The Thrive Approach
What is The Thrive Approach?
The Thrive Approach is a specific way of working with all children and young people that helps to develop their social and emotional wellbeing, enabling them to engage with life and learning.
How Does it Work?
Our licensed Thrive Practitioners use the Thrive-Online tool. Thrive-Online enables practitioners to gather and apply data relating to an individuals social and emotional development.
What Does Tuition Extra Do?
We create individual detailed action plans, with a raft of strategies and age-appropriate activities included in lessons that will support social and emotional development – building resilience.
How our Tutors utilise Thrive
100% of students on the Tuition Extra Thrive Approach course progress socially and emotionally, resulting in reparative resilience.
Teaching and training our staff in utilising The Thrive Approach is paramount to improving student engagement. Meeting unmet needs is paramount to children and young people flourishing academically and becoming confident individuals. The Thrive Approach has been developed in such a way that all students can achieve their full potential!

How we incorporate The Thrive Approach!
The Thrive Approach
By focusing kinaesthetic activities, our Thrive Approach Practitioners play side-by-side with our young people. Children and young people have the freedom to explore, experiment, and through sensory stimulation, which is fantastic for the brain and memory development, and motor skills.
Play encourages communication and turn-taking; there is no right or wrong way to play, and the Thrive Approach ensures vulnerable or distressed children feel safe and able to engage with learning.
These activities range from horse riding, bush-craft activities at our Ancient Woodland to mixing beats in the Recording Studio, creating unique hairstyles in the Tuition Extra Salon or cooking u in our Catering Suite & horse-care at our farm!

What else can Tuition Extra do? Wellbeing Animals!
The thrive approach
The neuroscience of linking social and emotional needs with animals! At Tuition Extra, we have a range of wellbeing dogs, big and small, available for in-office tuition and at our other sites – Ancient Woodland.
Animals are non-judgmental and calm the anxious brain. Hugging a dog releases dopamine. Calming and neutralising stress chemical called cortisol (fight, flight and freeze). Our children and young people can join us in this state. Working with animals releases serotonin (oxytocin), the feel-good chemicals making us calm and happy.
Simply being with animals regulates and lowers our student’s heart rate and stress hormones – improving social interaction, bonding, trust and attachment. Furthermore, decreasing aggression and increasing generosity – Oxytocin, linked with animals, makes us feel happy!
