From Early Years to Year 8

In our bespoke literacy and English tutoring sessions, we develop skills, confidence and independence in reading, writing, phonics and GPS, through the use of games, creative learning and fun resources. We love to utilise different spaces and enjoy outside learning too!  Tutoring sessions can be focused on one particular area of Literacy or on general Literacy skills, depending on your child’s needs. We believe that securing phonetic knowledge is of the utmost importance in literacy; therefore we use phonics as the cornerstone of our literacy and English teaching, both in reading and writing.

Parent / Carer Involvement

We encourage you, the parent / carer, to be involved in the teaching and learning process wherever possible, so that you feel confident in supporting your child as he or she learns.

Whether your child could do with a confidence boost in the lead up to SATS tests, needs help preparing for Common Entrance Exams, is looking for support in a particular area of the curriculum or would benefit from guidance in tackling weekly homework, we are here and happy to help!

 “My daughter’s confidence has grown so much, since starting weekly tutoring sessions with Discover and Be, that she has won herself a place in a Children’s Poetry Anthology “Sense Poetry - Amazing Sensations” to be sent to The British Library and other libraries throughout the UK and Ireland. Helped by Sheila’s wealth of experience, gentle approach and dynamic teaching my daughter was encouraged to explore poetry through the senses and has created a wonderful poem to grace the shelves of readers for years to come. Thank you Discover and Be! We are extremely proud!”
