How we work

• The first step is to arrange a convenient time for your child to complete some initial assessments. The Centre Manager, Adam, will discuss how he can help your child with their maths or English. • An individualised programme is put together that will support and encourage your child's learning, enabling them to gain confidence and fill in any gaps that they may have. • Your child can then start completing the daily worksheets with ongoing support from Adam whenever it is needed. Our programme is a partnership between First Class Learning, your child and you as parents so communication between all is important. • We encourage all parents to mark the homework daily so that corrections can be made as they go through the week and yur child's progress will be seen in the results. If they have any problems with the work, you can call Adam at any time between 09:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday.

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.


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 independent learning so that they don’t become dependent on others teaching them.
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.
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 independent and confident students.
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.
