Online English sessions

Today we are launching the first of our small group online tuition sessions. Aimed primarily, but not exclusively at home educated children, the sessions will run via Skype and Google docs and cover a variety of English skills.

The first set of sessions will look at analysis; how to analyse a variety of texts; the point of analysis, both for examination and in real life; and how to write analytic texts. These sessions will not be aimed at any particular exam board or specification, but will give children an overview of the skills, theory, practice and purpose of analysis.

The sessions will run at four levels based on stage rather than age. Level one will be introductory, aimed at KS3 children; level two will be intermediate, aimed at KS4 children; level three will be advanced, aimed at KS5 children. I am also considering running a separate session for parents to enable them to help their HE children at this level, if there is a demand.

Each session will run as stand alone, so you can sign your child up to individual sessions or to the whole course.  The sessions will cost £7 per session or £6 per session if you sign up and pay for 6 in advance.  Each session will include pre-session resources and activities, an hour’s Skype session and a post session ‘homework’ which will be annotated and returned to your child.

If you are interested in finding out more about these sessions, email us at or contact us.  If you would like to keep up to date with future courses, don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter – don’t worry, it doesn’t come out unless we have something new to tell you, so it won’t clog up your inbox!

      The dates haven’t been set yet, as this is a new idea and I wanted to gauge interest. I have sent you an email with the details and a link to a survey where you can register your interest and preferences. I hope that helps. Ruth
