will my child have a designated tutor
The tutor-student relationship is absolutely crucial for effective learning. We match tutors with learners based on character, rather than calendar. That said, we may need to tweak things from time to time due to circumstances outside of our control.
how long does each session last?
We believe that the optimum time for learning is 80 minutes. Once greeted, settled; homework marked and new targets set. With good quality explanation and practice answering various concepts or activities for skill development, each session finishing with feedback for parents and (a little) homwork. We think that cramming all this goodness into an hour is a rush, we don't like rushing!
Where are they taught?
At our dedicated and secure learning centres. The advantage of having a STC HQ is that all of our resources (computers, revision guides, stationary etc.) are available for our tutors at the blink of an eye. Also, no distractions from ipads, Xboxes or Snapchat!
How much do lessons cost and how do i pay?
We charge £110 per month for one session per week term time only. We take this payment securely using our Direct Debit system (GoCardless) on the 1st of the month in advance.
am i tied into a contract?
Definitely not. We’re confident enough in our abilities not to have to tie people into a contract. If your circumstances change, you should be free to leave with minimum fuss. We’re positive you won’t, though!
what happens if my child misses a session?
If your child misses a session that they had scheduled with us, we still ask for payment. This is because we have already invested time and resources in creating the perfect session. Don’t worry though, as long as you let us more than 24 hours beforehand, we’ll arrange a free catch-up session at a time that suits everyone. It may not be with the same tutor, but it will be to the same high standard.
