A love of teaching inspired two sisters to set up their own tuition business in 1997. Now, celebrating their 20th year in business.
To celebrate and keeping with their strong values of improving literacy, a competition was formed to seek out children story writers from the Banbury area..
Group 7 – 10 years – lst Archie Lannigan, 2nd Joshua Kennard, 3rd Elizabeth Denton.
Group 11 – 14 years – lst Peter Thompson, 2nd Deepa James, 3rd Charlie Waite.
The winners all received book tokens from Waterstones with varying degrees of monetary value.
“We have always loved teaching but wanted to be self employed. In 1985, I had a sudden flash of inspiration.
I had heard so many times that education needed to return to The Three Rs. I knew that we could provide it.
Due to personal circumstances, my dream had to be put on hold for a few years.
In 1997 The Three Rs Tuition was launched. At the time, quite a few people commented that it would not work and it wouldn’t last!”
“I knew that it was going to be an excellent business and the chance to change children’s lives. I have loved every moment of it and it has been so rewarding. Only the other day, we met one of our very early clients who came up to us and wanted us to know what a great impact we had made on her children’s lives.”
“We really enjoyed reading the stories for the competition. It was a great way to celebrate 20 years in business.”
“It was very exciting to organise the competition. Encouraging children to read for pleasure and using their imagination to write stories is very important.”
