Call or message if youโ€™re not sure what your options are but know you would ideally like some help supporting your child to feel ready for the 11+. No obligation to book, Iโ€™ve got a wealth of experience and happy to shine some light on this for any concerned parents. ๐Ÿ˜Š


๐Ÿ’ฌ Did you hear these three words at parents evening and are wondering what more you can do to help? Is your child in need of a little extra support to fill learning gaps and catch up with their peers?

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฐ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฑ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ปOur small team of qualified teachers offer tutoring designed to bridge those learning gaps. Tuition is an investment in your child's experience of learning, helping them build confidence in the areas they need and build a toolkit for learning in a fun and personalised way.

๐Ÿ“† We offer weekly term time sessions and one off or short term blocks of sessions are also an option, depending on availability. If you'd like to boost your child's learning in a specific area reach out and find out your options.

๐Ÿ“žContact us today to schedule a free chat about your child's learning.


๐Ÿ˜ฎWow, it's November already! It was a busy first term and our groups are off to a great start. The students are loving it and that makes me a very happy tutor.๐Ÿ˜

Only 32 more school weeks to go for the year ๐Ÿ‘€ yes that's right- 32!
Prior preparation prevents poor performance, so if you want to protect your sanity and keep your child calm, do not leave it til the last minute! ๐Ÿ˜… If you've been meaning to get a plan in place, we are here to help!

Link to book a call in the comments or direct message me for a helpful chat. There's no obligation to book any tuition and the consultation is free!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘


Not sure if tuition is right for your child? Book in a free 15minute chat and get all your questions answered. ๐Ÿ˜Š We won't recommend it if we don't think it's a good fit but we do promise to provide as much helpful information and advice as we can based on your situation. No obligation to book anything and no hard sell. https://calendly.com/learningwithlaurenandco/15min


Love this message from Sue. So many people think they are stupid or bad at maths but this is simply not true. What happens is they do not have the tools and begin to panic which prevents them from thinking clearly.

Tuition can act like a focused intervention that is a safe space for learners to build their toolkit at their own pace without the comparison of their peers or fear of performing getting in the way of learning. This more relaxed approach can increase their confidence, give them the tools that will see them start to thrive and most importantly believe in themselves. We all want that for our children right? โค๏ธ ๐Ÿคฉ ๐Ÿ™Œ

Iโ€™ve been hearing a lot of feed back from parents about their children turning into sassy teenagers overnight with the start of secondary school. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

It can be so hard to know how to respond in the best way when your child is rude or short with you but I saw this and wanted to share the psychological perspective and give you some encouragement it doesnโ€™t have to be this way.

I find this really helpful to consider why a normally pleasant and polite student might respond in a way Iโ€™m surprised by at the start of term or to remember that they have things going on under the surface I donโ€™t know about. Iโ€™m going to remember this and try to always respond to the need first, dealing with the behaviour has to come later once the need is met otherwise our efforts to support them and communicate better with them will be futile. โค๏ธ

P.s. itโ€™s nearly the weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰

hank you L.R.Knost - Little Hearts/Gentle Parenting Resources for these inspiring words. All behavior is communication. Children communicate the best they can with the limited tool set they have. Our job is to decode the need rather than personalize their behaviour.

Thinking of all the children going into their 11+ this morning. For most, it's their first experience of a formal test and it'll be nerve-wracking.

I'm hoping they can stay calm and focused and while I'm anticipating hearing about how they all found it later, I'm feeling so proud today of all my students who've been committed to self improvement and practice.

Regardless of the outcome of today's test, I have seen you all grow and come so far. It's this attitude to learning and challenge that will take you far in life. Parents, they're a credit to you so please celebrate their efforts with them today! (Or at the weekend when they've recovered๐Ÿ˜‰)


YEAR 4 PARENTS- this is for you. Face to face small groups in Herne Bay. We have just a couple of spaces for Year 4s on Mondays and Thursdays after school.

