  • My son has loved working with his tutors from Spark. They are friendly, consistent and great role-models for my boy. He has improved at school, but the biggest change has been his attitude – he is more driven and focussed on his goals. Highly recommend!

  • My daughter worked with Sarah from Spark Tutoring through her GCSE and A-levels. She would not have achieved the results she did without them. They built a real friendship, and Sarah become a role model through those challenging years. Thank you Spark!

  • My 12 year old daughter worked with an online tutor from Spark Tutoring and it was amazing. I was reluctant at first, knowing how restless my girl can be, but her tutor was engaging and energetic – making the lessons fun. It also made things much easier for my wife and I, having someone else involved to ensure she was meeting all her remote-schooling requirements.

  • Every interaction with Spark was worthy of 5-stars. From the easy booking process to the simplicity of weekly lessons and automated payments, working with them made my life easy and my child happy! What more could a parent ask for?

The Best Tutoring in Folkestone

We believe learning knows no limits as long as there is interest. So, we offer flexible private tutoring online services for all kids from elementary to high school. While this may deprive the learner of physical interaction with the tutor, it comes with multiple other benefits that you should consider. Firstly, with the online service, you don’t need to worry about your child’s location at any time. So, if you need peace of mind and confidence that your child is always safe, the online service is the best option.

All you need for this setup is a computer with access to the internet in a calm, quiet and less destructive room. We understand most parents worry about their children possibly wandering around the internet when unmonitored. To curb this, we have a clear and straightforward manoeuvre website, which is solely controlled by the tutor.

The perfect Tutors in Folkestone for your children

When it comes to giving our learners a personalised experience, here is what guides our curriculum:

Learner Assessment: Before starting the tutoring sessions, it is important to know what your child knows and what they don’t. To clarify this, we give evaluation tests or oral questionnaires. These help us understand their knowledge level.

Depending on their exact grades, we may seek detailed answers using structured exams. This helps the tutor understand the child’s learning style and individual pace better. Sometimes, we’ll ask about their outdoor interests because we desire to create an environment that makes them feel valued and supported.

Customised Lesson Plan: Based on the results of the tests above, we put together an effective lesson plan and timetable that addresses every topic and concept of interest for your child. Extracurricular interests come in when the tutor needs to refresh the learners’ minds. Sometimes, a quick non-academic chat can help refresh without losing focus on the topic at hand.

Regarding our lesson plans, they describe the activities the tutor plans to do and set clear goals to help monitor the learning progress.

Parental Feedback: Before the lesson plan is implemented, we’ll share it with you to get your thoughts and input on anything that needs more attention. Even after the sessions start, we still send weekly reports outlining the immediate steps and status of the tutoring.

Besides keeping parents involved, when needed, we reach out to class teachers. They help monitor and ensure the learner aligns with the set objectives in class. Our system generally is like a tutoring approach that revolves around the parents’ and learner’s interests and preferences.

Our Services

Comprehensive Tutoring

The comprehensive service does more than help solve problems raised by the learner. We give practice tests over time to help identify specific topics where the learner has little knowledge. The tutor then researches and develops fun, engaging activities to help break down such concepts.

From then on, the tutor creates a friendly learning environment where even the most challenging concepts are easy to understand. Typically, comprehensive service involves a step-by-step approach where the learner deals with problems from their roots.

In English, for instance, this service may start with basic sentence structure and grammar comprehension, depending on the student’s challenges. Comprehensive math tutoring is about building a solid problem-solving foundation with aspects like basic arithmetics before progressing to complex topics.

With this service, the tutor will always start with what the learner understands best before introducing the challenging parts.

Exam Preparation

For your child to achieve high scores in their exams, a patient, understanding, and experienced tutor needs to guide them. Whether sitting for their ACT, SAT, GCSE, or any other form of test, our tutors are skilled at helping the learner overcome exam anxiety and stress.

From then on, they will equip them with effective ways to prepare for exams while focusing on important topics that matter. Sometimes, we use mock exams or practice tests to outline the general exam format with a feel for the real exam.

We offer tutoring in Basildon, Bracknell, Harlow, Ashford, Aylesbury, Dartford, Folkestone and across the UK!

With these tips and a guide on time management when sitting for the exams, your child’s confidence will be recharged, setting them up for success.

Homework Help

Homework is an independent study time where the learner practices concepts learnt in school. However, considering classroom distractions and other issues, your child may have doubts about how their homework is done.

This is where a tutor comes in to help replace the doubt with confidence. First the homework gets completed in good time, creating time for the tutor to cover the topics in depth. So, for this, too, the tutor prepares lesson plans for the topic at hand and comes up with common challenging sections of the topic for easier revision.

How it Works

Online Tutoring

Our online services offer your child a safe and convenient study space to join the tutoring from their home.  This reduces travel expenses and saves more time, especially when there’s much to be done within a short time.

