Welcome to the Ickenham First Class Learning Study Centre. Sejal Patel, centre manager, has been running highly successful after-school maths and English classes for over 10 years. This centre is Ofsted Registered and childcare vouchers are accepted.
COVID-19 UPDATE:- The centre is now fully open and is following UK government guidelines to create a secure learning environment for your child.
Students of all ages attend our study centre on a Monday for around 20-30 minutes per subject. In these classes they will hand in their previous week of work and complete that day's worksheets which will be marked, returned and discussed with the tutor. They are then set a programme of work of 10-15 minutes per day to do at home, practising what they have learnt in the class to ensure mastery and fluency at each step.
Through our structured programmes, Sejal individualises each child’s learning path, which is targeted to fill any existing gaps in their understanding. This helps with their school work, builds confidence and develops independent learning skills, all of which are extremely important in today's busy classrooms in schools.
Our English and maths 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 practice, really does make a huge difference.
Our First Class Learning Centre Manager will call you to discuss how we can help your child with maths or English. They will then assist your child to complete an assessment 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. 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 or online. In these classes they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked, returned and discussed with the Centre Manager, who will give them a detailed programme of homework to be completed before the next class.
No problem, just tell us the best time to call
