Our Teaching Philosophy
Small Group Learning
We believe children learn best from a combination of interaction with like-minded peers and targeted support from their teachers. At RTC, lessons are tailored to suit the pupil’s learning needs and goals. Our small class sizes ensure your child will have the attention of an inspirational teacher in an excellent working environment. Learning is made to be stimulating and fun, where children are able to take new skills, enthusiasm and confidence back into the school classroom.
Through charismatic teacher-led instruction, we keep our pupils engaged, developing concentration and ensuring a clear understanding of each subject. Pupils develop a passion for their subjects and learn the skills to become independent learners. Our expert tutors encourage children to become curious learners who challenge themselves to go beyond the textbook, building a solid foundation in key skills such as logical thinking and problem solving.
We are specialists in helping children to prepare for exams, from eleven plus and thirteen plus entrance and scholarship, to GCSE and A Level. Our pupils are taught how to apply subject-specific knowledge and exam techniques. This gives them that vital boost towards improving their chances of achieving success in exams and beyond.
A Centre with a Difference
The Right Tuition Company (RTC) provide supplementary learning to children right across the academic spectrum. At RTC, we pride ourselves upon delivering an all-round service that gives parents and children a thorough, rigorous and stimulating approach to education. Understanding how we achieve success is summarised through our ‘Ten Point Difference’:
Classes at RTC are always teacher-led. Through a traditional philosophy of education, our expert, experienced and enthusiastic teachers instil a love of learning where children are encouraged to go beyond the text book in their quest to learn.
2. A personalised approach
Every single parent and pupil start the RTC experience with a meeting with the Centre Director, who will get to know and understand the pupil as an individual; their interests, characteristics and specific aspirations.
3. Introductory assessment and free first lesson
The assessment is a fantastic learning tool which enables all parties to identify quickly areas of relative strength and weakness. The free first lesson offers that all important taster session.
After every class, the teacher will present feedback to parents individually, citing notable achievements, as well as any gaps in knowledge that have been identified. Recommendations will be made for work to be completed prior to the next class.
5. Exclusive learning materials
These materials have been developed over many years and are constantly being revised to fit the ever-changing demands of the national curriculum. They are exclusive to our centre and, therefore, are a key component within the unique experience through which our pupils benefit.
All work is marked thoroughly. A short report on each piece of work is always compiled, outlining areas of excellence, in addition to any areas where improvements can be sought. Striking a balance between building confidence and citing gaps in knowledge is vital to progressive learning.
7. Small groups
As a policy, we make sure class sizes never go above eight. This achieves the most effective blend of collective learning and, moreover, enabling children to receive that essential individual attention from the teacher.
8. Classes with a difference
Alongside our regular classes for English and Maths, the 11+, 13+ entrance and scholarship, GCSE and A Level, we now offer lessons to Primary pupils in Latin and Greek as well as language classes for pupils of all ages in Mandarin, Italian, French and Spanish. We also offer evening adult education classes in English as a foreign language.
9. Regular Workshops
Exciting workshops involving career guidance, music (brass, string and woodwind) and Mandarin. These are a wonderful way of engaging adults and children in new areas of interest.
10. Ofsted Registered
Through being registered by Ofsted, we are able to accept childcare vouchers. We are passionate about extending the colossal benefits of supplementary learning to an ever-wider audience. We wish to be the catalyst for turning a good education into a great education.
