Achievers Point’s English Tuition Programmes
Achievers Point provides tuition for students in English between the ages of 5-17; from pre-school up to A Level or Highers. Many centres also offer tuition in GCSE or National 5 English and cater for 11+ and SATs.
English tuition covers grammar, reading, spelling, comprehension, phonemic awareness and written expression. The programme caters for students who are virtual non-readers through to those who have only minor difficulties.
The curriculum covers all aspects of English that students are expected to learn in school (where English is the first language). The programme is carefully designed so that each student progresses at his/her own pace. A student can start anywhere within the AP programme at exactly the level suited to his/her current ability and knowledge.
There are five key areas in the Achiever Point’s English curriculum:
- Early Reading
(Including vocabulary development and grammar)
Pre-school, Reception and Years 1-4

Depending on age, children can progress from this programme to the Achievers Point Reading Programme as their reading skills improve.
