I am Shazia Tahir and I am the owner and the centre principal at the Bury Tuition Centre in Bury, Lancashire. I am a fully qualified teacher with over 12 years’ teaching experience in local schools. The centre was established in Bury in 1998 and has helped hundreds of local students who needed extra tuition in Maths or English.
Until 2011 I was working as a Primary teacher in quite a challenging school. I love to teach but always wished that I could spend more individual teaching time with every student to encourage them to reach their full academic potential. About the same time, my son was having difficulties in Maths and, although I am a teacher, I felt he could benefit from extra tuition in an environment outside the home since he only sees me as mum!
As an independent centre, we have complete freedom to target our extensive resources towards specific requirements, as well as the particular educational stage the pupil is at; whether its SATs, 11+, GSCE or A-level. Our pupils flourish because they are treated as individuals, and each one is taught using the teaching methods that are most suited to their own needs. This proven policy ensures the abilities of all pupils are always optimised.
High Standards of Teaching
Bury Tuition Centre's success is credited to our high standards of teaching and the value we place upon our individual learning programmes; we know every single one of our pupils greatly benefits from an educational plan that has been specially designed for them. A consultation and assessment of a potential pupil's needs is a free service that is provided to anyone who enquires about a place at our centre.
Learning in Small Groups and One to One Tuition
SATs and 11+ exams can be daunting prospect for our younger pupils, but we know that by learning in small groups with one to one tuition and strong encouragement they will approach them with self-belief. The same ethos applies to our GCSE and A-level tuition; we strive to give all of our pupils the confidence to work towards the results that will give them a bright future.
