There is a high demand for Maths and Science tutors on the island to help struggling students, but not enough qualified teachers to provide one-on-one tuition. Thus, G&C Revision Academy was born to ensure that students who needed help would not be turned away.
The company began at St. George’s Preparatory School in St. Peter offering classes on Saturday mornings. However, as of 12 October 2019, they are moving to Beaulieu Convent School instead. The move to Beaulieu provides an easier and more central location to serve the island.
There are bus routes into the town centre and it is only a short walk to the school for students. Classes are an hour-and-a-half and run from 9:00 until 10:30 and 10:40 until 12:10. On offer is a mixture of Maths, Biology and Chemistry for students sitting GCSEs.
Classes also cover all exam board content, regardless of which secondary school they attend, and are bespoke depending on the needs of the students. Class numbers are kept small to ensure that each student is able to spend time with the teacher.
Students who attended have improved their grades in their subjects. Both parents and students have had many positive comments about the impact of the revision sessions.
“My son is finding these revision sessions really useful and the communication has been excellent. Very impressed, so much so that we have booked another course at the request of my son!”
“The revision sessions really made a difference to my daughter’s confidence and resulted in improved grades at GCSE. Thank you G & C.”
In November, the company is again expanding and is going to be offering KS3 Maths and English tuition to the younger students who need extra help.
By offering small revision classes rather than private tuition, parents are able to afford more than one subject. Many private tutors charge anywhere from £40 to £50 an hour per subject. Instead, G&C Revision Academy provides tuition for a full hour-and-a-half for only £30 per session.
