Maths and English Tuition at Ingleby Barwick and Yarm

Welcome to the Ingleby Barwick and Yarm First Class Learning Centre. We support young learners in the local community with both maths and English tuition. Chris Collins, the Centre Manager, has over thirty years’ teaching experience in secondary, primary and out-of-school settings.

Our maths and English programmes are structured, flexible and tailored to learners’ individual needs and abilities so your child will only move on when they are confident with a topic. The ‘little and often” approach, with plenty of repetition and practice, really does make a huge difference.

Following an initial assessment, Chris will provide a structured, personalised daily plan of around 10-15 minutes study every day. One-to-one support is given when it is needed and youngsters are supported to become confident, independent learners through the development of mastery and fluency.

How we work

The first step is to arrange a convenient time for your child to complete an initial assessment. The Centre Manager, Chris, will discuss how he can help your child with their maths or English. A personalised programme is put together that will support and encourage your child’s learning enabling them to gain confidence and develop the knowledge and skills they need. Your child can then start attending regular classes at the centre or online and completing the daily worksheets with ongoing support from the centre manager whenever it is needed. Our programme is a partnership between First Class Learning, your child and you as parents so communication between us all is important. We encourage all parents to mark the homework daily so that corrections can be made as your child goes through the week and progress can be seen in the results. You can call Chris throughout the week if there are any questions or your child is stuck with something.
