Reopening in September
We help frustrated parents stop nagging by showing them exactly how to help their child succeed at GCSE.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THEIR TEACHER.
BE THEIR COACH.
So how does it work when I sign up?
Here’s what one of our members said…
“I decided to sign-up to the Programme to bring myself up-to-date and be more fully informed of the content of what my year 11 daughter would need to revise, but also to be in a better position to be able to support her, subtly.
My daughter wasn’t that keen for me to get more involved with her revision, but I felt ‘forewarned is forearmed’ and my gut told me that being able to gently guide her from a distance would be the best way forward and would give her the best opportunity to excel.
A deal was agreed between us that we would have a ten minute catch up every Sunday evening and I would relay the contents of the email and my daughter would run through her week. Sometimes it ended in me being asked to leave, but on the whole, it happened and was constructive, even if said daughter didn’t admit it at the time!
The weekly emails were extremely supportive, succinct and full of useful links to additional suggested resources, with additional ideas and revision suggestions. Focussing on a different subject each week and with a ‘one thing this week…’ suggestion, I felt the programme brought me up-to-date (things have changed A LOT since the late 1980’s, it turns out!)
I was able to help steer my daughter in the right direction and get an insight into the pressures they are under and the volume of content they have to learn – and the best way to revise the volume of quotes, equations and text.
Thank you to Emily and Paul for sharing your wealth of professional and personal experience – I look forward to the A-Level programme soon!”
And her daughter’s version…?
When Mum first told me about the programme she had signed up to, I was sceptical at first, as I didn’t want Mum to interfere with my work. I had already started thinking about my revision and didn’t think I needed any extra help or guidance.
What I have found is that the weekly emails really helped me.
The extra links to free resources I didn’t know were available were more than what I had already been told about at school and saved a huge amount of time.
The ideas for revision, planning and what to focus on for that week were very useful and looking back, I feel I had the best chance to succeed.
I don’t know how my results will turn out, but I do know I tried – and that has helped me in the craziness of the last few weeks.

I would most definitely recommend signing up – fantastic structured advice, tools, checklists and discussion groups that helps revision seem so much less overwhelming for both my daughter and me!
She actually looks forward to the weekly emails we receive so she can put the advice into play rather than thinking I’m nagging her to simply revise… she now knows where to start!

The revision plan generator. Yes, there’s a free version, but look how much more you get as a member…
Overall, the programme so far has been as we hoped – telling us stuff we didn’t even know we needed to know, and helping our responsible, bright Y11 feel on top of things.
She wants to do well and deserves to, as she works really hard, and it feels like we can now help ensure her work is consistently useful and gets results.

Schools generally do a fantastic job of making sure your teenager knows everything they need to know in order to pass their exams. That said, teenagers aren’t always the best at communicating (or remembering), so it often doesn’t filter through to parents. While you can entrust a lot of this to schools, your child spends around 50% of their possible learning time at home, so they need someone to help keep them on track there too.
You can find quite a bit of it, if you have the time to search, and you know what to search for. Trouble is, there’s a lot of bad advice out there, as well as a lot of old advice. We do the filtering-out-the-rubbish bit, so you don’t have to.
If it helps, think of us as a time-saving subscription box. You’ll have seen the meal-prep kit adverts – instead of going shopping, deciding what to cook, searching for recipes, and checking whether you have all the ingredients (and then measuring them), you just get them to send you a box with all the right stuff in, including instructions. No wasted time or effort, and no brain power required (because let’s face it, your day has been challenging enough already).
We do that, but instead of dinner, we ‘prep’ your knowledge about what to talk to your child about to keep them on track!
Other than reading the emails, and watching any videos you are interested in, it’s really up to you how long you spend getting involved. The aim is to make our tips things you could discuss over the dinner table with your child, since we know you’re busy!
There’s a catch-up system in place – don’t worry. We’ll make sure you get all of the weekly emails, even the ones that have already gone out earlier in the year.
We will be creating exam-board specific materials – there will be a bank of documents for each subject and each exam board that will have the specification, revision checklists, and past papers. Content for many subjects is pretty similar across exam boards (maths particularly for example), but for those that do vary, we’ll give advice for each exam board.
We haven’t covered CCEA, as they are set up quite differently (they have modular exams). We do however have AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC / Eduqas and CIE covered.
Yup. Got those covered too.
My child has a learning difficulty – will you be able to help us find a way to revise that works for him?
We’ll be covering plenty of options, so that you can help your child find the right one(s) for them, and use them efficiently. Everyone is different, so we’re covering all the bases.
You can cancel the monthly plan at any time, and we won’t take any more payments. If you’ve paid in advance and want to cancel, we’ll refund based on how many months are left until the end of June.
Just head to the members area, click on ‘my account’ and then ‘subscriptions’. You should see the option to cancel there. If you have any problems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re always happy to hear from you, so if you feel we’ve missed anything, or could be doing better, then please do let us know!
Private tutors are a great way to improve a specific grade. If it’s just one subject you’re concerned about, then that’s the way to go. We however, provide you as a parent with the tools you need to help your child improve all their grades, by improving their study skills overall. We’ll also help you to make this a less stressful year for the whole family, by making your interactions with your child more support, less ‘nag’.
We’ve also teamed up with YourFavouriteTeacher.com to offer 50% off for our members – they cover the whole of the GCSE Maths & English curriculum with online lessons, quizzes and worksheets.
GCSEs in Wales are graded differently (you sensibly stuck with A*-G), but we will be including WJEC (the Welsh exam board)-specific information in the programme too.
We’re not including CCEA in our exam boards this year, as it’s a little too differently set up (they still allow for students to take exams in January, rather than all at the end of the course. If your child’s exams are mostly with CCEA, we won’t be very helpful to you. We’re sorry.
We are in our first year, so that’s probably why!
