A top-up is a one-to-one session by a teacher or teaching assistant to help a child with specific weaknesses identified from assessing the weekly homework. Weekly homework is reviewed by our teaching staff ahead of the next lesson, so that top-ups can be arranged for any child that is struggling.
Due to the vast amount of topic-based tests on our online platform, we are able to set homework tailored to what has been taught in the lesson. The topic videos are extension of the lesson and can be watched at home to help the child consolidate their learning. As a result, the vast majority of the children are able to do their homework to a high standard each week. However, there will be occasions when a child still needs individual support on a specific topic.
Top-ups do not disrupt the lesson, as they held outside the lesson time, usually before or after the lesson in slots of 15 or 30 minutes depending on the topic needing attention.
Top-ups offer peace of mind to parents they are assured that if their child is not keeping up with the class, that he or she will receive the attention they need to progress.
