“More Than Simply Tutoring”
Our ancient woodland provides opportunities for students to explore an expansive curriculum that develops resilience through imaginative creativity, supported teamwork, peer interaction and 1-2-1 activities. Students have time to explore their thoughts, feelings and relationships whilst learning and developing new skills in a kinaesthetic and hands-on way. Sessions are pitched appropriately to inspire challenge and confidence. We inspire a relevant and meaningful connection to the natural world and help our students gain an understanding of their place within it.
“Tuition Extra provides a truly bespoke service to children and young people who may have struggled to access mainstream education. By recognising the individual needs of each child or young person, the team are achieving amazing results and are supporting young people to re-engage with education and with life. Ruth and her colleagues richly-deserve this award and it is inspirational to hear about the work they are doing for young people’s mental wellbeing.”
Mel Fisher, Thrive’s Relationship Manager for the South East, East and London. Read more.
Meeting Emotional Needs
Thrive is a developmental and trauma-sensitive approach, informed by recognised neuroscience, and child development theory. Tuition Extra’s personalised and flexible approach encompasses the therapeutic provision alongside education.
Home, Online & On-site
We work with educational institutions throughout Kent to support children and young people in and out of school. Together we work successfully in schools, in-home environments, community spaces, online, and on site.
Our Canterbury site hosts a Recording Studio, Media suite, Construction, Woodwork, Mechanics’, Catering suite and Sensory Room. Our Ancient Woodland site enables learners to flourish in the excitement of learning outdoors among nature.
We believe Tuition Extra must have changed the lives of so many children for the better , thinking about the end result - not only the glory of data.
