"He sat at the table in silence, his head bowed over. The poor lad looked terrified. He was young, maybe about 6 years old. I introduced myself and showed him the different games I had taken along with me. Every game designed to help him build a love and better understanding of maths and English. By the following week, he came running to the door when I knocked. By week 3, he was sitting on the doorstep waiting for me".

Have you got a passion for helping children to succeed?

We recently had the opportunity to interview Dawn Strachan and found out about her unique children's tuition franchise where not only every child is treated as an individual, but every franchisee is too.

Here's what she had to say about what qualities make an ideal Clara James Tutoring franchisee:

"A franchisee needs to be willing to listen to the child and adapt to that child’s needs. A franchisee needs to be motivated and ambitious. Building a business isn’t easy but it’s rewarding and so satisfying. They need to recognise that every person that gets in touch is someone they can help and not just someone who can help them reach their bottom line. Tutoring needs to be a passion as well as a business."

Their caring ethos of seeing the individual extends to everyone they work with. Could joining the Clara James Tutoring team be right for you?

Back at the beginning of the summer I saw a post asking for ideas on how someone could support their son with reading and comprehension. This was a post I created as a consequence. How do you encourage your child to read?

One of my favourite games we use

Keeping students focused and motivated can be a difficult task.
That’s why at Clara James we use a wide range of resources that suit the student and follow their individual needs rather than the prescribed curriculum.

In fact, playing games with students has got me more work!

One of my favourite ways to teach Timetables is by playing noughts and crosses. It’s a game I can easily recommend to parents as well. It can also be easily adapted.

Draw a noughts & crosses grid on a piece of paper. 2 vertical lines crossed with 2 horizontal lines. In each section of the grid write a number. Pick the times table you want to practice. Then, like in the conventional game the goal is to get a line of 3 before your opponent does. The only difference in this game is before you can claim your square you need to multiply the number written there by your chosen times table.

Simple!
This game can be adapted to use with grammatical terminology, any other maths questions, spellings, the list goes on…

Adapted to the abilities of the child, it’s proved to be really popular with students aged 4 to 16. So much so, they often don’t want to stop playing it. It’s also a really quick time filler if you have a couple of minutes at the end of the lesson.

Do you play games with your students? Which game is always a hit?

Quick question:

If I was to offer a package where I would help you build your tutoring business on a 1:1 basis, is this something you would be interested in?

I talk to so many parents who are worried about confusing their child if they explain it differently to how school explains it.

I try to tell them that often we need to hear a different explanation to understand it.

Many years ago, when I was doing my GCSE’s, I can remember a maths lesson where we were either solving or rearranging equations. The teacher explained it to the class then turned to me for an answer. I hadn’t got a clue. She explained it again in the same way and once again asked me for the answer. I was still none the wiser. What she had said made no sense the first time around and repeating herself hadn’t made any more sense the second time around.

This time when I hadn’t been able to answer she just rolled her eyes and moved on.
I felt stupid. As a child you feel as if everyone else knows the answer and I was the only one who didn’t. I couldn’t have felt less confident, as if I didn’t belong any less if I had tried.

That evening, I went home and spoke to dad about what had happened. He wasn’t a teacher. He was an accountant, but he sat me down and explained it by stating we had a set of scales. We are starting with this in this side and that in that. Our goal is to move everything apart from this across to the other side, but it has to stay balanced so if we add something to this side, we have to do the same to the other side and vice versa.

This made perfect sense. I got it. He explained it once but differently and it seemed like such a logical process. After that algebra and rearranging/ solving equations became one of my favourite aspects of maths.

The reason why? My dad explained it differently.

So, never be afraid of explaining something differently, often that’s what our child needs. Someone to approach it from a different angle.

This summer I have had 3 of the students I used to work with, helping me to create resources for future students to use. They have been fantastic. Abigail has just created this one for me, Matthew is creating "how to" sheets for various aspects of maths revision, Aditi is working on English Lit. Thank you all for all the amazing resources you have created so far, I really appreciate the effort you have been putting into it

11/08/2022

How long does it take for you to find all 10? Some are quite obvious but I think others are quite well hidden!

I'm putting together the resources for this month's bundle and thought this might be a bit of fun. When you find all 10 why not gives us a like and share it with your friends!
Good luck x

These are 2 incredible ladies. I interviewed several and it was a hard decision but I am 100% sure I can recommend them both with confidence. Welcome to you both!

We’ve hired!
So pleased to announce that Clara James Tutoring has welcomed two amazing new tutors to the team, Belladonna and Pirun.

Belladonna will tutor maths and English to secondary school students to the end of GCSE

School's out for summer!
For some September brings a whole new start. I hope you enjoy every second of it.
Is there anything you would like help with extra understanding over the summer months? x

15/07/2022

Love this idea x

Feeling hot, hot, HOT 🥵 Teachers I know that you are trying to get your children to concentrate through their last few lessons of the school year in this heat, as am I… ☀️ So before you put back your classroom drawers after their end of the year clear out, fill them with water 💦 and place them underneath the children’s desks to create your very own school 'spa day' 😂 Children’s feet 👣 have lots of particularly sensitive pulse points that give their bodies an instant cool down when dipped in water 💦… 6 year olds willingly working at their desks, plus some very clean drawers to finish the week. What’s not to love ❤️😂

If you're looking for help with comprehension, this might help? https://clarajamestutoring.co.uk/how-can-i-support-my-child-with-reading-comprehension/

I recently saw a Facebook post asking for help with reading and comprehension.

Her son’s school had said that he needed to make more of an effort with reading and it was her responsibility over the summer holidays to help him. Did anyone have any ideas on how she could do this?

Since the business was started, we’ve being playing a game I call the dotty board game. On a piece of paper draw 18 dots. These need to be divided into 3 different colours. So, for example, there might be 6 red dots, 6 yellow dots and 6 blue dots.

04/07/2022

Couldn't agree more!

24/06/2022

We're doing it again!

Last year we ran an 8 week program to support those doing the 11+ in September, The goal of the program is to compliment the past papers that can be downloaded for free online.
As you work through these papers you will probably find areas your child is less confident with.
Our program is designed to fill in the gaps.
Each week there will be a new set of resources uploaded including a set of vocabulary word games to compliment the knowledge required.
In addition there is a Facebook group for you to join to ask questions.
There will also be weekly zoom call where you can ask me any questions you like associated with the 11+.

Once again this will be free to anyone we already tutor through Clara James.
Otherwise, it will be just £27.

If you have any questions, or you want to join us, DM me and I will get back to you just as soon as I can.

Have a great weekend x

What makes Clara James Tutoring different to other tutoring businesses? 22/06/2022

What makes Clara James Tutoring different to other tutoring businesses?

The other day I was asked what it was that made us stand out amongst other tutors. I think it goes back to when I started out in education. Working with early years children and then children with different learning styles, taught me that children had to be engaged. They had to feel confident and a variety of resources needed to be used.

The logic behind that is presented in this video, but further more, one of the key questions we always ask ourselves is: "If I was looking for a tutor for my own child, what would I expect?"

Every person who gets in touch is someone we can help. Not just someone who can help us make more money. We try to see every person as an individual and adapt each lesson accordingly.

If you have questions about how we do things, if you're looking to become a tutor. If you want a tutor, get in touch and we will always do our best to help

4. How would they structure the lessons?
5. Are you tied into a contract?
6. Is there an upfront fee?
7. Do you do an initial assessment?
