What our Key Stage 1 Tutoring includes

Tutoring is a one-to-one experience between a primary tutor and a child. Each child works on critical essential stage skills such as the foundations of numbers and phonics. We can help children with their reading, writing, and maths skills.

The critical goals of key stage 1 tuition are for students to understand better key concepts, increase confidence/self-esteem and improve academic success.

The key stage one tutor can assess and analyse knowledge gaps and develop a personalised plan to support each student in achieving their goals. In key stage 1, tuition focuses on numeracy, literacy, confidence and support.

Lydia is qualified to work with children at this level and whilst the primary key stage (KS1) is typically for children aged 5-7, we also offer key stage 1 tuition for students in year 2/primary 3 or year 3/primary 4 who are require further support in their understanding of key stage skills.
