It’s been such a great experience and great support for my 6 year old daughter. She not only loves her class but it was great fun for my little one. Staff are really supportive and it was such a great help in her education. I would recommend First Class Learning to new parents. And a big thank you to the First Class Learning team for their amazing job.

Maths and English Tuition at Streatham

Welcome to the Streatham First Class Learning Study Centre. Nivashnie Padayachee, Centre Manager, a qualified and experienced teacher, has been running highly successful after-school maths, English and science classes for over 5 years.

Unlike many other after-school tuition options, our courses have been designed in the UK to align with the National Curriculum. This ensures everything your child learns will directly help them at school, avoiding any confusion with weird maths techniques or irrelevant English tasks.

We aim to create confident, excited learners. Every programme is designed around the students’ needs, which guarantees the work is not too hard or too easy, the best way to build confidence. Our materials are dynamic and interesting ensuring students stay engaged with learning.

Tuition is not just about solving problems, it is also about helping each student become the best they can be. Our highly tailored approach can overcome challenges for some students, and help others avoid boredom by stretching them. We aim to help them excel and reach their potential.

Our study programmes are flexible and tailored to learners' individual needs and abilities so students move on only when they are confident with a topic. Regular testing ensures that the best possible progress is made. The 'little and often' approach, with plenty of repetition and practice, really does make a huge difference.

How we work

The first step is to arrange a convenient time for your child to complete some initial assessments. These assessments are free and are carried out at the centre so that your child can get a feel for the environment. The Centre Manager will discuss the results of the assessments with you and explain how they can help your child with their maths or English. We then design a programme unique to your child’s needs. Our maths and English learning pathways are designed to work with the National Curriculum and build the skills needed step-by-step. This is what makes FCL so effective and how students start to understand things that have previously puzzled them. Weekly work is planned and scheduled so it is easy to follow. This work is picked up each week at our centres and parents can feel relaxed knowing their child has clear direction. Our plan will include small bite-size tasks to complete each day through printed worksheets (not more screen time learning). We also supply handbooks as we encourage students to mark their work, both for skills development and so they can spot mistakes immediately. At our inspiring learning centres, we answer questions and go over completed work. Importantly we challenge the students to make sure they have not only finished but also understood the topics. Some elements are only marked at the centre, but all work is spot-checked.

Tuition Services


The First Class Learning maths programme is designed to equip your child with the fundamental skills required for success in school mathematics. Using a range of resources, it covers all the essential areas of the school curriculum.


Our English programme concentrates on reading, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation, creative writing and handwriting. The initial diagnostic testing assesses the child's needs so that we can provide an individualised programme.


We offer science tuition at Key Stages 3 and 4, including preparing students for GCSE exams. The science programme matches the National Curriculum and is based on our extensive knowledge and experience of teaching secondary school science for over ten years.


How does FCL differ to 1:1 tutoring?
FCL offers structure and daily practice, with a ‘little and often’ approach, enabling the child to retain what they have learnt and gain confidence with ease. It also develops good study habits and helps students to become more independent, taking control of their own learning.
Can I sit with my child while they do their work at the centre?
If your child is worried about coming into their first session, parents can come in to begin with but you won’t need to stay for long. Once they see the friendly faces and welcoming atmosphere, they are happy to stay on their own. We like to encourage students to be independent and confident.
If I join, am I tied into FCL for a set amount of time?
No, not at all. FCL is primarily a long term programme, not a 'quick fix'. However, there are many reasons why you may need to stop, so I just ask for a month's notice.
How will FCL help with my child’s school work?
By filling in any gaps they may have and developing their confidence we can change their attitude to a positive one and at the same time give them the skill sets needed to carry through to all school work.
