Big Improvements Philosophy

We help students realise their capabilities, and motivate their continued success


We believe that any child can succeed at school. The secret is to help students see –and believe in– their own capabilities.

Confidence plays a significant role in helping students make the most of their education. If they lack self-belief, they think that they are bad at school and are reluctant to even ask for help.

We have created a conducive learning environment by hand-picking our tutors and including a strategic teaching methodology that is centred on building your Childs’ confidence. Helping them to overcome their anxiety and stress around school work by developing missing skills, and learning how to systematically approach their future work with ease. 

With this, we have helped over three thousand students to see Big Improvements at school and beyond.

Helping your child go from surviving to thriving

Big Improvements was founded on 4 distinct values

Great Environment

The first thing you’ll notice at any of our venues is that the learning environment is relaxed and fun. We don’t mimic the school environment which students may associate with negative feelings. Our venues provide a supportive space where students learn new approaches to their work.
Image

Positive & fun learning

Weekly support sessions develops a routine and helps students to master their skill-set and grow their confidence. Your child will continue refining their skills until they reach that ever important “ah-ah” moment when their work really makes sense. Then it’s locked in for life!
Image

Supported & Self-motivated

Experience is another vital component in our methodology. It’s ok to get it wrong on the first try. What’s important is that your child keeps trying. Students learn to persevere, and when they see that they can accomplish their work, the results are astounding.

The right focus - Skills that matter

We identify and develop each individuals’ missing skills and our tutors use your child’s interests, likes and drivers to explain their work in a captivating and engaging way. Feeling way more at ease, and happy to explore, your child will be comfortable to give it go. And that’s half the battle won.

Why the environment at Big Improvements Tutoring Matters


You may be wondering why we don’t offer home tutoring – or if one-on-one tutoring might be the best option for your child. We believe that the Big Improvements environment adds to your child’s tutoring experience and future success.

Children associate feelings to settings.

Children associate the school environment with their feelings of despondency and home as a safe haven.

The Big Improvements Tutoring venues provide a new setting, students’ understand it is an environment dedicated to providing the support and encouragement they need.

They know that for an hour a week they will:

  • Be surrounded by students facing similar needs who support each other as they grow.
  • Receive the attention they need from a dedicated professional who has designed the session specifically for them.
  • Be able to go home with a clear plan of how to complete their homework and then decompress.

Study-Buddies eliminate the intimidation of one-on-one tutoring.

We tutor students in pairs, keeping the groups personal and small enough to receive individual attention but removing the intimidation of one-on-one tutoring.

Students like knowing that their tutor is there to help at any step of the way, and appreciate the breathing space while they are trying to solve a problem on their own.

  • Study buddies are always students who have similar needs.
  • Students take comfort knowing that they are not alone and that someone else can relate to what they are struggling with.
  • Students also naturally encourage each other.
  • There is a magical moment when a student has an “ah-ha” moment because they feel compelled to share this moment with their buddy and helps the other student to benefit from this shared knowledge.

How our tutors ignite enthusiasm towards learning

We won’t use generic worksheets, screens, or pre-set programmes that take a one-size-fits all approach.

Your first session acts as individual assessment, which helps us to understand your child’s style of learning and which skills they may be missing.

We also learn more about what motivates, inspires, concerns, bores, or captivates your child.

Our tutors use this information to create interactive, stimulating activities that resonates with their personality.

We can assist with planning and preparation for school assignments too.

We also leverage off the varied experiences and strategies that different tutors can offer your child.

This approach has proven wildly successful because students love having a variety of mentors to guide them and learning is uninterrupted as sessions need not be cancelled depending on availability of a single tutor.
