Maths and English Tuition at Salford

Hello from the team at First Class Learning in Salford. We’re a Maths and English Tuition Centre led by Harriet, a qualified teacher with a wealth of experience across primary and secondary schools. Children learn with us from ages 4 – 16 and our individualised teaching programmes follow the National Curriculum.

Some children join us for a little help in just maths, or English, and some study both subjects with us. Our aim is to help with their school studies, build confidence and to develop independent learning skills.

Many young people join us for a specific purpose such as GCSE tuition and others join us because they are working at a higher level than their peers.

How we work

We'll chat either on the phone or over email, to discuss how we can help your child with maths or English. The next step is to come along to our centre in Swinton. Harriet will sit down with your child and they'll complete an assessment, so we can work out which of our paths is the most suitable for them. We work as hard as possible so that this doesn't feel like an exam or a test it's just a friendly way of us getting to know our students. The next step is to put together a bespoke plan that will support and encourage your child's learning. If you're happy with this, they will be able to start attending regular classes with us. In their classes, children complete a short piece of work which will be marked, returned and talked through with one of our assistants who will give them a programme of homework to complete before they next join us. Most important of all, we make learning as fun as possible. Our assessments are free, so we can work out together whether our First Class Learning sessions are the right path for your child.

Student Success

I would highly recommend First Class Learning to anyone. Harriet has been amazing very supportive, helpful and accommodating. My son really enjoys attending the sessions and they have really helped build his confidence and he has learnt some good techniques to help him with his work. The sessions went ahead smoothly through the Covid period, very professional.

My son has been with First Class Learning since September. They are great and really good with him in helping him with English specifically. The staff I have dealt with have been very good and professional, also just generally very friendly and nice with the kids. Also their approach to dealing with the COVID situation has been really good with homework packs delivered and face to face sessions replaced with Skype sessions. When face to face sessions were possible the hygiene standards were good and face masks worn at all times obviously. Very good and would definitely recommend if you’re looking for extra help with your children’s education. Thanks Harriet and Molly.

FAQ

Is FCL 1:1 Tuition?
We describe tuition at our Centre as 1:1 but in a group environment. Your child will receive their individual attention and support whilst attending our group classes. FCL offers structure and daily practice, with a ‘little and often’ approach, enabling them to retain what they have learnt & gain confidence with ease. It also develops good study habits and independent learning so that they don’t become dependent on others teaching them.
What if I miss a session or the Centre is closed?
We operate for 50 weeks of the year, only closing for two weeks at Christmas. If a session is missed we ‘owe the session back’ on another occasion. If absence is due to illness we do ask for as much notice as possible and Harriet will liase with you to fit your child’s session in at a different time.
How much homework is given? Does it have to be completed?
This is a partnership between ourselves and you. We do set 10-15 minutes of homework per subject to be completed per night but this should be something your child can do independently. We do ask that they have a quiet work space in which to do this and you will have handbooks which will allow you to support in marking their work.
I want to know your prices- can I have some more information?
If you would like to know the prices then please get in touch using the form below. Harriet can provide the information as this is dependent on the number of children. We do offer sibling discounts and multiple subject discounts too. There is no fixed term and we do offer flexible payment plans.
