Maths and English Tuition in Hendon

Welcome to the Hendon First Class Learning Centre, which is run by Poonam Singhania and Aastha Singhania, as well as centres in Wood Green and Primrose Hill. We support children from the age of 4 to 16 in the local community with both Maths and English tuition.

Students of this age group are welcome to attend our study centre at Hendon Methodist Church, NW4 4EH. We cater for learners from Early Years and Primary through to GCSE, and adult students. Our tuition centre incorporates First Class Learning, SATs, 11-plus, 13+ and GCSE worksheets.

We will provide your child with a structured and an individualised daily study plan of about 10-15 minutes each day, with 1:1 support given whenever needed by a video or a phone call.

COVID-19 News - In line with recent measures this centre is temporarily closed for face-to-face visits. However, we continue to support the students using Zoom and Skype, with our worksheets delivered or posted.

The learning content and pace will be individualised to meet your child’s personal learning needs to help them gain confidence in their own abilities, develop independent learning skills and enable them to realise their potential. This newfound confidence in their ability can help them to make better progress in their studies at school.

We believe it is important to develop problem solving skills and comprehension skills early on so that children can apply themselves in every other subject in school.

At First Class Learning we believe in 1% steps to 100% success.

How It Works

Poonam or Aastha will meet you in person (currently on Zoom) to discuss how we can help your child with maths and/or English. We will then assess your child to determine which path is most suitable for them. Once we have established your child's needs, we will put together a bespoke course of action that will support and encourage your child's learning. Upon your approval, your child will then be able to start the course with the worksheets, attending regular classes at the centre or online, with support from us. During classes, they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked, reviewed and corrections done. The student will then be given homework to practise the skill set covered in class to be completed over the following week. The homework time required is 10-15 mins daily. We encourage for any corrections to be done on the same day so that your child quickly learns from any mistakes made, and you can see the progress made over the week. Our programme is a partnership between First Class Learning, your child, and you as parents, and therefore, communication between all is important.

Student Success

Couldn’t recommend FCL Hendon enough. During this pandemic in particular, they have kept in touch with all the students and given out work to help our children, The whole team is so hardworking! Thank you so much.
Neha Babulal
My experience with First Class Learning is 5 stars. I'm a Mum of 2 children and the older one (now in Year 9) has been with the Hendon centre for the past 6 years. First Class Learning Hendon builds children’s confidence, a bit of repetition gives them opportunity to practise. It’s hard work but definitely worth it to see them progressing and being full of confidence at school. We attend in Hendon and the staff are always very helpful and hard working. I really appreciate and honestly can recommend to everyone.

Fantastic service! Both children are consistently top of the class and my eldest got into a top Secondary School.

FAQ

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.
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.
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.
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.
