Why a Private Tutor is Important for Primary School children?

London tutoring

There are numerous different reasons why a child might benefit from having a private primary school tutor in London

Obvious reasons:

  • The teacher has made comments about the child needing some extra support
  • The parents can see that the child is finding areas of learning challenging
  • The child asks for private tutoring (not common but does happen!)

More abstract reasons:

  • The child is showing negative feelings towards a particular subject/homework/school in general (children do not hate learning, they hate that which is inaccessible to them – take a child who ‘hates’ maths – spend some focussed time with this child building their confidence and watch how they suddenly love maths!)
  • The child lacks confidence and second guesses themselves


The formative years are vital. Children are like sponges and what they are exposed to/their experience of education in these early years forms the foundations for how they will continue throughout their lives. Therefore, it is imperative that children engage with tutors or teachers who have studied and understands academic and socio-emotional child development.

It is critical to understand that anyone can teach learning content, but not everyone can instil enthusiasm for learning in a child. At LS Tuition in London, this is what we do as a tutor. We understand that sometimes, the reason for your child needing a London tutor may lie not in their misunderstanding of content but rather their attitude towards learning. We are here to motivate and inspire your children to be the best version of themselves and carry this with them throughout their lives.

A range of accessible classroom tools (pens, shapes, rulers, erasers etc.) allow the student and teacher to write and draw on the screen.

First Level / Key Stage 1 Tutoring

The First Level (Scotland) and Key Stage 1 (England) School Curricula emphasise 3 key areas:
– English 
- Maths
– Health & Wellbeing.
It is essential that all children be supported in developing their skillset with regard to reading, writing, grammar and spelling.

The Curriculum for Excellence (Scotland) and the National Curriculum (England) accentuate that all children have the right to be provided with opportunities that allow them to develop their critical/analytical thinking, creativity and problem solving skills.

Both First Level and KS1 build upon the Early Years curriculum whilst also scaffolding children’s learning and preparing them to enter into the Second Level or KS2 curriculum of school at the end of Primary 3/Year 2.

Second Level / Key Stage 2 tutoring

In Second Level and KS2, we build upon the First Level and KS1 curricula depending on whichever school curriculum your child is following. At this stage, we introduce children to more in-depth comprehension, types of questioning, HOTS (higher-order thinking skills), critical analysis, challenging spelling word patterns/grammatical rules and more demanding reading texts.

Tuition with this age-group will usually take place in the form of a guided Novel Study. Student and tutor will read a novel together and all areas of teaching and learning will take place within the context of this novel. Maths work in this final stage of Primary School builds upon skills already taught and supports the child in preparing for Secondary School.

Why contact us for a Primary School Tutoring in London?


LS Tuition is far more than a London tutoring service or just a London tutor. We understand children and what they need. – tutors and the correct teaching. We support your children in developing not only academically but also as people. We ensure to use consistent praise and reinforcement. We encourage your children’s development of their confidence alongside their academics. We equate success with effort and resilience, which leads to high academic achievement. We understand how to motivate your children and instil enthusiasm for learning which aids towards them becoming independent, confident and successful.

Our job is to get to know your child, who they are, what they like, build rapport and guide student to become confident, autonomous individuals who no longer require our company (even if they still want it!)

We ensure children are meeting all the appropriate benchmarks and learning outcomes for each school year or key stage and provide valuable insight into the curriculum and in altering and adjusting the learning/materials to meet the child at their level.

We target critical Maths teaching/learning by employing a Method over Formula Framework. Schools focus on teaching written methods of numeracy/formulas but spend far less time developing mental agility and problem-solving skills. It is these areas that we notice children find the most challenging. They can understand structured one-lane thinking but do not have the necessary skills to expand this into multi-lane, holistic, big picture thinking. At LS Tuition, we focus on supporting children in developing mental maths strategies and building their ‘bank’ of transferable skills.

At LS Tuition, we also have access to a wide range of learning resources from all key stage, that we use in our lessons and offer these to parents and support them in using these with their children.

Our reviews speak for themselves! A common theme running throughout all of our reviews is the happiness we cultivate within each child we work with. All academic success is a result of positive health and wellbeing. At LS Tuition, we are particularly skilled in ensuring academic success through positive health and wellbeing.

We work towards providing your children with a broad and deep understanding of content and equipping them with the necessary tools to succeed beyond primary school into secondary school and even into higher education in London. We cover all key stage levels, ensuring the very best teaching techniques are used.

There are many private tutors in London, but none like LS Tuition. We are the best primary tutors and private tutor in London covering many Primary subjects such as maths and English. As Tutor we provide face to face lessons, online lessons and the very best quality of teaching.
