To provide affordable private tuition that is enjoyable to participate in, enables students to make progress, and increases confidence.

New stretch target

To purchase more resources for higher-level courses and to be able to extend to day-time lessons too. I would also be able to open a second classroom in a different area/more central.

As public funding cuts continue, the private tuition industry grows. However, the services available can be expensive and therefore unreachable for all. There are many students out there, young and mature who are struggling to cope with a subject/subjects that they lack confidence in and grow to fear as time goes by. With children being tested as young as 5 years old, parents are becoming more reliant on the tuition industry to prepare their children for the future.

I feel there is a gap in the market for affordable private tuition delivered by qualified teachers in an environment that stimulates students, building confidence and minimising fears. I believe that education should be enjoyable and taught in a way that meets the student’s learning needs rather than expecting the student to adapt to a one-size-fits-all education.

My tuition business uses a variety of learning styles to support all students. Hands-on resources and games are used to engage students, with personalised lessons planned for each student based on their individual gaps and areas for improvement. I replicate the school environment in a fully-equipped classroom and I offer one-to-one, online and small group tuition (of up to 6 students per adult). My focus is not just results-driven, but also to promote a love of learning and building confidence in a safe environment.

The money raised would enable me to grow as a brand through a marketing campaign on social media, flyer-drops and advertising publications. It would also enable me to grow my resources. Those that have visited the classroom have all expressed positive comments and the students have thoroughly enjoyed their lessons, demonstrating progress from day 1. The difficulties faced so far have been in growing the brand, letting people know my business exists.

In the future, I would like to offer more subjects and perhaps classes for parents, daytime classes for children who are home-schooled and one-off classes for single topics and exam revision.
