Our English programme helps children aged from 5 to 16 years of age. The key areas of English at Evening School are broken down into 9 areas (below).
All these areas match the national curriculum and build on preparations for tests and exams at every level of the English language.
Engage students with the concept of reading through repeating and reciting. Learners point to and repeat simple familiar words that are both written and shown as vibrant illustrations. This helps them to associate spoken words with their written form. Through practice, they move from repeating after the Instructor to reciting to the Instructor, as they start to memorise and recognise familiar words.
Students learn from repeating and reciting to fluently reading words and short sentences aloud. They begin to trace words and learn letter sounds and how to blend them, all the time increasing their vocabulary. They also start to work on spelling patterns. By the end of their levels, they will be able to read short passages as well as write words independently and neatly. Throughout these levels, students are working to develop a sound study approach.
Our spelling process covers look, learn and practise and the same process is repeated again. We have tailor-made books that help the student’s confidence. During English lessons, students have to grasp with various words. These words are then applied in various contexts that students understand.
Students independently learn the words they need to know for deeper reading, clearer writing, and sharper thinking. Tutors provide you with the helpful insights you need to target your instruction toward the concepts that need more teaching, and the students who need more support.
Students learn to put together simple sentences and understand more about their structure, expressions and punctuation. They build reading speed whilst being able to visualise the contents of the passage they are reading and grasp its meaning. They work on sentence complexity learning how to use the correct word order, verb forms and punctuation and use these skills to answer questions fully.
Students work on grasping the flow of a story, identifying topics and main ideas, using many texts from the Recommended Reading List. In their reading, they learn how to deduce the point of each paragraph and to express their understanding in written form through restatement and description. By the end of their level, they will be able to unravel text and break it down to understand its topic and conclusion.
Summarisation and Critique
Tutors work on the students’ ability to express their own impressions of texts and to understand the sentiments of characters, including variations of mood and action, and how that is expressed. They learn how to summarise text, identifying keywords and their relationship to each other, as well as answering comprehension questions concisely, drawing reasoned conclusions from the information they have read.
Long Writing & Essays
Key stage 3 and GCSEs students are prepared to write longer pieces of writing. This includes planning, structure, content, punctuation and spelling, punctuation and grammar.
At AK Tutoring, all students are prepared rigorously for mock tests and final exams. We use a combination of mock test papers, past exam papers and predicted papers as well as our in house books and worksheets.
