The tutor will give the student a file, where he will put all the materials provided by the tutor every week. All lessons are designed according to the National Curriculum. Our tutors use a vast range of learning methods, that are suitable for all types of cognitive profile, so your child will visualize, hear and write the information in order to assimilate it. When teaching the lessons, we use all of these methods, to help him learn according to his needs.

Verbal reasoning tuition for primary 

Verbal reasoning is quite a popular subject required for entry exams. The students are asked to write texts, give synonyms and other exercises. All this tasks are meant to test their level of comprehension and ability to write correctly and to use their imagination. The mission can easily be accomplish if the child is used to the specific type of tests, compositions and if he has a broad vocabulary. The tests are the ones that he is going to practice with his tutor but he should read a book from time to time, in order to improve his vocabulary and stimulate his imagination.
