How we raise grades
Here at Chellaston Tutoring, our friendly and experienced team of fully qualified and DBS checked teachers will grow successful learners. We will identify children’s weaknesses that form obstacles to learning and generate effective strategies to overcome these. Our approach, in turn, can aid in growing confidence, strengthening academic performance and overcoming ‘exam nerves’ and ‘classroom anxiety’ faced by many children in the conventional classroom today.
Our wide variety of resources, tools and techniques reflect effective practices and the current requirements of the demanding and changing curriculum, grading procedures and examinations.
Many children fear ridicule from their peers in light of “silly questions” and “wrong answers”. Many children harbour the misconception that they shouldn’t ask the teachers for help or appear less able in front of their friends. At Chellaston Tutoring, we concentrate on developing confidence, building self-esteem and raising academic achievement, as per our philosophy.
I hated it when I was chosen to answer the teacher’s question. I always tried to look away or sit further back to avoid this. I was always scared of being embarrassed and saying something wrong or silly in front of everyone in my class. But now I am usually the first one with my hand up. I like when I’m picked as I know the answer or want to give it at least a try.

At Chellaston Tutoring children’s learning takes place with 1:1 or 1:2 tuition for 70 minutes, unlike other tutors who may not be qualified teachers and only offer 60 minutes. We deliver extensive 1:1 time with activities that reflect student’s topics in the classroom, with results they will be able to notice quickly. We monitor and track the children and their progress constantly to scaffold their learning.
Working in pairs, we motivate and encourage learners to ask questions, participating in an educational dialogue between their peers and adults alike, learn from their mistakes and strengthen their communication and social skills. We wish to build their skills in both confidence and articulation of their ideas. Here at Chellaston Tutoring, we encourage children to be independent learners and overcome their academic weaknesses to reach their goals and overcome any academic challenges they face.
These activities allow learners to practice their newly equipped academic skill set, and their progress will be evident in school through their confidence and results. We aim to make sure your child doesn’t fall behind but instead achieves their true potential.
Scared with the ever-growing class sizes and the shrinking 1:1 attention your child receives in school?
