Jenny set up her First Class Learning Penarth centre in 2017, after looking for a change in career direction. Jenny always had a love for maths and wanted to start her own business that would provide the flexibility needed to work around her family. Another decision making factor was wanting a business that was both stimulating and rewarding. Jenny decided to launch her own tuition centre after being particularly impressed with the quality of the teaching materials, providing a huge USP over other similar franchises in her area.
Jenny opened her centre with 4 students on board, adding to these numbers gradually throughout the first year. In the second year of the centre opening, Jenny saw the student numbers grow rapidly, noticing a particular growth spurt in Autumn. By the second year the centre had built up a positive local reputation, contributing heavily to new students coming on board, through word of mouth.
