Our team of friendly, qualified and experienced teachers believe that happy and appreciated students are the best learners. We aim to build self-esteem and raise self-confidence in our students through improving their academic abilities.
At Redwood Scholars we provide individual English and Maths tuition in groups of no more than 5 students per tutor; 6 students in case of classes for home schooled children and 10 students in Montessori workshops.
Each Individual English and Maths tuition session lasts one hour and twenty minutes and is divided into a number of carefully selected activities. During their time in the centre, each student follows an individual programme based on the results of the initial assessment. Our tutoring sessions are run in the afternoons throughout the year.
Our English and Maths classes for home schooled children are organised in age relevant groups and students attend them twice a week in the morning for three hours, term time only. Small groups assure the best results and academic progress as well as enabling students to interact with the their peers in a safe classroom environment.
Montessori workshops are aimed at young learner of preschool age (3 to 5 years old) who attend our centre twice a week for 2 and a half hours in the morning. We aim to stimulate their development and instil curiosity for learning using well-proved Montessori method and carefully designed learning aids and resources.
We aim to teach each child in the way that suits them best: some children learn by doing and may benefit from educational puzzles, some love technology and are highly motivated by using online resources, some love paper and pencil. As a rule, we deliver each individual programme as a mixture of various teaching methods to achieve the best academic outcome. All children love praise and reward, and we ensure that our students work in a positive learning environment where their work is valued and they are given lots of encouragement. At the same time, we do not approve of or accept lack of effort if it is solely due to being laid back and careless. Many parents comment on how much their child's confidence and self-awareness has improved since they started attending our centre.
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
