Our centre

I am delighted to be able to offer the widely acclaimed First Class Learning tuition programmes to the families and children of the mid-Devon region. Students of all ages attend my study centre, based in Scout Hall in Kingsteignton.

FCL Newton Abbot, offers Maths and English teaching plans that are tailored to meet the student’s individual needs. I create exciting learning environments and teach in a way that your child is most likely to learn. Students move on to new topics only when they are confident with the previous one.

As a qualified teacher with 15 years experience, I specialise in 'Precision Teaching' supporting children to accelerate their progress in the core skills for maths and English success. As well as teaching in a school, I develop and publish learning resources and provide consultancy support to other schools in the region. You can feel confident that I'm up to date with current practice and the requirements of the National Curriculum taught in schools.

At First Class Learning Newton Abbot we believe in 1% steps to 100% success.

How it works

I will visit you at home to carry out a diagnostic assessment. This is used to determine which path is most suitable for your child. If you are happy with the plan and feel that First Class Learning is the best fit for you and your child, a personalised study programme can commence. This consists of weekly 1:1 sessions at the centre, together with short daily homework tasks that you mark together. Handbooks with guidance and answers are included in your membership. There is no obligation to take-up a membership following the initial assessment. You may elect a single subject membership which includes 30 minutes 1:1 tuition or a combined subject membership which includes 1 hour of 1:1 tuition.

From the basics of reading, writing and spelling to comprehension and creative writing skills, the First Class Learning English Programme follows principles that make it ideal for all learners, whether primary or secondary. Drawing on a variety of imaginative materials, the programme develops the key skills that allow the learner to read and write fluently, confidently and with enjoyment.
