Hello and Welcome!

Learn In A Supportive Environment With Lydia Scaltsas

Thank you for visiting LS Private Tuition! My name is Lydia and I am thrilled to have you here. I am a fully qualified Primary School Teacher with 6 years of experience working with children aged 5-12.

I have extensive experience in teaching all areas of both the Scottish and English Curricula, including key stage 1 and Key stage 2 tutoring both in-person and online. I also have experience in working with children with varying additional support needs and specialising in online tutoring for primary school children.

 

The LS Tuition Learning Space

Situated in East Edinburgh with ample, free off street parking available

The LS Tuition Learning Space is the perfect location, to cover all the needs of my students. For learning to be meaningful, it needs to be an all-encompassing holistic experience for the child; and the environment matters. The LS Tuition Learning Space has been specifically designed, not only to be a fun and engaging working space for children, but actually to play an active role in your child’s learning experience and development. 

As you can see, the classroom has been designed to stimulate your child to actively engage with every part of the space; whether this is reading in the library corner with a furry friend; displaying a piece of their work on the ‘Wonderful Work’ wall, spending 5 minutes in the ‘Mindfulness Area’ to discuss and regulate some tough emotions, selecting a positive affirmation and setting lesson intentions, rummaging through our expansive selection of active learning resources; or even just putting their birthday on the ‘Birthday Wall’ to make sure they receive a special something on their special day! 

This classroom has been designed through the eyes of a child and every inch has been developed to support your children in having a friendly, supportive and holistic learning experience alongside their regular schooling. All of my existing students will have the opportunity to move to face-to-face lessons and I really feel this signifies progression, towards a fully functioning hybrid teaching model. I would like to welcome you and your family to this beautiful space.

"Lydia has supported both my children massively. Lydia helped with my son's transition back to school post-pandemic and really helped rebuild his confidence in his ability. Also when my little one started school she was struggling with her focus due to missing so much nursery. Lydia has not only helped her but assured me everything we are experiencing is not a cause for concern, which is a massive relief. Having Lydia's support has been invaluable and I cannot fault our experience and highly recommend to anyone with primary-age children."

"My daughter was struggling with maths and can be very shy with new people so I wanted to make sure I found the right tutor. Lydia instantly made her feel at ease and got to know her and find out where she was with her maths knowledge so they could set a plan. I'm really pleased with the progress she had made so far, I can see my daughter's confidence growing with each lesson. We couldn't be happier with Lydia and would recommend her in a heartbeat."

"Our two girls, aged 11 and 9 spent a month working with Lydia this year for a few hours each day. Lydia's immensely warm and enthusiasitc personality meant they took no time to settle in with her and were keen to start every day with her. The teaching was clearly engaging; well structured and thoughtful, with tailored learning for each of the girls (and a great classroom environment she has created). She motivated them both; re-engaged them with maths and we're pleased to be continuing to work with Lydia each week to keep the momentum going. Thank you so much."

"We approached Lydia at LS Tuition to help our son improve his literacy and numeracy after lockdowns, he was also struggling with his resilience. Lydia assessed him and was absolutely spot on with her assessment. She knew exactly what he needed to focus on and explained her approach making sure his learning was in-line with his school learning. He really enjoys his sessions and looks forward to them, Lydia is warm, friendly and very patient with him. From a parental point of view, Lydia is professional and always provides feedback at the end of each session. Thank you Lydia."

Lydia was an absolutely first-class teacher! She successfully guided my son Lucas (P5) through English and maths with lots of patience. My son is now very confident with maths and ready for P6. I would definitely recommend.

"Lydia at LS Tuition has been working with my two daughters, to help with loss of learning and loss of confidence from schooling disruptions. Lydia is so well organised, the virtual classroom set up is excellent and she takes time at the start of every lesson to chat to the girls and build rapport. I feel relieved that my daughters are getting this extra support and I can see their confidence growing, particularly in maths. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lydia."

"I am so glad we found Lydia! She is an incredible tutor. Professional, patient and kind, but most of all, encouraging and fun. My children really enjoy their sessions and are making great progress. Lydia's child led, tailored approach ensures the kids are involved with and empowered by their learning. I can see definite shifts in their ability, largely brought on by the confidence that Lydia has instilled in them. The communication before and after the lessons is fist class and it's clear to see the amount of time Lydia devotes to each child to plan their sessions. Thank you Lydia!"

"My son has been working with Lydia for the past few months and I can already see a change in his abilities. I saw an improvement within the first few classes. Lydia is also great at keeping us updated on his progress at the end of the class which I find refreshing as its very thorough. The homework is great and it keeps my sons mind occupied. He confidence is growing and it makes us as parents very happy."

"Lydia has worked with my two sons for a year now and she is just fantastic. All lessons are tailored to suit their individual needs with both boys responding very positively to Lydia. She is very personable with the boys and always identifies their strengths and weaknesses ensuring her lessons take these into account. The feedback Lydia provides after each lesson is exceptional. Lydia is a very professional teacher who has a passion for teaching and getting the very best out of her students. I would highly recommend Lydia."

"Lydia has been a fantastic tutor for our 5 year daughter who had anxiety with her Maths and English after the lockdown. It affected her confidence in the classroom. Lydia assessed our daughter's learning challenges and provided a personalised structured schedule of topics to follow. Lydia and our daughter clicked instantly, she had taken to her gentleness, encouragment, patience and reassuring demeanour. In a matter of weeks our daughter moved up her reading level stage at school. With Lydia's professional, well-prepared teaching strategies her anxieties became less obvious and she is now much more confident and happier in class. Lydia is a wonderful teacher who guides your child to flourish and achieve their full potential."

"My 6 year old daughter was having some difficulties in school, I had chose Lydia and my only regret is not doing it sooner! She is a fantastic teacher, so friendly and encouraging with my daughter. Her confidence and abilities have came on so much in only a few lessons with Lydia. Would highly recommend Lydia if you are looking for a tutor."

"I cannot be more satisfied about the huge help I received. Worked with Lydia to boost the confidence of my son -and not just his knowledge- was a pleasure. I cannot thank her enough for the work she done with my 10 years old for his 11+. He made huge progress under Lydia's guide, she takes the time not only to teach him English and Maths in the best way possible but also give him time to explore his emotions. Edoardo felt extremely confident and safe with her. On top of this she is super enthusiastic during the lessons and absolutely reliable in terms of organisation and schedule (that, for me, is a plus value with a huge relevance). She always went the extra mile for him, sending him messages to encorage him before the exam. You cannot really find anyone better for your child, I promise! As Edo would say "She is the best teacher in the world!".
