Our Gifted and Talented tutors and consultants provide support for families whose children need help to be appropriately challenged and academically stretched.

A child can be doing ‘really well’ and ‘top of their class’ in Maths and English, yet still be considered to be coasting and not nearly reaching their full potential. These children get bored very easily and this can sometimes mean that they are not actually doing very well at school as they have switched off from learning.

Gifted and Talented children can often finish standard homework in seconds, but typically find it difficult when they are faced with real challenges because they’ve always found everything so easy. This means they tend to get very frustrated and give up too easily, as they have not built up any resilience or techniques to try to solve these types of problems, and this can cause difficulties later on if it is not addressed.

Our experienced Gifted and Talented tutors are outstanding teachers with many years’ experience and knowledge in this field. They push bright children in an engaging and motivating way and allow them to progress through higher order thinking and logic puzzles, rather than just delivering the curriculum earlier to them.

Benefits of Gifted and Talented Tutoring

Gifted and talented students, often excelling in specific subjects, face unique challenges that are often overlooked. Contrary to the misconception that Gifted and Talented students don’t require tutoring, targeted support in weaker subjects is essential for their holistic development.

At JK Educate, we understand the nuanced needs of Gifted and Talented students, and our tutoring services are designed to ensure they thrive across all academic areas.

Some of the many benefits of Gifted and Talented tutoring include:

  • Holistic Mastery: Gifted and Talented tutoring fosters comprehensive mastery, bridging gaps in subjects where such students may face challenges.
  • Addressing Weaknesses: Gifted and Talented students can struggle in specific areas such as Maths or Science. Tutoring provides focused assistance to overcome these challenges.
  • Individualised Attention: Despite their academic strengths, Gifted and Talented students may lack attention in challenging subjects. Tutoring support offers personalised guidance for optimal learning.
  • Realising Full Potential: One-on-one tutoring helps Gifted and Talented students unlock their complete potential, ensuring they don’t just pass but excel in all academic areas.
  • College Readiness: Achieving full potential is crucial for college admissions. Tutoring ensures Gifted and Talented students are well-prepared for their desired academic paths and helps them realise all of their options.

Case Studies

Emma

Emma* came to us with low confidence as she was mildly dyslexic. We assessed her and found that she had a fantastic imagination and was extremely articulate. Through gentle English tutoring and encouragement, Emma understood how talented she was and developed into a gifted writer with a deep passion for literature and creative writing. Emma became so confident that she decided to sit for the 11+ and she achieved a place at the school of her choice. She has thrived there ever since, going on to win prizes for outstanding achievements in English.

Paul

Paul’s* parents came to us with him in Year 5, as he was so frustrated and wasn’t enjoying school. Once we had assessed him, we understood he was extremely able in maths and because he had other special needs it hadn’t been recognised in school. We immediately put a plan in place to extend his maths through expert tutoring; his confidence grew and he went from strength to strength. He sat the 11+ and went to a very academic school that stretched him, allowing him to really enjoy school.

Taylor

Taylor* was low in confidence and really didn’t think he was good at much. We assessed him and discovered he had great potential and was totally underachieving at school. Taylor had tutoring in maths and English over a period of two years and excelled in both subjects. At this point he was unrecognisable – a confident and happy young person with lots of friends – and he gained a place at the senior school of his choice.

Raul

Raul* came to us as the youngest of three and he was underachieving at school. After an academic assessment, we understood that he was simply not in the right school. Raul needed catch up tutoring and to move to a school with less behavioural problems, so he could enjoy his learning and thrive. Once he settled into his new school, we worked on his maths and English through tutoring. He became an outstanding achiever in both subjects and went on to gain a place at a top independent school.

These case studies are genuine, but names have been changed to protect our students’ privacy.
