Maths and English Tuition at Smethwick Windmill

Welcome to the Smethwick First Class Learning Study Centre. Ipinder, Centre Manager, has been an outstanding teacher and Head of Maths in a local primary school for many years. He has also been tutoring successfully for many years.

Students of all ages are provided with a structured and individualised daily plan of study of around 10-15 minutes per day. 1:1 support is given whenever it is needed by a video call or phone call and weekly results are collected to ensure mastery and fluency.

Through our structured programmes, Ipinder individualises each child’s learning path, which is targeted to fill any existing gaps in their understanding. This therefore helps with their school work, builds confidence and develops independent learning skills, something that is extremely important in today's busy classrooms in schools.

Our maths and English 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.

How we work

The first step is to arrange a convenient time for your child to complete some initial assessments. These are done via a video call. The Centre Manager, Ipinder, will discuss how he can help your child with their maths, English or 11+. An individualised programme is put together that will support and encourage your child's learning enabling them to gain confidence and fill in gaps that they may have. Your child can then start completing the daily worksheets with ongoing support from the Centre Manager 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 their progress will be seen in the results. If they have any problems with the work, you can call your Ipinder at any time between 09:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday.

Student Success

My daughter has successfully gained a place at a local grammar school. Mr Singh’s support and guidance has helped her along the journey, as well as improving her confidence. Thanks for the help.
Rachel Green
Meer struggled in Year 2 and feared the SATs. The short daily bursts of work, meant the Meer could make great progress and be confident in school. He has come on great leaps in maths and English ever since starting.
Amit Patel
My daughter feared her GCSEs. Ipinder made the process very clear and set out a detailed plan for her. From a predicted grade 5, she achieved a grade 7. Thanks for the help.

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.
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.
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.
