Our centre

Welcome to the St Johns Wood Tuition Centre delivering First Class Learning. The Centre is run by Raxita Kantaria and is her flagship Centre with another in Edgware.

She is qualified to deliver the First Class Learning study programme and holds an enhanced DBS certificate (CRB)<br /> For over 16 years, 8 years of which was running one of the most successful Kumon centres, Raxita has been providing tuition to children from both state and independent schools giving them confidence and equipping them with skills for all Keys stages as well as 7+, 11+, 13+ and GCSE.

Raxita's two daughters achieved places at North London independent/grammar schools and attend The Henrietta Barnet School, achieving top grades in both GCSE's.

Raxita supports children of ages ranging from 3 years to 16 years old, from both state and independent sectors in maths and English. By building confidence she enables each child to realise their potential.

Students of all ages attend the 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 it works

Raxita will meet with you to discuss how she can help your child with maths and/or English. She will then sit down with your child and complete an assessment to determine which path is most suitable . Once she has established your child’s needs, she will put together a bespoke course of action that will support and encourage your child’s learning. At this point you can choose the class day that suits you and your child, they will then be able to start attending regular classes at the centre.Each week during class students complete a short piece of work which will be marked, reviewed and corrections done. The student will then be given homework to practice the skill set done at class to be completed over the following week.

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.
