Etc’s on line tutoring was developed out of an actual demand from parents. Every week calls and messages come in from parents wanting extra tuition for their children. Our traditional method of teaching found itself unable to supply the demand.
Some years ago we asked two psychologists to look at the outcomes of traditional standardised tests. We wanted the tests to tell us where children were up to – and their possible potential. The psychologists then linked up with our teachers to select exercises from the National Curriculum that would help children to do better at school in their work. As a result of this investment our computer program called ACTION took the results of standardised tests and wrote a prescription or an ACTION PLAN.
Technology has gifted us the means to be able to offer individual and group lessons over the internet. We are able to deliver lessons to children any where in the country.
We use our involvement in Investors in People to help our teachers and their assistants to understand and use our well tried and carefully developed lessons. The results of the lessons are measurable.
