About Us

The teachers take a traditional and involved approach in teaching to prepare the students for success in their chosen path. Our teachers are focussed to develop their young minds, broaden their horizons and help them grow into confident adults. For the teachers, teaching is not just about what is being taught in the classroom and they go beyond traditional teaching to help the students.

Our Covid-19 Approach

The year 2020 was our first step towards online teaching. We started gradually using social media and video conferencing software to support students and help them catch up with their curriculum. This eventually established us from just in person to online and in person permanently and now we can help students who cannot access us in person. We have been using technology and social media to supplement the learning process for each individual learner, especially during exam preparations.

Our Journey

Learn to Excel started its journey from dining table classroom back in 2009. With the success of a handful of students who were tutored, came recognition. No formal advertisements were carried out. Recognition came only through the word of mouth. Soon we rented an apartment solely for classrooms which became insufficient to accommodate our growing number of children. In 2016 we moved to our current premises, Prince of Wales house. We are very proud to say that all our students come through recommendation. Majority of our students joining us from KS2 or higher, go through their primary and secondary education with us and leave after completing GCSEs.

Mentoring

We employ our ex-students to assist in teaching and mentoring the KS2, KS3 and preparing for GCSEs. The young adults talk about their first-hand experiences, their achievement, their learning journey with the help of Learn to Excel. It helps the KS3 children prepare for what to expect when they must choose their GCSE subject. Even the KS3 children are given the opportunity to help the younger children, boosting their own confidence and consolidating their own learning, helping them to build a strong foundation.

Our Aim

Our aim is to enable the children to love the subjects and grow into well-rounded individuals. We start from the core of the subjects and build it up, boosting their confidence, motivating them to work harder and laying the path for fulfilling their ambitions. We work in close partnership with their parents to understand and respect their wishes and support them in our best ability.

Volunteering for Duke of Edinburgh Awards

Students who join Duke of Edinburgh Awards volunteer at Learn to Excel. It is a great way to get great teaching skills and the ability to work on a Saturday made sure that the students could get all volunteering hours completed without affecting their school days.
