Services Offered

Tests and Exams

Key Stage 2

Fireside English Tutoring specialises in tutoring learners in preparation for whatever tests and exams they may undertake during their formal education.
This starts prior to secondary education and covers the following:

  • Specific school entrance exams, such as the Eleven Plus
  • National Curriculum SATs at age 10-11 (school year 6)

Key Stage 3

During secondary education, Fireside English Tutoring assists with the engagement and ongoing progression of learners throughout Key Stage 3 (School years 7,8 and 9) along with preparation for any teacher assessments during this time.

While there are fewer exams during this time, it is perhaps the most essential period for learners as it provides many of the building blocks needed for GCSE.
Writing skills are being developed, including the range of vocabulary and punctuation as well as tone.
Likewise, skills of analysis and inference when reading texts also develop.

In order to harness this, Fireside English Tutoring will identify individual learner needs and enable the growth and strengthening of these skills.
