Maths and English Tutoring

English Tutoring

NEK’s Tutoring Hawthorne English sessions are based on the needs of the individual. The elements of grammar, spelling, sentence structure and punctuation form the basis of learning. During the sessions, children will work through reading, comprehension, spelling and writing activities predominantly through a ‘pen and paper’ approach, combining (very limited) computer work with linked activities on worksheets and in workbooks. The English program contains a sequential phonetic analysis approach to develop literacy. Word family groupings form the basis for the teaching of spelling. This provides a solid foundation for future literacy extension.

Maths Tutoring

NEK’s Tutoring Hawthorne uses a diagnostic and remediation maths program to help children who are experiencing difficulty in maths. Problem areas are noted and corrected, using tutor guidance, workbooks and (very limited) computer assisted instruction. The program is designed for students in years P to 10 and covers all aspects of Number, Space, Measurement, Chance & Data, Algebra, Problem Solving and Fractions – to name a few.
