Who we are

Welcome to the St Johns Wood Tuition Centre incorporating First Class Learning. We support children of ages ranging from 3 years to 16 years old, from both state and independent sectors in maths and English. We aim to build confidence and help each child to realise their potential.

Students of all ages attend our study centre at St Marks Church Hall in NW8. We cater for learners from Early Years and primary through to GCSE. The pace and content of the  learning is individualised for each student. 

Under Raxita's unique instruction  the learning content and pace will be individualised to meet your  children's personal learning needs, to help them gain confidence in their  own abilities and to develop independent learning skills.  Your  children can harness their new skills to make better progress in their  studies at school .

Raxita believes it important that children develop problem solving experience from the early stages and so students are taught from early on how to apply maths to problem solving and are also taught step by step guide to comprehension and creative writing. At the St Johns Wood tuition centre we believe 'SEEK EXCELLENCE AND SUCCESS WILL FOLLOW'

How does it work?

You will be invited to bring your child in for an assessment and to meet Raxita. Your child's curriculum level will be determined and the features of the proposed learning path will be explained to you, with any questions answered.

If after the assessment/consultation meeting you feel that the St Johns Wood Tuition Centre is right for you, your child can begin attending classes and gaining the benefits of FCL study. This involves regularly attending the centre on a weekly basis. 

At each session the student will complete a short piece of work which will be marked then reviewed by Raxita. Students will be given a detailed programme of homework to be completed before the next class.

Your next step

If you think that FCL might be right for you please contact Raxita to arrange an assessment.

You will then be able to find out how your child can become one of the growing number in the UK enjoying success with First Class Learning.
