At Learning Ladders, we foster a holistic approach to our teaching.
We are passionate about the well-being of our students which is why we strive to maintain a balance between academic progress and wellbeing.


We treat students as individuals; we listen to what they need, we tailor,and we personalise our sessions to help nurture their academic personal growth


From our years of experience in teaching, we have realised that half the battle is that children sometimes lack confidence in themselves and their ability. This is why we focus on nurturing a ‘can do’ attitude through positive teaching and focusing on practical strategies to support them.
This method has had proven success in helping our children thrive academically and beyond!

"I would definitely recommend Learning Ladders. As a parent I can tell that Jane loves what she does. Since my daughter started with Learning Ladders last year to help with Maths we have seen a massive change in the way she tackles all her learning and this went hand in hand with starting her sessions with Jane. The little and big treats that Jane sends also is a great treat for them. The exam box was amazing. We would definitely recommend Jane and Learning Ladders."

1-2-1 tuition


Delivered live online for students. Each lesson is tailored to meet the student’s needs. Personalised learning is one of the most powerful tools available in Education and teaching. The aim is to engage students in their learning, supporting them to find enthusiasm in English and Maths and of course understand the exams so they are prepared and feel confident.

Children need to know how to answer in the exam.  They struggle with what to write and how to structure their responses to maximise the marks.  This is one of the main reasons why a child needs a tutor for GCSE.

At Learning Ladders, we offer exam focused tuition specific to your child’s examination board, we work with mark schemes and model for your child how to maximise the marks in their exams.  It is all about technique.


Online Tuition has definitely risen to the challenge of offering a modern alternative to face-to-face tuition, and what’s better- it’s in the comfort of your own home or wherever they are based.

We keep our groups small to achieve the perfect blend of individual attention and group interaction. This helps build confidence and skills that students can use both in the context of school setting and beyond.


Each half term is designed to deliver one course or unit for English and Maths delivered by the same teacher for continuity. The group sessions run weekly. The same level of support is offered beyond the lesson for all students as it is for 1-2-1. Homework that is manageable is set and individual feedback is given. The group sessions  are designed to give students a supportive safe space to develop the skills required to pass their exams. Input from all students ensures there is a real spread of ideas. There are lots of opportunities for students to practice the skills needed. Other students do not see the answers which allows them to fully engage without any anxiety over getting the answers wrong. Camera and audio is also switched off.

For all the group sessions, it is expected that students:

  • Take notes on each session

  • Completing tasks is a crucial element to the process as it develops students understanding. Each task is uploaded to the platform for individual feedback. Each course has been set up to ensure students get the depth of knowledge and application of skills to excel in the exams.

GCSE Maths group sessions

Our Maths lessons students are not only given the skills required for each topic at GCSE, but also the crucial ability to identify what is required and perfect their exam technique in order to maximise marks. Sessions are planned and personalised to meet the needs of each group and students are given ample opportunity to work on areas they find most difficult. Students will cover Algebra, Number, Shape, Ratio and Proportion topics with an emphasis on problem solving skills built into every session. There are groups for both tiers of the papers- Foundation and Higher.

Helping students to achieve, whilst building confidence and self-esteem in their own ability, is what we do. Specialist with the many different examining boards and the specifications studied at local schools and beyond. We understand the importance of knowing exactly what examiners are looking for and exactly what is needed to ensure you child succeeds and receives the grades they’re truly capable of. 

Students will work on areas for development ensuring they understand what's needed for individual questions across the two English language examinations and the two English literature examinations. Students will be shown how to identify exactly what the examiner is asking and looking for and will have a secure understanding of how to structure their responses confidently.
