Join Marvellous Minds Tuition, Bedford
With some year groups going back to school next week and others set to follow in a couple of weeks, we are seeing an increase in enquiries from parents who are looking for tuition support for their children. This is commonly to help those students who have struggled with homeschooling and perhaps fallen behind where they should be or lost motivation for their studies. Other parents are looking for help to ensure their child can quickly catch up when back at school and many parents are now starting to either think about, or step up, preparation for entrance exams such as the 11 plus. Regardless of the reason for seeking tuition, we are here to help. 
 
As of next week we will be continuing to offer our online timetable of classes as well as resuming in-house classes at our centre. If you are interested in enrolling your child with us we would usually recommend the steps outlined below. 
Private Tuition Centre in Bedford
We hope you are well and staying safe. 
 
As you will know, the government has advised that schools and other educational settings such as our private tuition centre are likely to open again on 1st June. This has not yet been fully confirmed but in line with the government advice we are preparing to reopen our private tuition centre on 1st June. 
 
The safety of our students and staff will be of highest priority when we do reopen and we are carrying out a thorough risk assessment to ensure our centre is a safe learning space.

We are into week 7 of lockdown now and many of us will have experienced feelings of boredom, fatigue and a lack of energy. Mental health has also been adversely affected for many people. While we all understand the benefits of keeping physically active (Joe Wicks daily challenges anyone?) it is also extremely important to keep our minds stimulated and engaged, particularly for children who are being home educated at the moment. 
Reading Comprehension Top Tips
Schools in the UK have now been closed to all students, except for those children classed as vulnerable and children of key workers, for nearly 7 weeks and many expected them to stay closed until the next academic year. However Boris Johnson is due to announce at the end of the week that schools are to reopen for some students as early as 1st June as part of the government's plans to ease the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. Students in year 6 are most likely to go back first, followed by the remaining primary years, and pre-GCSE and AS level years in secondary schools. 
Reading Comprehension Top Tips
Reading comprehension is an important part of any student's education. Students need good reading comprehension not just for the regular reading comprehension tasks and tests they will face in literacy, but perhaps more more importantly, in order to absorb, process and understand anything they read across any subject. 
 
Many of the students we work with struggle with reading comprehension and parents don't always know how to best help. Luckily there are a number of tips and methods that we have found useful in improving students' comprehension skills! 
Home education during Covid-19
Millions of school children across the UK have been staying at home for the past few weeks due to schools closures imposed by the government during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Parents and carers of school children are therefore suddenly shouldering the responsibility of not only caring for their children during these difficult times, but also managing their children's education. This poses a challenge for many, particularly for those parents who are also trying to manage their own workload. 
Coronavirus and impact on education
On the 11th March 2020, The World Health Organisation (WHO) categorised COVID-19 as a pandemic, with Europe declared as the new epicentre of the outbreak. As a result of this, counties across the world, including here in the UK, are experiencing closures to their schools and workplaces. Since these drastic closures have never been experienced before, the majority are understandably left worried about the impact this pandemic will have upon their child’s education. With school cancelled for the foreseeable future and uncertainty ahead, it is important to maintain normality and routine to your child’s education as much as possible. But the question remains, how can we ensure the well being and education of our children are not compromised? 
Modern Technology in the classroom
According to a recent survey carried out on behalf of the music streaming company ROXI, children are spending 23 hours per week on smartphones and other gadgets, equating to twice as much time as they spend conversing with their parents. 
Homeschooling, Bedford

What is homeschooling? 

Although the clue is in the name, homeschooling is often misperceived as set structure of a parent teaching their own child, in their own home. In fact, homeschooling is the term used to explain the education of a child anywhere other than ‘school’. A child may be home educated at home, and/or in several different places, such as tuition centres and local home education centres. In many instances it is the parent who takes on the role of teacher; however, a tutor or an online teacher may also be involved in a home educated child’s learning.
