"Learning to learn is life's most important skill"
- Tony Buzan
Learning should be a holistic experience. We believe that this happens in the right environment, when students use thinking skills with ease. We aim to facilitate the learning process in a relaxed and friendly environment where lessons are purposeful but also enjoyable.
In our small group learning environment, students are encouraged to question and ask “why?” in order to gain a better understanding of the, admittedly, difficult concepts they are encountering.
We believe developing effective learning skills and a robust knowledge base in Year 7 and 8 and accelerating these processes in Year 9 and 10 is the right way to achieve good grades in GCSE.
Early years of Secondary School are the best time to impart good study habits and skills to achieve students’ full potential in school.
With our many years of experience as teachers and examiners for UK exam boards, we have a detailed understanding of the current curriculum, for instance, the shift in emphasis from fact-based learning towards the application of understanding and problem-solving skills.
Consequently, we tailor our lessons to practice and develop these exact skills.
Don’t wait till Year 10 and 11 to sign up for tuition. Learning problem-solving skills at an early age makes things much easier further down the line and really prepares students for advanced study of professional courses such as medicine, engineering and law.
Results have been boosted
My three children have attended MS Learning Circle since 2010 in age order. Their GCSE's and A-level results have been boosted and not once in all these years have any of them said "I do not want to go" top marks to Swarna and her top team of tutors.

I would highly recommend
The chemistry sessions were extremely helpful in allowing me to understand key topics within the a level. The sessions gave me the opportunity to ask lots of questions and therefore improved both my knowledge and confidence in the subject.

The tutors at the Learning Circle work hard to understand the specific needs of their pupils. The tutoring that my son received during his GCSE studies was invaluable. The sessions were tailored to support his individual academic needs, yet they were also enjoyable and the they massively developed his motivation and confidence too.

Every session that I had at the learning circle helped me consolidate my learning. The tutors there want the very best for you and are great, not only at providing support during the lessons, but also at helping you to organise your further study when revising alone in order to ensure that you achieve your full potential.

We approached MS Learning Circle for extra help in tackling the new GCSE syllabus for Triple Science. The teaching was outstanding and I was especially impressed by the care taken to tailor the work, and the method of delivery, to the individual needs of the student. My son worked with Swarna for a year and a systematic approach was applied, breaking the course down into manageable sections, to enable the content of each exam to be covered several times. Invaluable exam technique advice was given showing him how to “hunt out the marks” in each question. Plenty of resources were made available and Swarna went out of her way to fit in extra lessons, including booster sessions on the day, and also to allow my son to revise at the centre. The atmosphere here is of focused learning and this really helped my son to tackle the exams with a good knowledge base and the confidence that he was well prepared and capable of doing his very best.

The method of learning in the tuition centre was very effective. At the start of the 1st year, we began doing AS theory, and covered it quickly, allowing more time to revise it and go through questions which greatly aided me for achieving my predicted grades. The second year was similar. We managed to cover a lot of the theory quickly. This left alot of time to go over a vast amount of exam questions, which was extremely beneficial for exams. Ms Swarnas teaching style proved to be very effective for both my GCSE and A-Level exams. She also provided guidance for my UKCAT and personal statement, helping me get an offer to study medicine.
