                      English Tutors 

English tuition tailored to the NI curriculum

If your child is struggling with the basics in English our tutors are here to help.  At On-Target Tuition in Lisburn, our aim is for your child to have fun with reading and writing and give them the confidence they need to conquer English in the classroom.  We tutor children from age 6 to Year 12 as well as helping students with GCSE retakes in Year 13.  

Before the student begins tuition we carry out an assessment to enable us to put together a programme of work focusing on areas that are weaker, perhaps needing revision or simply needing taught again.  In addition, we are able to offer specific support for Transfer Test (11+) students and exam revision for AQA, Edexcel and CCEA exam boards.

Our English tuition is not a one size fits all study programme.  If your child is struggling with a particular aspect of literacy at school we can adapt their learning plan to tackle any difficulties. Our aim is always to make them feel comfortable in the classroom and ready to take on new concepts. 

Reading is the key to your child's success

Reading is perhaps one of the essential skills of life. However, for many children learning to read is a difficult experience and one fraught with confusion, anxiety and distress for both the child and the parent.  

At On Target Tuition our tutors aim to put the fun back in the subject and build confidence in reading, writing, spelling and comprehension.  We use a multi-sensory approach to tutor reading with an emphasis on phonics and sight word recognition. Through the teaching of decoding, vocabulary building and word knowledge we are able to build on reading comprehension skills and help your child develop the reading skills needed at their level in the classroom.  

If your child is a struggling reader our advice is to get help as soon as possible. Reading really is the key to success in all subject areas. Early intervention is vital to make sure your child is comfortable in their studies going forward. 


'Your tuition transformed him! He really enjoyed the sessions and found an appreciation for and understanding of English that I think will stay with him. His confidence soared as did his ability and we were delighted with his GCSE results, He would not have achieved his grades without you.'

'My daughter before attending On Target Tuition had very low self-esteem and confidence. She struggled with the basics. Since joining On Target she has flourished and grown in such a short period of time. She no longer 'guesses' or 'hestitates' in her reading or answering questions out loud in class and the difference in her school work is astonishing.'

'My son had no confidence when he first started On Target. Within weeks reports from his class teacher said how much his confidence had grown and he would give anything a go. Since Sept ’16 until Jan ’17 he has been moved up 3 reading groups. He loves Janet his teacher and is always happy to go. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere.’
