Hello from Claire and Trevor, and welcome to our new website for Cambourne Tutoring, 'a little business with a big heart', supporting local children, here in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire.
A bit about us...
We are both fully qualified teachers with over 20 years of teaching experience between us, fully insured and DBS checked.
We always aim to deliver high quality teaching, through precise and tailored planning that is fun, purposeful and effective.
Qualified Teacher Status
At Cambourne Tutoring, we provide specific learning support for English, Maths and Science for children in primary and secondary schools.
For our initial meeting, we will invite you to our home in order to get to know you and your child and also discuss what you would like from a tutor. This also helps us to identify strengths and weaknesses; set goals and personal learning plans. Communication with parents is very important to us and so we will often write a brief note/email/text or have a conversation to explain the learning for that session.
All learning is carried out in accordance with the National Curriculum or where appropriate, your child's specific school curriculum. Our lessons also include homework to allow your child to consolidate or extend their learning based on what has been taught. Ongoing feedback, whether from home or from school is welcomed and learning plans are adapted to accommodate changes. We are always flexible and responsive to the needs of your child.
Cambourne Tutoring offers both face to face and online tutoring sessions.
Cambourne Tutoring is proud of its high success rate in securing pupils a place in their preferred school. Through targeted teaching and exam practice, we will prepare your child to feel confident and relaxed so that they can achieve their best.
Supporting our Community
We are delighted to work alongside the fantastic charity, Romsey Mill, and for the last two years have provided tuition for vulnerable children and those with Education Health Care Plans. This has been incredibly rewarding.
In 2019, we created Cambourne Chess to give children the opportunity to gain the practical and educational benefits from learning and playing chess. We currently have two teams who play competitively in the Cambridgeshire Chess Championships and represent Cambourne proudly.
Contact us to arrange an informal chat. We’d be delighted to discuss your needs and what we can offer to meet them.
"Claire - we would love to be your students - your teaching voice and style are so, so nice!"
Claudia and Alan
"Trevor is an amazing tutor! He gave my son confidence and went above and beyond. He helped him realise life is interesting. Thanks to Trevor my son is a happy changed child."
"Claire, we are absolutely over the moon. Thank you so much for everything you have done. I never dreamed he could get this score! What an achievement."
"Trevor has helped our daughter immensely. She thoroughly enjoys her tutoring sessions and is always super keen to share what she's learned, particularly how much easier it is when Trevor explains it, which has earned him the nickname 'clever Trevor' in our household. We are so grateful for the support we have received from Cambourne Tutoring and cannot thank you enough!"
"M has only been working with Trevor for a short amount of time but we have already seen the benefits. He enjoys attending his sessions and we are able to support and consolidate his learning with interesting homework activities. We have been able to use the resources that have been given to help with M's school work as well. We look forward to the next academic year and are confident that with Trevor's tuition M will continue to grow and develop his learning. Thank you!"
"Claire, is an excellent, kind and caring teacher. She taught my son for two years and he not only enjoyed his learning but also grew in confidence. He always looked foward to his lessons with her. I highly recommend Claire!"
"Trevor provides a very calm, patient and caring environment in which to learn and thrive. My son always comes out with a smile on his face and the work is well pitched."
"Claire really helped my niece gain confidence across literacy, numeracy and phonics. I cannot recommend Claire highly enough; her calm, warm but determined demeanour had a real impact on my niece’s early learning experience. We are very grateful Claire, thank you."
"This was the best decision we ever made."
