Who are the experts?

As well as being a key member of our teacher training team, Fiona also offers tuition, treatments and workshops from her base in Sandhurst, Berkshire.
Wellbeing is key
Children’s mental health is a real and growing concern in our modern society.
Our techniques look to give your child the ‘super power’ to improve their knowledge and life skills.
Through the Nurture Learning tuition programme, all of our tutors promote independent thinking and mindfulness.
This not only builds confidence, but also improves emotional intelligence.
It’s these core skills that will ensure your child thrives in exam situations, such as when taking the 11+ – an area of tuition that we specialise in.
Qualified, DBS-validated Tutors
Nurture Learning take our responsibilities to your children and family very seriously.
All of our tutors are qualified, DBS-checked and have real experience of teaching in schools.
Our teaching methods complement your child’s experience in the classroom and are tailored to suit the needs of the children we teach.
In addition to this, every Nurture Learning Teacher is qualified in Reiki to ensure that every learning experience is supported by a tutor that practises what they preach.
This means that the Nurture Learning methods are embedded in everything that we do.
Nurture Learning is not just a token gesture yoga or mindfulness activity thrown in once a week.
Nurture Learning is a whole new way of teaching that starts with the teacher and filters down to every single child that we teach.
