What drives the high demand for home academic support ?
Academic levels are getting increasingly higher and parents want to spend more quality time with their children. Many parents no longer regard home-schooling support as failure, in fact it is considered to be a way of gaining access to better individual progress and better academic results.
The CNED (Centre national d’éducation à distance-National Centre for Distance Education) is a French public institution led by the Department of Education. The CNED’s role is to provide students within the English education system with distance learning material allowing them to follow both the English and French curriculums and permitting them to easily (re)integrate the French education system. The CNED is tutored by specially trained teachers.
Can I have a CNED tutor at my children’s school ?
Yes, we generally provide individual or group support in English schools such as Clifton High School in Bristol, Our Lady of Victories, St Mary, Gem Hamphire school, or Sinclair House school etc…
Could the parents find a teacher by themselves ?
Yes, which is often the case before they call us. Parents come to us and we provide them with not only a graduate and experienced teacher but also one who is trained in the specific subject at a certain level. This later creates a particular satisfaction within the parent(s) and builds their loyalty.
Firstly, all our teachers are interviewed to ensure that they meet all the requirements. Secondly, they are chosen based on their academic profile and their availability. Teachers need to at least have the teaching level required by the French Ministry of National Education.
Finally, our teachers are selected based on their relational and educational skills to give private lessons at home.
