Who We Are
Edukate is a private tutoring business based in Waterloo, Liverpool, run by myself, an experienced tutor and First class graduate in Education Studies. I have tutored primary aged children for the past 4 years, supporting children of all ages and abilities to achieve their full potential. It was from this experience that my passion for tutoring grew, as I began to see the impact just a small amount of tuition can have on a child’s confidence, ability and approach to learning. I wanted to create a tutoring business which focuses on the long-term wellbeing of its students, creating a positive environment in which all learning is appreciated and supported.
Why We Do It
We see education as a powerful tool for change; to change a student’s perceptions of their own capabilities, to change the way in which they perceive the world around them, to change a student’s future and enable them to make a positive change within society. Our aim is for students to become confident, critical, independent thinkers who have the resilience to overcome barriers, face challenges and thrive within all aspects of their education and beyond.
How We Do It
Sessions at Edukate follow the national curriculum and complement children’s formal learning.
We use a small group approach of no more than 6 students to allow for cooperative and collaborative learning. We encourage deep and meaningful discussions amongst students so as they can express their views and become active participants in their own learning.
We recognise that all students are unique and therefore tailor our sessions to suit student’s individual learning needs and goals. Typically, this consists of building upon student’s prior knowledge, before moving onto more complex concepts.
We regularly assess our students, monitor their progress and encourage them to reflect on their own learning.
Most importantly, we aim to a provide safe and enjoyable environment where children can build their confidence and enthusiasm for learning, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
We welcome you and your child to attend our centre for a free initial assessment in line within the current National curriculum.
We will discuss the outcome of your child’s assessment and your expectations of tuition to recommend an appropriate service which will meet your child’s individual learning needs and goals.
Booking Your Sessions
Once you are happy, we can arrange a suitable time and group for your child to attend on a weekly basis. Upon registration, we will require a deposit and the first month pro rota, please see our fees for more information.
Private Tuition for KS1, KS2, 11 plus in Waterloo, Liverpool
Key Stage 1
KS1 and reception are an exciting time for children as they begin their journey through formal education. We recognise the importance of children’s initial experiences at school in shaping their future attitudes towards learning. We want children to be enthused about learning and have a positive approach towards their future studies. We ensure the sessions for this age group are always fun, engaging and creative, with plenty of encouragement and support to build their confidence in the classroom. We can cover areas such as; phonics, handwriting, spelling and numeracy, dependent on your child’s needs.
Key Stage 2
At KS2 level it’s imperative that children have a good understanding of basic numeracy and literacy skills before moving onto more complex concepts. We use a range of resources and interactive activities for those who may require extra support in mastering these skills. Alternatively, for those who may wish to extend their learning, sessions at this level can also be challenging, as we encourage children to become more critical and explore concepts at greater depth.
11+ preparation focuses on the core subjects of English and Maths, alongside verbal and non-verbal reasoning, dependent on the exams your child will be sitting. Sessions at this level will be focused primarily on working beyond the child’s school year to ensure that all relevant concepts and exam technique are covered prior to the exam at the beginning of year six. To adequately prepare your child we advise on starting tuition at the beginning of year 5, although this is not essential. If you would like further advice on the 11+ entrance examinations for the schools in your area, please do not hesitate to contact us.
