Bright Light Education

What 1:1 services are offered?

We have a Tutor Referral Agency which offers 1:1 tuition for children of all primary school ages. Prior to the first session, you will have a chance to speak over the phone with potential tutors and  discuss your child’s needs and what you hope to gain from tutoring. If you are looking for small group tutoring, some of our tutors might be able to offer this. Our tutors are qualified teachers and are able to help with most primary school subjects. The most common requests are for maths and English tuition.

Key Stage One Tuition:

At the Reception and Key Stage 1 level, the role of the tutor is to inspire and create a confident and secure child, motivated to learn and excited by their education ahead. We want them to be eager about school and learning. Having a private tutor at this age can support all areas of the curriculum, and improve core skills including reading, phonics, writing, communication skills and numeracy. Our tutors aim to make sessions fun, creative and engaging in order to encourage and enthuse these young learners. Whatever your needs, our tutors can create the perfect learning programme for your child.

Key Stage Two Tuition:

At Key Stage Two level, it is important to ensure children have the confidence to reach their full potential. This means making sure the foundations of English and maths are in place, and working from there. Whether they need extra support to grasp these foundations or need extending to further these foundations, our tutors will work hard to ensure these goals are met. Furthermore, where needed, our tutors can also offer help and support in all the other subjects within the KS2 curriculum.

Examination preparation:

For those children sitting school entrance examinations, our tutors can focus on the core subjects of English and maths as well as verbal and non-verbal reasoning (if needed). They can also work on interview practice to boost your child’s confidence at what can be a daunting prospect. Bright Light Education Ltd also runs its own Creative Writing and Comprehension Courses which are ideal preparation for 11+ preparation. On occasion, Bright Light Education Ltd also runs Interview Practice and 11+ Revision Workshops.

“Thank you so much Charlotte for arranging an amazing tutor for my daughter at short notice. We are truly grateful to Rebecca who has been absolutely amazing!! We look forward to using your company again in the near future and recommend to friends & family. Rebecca is an incredible tutor and has helped my daughter come a long way in her creative writing within a short time. Right from the start, Rebecca made a conscious effort to make the lessons fun and interactive, and tailor made the lesson to meet the gaps in my daughter’s learning. We can’t thank her enough for all her time she’s spent with my daughter.” (Nazia, parent)

“It’s been amazing having you Danielle to help our son over the past couple of years. I think there are so many areas where you have made a massive difference …and also really boosted his confidence. I can’t quite believe that he won’t have you any more…..don’t think that’s quite sunk in! A huge thanks for all the very tailored work you’ve done regarding his dyslexia, all the extra reading etc and the really positive, fun ways you are always finding to make it all as enjoyable as possible. You have been amazing!” (Adele, parent)

“Cathal has proven to be a fantastic maths tutor for our daughter in Year 6. He engages well with her, is attuned to her needs and provides practical, simple methods and strategies that work for her and are repeatable. He is patient, empathetic and enthusiastic, prepares well for each lesson and maintains a positive, energised approach throughout. At the end of each lesson, he takes the time to debrief us and to incorporate any feedback into the next lesson. Our daughter looks forward to her lessons with him and enjoys his teaching style. We would happily recommend him to anyone, as long as we can still keep him…” (Hugh, parent)
