EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE TUITION

 

From our Founder

“My early experiences as a tutor helped us to realise that traditional tutoring wasn’t ideal for inspiring confident learning.

So we created INICIO to make learning fun, positive and interesting. Instead of tutoring at a kitchen table, we bring students together in our own homely learning environments. 

Our approach is unique because your child feels relaxed alongside other students but is guaranteed one-to-one attention from their personal tutor. 

Our tutors are talented, vibrant and engaging. We believe we get amazing results because our tutors connect with students on a personal level and give them the opportunity to learn independently.”

Charlotte Wood   FULL-TIME mentor in French, maths, English and business studies    Interesting fact:  I was a keen hockey player at University, playing for one of the University teams.

Interests/hobbies:  I love visiting my family and friends in the Lake District and, when it’s not raining (which is rare), going for walks up there! I also love travelling to new places.   What three topics do students find difficult in your subject:  Business studies - financial ratios and critical path analysis English - inferences, spellings and identifying language techniques.. French - irregular verb endings and remembering vocab. Maths - converting fractions, decimals and percentages; set theory and problem solving with ratio..   Why do you love teaching these subjects:  Students at INICIO are always keen to learn and improve; it is so rewarding when a student says that they now really enjoy a subject!
