How does enthuse assess my child?

Once you’ve enrolled we will call you to discuss how we can best help your child to fulfil their potential.

·         Your tutor will email you an assessment for your child to complete. This will include questions about different topics in maths and English.

·         Your child should complete their assessment without help. Younger children might some help to read the questions.

·         You then mark the assessment using the answers provided and enter the results on our online marking page.

This assessment will give the tutor an in-depth understanding of your child’s strengths and weaknesses. They will then be able to design a program of study that’s unique to your child’s individual needs.

How can I best help my child when they are studying their enthuse work?

 

You will have a key role to play in helping your child to succeed.

Most children work best when they are given a regular study time. This will depend on your own circumstances. Some children complete their work each morning, others set aside time in the evening. Find a time that suits your family and try to stick to it.

You will need to mark each piece of work (don’t worry, answers are provided) and encourage your child to correct any questions that they have got wrong.

Most importantly, provide lots of encouragement and praise and always try to be positive about your child’s ability. Working on his or her self-belief will help to improve his or her potential in maths or English.

Is it OK if my child does all five lessons/activities in one session?

 

Your tutor will send you five lessons/activities per week. It’s up to you when your child completes this work. However, most children make more progress when they study little and often. This is one of the advantages that enthuse tutoring has over more traditional one-hour-a-week private sessions. For this reason we wouldn’t recommend doing all the activities in one sitting.

How does enthuse differ from other tutoring services?

 

Well, here are your options:

·         You could try a private tutor; many are excellent and provide a very good service, but they will typically cost £20-40 per hour and finding a really good one can be hard.

·         Other tutoring services are available, but some employ tutors who are not fully qualified, experienced teachers.

 

With enthuse tuition each child is assessed by a professional teacher and given a program of study specifically designed to meet his/her individual needs. 

Who can benefit?

My child is struggling in maths and English at school – can enthuse help?

 

Yes. Many children fall behind in maths or English at school, which can lead to a spiral of poor self-esteem and turn them off the subject for good. If this happens it’s unlikely that they will ever really fulfil their potential in these key subjects.

Enthuse can help by carefully assessing your child and designing an individual study program. This will address any weaknesses in his or her understanding, and allow your child to reach their full potential.

My child is not being challenged at school – can enthuse help?

 

Yes. It can be hard for a teacher with a large class to bridge the gap between those children who are struggling and those who are not being challenged enough. So sometimes, by necessity, a school teacher will teach to ‘the middle’, and the most able may not be stretched.

Enthuse can help by assessing your child and designing an individual study program that will allow a more able child to achieve his or her potential.

Can my daughter start enthuse tutoring before she is 5 years old?

 

Because each child is treated as an individual and is given a tailored study program, we can usually accommodate more able under-5-year-olds. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this option, email info@enthuseeducation.co.uk.

My son is 12, can we sign him up for enthuse tutoring?

 

Many children over 11 would benefit from enthuse tutoring. The material that our tutors use in their individual study programs covers work up to and including Level 6 of the National Curriculum (the equivalent of a grade C in maths at GCSE). Please email us at personalise@enthuseeducation.co.ukto discuss your child’s needs in more detail.
