EMS Tutoring (English, Maths, Science) is the Educational Arm of Friends of the Caribbean (FOTC), we are not a franchise operation, but a local community group helping students attending schools in Milton Keynes. Friends of the Caribbean (FOTC) was established twelve years ago and in 2010 gained charity status. In the past, we have supported other charities, such as Diabetes UK, Prostate Cancer UK, Willen Hospice, Haiti Earthquake Appeal, and others.
Our organisation, in partnership with Stantonbury Campus, has successfully delivered mentoring to youngsters within the 10-16 age group in Milton Keynes. With this experience, we extended our influence in education with the aim to promote and improve scholastic performances, among ethnic minorities, low performing and disadvantaged students in the community. The goal is to provide support, motivation and inspiration for these students to move onto higher education, enter ‘better’ universities and pursue professional avenues in engineering, business, medicine, etc. In 2015, we launched our tutoring program, providing academic assistance to students (KS2 - GCSE) in English, Maths, Science and students preparing for 11plus grammar school entry exams.
Recent GCSE results show a general decline in students’ performance - lowest levels since 2008, indicating an even more significant impact among ethnic minorities, low performing and disadvantaged students in our community. Our organisation supports students of all backgrounds, but the tutoring effort is highlighted by our concern for the impacted student group. Notwithstanding the recent results, students tutored at EMS Tutoring Centre were very happy with their results, achieving A* - B in the core subjects, English, Maths and Science. We also prepared successful 11 plus students who gained entry to Grammar schools.
EMS Tutoring, provides superb one to one tutoring assistance, boosting confidence, helping students pass exams and significantly improving their academic grades. We help all levels; 11plus, SATs, KS2, KS3, GCSE, ’A’ level.
Experienced Teachers and tutors from among the top academic performers in the Milton Keynes area.
Our tutoring model includes the leadership of experienced teachers who supervise year 13 and university students in assisting the tutees. This has proven to be a very effective method to build confidence, elevate motivation and most of all it facilitates positive interaction between the tutees and young ‘role models’ who have recently earned exceptional grades in GCSE/A level exams or, are currently attending University. Our tutors are brilliant at communicating with younger students because – not so long ago – they were going through similar challenges.
EMS Tutoring is recognised by Milton Keynes Council’s Ethnic Minority Achievement (EMA) Network, as one of the supplementary schools in Milton Keynes and noted as serving ethnic minorities and disadvantaged students. Our efforts are also supported by the MK Community Foundation.
We’d love the opportunity to tutor your child and demonstrate why our exceptional service sets us apart from the rest of the field.
