FAQ

1. What is the aim of the courses?


The aim of our courses is to help students extend their knowledge, improve their performance and achieve higher grades in the subjects we teach. We enable our students to achieve a deeper understanding of their chosen subject, to develop powerful exam and revision techniques and to face exam-style questions with confidence.


2. When do courses run?


Our classes run weekly for the length of the school term (with evening and weekend sessions available) and are delivered online using the state-of-the-art educational platform i-Nucleus. We also offer Easter Revision Courses for external students.


3. What subjects do you offer?


We offer courses in Maths, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science and English.


4. Why don’t you teach other courses beyond Science, Maths and English?


Our tutors are truly passionate about science and maths, which is why we focus our efforts on these subjects. We can offer advice if you are looking for expert help with other subjects, but we prefer to specialize in what we do best.


5. Who are your tutors?


All of our tutors have superb teaching skills, university degrees in their academic fields and are DBS checked. Furthermore, they are truly passionate about science and maths. This is how we ensure that our students receive the highest standard of tuition possible, with the necessary depth and breadth required to succeed in their exams.


6. How many students are in each class?


We limit our classes to a maximum of 10 students, combining the benefits of private tutoring and a collaborative learning environment. Our students thrive because they are given the undivided attention that they need. All of our students share the same ambition for improvement and success, ensuring effective learning.


7. Do students need to have any specific grades to enroll?


There are no requirements for grades. Regardless of how confident our students feel, and no matter what their predicted grades are, our courses will give them the tools that they need to improve their performance. Don’t forget that even if they are predicted high grades, it is the fine details that will differentiate them.


8. If a student is booked for a class, can they just come to the sessions where they feel they have gaps?


Unfortunately, not. To ensure that we deliver the quality that we promise, we ask our students to attend all the sessions of the courses that they have enrolled for. All of our sessions are available live online so all of our students can join our classes remotely. If students are otherwise unable to attend, we can provide notes to help them catch up before their next session. We are unable to refund any missed classes.


9. What is the policy regarding lateness?


To ensure that classes can run in a timely manner, and that our students get the full time that they have paid for, we ask students to be ready 5 to 10 minutes before the start of the class. We may make exceptions within reason, but we will not accept consistently late students.


10. How much homework will a student get?


We will always give our students homework to ensure that they build on the progress made in each session. Depending on the subject, they should expect about 1.5 to 2 hours of personal study per week, reviewing the topics discussed in the previous session and completing homework for the next.


11. What happens if a student is unable to do their homework?


We trust that we will provide our students with all the tools that they need to complete their homework with confidence. Naturally, we expect that they will sometimes come back with questions and problems that they were unable to complete. This is part of the learning process, as they are pushing their limits. We only ask that they devote a reasonable amount of effort to their homework to make sure that they are getting the most out of the course.


12. Where can I find the course prices?


The best way to find out about course fees is visit our e-store where you will be able to check the availability of our classes and see our fees.
