We Teach in Your Home

Our tutors will come to your home because this is often the most comfortable place for a child and that comfort is very important to their learning. Maths lessons can be challenging as with other forms of Academic and Music tuition. For most children learning in a familiar environment can be a very positive part of learning. If you feel your home is not suitable then get in touch and we can help find another location.

When teaching 5-7 year old children we work on consolidating many of the areas covered in the early years stages of education. This includes ensuring pupils have a solid grasp of key skills like basic reading, linguistics, counting and number recognition. The best results at this age comes from using games and interactive activities to aid learning, many of these are highly successful new ideas and other are more traditional.

7 to 11 year old pupils need a different approach and we focus very much on creating a stimulating and challenging learning environment that is also enjoyable. This can be achieved in a number of ways and our tutors have many years working with this and other age groups. Often a lesson in a different environment like a garden in the summer can make a big difference to a tough subject. We also focus on ensuring all Key Stage 1 skills are in place and working to improve challenging areas where needed to avoid any issues with falling behind.

"Sheila was my tutor leading up to my entrance exams and SATS. I really like Sheila, she explained things slowly and helped me when I didn't understand things. We always had fun in the lesson too. She helped me to understand fractions which I was really stuck on. I would recommend having Sheila as your tutor because she will help you understand and also have fun too!" - Alicia (Year 6 pupil)

Please note: ALL Discover and Be tutors are DBS/CRB checked; this is renewed on an annual basis.

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!
