How can we help?
At our Bishop’s Stortford tuition centre, we tutor children aged between 4 and 18 years old. Our expert tuition programmes cover English, maths and science and are designed to help your child achieve their best results in their KS1, KS2, KS3, SATs or GCSEs. We also prepare children for their 4 Plus, 7 Plus, 11 Plus and 13 Plus entrance exams.
You wont find a tuition provider like us, VAKS!
We know that every child is an individual with their own way of learning and we will help your child find their prefered learning style and technique to accelerate their academic growth.
All our tutoring programs are aligned to the National Curriculum and our success rates speak for themselves – at GCSE level our students have never achieved below a C grade (now a grade 4 / 5). At 11 Plus, 100% of our students have achieved a choice from their top three schools around Hertfordshire and London.
Our Bishop’s Stortford tutors
Our team of tutors interact with children throughout the entire learning process. Enthusiastic and inspiring, our tutors do not place your child in front of a computer, preferring a personalised approach which is hands on and designed to stimulate and engage your child at every stage. We use traditional teaching methods with proven results.
Every vaks tutor is enhanced DBS checked. Our Bishop’s Stortford tutors guide your child through our carefully designed learning programmes which are aligned with the national curriculum to ensure the highest level of success is achieved.
You’re in excellent hands 🙌
Our small groups of children are carefully peer matched according to their ability and learning style. This is an effective way to accelerate development as it increases each child’s confidence and provides a learning environment which is very different from the school classroom.
VAKS is often described as a ‘learning club’, where children are individually nurtured and challenged.
