Therapeutic Private Tuition
We work closely with disaffected young people to help restore faith in education across all key stages of academic development.
Our positive role-models, teachers and coaches trained to ensure that the young person experiences and benefits from real, measurable and self-esteem-boosting success in an environment that works for them!
How Therapeutic Private Tuition works...
Up-Grade provide high-level, person-centered private tuition for young people who:
...have been excluded from school or are school refusers
...do not respond to traditional educational settings
...respond more positively to one-to-one attention
...require a structured and strategic route back into more traditional education
...have become a distraction to their classmates
Up-Grade provide a unique, mindful and patient approach to educating the whole-child through:
...uniquely planned units of work designed to raise attainment levels and self-esteem alike
...planning for, implementing and celebrating structured areas of success
...using positive rapport building with praise and positive reinforcement
...providing positive roles models as tutors and mentors
Up-Grade believe education can take place anywhere - that's why we create classrooms the individual will respond too. Some of these unique locations have included:
...their favourite room in the house
(basically, anywhere the young person is comfortable and engaged)
Up-Grade practice behavioural, motivational and therapeutic techniques taken from:
...CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) approaches and workloads
...NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) approaches to establish and maintain rapport and positive environments
...an entirely unique, planned and revised unit of work which directly serves and grows with the individual young person
