HeadStart is a small local company based around Solihull and Sutton Coldfield. We are experienced teachers who are passionate that with the right help, all children can reach their full potential. As we are independent, not a national franchise, there are no set programmes of work provided for the children to follow which quickly become outdated and are impersonal to your child’s needs. All our tutors are fully qualified and knowledgeable teachers, not teaching assistants or students.
We aim to offer good value and an easy process.
We’ve hand-picked experienced, friendly teachers (DBS checked) who will know how to get the best out of your child. We are confident you will feel comfortable entrusting your child to them.
We have endeavoured to set up in convenient locations within easy reach of your local school with ample parking for safe pick-ups and drop offs.
We want them to fulfil their potential and love learning! As trained teachers we have the skills to help motivate and build the confidence they need to do their best. We know the curriculum and current methods of teaching so they will be learning skills and methods that will support their schoolwork and not conflict or confuse them.
After assessing your child’s needs we will plan a learning programme that is unique to them but isn't fixed in stone. It will develop with them as they progress and as we better get to know their individual learning style. You can even let us know about anything they’ve struggled with at school during the week and we can help address it in the next session.
Sessons may include:
|Revision exercises from the previous session to check they have retained what they have learnt so we can consolidate if necessary.|
|An introduction to a new learning objective, which will involve direct teaching input.|
|Opportunities to practise skills. This may be a quick self-assessing game on an iPad or more in-depth computer software that monitors their achievements. It may also be a good old-fashioned worksheet, a longer written task or maybe even a game with a peer or teacher.|
|A review of the session's learning.|
