ONLINE TUTORING

 

Helping your child stay on top of their learning.

TEACHERS AS TUTORS

We know that your child needs a tutor who is both knowledgeable and supportive, so we choose our tutors very carefully.

All of our tutors are qualified and experienced classroom teachers who have also been trained in the use of coaching techniques. This allow our tutors to help your child take control of their learning, improve their study skills and quickly build their confidence.

CONFIDENCE THROUGH COACHING

Red Bird uses coaching techniques to help learners take charge of their own learning. We help them to honestly identify their areas of strength and areas for development and support them to set their own goals for improvement between sessions.

This keeps them in the driving seat of their own education!

Saturday Small Group Boosters

At our Dunstable tutoring centre.
90-minute sessions each Saturday.

Small group boosters allow learners to work with a teacher and a small group of peers.

Working in a group allows students to share their thoughts and support each other in a caring, fun and friendly environment.

Students set their own targets to achieve before the next session, encouraging them to take ownership of their education.

Groups available for ages 5 – 18 years
English – Maths – Science

Ideal for…

Small group booster sessions are ideal for learners who have lost their confidence.

The group provides the opportunity to practise and master the foundational skills of a subject, leading to a deeper understanding that can be built on in the classroom.

In Maths, this may mean consolidating work on times tables, fractions, decimals and percentages and the four operations, before moving onto higher level work.

In English, we provide lots of opportunities to improve reading comprehension and enhance writing skills by learning vocabulary, improving the use of grammar and studying language techniques.

In Science, we ensure that the key concepts of Biology, Physics and Chemistry are mastered before moving onto more complex concepts and skills. We also focus on the theory behind practical methods, leading to deeper understanding.

Max. 3 learners per group.
£150 per learner per month per subject.

What Parents are Saying

“Huge, huge recommendation. What a special team and approach Red Bird Tutoring have. Sue Michaels and her fab team have literally been a port in the storm for us during lock down. They have been supporting and enhancing home learning for my secondary school child for 7 weeks now. The tutoring has engaged and supported him amazingly and we’re so grateful that we found them as a company. The tutors have been so kind and helpful – his confidence has soared. They’ve been a huge support and a friendly face throughout. Big thanks from us :-)”

Parent of KS3 Maths & Science learner

“The difference that Red Bird has made to my son in the few weeks that he has attended has been nothing short of miraculous.”

Parent of GCSE English learner

“Red Bird have been amazing with my Year 11 daughter. She was working at 3/4 in Maths, and today we got her results and are ecstatic to report that she has achieved a 7.

Red Bird can absolutely take credit for this success; they have built her confidence no end over the last 6 months and helped her in the areas she was struggling.”

Parent of GCSE Maths learner

“With the help of Red Bird Tutoring, my daughter received an Academic Progress Award today, which would not have been possible without the help, support and care she got from this amazing team. Thank you all so very much.”

Parent of Year 6 English learner

“I can’t rate Red Bird Tutoring highly enough for their absolute support for my son.”

Parent of GCSE English learner

“We started our son at Red Bird Tutoring in May 2019. He went from and expected grade 2 in Maths to an actual grade 4 obtained. I look back with regret on the missed opportunity I had to start him sooner. Who knows, he could have had a 6 or 7.”

Parent of GCSE Maths learner

“Red Bird really make the effort to find out what makes each child tick, which is so important when inspiring young people to learn well.

My son willingly gives up a chunk of his valuable loafing time every Saturday morning for his Red Bird sessions – no complaints – and he comes out smiling and happy to tell me what he’s been learning.

I consider this very high praise, coming from a teenager and I am happy that his confidence in this subject is growing well in advance of his GCSEs.”

Parent of GCSE Maths learner

From the first GCSE English language session that my son attended, his confidence has grown.

Parent of GCSE English learner

“My son says he wishes his experience at school was like that at Red Bird. He feels able to ask questions and learn without feeling under pressure.”
