Mindfulness-based tuition

Are you?

  • Looking to support your child academically but not sure how?
  • Fed up with the homework battles?
  • Tired of the “I don’t knows”?
  • Struggling with how to help prepare for important exams or big transitions?

Do you?

  • Feel guilty for not having enough time to work with your child on their academics?
  • Feel your child could use some academic support but you know your teacher-student dynamic just doesn't work?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, then don’t worry. It’s so common and you’re absolutely not alone!

The truth is that children respond better to leadership when it comes from others - not you, the parent! After all, this is the main reason why we as tutors have a job!

So, if you're tired of the moaning and groaning that greets you each time you try and encourage your child to sit and study for their exams, or to get on with their homework, then you're in luck! Our mindfulness-based tuition programme will not only help your child to develop more academic rigor, they’ll also learn new skills around easing performance anxiety, improving time management and study habits, as well as developing the ability to take ownership over their own actions.

A PERSONALISED TUITION PROGRAMME THAT IS AS UNIQUE AS YOUR CHILD

No two children are the same, so no tuition programme should be the same either! This is why we create a personalised tuition plan that is completely bespoke for your child.

Testimonials

We were recommended Sarahlynn at Bettering Youth by a friend and our daughter has been attending both Maths and Comprehension club for the last term. We are so glad that we signed up. V was doubting her abilities and Maths, in particular, had become a bit of a block. She was very nervous about joining the group but Sarahlynn is so encouraging. She creates a really warm and caring space where the children feel confident and capable. Now I hear V participating and sharing ideas with the other children in the group, without fear of ‘getting it wrong’ or ‘sounding silly’. Her self-belief has really grown and she looks forward to the classes each week. Thank you Sarahlynn!
Sarah-Lynn guided my 10 year old son through a crash course over half term to prepare him for his ISEB Pre-test for entry into senior schools including Harrow, Eton and Winchester. We worked together to identify the specific sub-topics within Maths, English, Non-Verbal and Verbal Reasoning that he needed extra help with. Sarah-Lynn used their time very efficiently so that everything was covered, but was she still very patient and thorough. She had even taken the time to research inspirational quotes that really resonated with my son so it was lovely to see him full of enthusiasm and looking forward to their sessions. She also sent a report after each session and shared her notes so that we could practice further at home. Thanks to Sarah-Lynn, my son was left feeling happy and confident ahead of his exam.

Sarahlynn has been tutoring my daughter for over a year initially in Maths and more recently in both Maths and English. Sarahlynn is patient, encouraging, smart and kind.

My daughter was initially in year 3 and now in year 4 and during this time the standard of her Maths has increased and she has moved up an attainment set since the beginning of year 4. Sarahlynn varies her tuition depending on the subjects being covered at school and is very thorough at appraising my daughter fully that she understand ths area of focus. She works with Bond and CGP books, her own worksheets, written test papers from when she taught in the classroom, and verbal / arithmatic games depending on the requirement of the day.

In English she has been extremely thorough, working on Grammar, spellings, content & structure and more recently, written comprehension. She shows smart strategies to approach these subjects on a weekly basis. I recommend Sarahlynn very highly. She genuinely cares for my daughter both academically but more importantly, for her well-being and happiness as a child.

“Sarahlynn has been nothing but a source of strength and encouragement for my daughter Ella. After struggling with confidence at school and feeling embarrassed to put her hand up in class, she was falling behind. Since Sarahlynn has been working with her, she has gone up a Math set and has become noticeably more relaxed in social settings. We couldn’t be more proud.”

You have been a great mentor. When I was sad you would always be there to help me without judgement. I’ve learnt many things with your help. Thank you.
– Natasha, year 6 student

Sarahlynn helped our daughter through her first steps of learning English after we moved to the UK. She was always responsive over email, very kind, caring and patient with our daughter and was genuinely interested in helping her succeed. Would heartily recommend Sarahlynn as a tutor.

Since Sarah-Lynn started with her some months ago in preparation for the 11+ tests. My daughter looks forward to the lessons and there’s a keenness to do a good job in her homework. Moving the lessons online since the Covid19 situation has also been very successful. Would recommend Sarah-Lynn without hesitation

Sarahlynn is currently tutoring our sons in both Maths and English. She is highly professional and really enthusiastic about her work. She is very helpful in providing material to support their learning and has built a great relationship with our children. Sarahlynn has an individual approach and has the ability to understand the needs of each child. Our eldest son has recently been recognised by his school as having made a significant progression in his English which is a great achievement. She has the ability to engage and motivate the children and we would highly recommend her to any parent seeking a tutor for their child.

Benefits of Online Learning

Bettering Youth has been working with students online with great results!

"I like learning online because it helps me see and hear the information in a variety of ways so I, as a visual learner, can understand it better."
- K.F year 5 student

How we make everything "easy peasy, lemon squeezy"!

When you work with us as a parent, we’ll guide you through our simple four-step process to creating a bespoke support journey for your child - one that will banish the homework struggle and instill a new love of learning.

1.

It all begins with a quick five-minute questionnaire. We know you’re busy, so we promise this won’t take long!

2.

We’ll then arrange to have a complimentary 30-minute conversation, where you’ll be able to share your current goals for your child’s tuition programme and let me know in what areas you think that they need to improve upon. I’ll also find out more about your child’s learning style and interests, to ensure that this is considered during our time together.

Furthermore, we’ll also discuss the results from the questionnaire and provide you with some quick but effective tools to help support your child; meaning that you can come away from your free call already armed with some action steps to support your child right from the get go!

3.

Now that we’ve delved a little deeper, the Bettering Youth team will get to work on creating a unique programme that will help your child improve their grades, grow in confidence, and build resiliency.

4.

Let’s start the journey! Once we’re all set and you’re happy with our programme outline, your child will embark on their first session with the Bettering Youth team, and their journey to better grades, improved confidence and resilience will begin!
