting through our website. Click here to book your 15-minute meeting.

Do you do 11 plus?

Yes, our company started by specialising in the 11+ and we grew from there so we have many, many years of experience preparing children for the 11+. We write our own 11 plus material and each class is taught, meaning it is not just test papers.

How many children are in each group?

We keep our group sizes very small. Almost all of our classes have a cap of around 8 students.

How do you make sure my child gets enough attention?

The small class size means the tutor is able to give individual attention to each child. Our set-up allows us to allocate time to each child. However, if a child requires specialist help, it may be necessary to think about providing the child some extra time in one-to-one sessions or to double up group sessions on certain subjects.

How soon can my child expect improvement?

Every child is different so it all depends on the child and on you, the parent. You can see improvements in some children within the first couple of weeks and others after around 3 months. Consistency is key. Make sure all tasks are completed and that your child is actively listening and concentrating while in sessions.

What happens if my child is not progressing?

If you feel your child is not achieving the desired results, it is important for us to engage in a dialogue to discuss how we can move forward in order to establish the reasons why a child is not improving. It may also be the case that a child has improved, but struggles to perform in certain situations such as in a test or exam or when approaching certain topics or subjects
