Flexible teaching in core curriculum subjects, lessons in English language proficiency and creative arts and crafts workshops
‘We’re delighted that all the children have returned for the new academic year. Our approach is to challenge and inspire students, give them personal attention and make learning enjoyable.’
Following a 25-year career in teaching, training and adult education roles, Davinder Lally opened Evergreen Education (with her son, Rajar) in March to provide individually tailored classes in Maths, English, Creative Writing, Biology, Chemistry and Physics for students aged five to 18. ‘The lessons, which are held after school, at weekends and during the holidays, can be designed to prepare for exams, such as the 7+, 11+, GCSEs, A-Levels and International Baccalaureate,’ explains Davinder.
‘We assess every student and devise a teaching plan that meets their needs and is in line with the National Curriculum and their schoolwork. Students of a similar age work at their own pace in small or one-to-one classes with experienced teachers who challenge them and offer constructive support in areas that require improvement.’
Before the students arrive, Evergreen hosts a daytime programme that gives adults the chance to learn or refresh lost creative skills – sewing and embroidery, cake decoration, floristry – alongside English proficiency classes for native and non-native speakers.
‘We’re planning to expand our range of arts and crafts workshops and, locally, there’s a high demand for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and International English Language Testing (IELT) among foreign professionals,’ says Davinder. ‘In addition, we teach Functional Skills English and Math courses for native speakers who wish to develop basic skills and upgrade their employment prospects.
‘Using our method students of all ages and abilities will reach their academic and personal goals. It’s been so encouraging to see familiar faces returning for the autumn term and we hope to welcome more. And look out for Evergreen Science and Maths Holiday Clubs!’
