Zoom – Why we use it

Posted Posted in Blog

By now you’ve probably seen it in the headlines. You’ll have heard people talking about it. And my guess is, it’s for the wrong reasons. Zoom has made a lot of headlines recently for an apparent lack of security or safety so I thought I’d write this next blog to determine fact from fiction. Like […]

Posted Posted in Blog

  With things moving very quickly and the governments briefing yesterday afternoon, we’ve updated our guidance. In line with government advice, we have now changed all tuition to online instead of face to face.  Online tuition has always been an option for all students. It runs in exactly the same way as face to face […]

Group Tuition

Posted Posted in Blog

We’ve just launched our new group tuition classes and we’re delighted to say they are going swimmingly!

Christmas Challenge

Christmas Challenge This month, rather than writing a blog about what we’ve been up to, or what’s new in education, I’m going to set you all a festive challenge! If you’re anything like me, there’s normally lots of food, drink and games around Christmas time. This Christmas, I’m going to set you all a game […]

How To Avoid Getting Stressed With Maths

Posted Posted in Blog

Last week was mental health awareness day. One of the regular things I see and hear from students is that maths stresses them out. It makes them anxious and it makes them panic. They don’t get it, they find it hard and it becomes a huge source of (unnecessary) problems. Therefore, it seemed fitting to […]
