Science

Science tuition at our centres in Maidstone and Medway includes the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, taught at Key Stage 3 and GCSE levels.

Our weekly 2-hour classes are designed to support students’ school learning and teach them the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes, and uses of Science.

Our specialist teachers use a clear, structured, and engaging approach to make complex scientific concepts accessible to all students.

Our teaching assistants with advanced subject knowledge are on hand to provide one-to-one assistance for students struggling with a challenging subject area.

Science tuition – focus areas

 

Improving and strengthening subject knowledge – students learn in small ability-based classes of up to 10, enabling us to quickly establish and overcome any difficulties.

Exam skills – we work on learning to complete as many answers as possible in a clear and concise manner, timing, and maintaining calm and focus.

Key Stage 3 – Years 7-9, Ages 11-14

Over a dozen more subjects are added to students’ school curriculum, and it can be challenging to keep up. Our Science tuition is focused on ensuring your child has a solid foundation and can confidently cope with the pace while progressing towards GCSE level.

Students begin to deepen their knowledge of the scientific ideas and see the connections between the disciplines of Biology, Physics, and Chemistry. They start to understand the big ideas underpinning all scientific knowledge, relate scientific explanations to phenomena in the world around them, and use modelling and abstract ideas to develop and evaluate explanations.

Our differentiated small-class environment enables students to learn at their most suitable level and achieve the best possible results.

Students with a strong interest and advanced ability in Science can learn beyond the National Curriculum level, preparing to go into more depth at GCSE and specialisation at A-level.

Key Stage 4 – GCSE – Years 10-11, Ages 14-16

We provide GCSE Science tuition at Foundation and Higher levels, aimed at helping students consolidate their knowledge and develop effective exam taking skills while they work towards a Double or a Triple GCSE Science qualification.

Students deepen their scientific understanding and the way it relates to everyday life, while learning to apply observational, practical, modelling, enquiry, problem-solving, and mathematical skills.

GCSE Double Science is a two-year course, in which students attain two separate GCSE Science qualifications: Science A GCSE and Additional Science GCSE.

The GCSE Triple Science option leads to three science GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, allowing students to study topics beyond the compulsory science curriculum.

GCSE exams are taken at the end of Year 11 and for best results we recommend joining our classes at the start of year 10.

In addition to weekly Science tuition in Maidstone and Medway, we run additional intensive revision classes in February and during Easter break to get students into the best shape for the exams.

FAQs

Supplementary education at Tuition Academy Maidstone and Medway gives students a strong academic foundation and vital skills to succeed at school and beyond.

How does supplementary education at Tuition Academy Maidstone and Medway differ from classroom study?

At Tuition Academy, we are passionate about teaching students and giving them comprehensive subject knowledge, as opposed to coaching them how to pass exams. We provide a structured, personal, and differentiated learning environment, enabling students to study at their best individual pace and ability. Our teachers engage with our students within a small group, ensuring our students’ learning objectives and needs are met.

Will my child receive support during the examination period?

Of course. We provide full support and advice for all our students before, during and after their exams. Students are welcome to come to the sessions with any questions they may have about participating in exams. Our dedicated staff are on hand to help students achieve their true potential and boost confidence levels.

Yes. All our staff are expert specialist teachers and skilled teaching assistants who are passionate about their subjects.

Do you provide all learning resources?

Is a one-on-one tuition option available?

Although we don’t provide regular one-to-one tuition, we ensure all students have the support they need. If your child is struggling with a subject area and needs some extra help, our experienced teaching assistants with advanced subject knowledge are happy to provide one-to-one assistance.

How will my child’s progress be monitored?

Our teaching staff use their experience in identifying an individual’s abilities and personally monitor your child’s progress. Our teachers will highlight specific areas which may need more attention whether this may be a subject, topic or learning technique. As a parent/guardian, you are welcome to ask our team questions regarding your child’s progress at any time.

When should I start preparing for 11 Plus?

We highly recommend starting 11 Plus preparation one year in advance. We provide specific 11 Plus preparation including exam technique guidance, confidence building, and mock tests, ensuring students feel ready for the test they take in Year 6 before progression into Secondary or Upper School the following September.

If your child needs to raise their subject knowledge levels before starting 11 Plus preparation, we recommend joining our classes in Year 4.

Are 11 Plus mock exams available?

Yes. We have a range of dates available for students to participate in mock exams, allowing up to 6 students to participate per session. Courses work on a ‘first come – first served’ basis and must be booked in advance. Mock Exams will be taken under strict exam conditions and each paper will last 50 minutes. Each paper will be marked and returned enabling students to use for revision. Prices and exam duration vary depending on the course choice.
