At the moment, all of us are having to adapt and that’s exactly what’s happening at West Norfolk Tuition Centre, where the experienced and dedicated staff are adapting their services to help parents and children to safely navigate their way through these turbulent times.

Since 2012, centre director Jane Murray and her team have provided quality bespoke help and support for families, tailoring learning for a wide selection of students with a variety of requirements.

Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the base in Downham is closed. However, this is not stopping the staff from teaching children remotely and leading their learning by using different forms of communication technology to deliver one to one sessions.

The lessons are allowing students to safely interact with the teachers and provide instant feedback which encourages and motivates and also means misconceptions are minimised.

“I’m delighted with parental feedback about our ‘new style’ lessons. Parents, some of whom are doctors and teachers, have thought how impressive it is and can see how it’s making a real difference to their child’s home learning.” Jane Murray told us.

The DBS-registered staff are welcoming calls from students and parents, wanting people to know that they are not alone and that they are here to help; they want to reassure them that the online platforms used for tutoring meet all safeguarding standards and requirements.

Jane said the Ofsted-registered company had been of invaluable academic support to the locality for eight years and is striving to adapt to maintain the quality educational assistance they provide.

She said: “Students have enjoyed the online lessons and found it comforting to hear our voice and to see our face. Parents, contacting the centre for guidance, have found it helpful and reassuring to discuss ways to assist their child to get the most benefit from their home schooling.”
