Revision workshops 2017 18th-21st April 2017

GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE REVISION WORKSHOPS

Following positive feedback from previous years and in response to demand, A-Star English will be running revision workshops during the Easter holidays, from the 18th to the 21st of April 2017. Our revision sessions are aimed at both Years 10 and 11, with the focus on the new GCSE public examinations and will be held in the Badger Farm Community Centre, Winchester. (Located behind Sainsbury’s car park.)
 
A-Star English believe that a group learning environment creates opportunities for active learning – a proven system for allowing the memory to retain information. A difficulty with much group learning, however, is that attention can be less focused than in a one-to-one learning environment. Our workshops overcome this with a high staff-to-student ratio, ensuring that individual needs are met.

Each session will be run by at least two of our Tutors, assisted by Support Assistants at the busiest times. Sessions will contain dynamic and focused activities which will boost A-Star English’s scheme of one-to-one private tuition. They will correspond directly with the examinations set by the AQA exam board and so prepare and familiarize students with the content and structure of their exams. (We can also accommodate students sitting exams with different boards or the IGCSE.)

Students will be provided with a revision folder for use within the workshops. This folder will help them in their final revision weeks.

The following pricing scheme applies.

* One or two sessions - £45 per session

* Between three and eight sessions - £35 per session

Please contact A-Star English to book a place for your preferred sessions. In order to secure your place, payment must be made in advance.
