With experience as a classroom teachers of 18 years and 10 years as a tutor, I've had the privilege of working closely with students and parents/carers, witnessing first-hand the challenges and joys of education. Additionally, my training,  as a psychotherapist has provided me with valuable insights into child development and learning strategies.

Through my experiences, both personal and professional, I've come to appreciate the importance of tailored, accessible education that supports both children and parents alike.

One common theme we at SmartStepZ encountered over the years is the difficulty parents/carers face in supporting their children, particularly when it comes to subjects like mathematics and verbal/non-verbal reasoning. Many parents/carers  find themselves teaching concepts based on their own learning experiences, which may not align with the methods used in today's classrooms. This disconnect can lead to frustration and stress for both parent and child.

Recognizing this gap, we embarked on creating online courses designed to follow the UK curriculum while addressing the specific needs of modern families. One key aspect of this program is the use of visual explanations, which research suggests can enhance understanding and retention, especially for young learners.

We've observed that students who excel in exams are often those who possess holistic learning skills and the ability to work independently. Our independent online program aims to foster these qualities, empowering children to become confident, self-directed learners. By providing structured lessons that can be accessed at any time, parents/carers can support their child's education without sacrificing precious family time or extracurricular activities.

Moreover, we firmly believe that education should encompass more than just academics—it should nurture the mind and body in harmony. Encouraging children to engage in diverse interests and activities fosters holistic development, preparing them for the transition from primary to secondary school and beyond.

Ultimately, our goal is to equip your child with the skills and confidence they need to thrive academically and personally. We look forward to supporting you and your family on this enriching journey.
