Our aim is to help students to develop their potential, specifically in the context of helping them to secure the best education commensurate with their abilities. Our mentors act as sources of support to a child outside the family and provide a guiding and directive role in a child’s development. Throughout life, curiosity, confidence and spark are all highly valued. Our mentors work hard to foster these characteristics and to help your child enjoy their time in education.
Children are wonderfully diverse and the way they learn best differs case by case. As such, pairing each child with a mentor is a thoughtful and methodical process and one that requires diligence and sensitivity. The key is the fit: to find a mentor that works with your child as an impartial yet fully engaged part of their education. Once your child looks forward to their time spent with a mentor, the toughest barrier is broken and both independence and enjoyment can be found in their sessions together.
The services of our mentors include:
Setting detailed academic goals
Our mentors work with their students to outline measurable and achievable academic aims.
- Providing academic support through private tuition
Tutoring is a key facet of mentoring to support the good work that schools do.
- Interpreting and summarising school reports
Our mentors mediate between schools and families making sure that the key components of school reports are clearly understood.
- Delivering regular feedback on progress
Our commitment to each child ensures that feedback is constant and relevant to work at school.
- Facilitating important subject choices for GCSEs, A-Levels and IB
The range of options is vast and can seem a daunting task to manage. Our long-term approach ably supports our students’ choices.
- Liaising with schools on behalf of parents
Where needed, we work as a bridge between families and schools to ensure an open and workable relationship.
- Assisting with extra-curricula programmes
Our support extends beyond academic help to ensure a well-rounded education and a breadth to learning.
- Managing and resolving any personal concern of the child
We work in some ways as an impartial elder sibling ready to listen and act upon any concerns.
