Why choose Vaks?
Vaks is often described by parents and children as a ‘learning club’, where students are individually enriched and challenged.
Whether your child is flying through school or finding it difficult to keep up, we’ll be there to build their confidence and enthusiasm, ensuring we deliver academic success for your child.
Our experienced, handpicked tutors are trained in the Vaks method so that they can inspire, encourage and motivate every student to unlock their potential.
Our student success rates speak for themselves, with – to date – 100% of our children who sit entrance exams receiving an offer from at least two of their chosen school choices in Hertfordshire or London. At 11 plus we offer a three term transformational programme which we pledge will deliver success for your child above and beyond the examination day itself.
The Vaks tutoring method
Whatever learning stage your child is at and whatever learning style they prefer, our interactive teaching methods will transform your child’s learning. We begin the process with an educational assessment which is free of charge. This takes approximately one hour and is carefully designed to give a detailed insight into your child’s strengths and weakness. After the assessment, we offer parents detailed feedback with our recommendations for how to make improvements and set goals to develop their child as a learner.
We offer expert tuition for every learning stage, subject and ability via our unique tutoring method which incorporates:
learning through seeing
learning through listening
learning through moving, doing and touching
Our tailored tutoring approach means we are able to support children of all abilities and every learning stage.
We tutor in small groups, with each group peer matched according to their ability This is an effective way of accelerating learning development which increases each child’s confidence and delivers results.
