Group Tuition

At Brain Train we specialise in providing Tuition for 5-12 year olds in Maths and English, including reading. Our tuition is based on the UK National Curriculum so it really supports children in their school work. We know it works because parents tell us that both they and their child’s teacher notice a definite improvement. More importantly, we hear how children who attend Brain Train develop a real sense of achievement.

As a result, they are more motivated in their school work and gain greater confidence generally.We believe if children have a solid understanding of Maths, English and reading at primary age, it will be of significant benefit to them for rest of their lives. Without this solid grasp, they are likely to struggle at school, fail to reach their full potential and limit their job prospects.

Children Benefit From Constant Hard Work

At school it’s difficult for teachers to give children as much individual attention as they might need. Yet one-to-one tuition can be a bit stressful and intimidating. At Brain Train we offer individual tuition of Maths and English in a group setting that is an ideal environment in which children can learn and improve. We make sure each child can read unaided before they join our library scheme and are able to borrow books on a regular basis.

We don’t believe in gimmicks or games to trick children into learning. We no longer have computers to distract the children and waste their time, just pencils, exercise books and excellent teaching. We simply get the children to work steadily through their individual programmes of work – both in class and at home. The right work, done constantly and thoroughly with help and motivation – that’s how Brain Train tuition helps children with their school Maths and English.

Maths and English Programmes for 5-12 Year Olds

Each child is professionally assessed when they first join Brain Train. This assessment is curently FREE. They are then given a programme that suits their individual ability and their work is constantly monitored to ensure they progress at a rate that’s right for them. We’ve developed our own numeracy and literacy programmes for 5-12 year olds. Based on Key Stage 2, the programmes are packed full of Maths and English exercises for the children to practise until they are ready to move up a level.

We also supplement our original Brain Train Maths and English programmes with material from reputable publishing houses. As a result, Brain Train offers the most comprehensive and successful after-school tuition service for 5-12 year olds in the Harrow area.

Maths and English Homework

We set children both Maths and English homework after every class and mark it all by the end of the next class. We encourage parents to give their children as much guidance with homework as they are able to, encouraging careful completion of all tasks and paying particular attention to the quality of the work.
