Core Skills Tuition In manchester
Core Skills English
Our Core Skills English programme for Years 8 and 9 has been methodically developed to concentrate on key elements of English Language from the mechanics of technical accuracy to creative analytical and writing skills across a range of examples and texts.
An integral part of these core skills is made up of sentence construction and paragraphs together with reading and writing for a purpose. These topics are explored not only in respect of a student’s own work but in a student’s appreciation and consideration of the work of others which is an important part of their success at GCSE and A Level.
Developing and reinforcing the identification and use of explicit and implicit words and phrases, mindful of the significance of word classes, register and tone together with language techniques is encouraged, increasing confidence and dexterity in key underpinning core skills.
Classes are delivered within dynamic small groups embracing the very best of classroom and workshop environments duly positively contributing to ably equipping students for their academic strides as they progress into Year 10!
Core Skills Mathematics
Our intention in delivering Core Skills Mathematics to students currently in years 8 and 9 is to thoroughly ground the learner in the key concepts and techniques underwriting later study for GCSE and A-level.
Many of the difficulties faced by students in years 10 to 13 when studying maths can be traced back to misunderstandings and a lack of confidence with core concepts and techniques. These form the foundation for the successful study of the subject later.
It is hoped that this course will not only appeal to those students who find the subject perplexing, but also to high – achievers who may be accumulating misconceptions or poor techniques without realising it.
Students will be supported and extended through practice, consolidation and testing. Hopefully students will have the pleasant experience of getting to grips with the subject in our dynamic small group system.
The science GCSE begins in Y9 and we deliver the foundations of all three sciences in small groups. Learning is scaffolded using our revision card system and consolidated using past GCSE questions. Students benefit from the very small group lessons and individual attention this affords. Sometimes the most important skill is learning how to learn and we prioritise this using our revision cards with bulleted key points, key words and diagrams. Students enjoy this introduction to the dynamic, vibrant atmosphere of our centre and many will remain through GCSE and come back even through the sixth form for A level sciences.
