WELCOME! to the first blog on our new and refreshed website, which also coincides with the launch of our new centre in Wimbledon.
Here at ITS we take tuition seriously. Our new Parent Zone not only gives information on how ITS works, but it also provides helpful tips on improving your child’s learning experience, as well as the latest news and events.
We know that parents are increasingly turning to private tutors to supplement their child’s education. The proportion of pupils receiving private or home tuition has risen by over a third in the past decade, from 18% in 2005 to 25% in 2015, according to a recent Sutton Trust/Ipso Mori report. So it’s more important than ever that you have the right tools available to assist you in making the right decisions when it comes to choosing the right tuition programme for your child.
Experience and flexibility are important aspects of the ITS service, but we also understand that tuition is more than just meeting academic targets, it’s also about building self-confidence as well as learning in a safe and caring environment, whether it’s in small groups or one to one at home.
Supporting parents in the wider context of education is also important to us. In our hot topic section and future blogs, we plan to cover a range of issues useful to parents. Our top five homework help tips give some handy thought points on helping your child make the most of homework.
So we may have a new, exciting website packed with the latest information on tuition here at ITS, but our aim remains the same – to help your child excel.
If you have any comments on the information or perhaps have a topic you would like us to cover then let us know here (email link).
