  • Every child matters and is unique - Laura understands that not everyone is a natural learner and that everyone learns at different paces, and from her own experience of learning, has worked exceptionally hard to achieve the position of where she is today. 

  • Concepts explained from beginning to end - Laura and the other tutors often use interactive learning approaches to solidify concepts. In teaching, they very often avoid using large blocks of texts, rather diagrams and visual clips to help portray key concepts. They believe it is fundamental that foundation concepts are well understood before moving onto more complex concepts. 

  • Learning should be fun and interactive - Laura truly believes every child has the ability to achieve their fullest potential, given they are understood and learn in the correct environment. Learning should not be a chore, but enjoyable and interesting. Laura aims to strengthen confidence which often leads to more productive learning.
