At Confidence Boost, we have no interest in big group tutoring. However, each term, we offer free study sessions for our students to give them an opportunity to ask questions or receive help with their homework. We cover skills in tutoring, and ensure that students have everything they need to get ahead, so it’s not often that we have the time to do much plain old homework help!
For students who want an extra hand with their revision strategies, study or homework questions, our homework/study sessions are available at no charge to current students who want some extra support. On average, we offer two sessions each for primary and high school students each term.
We started offering our free study sessions because we recognise that sometimes children do want more in-depth help with their specific homework or upcoming exams. At tutoring, we do help with the odd homework question, but prefer to focus our attention on building long-term skills so that your child can complete their own homework and assignments, rather than relying on tutoring to get them through. As much as we absolutely love our students, we want to make sure that they are self-reliant, and can complete work on their own.
Free study sessions are open to all current students (and we usually offer them the opportunity to bring a friend), and are designed to give students space and assistance to complete work. Children may help each other, ask a tutor questions or access extra help and resources. All homework sessions are optional, and we see them as an opportunity to give you something extra during term-time.
