EJO English and Maths offers tuition for all years across KS 1 & 2. English and Maths are core subjects in the curriculum, and are therefore compulsory up to GCSE. KS 1 & 2 enable children to transition from informal to more formal learning.

About KS 1&2 English

English is essential for thinking, learning and interacting in personal, social and work contexts throughout life. Fluency in English is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.

About KS 1&2 Maths

Maths gives children a wider understanding of how the world around them works and prepares them for making decisions, solving problems and processing everyday information.
Whether your child needs a little help to get to where they should be, needs some extra lessons to consolidate or get ahead or needs help with their homework, we can help.
Individual tutoring allows the teacher to really hone in on areas of weakness and provide tailor made lessons for each student. Working one-to-one with a teacher is not something that children have much opportunity to do in their school environment and affords the opportunity to work at the child's pace and on the child's specific needs. After an initial assessment a learning plan will be agreed and lessons will be designed based around this.

Lessons can be online (if you are worried about face-to-face meetings with the teacher) or at our premises in Alton.
All teachers are DBS checked and have completed appropriate safeguarding awareness training.
