English Tutoring for Confidence & Skills – Stanmore, Parramatta, Pennant Hills, West Ryde & Ashfield
At Confidence Boost, we look at English tutoring in different ways to help Stanmore, Parramatta, Pennant Hills, West Ryde and Ashfield children. We take an approach that will help best, depending on your child’s age and needs. For younger children, English tutoring might mean extra help with reading fluency or phonics. It might mean help with writing – from spelling common words to creating complex sentences. From there, children learn more about comprehension and inference. They learn to analyse texts and write paragraphs and expositions. By the time children hit high school, our concern is on structure and analysis. What is your child’s teacher looking for? How do you create a piece of writing that meets the school criteria and shows that you understand the work? As children move through high school, we become more focused on analysis – the process of demonstrating critical thought and reflecting on the purpose of evidence and argument.
English tutoring isn’t a one-size fits all approach. When we meet your child at their first free session, we will be looking to see how they approach their work, and where we need to spend time to make sure they thrive in English!
English Tutors PLUS Confidence Boosting at Stanmore, Parramatta, Pennant Hills, West Ryde & Ashfield
In primary schools, children mainly focus on reading and writing in English and they love tutors at Stanmore, Parramatta, Pennant Hills, West Ryde and Ashfield. In the early years of school, our English tutors focus on reading, writing and spelling skills – and having some fun of course! This helps children to learn the basics: sentence structure, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary development, spelling and writing style. Once they begin to write sentences, our English tutors focus on writing paragraphs, short stories and letters.
Particularly in the younger years, reading is also a big focus. By improving their reading skills, children gain confidence in speaking and reading fluently. Our tutors in Stanmore, Parramatta, Pennant Hills, West Ryde and Ashfield (Sydney) are happy to work with kids to really need a hand to get back on track, all the way up to children who are thriving and just need more confidence to take their skills to the next level.
In high school, your child’s English tutor will want to make sure that they can write a strong paragraph and structure their ideas. One of the hardest areas of English is analysis; being able to articulate why an idea or argument is important, and how it links back to the topic. High school English tutoring places emphasis on clear structure and strong analytical skills. The look of relief when students finally realise what that means, and how easy it is to achieve is amazing!
We have a highly skilled team who focus primarily on the ares that children find difficult. Because everything is tailored, we are able to pinpoint gaps and needs, and help them to develop their skills. Our classes help children to get on track with better English. And of course, when we say ‘class’, we’re not talking about a group. Your child will never share their tutor with more than one other student. We want to encourage collaboration, but at all times, your child’s needs come first.
Don’t forget Maths as well as English Tutoring at Parramatta, Stanmore, Pennant Hills, West Ryde & Ashfield!
Maybe your child needs a tutor for English, and also some tutoring in maths, so we can do both at Parramatta, Stanmore, Pennant Hills, West Ryde and Ashfield. We often have parents ask if we can help their kids with maths as well, and the answer is always a resounding “Yes”. We are all about helping the “whole” child, not just one tiny little area, or single subject like English! We work with a number of maths tutors, and a number of our staff are able to cover multiple subjects.
Our fees are also affordable, and we charge on an hourly basis. We always start with a free session so that you can get to know us, and we can find out what it is your child really needs – it also helps you to understand our way of teaching. During this session our tutors get to identify your child’s strengths and learning gaps so they are able to determine the primary focus of tutoring.
Tutors monitor each and every student and love to keep parents up to date about their child’s skills and performance. We offer many different streams of English tutoring. Rather than using a blanket approach, we cover a variety of different skills. These include general English, reading, writing, spelling, pronunciation, debating, public speaking, handwriting, essay writing, etc..
Although English is a challenging language, we have a passionate, dedicated and skilled team who teach English in a relaxed way so that children will be able grasp it more quickly and take control of their language and studies.
