The Grade Booster Revision Week

The Grade Booster Revision Week

It’s Back! The Grade Booster Revision Week

Monday 26th October to Friday 30th October 2020

Our celebrated and highly successful Grade Booster Revision tuition provides effective targeted support for any student preparing to sit or resit their maths or English Language GCSE in November.

The Grade Booster is also used by ambitious year 11 students preparing for GCSE Mock Exams providing extra support and structure to reinforce existing skills and to fill in any gaps as they build confidence in the lead up to exam success.

The proven success of our Grade Booster revision tuition has built up over the 8 years of we have run them, we are continually making improvements and refinements. We run Grade Booster Courses at key points throughout the year: October half term, Easter and the May Half Term holidays. Grade Booster Revision has helped many students to achieve levels above those predicted by their classroom teacher; we not only focus on students at levels 4 and 5 but also help students wanting to aim for the highest grades.

The effectiveness of our Grade Booster revision is largely due to our tutors who are all experienced and successful classroom teachers, many of them Head of Departments and Exam board examiners  working most effectively with small groups of students. The tutors know the key topics and skills required for success in exams and can tailor the support to each student individually, building up both their skills and confidence.

How does it work?

Our Face to Face Grade Booster Tuition will take place in our Bury St Edmunds Learning Centre, ASK House, 2 Northgate Ave, Bury St Edmunds, IP32 6BB.

From Monday 26th Oct to Friday 30th October there will be 3 hour sessions running twice a day.

Morning sessions are 9.00am to 12.00 noon

Afternoon sessions are 1.00pm to 4.00pm.

Each student can sign up for as many sessions as they want at times that suit them. However, we do recommend that at least 2 sessions are required per subject.

Before the Grade Booster week each student will be asked to submit requests for any topic or skill that they would like to focus on during the session.

There is a maximum of 4 students in a group. The Grade booster Tuition is successful because each student receives individualised tuition, advice on exam techniques and effective revision materials.

The cost per session is £70

New from the Community Schools this year is our Home Tutoring Online Grade Booster Course

Like our tried and tested Grade Booster tuition it provides effective targeted support for any student preparing to sit, resit or take mock exams in maths or English Language GCSE. Students can expect to be provided with extra support and structure to reinforce existing skills and to fill in any gaps as they build confidence in the lead up to exam success.

It is aimed for those students who either cannot get to our Face to Face Courses in Bury St Edmunds or prefer to be supported online.

How does it work ?

Subjects available:-  Maths, English

There is a max of 6 students in a group.

For each student, before the start of the course, there will be a Free introductory online consultation with the tutor to determine their strengths and weaknesses and the topics and skills that they would like to cover.

The tutor uses these consultations and their own experience of the key topics and skills necessary for success to prepare the course content.

“Grade Booster” revision courses revisit the key topics/skills necessary for achieving success at GCSE and have a strong focus on both revision techniques and exam practice.

Daily programme

Each day the tutoring programme will be as follows:

  • Two 60 mins shared lessons with the tutor via our digital classroom *
  • A set of consolidation questions set by the tutor for the students to work on individually
  • A  15 minute personal 1-1 tutorial with the tutor to both celebrate achievement and to help focus on key areas for development.

Over the week the students will have access to a total of 11 ¼ hours of tutoring.

The cost is 11 ¼ hours of tutoring for £160

Total Privacy

*  Please note that complete anonymity is assured for students during our Home Tutoring Online Sessions. Our digital classroom is designed so that students are unable to see or hear each other, only the tutor. So for students worried about being with other students, and those who are shy or feel worried about speaking aloud, we would like to reassure them that their work and words will be completely private to them.
