Does my child need to bring learning materials each week?

Most resources will be provided, but we ask that each student brings:

  • a folder with rings in which to store their Firefly work

  • highlighters/pens

  • blank notecards

 

The folder will be an invaluable revision resource as it will be full of example questions, model responses, past papers, guides on how to tackle each question, key terms, revision cards and much more.

If I book a package for my child, am I tied in even if our circumstances change?

We ask for payment at the beginning of each month, but if your circumstances change and you want to cease the tuition, you're not tied in if you have chosen the Firefly Monthly option.  We do not offer partial month refunds but will work with you to swap classes so that your child can continue to access tuition if possible.

 

If the Ultimate booking has been chosen, we ask for your request to finish tuition in writing and can cease payment to coincide with the nearest half term end.

I’m not really sure which option to book for my child…

If you know that your child would benefit from our small-group tutoring sessions, but you’re not sure what they need, don’t worry! We realise how confusing GCSE learning can seem and we are here to help. We offer assessments, phone conversations and free student drop-in sessions to help everyone really understand what’s needed so we can figure out exactly the right solution for your child. We are happy to plan a way forward together with you.  

Are my child’s SEN needs considered in the planning of the sessions?

Yes. If your child has any additional needs, get in touch with us for an informal chat.  We treat students with additional learning needs on a case-by-case basis and will discuss with you how best to proceed, what we can offer and what we can put in place to support your son or daughter.

How does payment work?

We accept tution bookings for a minimum of a month at a time although free trial sessions are encouraged.  If the student is starting part-way through a month, the fee would be  the number of weeks remaining in the month times the package rate chosen.

Can you offer 1-1 tuition?

If you would like one-to-one tuition, we can arrange this with one of our highly skilled tutors.  These would take place in your home and will be at a price of £38 per hour to cover travel costs as well as the tuition and is subject to tutor availability.

Do you only offer GCSE English & English Literature?

Currently, we are able to offer only GCSE English Language and Literature, but we hope in the near future to be able to offer affordable tuition options for A-Levels and for other core subjects at both GCSE and A-Level.  If you'd be interested in these areas, drop us a quick sentence or two and your contact details here by clicking on the button below so we can contact you when those classes are available for booking.
