I follow the UK Curriculum using a variety of materials primarily from Galore Park including:
Grammar & Punctuation
Comprehension & Writing
The online tutorials are very interactive and the child should have access to a touch-screen device and a pen – e.g. an iPad and stylus.
It is of huge benefit to a child to read out loud their own stories and comprehension answers which I can correct as we go.
I also tutor specific things to do and to avoid doing to gain more marks during tests and school entrance exams.
If your child is having specific difficulty with a topic we can focus on that over a number of sessions. For example if a child is struggling with punctuation we can focus on that in the sessions and for homework.
If your child is generally ok with the material which has been covered at school, we can use the tutorial sessions to get ahead of the curriculum by learning about what is coming up at school in the next week or so.
This can include comprehensions, spellings and reading complex sections of the book they are currently focussed on to make sure they understand the text and can spell any words of interest.
We can also cover synonyms and antonyms in the tutorial sessions as well as more complex concepts such as metaphors, humour, rhetoric, sarcasm and irony in text.
