yipiyap (AMM Learning) was established in September 2012 to harness the talents of high achieving gap year students – their academic ability, interpersonal skills, enthusiasm and aspiration – and give them the opportunity to support Primary and Secondary pupils who require extra help in Maths, English and Science.
yipiyap is built on the ethos that children often benefit hugely from a relatively small amount of individual attention and that lack of confidence is often the basis for underachievement.
The challenge for teachers is to provide this individual attention to every pupil while dealing with all the necessary administrative calls on their time. Often, despite every effort on the part of teaching staff, some children do not progress at the expected rate in class and whilst external private tuition is effective, it is simply not available to all.
yipiyap seeks to address this imbalance.
The support is delivered via in-school tuition during the school day, either by extractions or working with teachers to support individuals within the class – giving a high level of personalised help and continually boosting confidence.
Tutors can also deliver Alternative Provision, Saturday schools, holiday exam revision, Y6 transition events and any other area in which a school needs additional subject support.
