Free literacy support for your child

To help with homeschooling we're offering complimentary literacy support by qualified teachers (no strings attached). We can see the strain and stress homeschooling is putting on so many parents and we just want to help.

It's so important that we continue to read with children to improve their literacy skills and ensure they're on track for their reading age. Literacy skills are required for all subjects and will impact a child's ability to eventually access their exams in the future.

What we're offering: a 40 minute zoom call twice a week with a qualified teacher & a group of students around the same age as your child. The teacher will decide on the book (one that is age appropriate and will stretch your child's vocabulary) and obviously deploy techniques such as questioning for understanding etc. The only thing you will need to get is the book for your child to follow as the teacher reads and the class discusses the content.

If you'd like us to help you out, and you need a 40 minute break a couple of evenings a week then please go to our website to sign up: //

(Please note that we are limited to the numbers of students we can accommodate into one zoom call so this will have to be on a first come first served basis.)
