Unsure about whether holistic education or the traditional approach is right for your child? This guide outlines the key differences between the two and how holistic education measures up when it comes to developing your child’s academic ability early.

The key difference is that holistic education nurtures the whole child.

One of our favourite wall resources in our LS Tuition Learning Space is our ‘Feelings Chart’.

Feelings charts give children the opportunity to think about how they feel, and to communicate those feelings to the adults working with them. The development of emotional literacy is key, and feelings charts take this into account whilst supporting children in learning how to analyse and verbally express their emotions.

At LS Tuition, we love finding new and innovative ways to use all the amazing resources at our disposal. One fantastic way in which we have recently started using our Feelings Chart is to support our EAL learners in their comprehension. Many of our EAL (English as an Additional Language) learners often understand their emotions, but do not have English Vocabulary knowledge to support this understanding. By guiding our EAL learners to point to the emotion they wish to describe, we are then able not only to support them in discussing the particular feeling, but subsequently developing their vocabulary around their understanding of Emotional Literacy.


Merry Christmas everyone! From all at LS Tuition!

And with that, LS Tuition is officially closed for the Holiday Season!

We’ve laughed, sang, danced and even scolded our naughty Elsie the elf...all the way to the finish line!

We would like to wish all of our wonderful families a Happy and Healthy Holiday Period.

As always, we simply cannot thank you for the immense amount of love and support we have been given this year to continue doing what we love.

It has been our genuine privilege to work with you all this year, and we cannot wait to welcome you all back in 2024!

Happy Holidays!

Welcome to the Imagination Station!

At the end of each lesson, our students get 5 minutes to pick something to do in the learning space and one of the options is to colour at our Imagination Station!

At LS Tuition we realise how important creativity is for developing young minds and this is why we make sure to incorporate it wherever possible!


Today is World Children’s Day, which is UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children, marking the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

From climate change, education and mental health, to ending racism and discrimination, children and young people are raising their voices on the issues that matter to their generation and calling for adults to create a better future.

This World Children’s Day, it’s more important than ever that the world listens to their ideas and demands.


Anti-Bullying Week 2023 is taking place this week in Scotland, with the theme of ‘Listen Up! (Respect our Rights)’ – because bullying is never acceptable.

Together let’s for and stand up for the rights of children and young people across Scotland to help stop bullying in its tracks.


Wishing you all a lovely World Kindness Day from LS Tuition!

If you carry out a random act of kindness, we'd love to hear about it! Let us know in the comments!

At LS Tuition we know that not all children are the same, why should their lessons be?

At LS Tuition, we love nothing more than celebrating our students and basking in the glow of their incredible successes!

Today we are celebrating the one and only Daniel who recently shared with us that he has been moved up to a more challenging Maths group in school after demonstrating profound progress in his understanding and ability.

We are just so delighted to see Daniel reaching new heights, not only regarding his academics, but also within his confidence and belief in himself as a learner.

Way to go Daniel, keep reaching for the stars!


We are incredibly grateful for this heartfelt testimonial from a parent. To see the growth and success of our students makes us so proud! It is our passion to nurture our students and empower them to thrive. Thank you for placing your trust in LS Tuition! We can’t wait to continue supporting your son's journey!

We'd love to hear how you celebrate Halloween so let us know in the comments below!🕷️

If you ever wonder why schools put so much emphasis on reading at home, it is because reading is the single most impactful literacy task you and your child can partake in, so it’s understandable its tough to choose the right book for your child. 📖

Reading develops your child’s ability to decode words, soak in new vocabulary which they can then transfer to their writing, expand their knowledge of people, places and situations, empathise with a character and consider their own position in the world. Reading is fundamental and a fantastic way to encourage children to engage in their learning in a simple and pressure-free manner. 📚

Here's some tips on how to pick the right book for your child! ✨

A wonderful update from one of our lovely students who has recently received a certificate for their "Outstanding Achievement in Maths".🏆

We are over the moon for you Emma!🌟

It is so important to celebrate children's achievements, and we make sure to do this in every lesson our students attend. In each of our lessons, we set individual targets for our students. Some targets are achieved by the end of the lesson, others may be more long-term over multiple lessons/terms.

In any case, our ethos is to consistently provide an environment for our children to be successful, internalise that they can succeed and flourish holistically. ❤️