The earlier you start the easier it will become and the less stressful the year 5 build up will be - starting in year 4 means you identify any problem areas as early as possible. If the test is not the right thing for them you can figure that out sooner rather than later. If they respond well to sessions and enjoy learning then some expert support could boost their weaker areas and set them up to do independent practice on their own by year 5 (saving you money)! You can still get ad hoc support it doesn't have to be a weekly session.

So starting early doesn't have to mean spending more, it means having more information to work with and making an informed decision. Then you can choose what's right for you and your child rather than a last minute cramming of information which doesn't teach them anything that will be of use afterwards.

Reach out if you have questions. ๐Ÿ‘


Whether it's a confidence boost, help with Maths or 11+ guidance you need....message us to find out how we can support you.๐Ÿ˜Š


Come and ask your questions!๐Ÿ˜Š


Come along and join me live this Sunday to ask your Kent test questions. Anything related to the Kent test, what it involves, how to prepare, tuition options, groups, 1:1, anything you like. If you won't be around, pop your question in the comments and make sure I answer for you to watch later ๐Ÿ‘

Please share with anyone this could help! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป


Is the thought of preparing stressing you out? Are you feeling like you need to learn how to tackle all the questions yourself in order to support your child? Maybe you're torn between getting support or doing the best you can on your own?



Make sure your child knows the meaning and method for these 4 words if they are sitting the Kent test in less than 2 weeks! At least one of these is guaranteed to come up on the Maths test and it's super easy if you can remember the difference. Here's a little memory aid for you.๐Ÿ™Œ

We learn lots of tips like these in our weekly sessions. Group and 1:1 spots available, get in touch. ๐Ÿ™‚


Attention parents of year 3,4 and 5 pupils who are looking to take the Kent test.

If your child is โ€˜having a goโ€™ but you havenโ€™t done any prepโ€ฆ get in touch to secure some familiarisation sessions this summer. ๐Ÿš€


Due to siblings moving away, I have two spaces available from after half term. If there's any parents of Year 4/5 children who would like some support with the Kent Test over the coming months, please share this with them or get in touch to see how I can help๐Ÿ˜Š


Did you know we support adults too? If you want to help your child with their Maths and English but lack the confidence we can support you with some ad hoc sessions. You don't have to commit to weekly sessions. We can help you boost your own confidence in just a few sessions which in turn can help your child thrive ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿ˜Š Get in touchโ˜Ž๏ธ

My fabulous co-tutor Suzy has some new availability for 1:1s after the half term BUT there are only two spaces. ๐Ÿ‘€

Qualified teacher and experienced drama director, Suzy can personalise fun and confidence building sessions for your child. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธโญ๏ธ

This could be to cover Kent test material, build up their maths and English skills or work on speaking/performance skills using her drama expertise. ๐ŸŽญ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŒ 

Interactive 1:1 online sessions designed to help your child thrive in and out of school. Parents speak highly of Suzy's rapport, engagement with students and huge confidence growth. Get in touch to find out more. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘Œ


I went for a meal for a friend's birthday at the weekend and the parent of someone I used to tutor was there and said some really lovely things about the sessions I had with her son. It has prompted me to ask that if I have worked with your son or daughter in the last 5 years please don't keep these nice words to yourself. It would mean the world if you could take a minute to share your thoughts on Google Reviews or just on the FB page (or both if you have 2 mins to spare) If you're not sure what to say covering how they found it, why it was helpful or what they liked most etc would be great. Your unique experience is valuable both to me and to parents looking for the right tutor for their child. Many thanks for your support ๐Ÿ™

Diving into some Year 3 maths objectives today. J is a visual learner so weโ€™ve been using a lot of different techniques to explore representing his number knowledge. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

If we can help boost your childโ€™s confidence and number skills get in touch. An hour 1:1 time a week can be a game changer for their confidence and understanding.

I have one space left on a Monday and Suzy has an online slot free on a Wednesday and Thursday.
