Why use Mindfull Tutoring?

Owner, Claire Howarth, has a very hands-on approach to her business and often personally checks in on students’ progress and observes them during lessons.

Real, measurable results
We have created a tailored learning programme to target areas for improvement, filling learning gaps that can go unnoticed in a classroom situation due to the sheer numbers of students and varying needs.
Low teacher / student ratios
We have consistent ratios of one tutor to two students. We find this extremely valuable as it allows us to constantly monitor students and capture all teachable moments.
Private lessons are also available at all levels and for all subjects.
We work alongside your child's classroom teacher to identify learning gaps and to reinforce and extend classroom education.
Who suits Mindfull Tutoring?
Every student will benefit from tutoring, but needs can be divided into three main categories.
Students wanting to reach their full potential
Often parents want to help their children achieve the very best results they are capable of. Tutoring extends their classroom learning, solidifies concepts and provides opportunities to further clarify new learning.
Gifted and Talented Students
Sometimes gifted students’ learning needs are not being fully challenged in the classroom setting due to their high level of achievement or they want to spend more time extending their learning in a subject. At tutoring, students are assessed and taught to their academic age rather than their chronological age.
Students struggling with learning
For various reasons students have missed learning opportunities and their families want help in order for them to feel confident with their learning. At tutoring the assessment will identify learning gaps and tailor the tuition programme to fill these.
