From the outset, our qualified and experienced teachers conduct an independent educational assessment of your child. This is followed up with a confidential discussion between the teacher and parent, providing an opportunity to share any issues that have been identified during the assessment.
Expert assessment and professional guidance
The assessment findings provide us with all the information necessary to develop an individual learning programme. A mix of resources and activities are carefully selected to suit the individual learning style of your child.
We work with children in high teacher: pupil ratio groups (no more than 6 pupils with one teacher and an assistant) and also offer one-to-one tuition where this is considered helpful. Our tutors’ main goals are to improve your child’s confidence and make learning engaging and fun to help all our pupils to reach their full potential. The achievement of goals is praised and this encourages children to work hard and to be self motivated. Our children love attending their weekly sessions and look forward to them.
Bespoke learning programmes
Our enthusiastic and inspiring tutors interact with children throughout the programmes of learning. We do not place your child in front of a computer. Instead, VAKS takes a more personalised approach which is hands on and stimulates your child at every stage.
Real people, real teaching, real learning
All children, from 4 to 18 years, follow an individual learning programme specifically designed to cover all aspects of their developmental needs. This may be a blend of maths, reading, writing, spelling, grammar, science, or verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Children will attend the learning centre on a weekly basis and complete homework that relates to the lesson taught.
Tailored tuition to master learning
Each lesson is recorded, monitored and evaluated by our tutors. They make detailed notes on report cards to provide parents with relevant information, as well as to assess any changes throughout the child’s learning journey. Our assessment during every lesson helps form the learning objectives for the next session. Any specific concerns that a child has relating to learning at school or to problems with homework may also be tracked and targeted.
Seamless teaching and learning
Our relationship with parents is an important factor in delivering success. At the heart of VAKS, is the belief that an effective parent, child and teacher bond is imperative. We are committed to providing excellence in our educational service to parents and children. Your child is our priority from the moment that they arrive in our centre. Termly feedback is given to parents to ensure that they are fully updated and kept informed of their child’s progress.
It’s a team effort
Goals & Achievements
Children are taught how to assess and identify their own learning strengths and weaknesses. These are an active part of the learning process. Achievements are praised and rewarded so that children remain motivated. Tutors inspire, encourage, reassure and model.
