Our approach

At the Basisclub and Dutchclub we offer professional tutoring to students in primary education. We aim to create an encouraging environment with room for fun and play. As the students experience success, their self-confidence grows. Our personal attention ensures a tailor-made experience that bolsters their strengths.

As a small-scale organization, Basisclub provides a safe (learning) environment with a cozy atmosphere. A committed team of familiar faces is always there to receive the students. In order to provide tailor-made solutions for each student we strive to keep close communication with parents and schools.

Learning through play ensures that learning becomes fun and happens unconsciously. Our approach is to motivate and energize with ample room for fun. Challenging and varied teaching methods are used that match the interests of the student. During the afternoon group sessions we also offer snacks during the break.

Attention is paid to writing up (personal) learning plans and evaluations. We use appealing remedial materials that match the learning objectives and methods at school. We coordinate with everyone involved (school, parents and the student), respond quickly and are easily accessible  

Our approach to our students is very encouraging. We compliment them on their efforts and skillful approach. We give constructive feedback including lots of praise. The aim is to let the children experience success so that they gain more self-confidence. We do our best to put a smile on everyone's face with the help of personal attention, “power cards” and the occasional joke.

Club at school

The Basisclub offers schools support in tutoring primary school students who with the proper support have a better chance to reach their true potential. Through personal and professional attention, children get a better grip on subjects that are difficult for them and/or the students are challenged to improve their approach to tackling different tasks.

Our team

We are very happy with our Basisclub team. We are all motivated by the same goal to bring out the best in each child through a positive and personal approach. Our team is made up of people with a diverse professional background, but we are united in our love for children. A lot of time is taken to prepare for the lessons. We also organize a monthly intervision meeting where we discuss children to better support them and make sure the professional development of our team ranks high on the agenda.
