Our centre

Welcome to the Taunton First Class Learning Math & English Tuition Centre. Rachel Holdom, study centre manager, has been running highly successful after-school maths and English classes for over 21 years (12 years Kumon). The FCL programme follows the UK National Curriculum and supports children in the local community with both maths and English tuition.

Students of all ages attend our tuition centre held at Holy Trinity Church Hall in Taunton on a Monday from 15:30-17:30. We cater for learners from reception in primary and preparing for SATS, through to secondary school and the GCSE exams. The FCL tutoring programme is also being run in many schools throughout the UK.

Through individualised programmes, our expert tutors support your child's learning in maths, English or both subjects together in order to help with their school studies, build confidence and develop independent learning skills, something that is extremely important in today's busy classrooms in schools.

Our English and maths tuition 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 practise, really does make a huge difference.

How it works

One of our First Class Learning tutors will meet with you to discuss how we can help your child with maths or English. They will then sit down with your child and complete an assessment to determine which path is most suitable for them. Once we have established your child’s needs, we will put together an individualised programme that will support and encourage your child’s learning. If you feel happy with our plan and that we are the best option for you and your child, they will then be able to start attending regular classes at the centre. In these classes they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked, returned and discussed with the tutor, who will give them a pack of daily homework to be completed before the next class.

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.
