What to expect

Are you looking for the best online teaching resources to help your children at home? Does your child need a bit of help with improving their creative writing or comprehension skills? Are you new to online tutoring? The Tutoress has put together a weekly schedule of live streams to support parents and children with their home learning. Join Victoria Olubi, teacher and founder of the Tutoress tutoring agency in London, on Facebook every Wednesday at 7pm for a free English tutorial. She will be helping primary school students to ace the 11+ as well as build their confidence in creative writing and comprehension.  

Aimed at children aged 9-13 years of age, these free teaching resources are a great way to keep up your child's learning at home. Older kids will also benefit too and will pick up some valuable tips. Kids will learn about comprehension, creative writing, vocabulary, spelling, punctuation and grammar. If your kids love writing and reading stories, Victoria has already done a great session on ways to start a story as well as how to write engaging character descriptions. Your mini authors will be writing books in no time! And if your children aren't getting full marks on their comprehension work and are finding it hard, Victoria will help them understand the questions and give tips and tricks to help you improve their comprehension skills. This virtual class is a brilliant new resource for KS2 and KS3 learners, and one that parents and children can do together.

So, tune in for free writing activities KS2 kids will find engaging, educational and fun! If you find this tutorial of use and would like more online maths resources, check out this times tables masterclass or dive into these online educational games for KS2 kids. Get stuck into learning!