With the setup, the learner can have the sessions at their convenience. Whether in the evenings after school or on weekends, you have your say. We also record each session for transparency in the services and the student’s revision.

Additionally, with online tutoring, connecting to our specialised tutors from other zones is easier if you can’t find specialists for specific concepts in your area.

In-person Tutoring

With in-person tutoring, the learner has the tutor physically present with them throughout the sessions. This means better and immediate feedback and the tutor can adjust their approach to suit your child’s needs on the spot. Whether the tutoring is from your home or learning centres in Folkestone, having that face-to-face interaction builds a strong student-tutor rapport, increasing the chances of excelling.

Additionally, in-person tutoring has fewer distractions, better communication, full attention, and an engaging learning experience.

When is a good time to start tutoring?

There is no better time than now! Remember, tutoring is not just for students who are struggling – it is for all students! Even the brightest of students will be driven to achieve their full potential with the support of a Spark Tutor.

We have students of all ages working with our tutors; from early Primary school to A-levels. The best time to start working with a Spark Tutor is todayso book your first lesson in under 3 minutes here.

Does my child really need a tutor?

Every student will benefit from the support of a Spark Tutor, because we offer so much more than just academic support.

Our tutors have been selected for their ability to motivate and inspire the young people they work with. Your child will grow in confidence, do better at school and gain a life-long love of learning.

A Spark Tutor offers more than just help for those struggling at school – they are mentors that will help your child realise their potential.

Does your tutoring follow a set program? What is the lesson structure?

Every lesson we do is tailored around the unique needs of the student. There are no pre-set programs or courses we follow – it is personalised one-on-one learning, targeting exactly what your child needs every week.

Your tutor will have full access to our resource centre – which is packed with thousands of worksheets, textbooks and learning programs. They will use these as they see the need arise in your child.

What ages do you support?

We work with all Primary and Secondary School age students from Reception (Ages 4-5) to A-Levels (Year 13/Ages 17-18).

How do I get started?

Getting started is easy. Book online in under 3 minutes or speak with one of our team members and we will get it all organised from there. We work with our tutors to match your child up with the perfect tutor for them and send you all the details for the first lesson. No payment details are required upfront – we will check in with you after the first session to see how it went and you can submit payment info then!

Are your tutors qualified?

All our tutors go through our unique training and accreditation process and have passed all required reference and child safety checks (DBS) to work with us.

We do not require our tutors to be degree qualified to work with us, and in most cases are younger, University age tutors that excelled in school themselves. We actually find students respond best to this age group of tutors; they can build real authentic relationships and the school curriculum is fresh in the tutor’s mind, creating a mentor-mentee relationship rather than one of authority from a teacher.

How do I track my child’s progress?

You will receive feedback by email after every lesson letting you know what was covered and how your child engaged with the content.

Every ten lessons your tutor will also provide you with a detailed progress report, providing an insight into their development, where they are still struggling and what they are working towards over the next ten lessons. This progress report can also be shared with their classroom teacher or any other family members.

Do you offer any discounts?

We provide a 5% discount for any family that does 2 or more hours of lessons per week. This can be with siblings, multiple subjects or multiple lessons.

How do we find the right tutor?

Getting the match right between student and tutor is so important. When you book, we ask you a number of questions about your child to get a better understanding of both their academic needs and personality. We then match these with one of our tutors that we believe will be a great fit for them.

Obviously, the best test of any tutor is meeting them face to face, which is why your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you don’t think the tutor we have selected for you is the right one for your child, there is no charge and we will work with you closely to find a tutor better suited to them.

Where does the tutoring take place?

Our lessons happen in your home or online in our online classroom, allowing your child to connect with their tutor face-to-face from any device at any time.

How do I pay?

We have the world’s easiest payment system. You simply submit your debit or credit card information once after the first lesson and you are charged 24 hours after each lesson occurs.

We’ll send you a notification shortly after each lesson with the scheduled charge and a receipt 24 hours later after the payment has been processed.

There are no contracts, prepayments or minimum commitments in partnering with us.

Do I have to have lessons every week?

Growth is all about consistency, so we encourage weekly lessons for best results.

However, this is not a requirement in partnering with us. If you need to miss a lesson every now and then, no problem – just let your tutor know at least 24 hours before a scheduled lesson and there will be no charge.

How long do the lessons go for?

Most lessons go for an hour, with many families opting for 90-minute lessons. Ultimately the length of the lesson is up to you – just chat with your tutor and let them know how long you would like to work together.

When can I start?

It usually takes us 2 to 3 business days to get everything lined up, so a good rule of thumb is to book now to get started next week.

We will keep you updated on any potential delays, and of course let you know by SMS and email once we have scheduled the first lesson.

How much does it cost?

Do you offer a free trial or lesson?

Your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you aren’t happy with the tutor we match with your child then there is no charge for the lesson.

This allows you to meet your tutor completely risk-free, but it also means that your tutor gets rewarded for their hard work when they do a great job. It is win-win for all!
