SUCCESS STORIES

 

David

‘My Success was being accepted into Sixth Form. I worked my socks off in the specific GCSE’s that I wanted to study at A-Level. I achieved the grades, got accepted and this increased my confidence for the future.’

David

‘Christina achieved the Ruby award at the end of Year 4 and is now only 6 points off the silver award in Year 5. This is an impressive achievement due to the hard work required.

Attending Success4All has most likely had an impact on how Christina faces and completes tasks. Due to doing extra work outside of school she has realised that rewards only come with hard work.’

Tanya

‘Tutoring has been a platform that has helped me to build the skills I need for my future. This helped me to socialise with others in a professional yet relaxed environment through communicating with new people including parents, other volunteers, children and young people and the coordinators. In this community I feel I have been able to expand my level of confidence through the responsibilities I have been given.’

Tanya

‘I like Success4All because they help me with my work. I work on Maths and do different topics every session – I understand more. I can go back to topics I haven’t done in a while. The Tutors help me by being understanding with my work. I am proud that am doing good in Maths.’

Aisha
Hassan

‘At Success4All I have been getting more support by the Tutors which means the work in school is easier because I go over it again and again so it sticks into my head. I feel more confident in myself because my Tutor has said: ‘you can do it’ and ‘be confident in yourself’ which has helped me. I want to be a doctor or an engineer in the future because I want to help people around the world. I feel more confident that I can do this in the future now.’

Hassan

‘Ali Azlan had moved up in both Maths and English and is now doing year 5 work. He feels more confident in comprehension and completes it faster to a greater result shown through his improvement in marks.’

Abbas

‘Recently at school, I achieved an A* in Business Studies. My target was a B, however, by putting in the effort and working hard I exceeded my target.

Business was one of my weaker subjects as it was quite challenging, especially the longer questions which required more detail.

I’m glad I started to come to the Learning Hub as now I know how much I’ve improved.

I was pleasantly surprised that the sessions were not too strict as this means that you can get on with your work in your own time.’

Abbas
Emily

‘I’ve always wanted to work with children and I was looking for opportunities outside the norm – I came across Camp America so I looked into it. I think Success4All helped me get there though the opportunity of working with children. Just seeing the children in here and knowing that there’s children in need all over the world and seeing the opportunity to travel as well, I had to take it.

Emily

‘I enjoy coming to Success4All because I learn new things and it reduces stress when I don’t understand things. Plus, I love meeting the Volunteers! I can definitely tell I have been getting better at telling time, and at doing my times tables by using the cover/copy method. This has happened through the support from the Tutors.’

Alishma
Zakir

During our Benwell Learning Hub, Zakir wrote a poem about school. At the end of the session, he presented it to the whole group and read it out loud.

‘I wrote the poem because we were doing poems in schools. I wanted to continue on that. My favourite part is the Go-Kart bit because I really like driving. I liked presenting my poem because everyone was amazed. My next poem is going to be about chicken because its yummy!’

Zakir

‘Success4All has made me realise that I like working with children. Previously, I have completely ruled out the prospect of a teaching career, however after working with some of the children here weekly, it has made me reconsider. Aspects of volunteering I find particularly rewarding includes when they understand a topic after some difficulty at the start of the session.

Skills I have developed whilst being at Success4All includes improving my clarity whilst speaking/ teaching topics in hand. I have become more confident in communicating my knowledge and ideas.’

Holly
Tashan

‘At Code Club and the Learning Hub the Tutors are talented – they are funny and more relaxed like Parents.

It’s helped me on education and gets me ready for exams and tests and gives me practice.

I’m not worried about my exams because at least I have this club. I am proud of my levels, it’s because of Success4All and that’s why I’m getting better and stronger.

I want to do Chemistry in the future because it is useful to the world – I will learn about volcanoes.

I struggled in English with concentration and confidence but now I have improved.’

Tashan
