Welcome to Cardiff & Vale Tutors. We have experienced Primary tutors who can support your child through the all the important key stages.
Are you looking for a Primary tutor in Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan?
Primary tuition can help consolidate learning in a number of ways. The Primary education curriculum has undergone a lot of changes over recent years. It aims to ensure children have an education which enables and encourages them to develop skills for their future lives – for both working and living.
Keeping up with the curriculum
Additional tuition by a Cardiff & Vale tutor can sometimes be sought for primary students who struggle with certain aspects of the syllabus and can feel ‘left behind’ in the context of larger classes and a fast-paced curriculum content. Being able to offer tailor-made one to one support can improve academic performance but also, as importantly, build confidence and enthusiasm for certain subject areas. Unlike in primary classroom settings, primary tutors can specifically personalise tutorials to the student’s preferred learning styles to help them to catch up. Alternatively they can also look at more advanced topics if pupils have a keen desire to learn over and above what is being taught in school.
Identifying Specific Educational Needs
Specific Educational needs, such as dyslexia and dyscalculia, can often become apparent as pupils work their way through Primary education. These are best identified early on to ensure that the correct support can be put in place. Screening can be carried out by specially trained teachers or by Educational Psychologists. If you know your child has a specific learning difficulty, it is a good idea to mention this at the point of requesting tuition with us to maximise the chances of finding a suitable tutor match.
At Cardiff & Vale Tutors we believe Primary numeracy and literacy is very important.
Being numerate means having the confidence and skill to use numbers and mathematical approaches in all aspects of life – at work, in practical everyday activities at home and beyond, as consumers, in managing our finances, as parents helping our children learn, as patients making sense of health information, as citizens understanding the world about us.
Numeracy complements literacy and is sometimes called ‘mathematical literacy’. Both skills are needed in order to function fully in modern life.
Being numerate means being able to reason with numbers and other mathematical concepts and to apply these in a range of contexts and to solve a variety of problems. Being numerate is as much about thinking and reasoning logically as about ‘doing sums’.
It means being able to:
- Interpret data, charts and diagrams
- Process information
- Solve problems
- Check answers
- Understand and explain solutions
- Make decisions based on logical thinking and reasoning.
Numeracy involves skills that are sometimes not adequately learnt in the classroom – the ability to use numbers and solve problems in real life. Cardiff & Vale Tutors can help provide a fully qualified local Primary Tutor who can develop these important skills of numeracy and literacy.
