Justin Craig, and the concept of Easter revision courses, was established in 1981 by Marilyn Craig. Having done some private tuition around the kitchen table, she was asked by more and more students for exam revision coaching until she ran out of time.
Justin Craig Revision Courses
Then a small group of students asked her to help them as a group – this was so successful, far more effective than one-to-one tuition and much less expensive for the students.
Many requests from parents ‘at the school gates’ were received to organise small group tuition in a variety of subjects paving the way for Justin Craig Easter revision courses.
Tens of thousands of students have since attended Justin Craig revision courses in order to prepare for, and maximise, their performance in their GCSE, AS (A Level Year 1) and A2 (A Level Year 2) exams.
Justin Craig continues to be fanatical about revision and is committed to continually improving the quality and accessibility of our revision courses for all our students.
Easter Revision Courses
Besides increasing the number of Easter revision courses, in response to popular demand, we have also introduced several new courses to meet the changing needs of our students and to reflect the annual public examination cycle. These include February half-term, Easter Revision, May Half Term Revision and Christmas/New Year Revision.
Why choose Justin Craig?
As we are passionate and specialist providers of GCSE, AS and A2 (A level) revision courses, it is very difficult to give one reason why you should choose Justin Craig revision courses. We do not believe in resting on our 30+ year track record, though we hope this goes some way in helping you choose a reputable and trusted partner to assist your son or daughter through this very important time.
Whilst there is no one reason why our students and parents choose Justin Craig to be that trusted partner, extensive surveys and research suggests some of the most important factors include:
The cornerstone of our business! All Justin Craig revision courses are taught by tutors who have demonstrated their ability to combine expert subject knowledge with excellent communication skills. Equally importantly, all of our tutors share our enthusiasm for revision and desire to support and ensure all of our students achieve the best examination grade they are capable of.
Guaranteed small class sizes: excellent tutors can only do their best work if they have quality time with their students. We therefore have an average class size of six students, allowing our tutors to tailor classes to individual students’ needs.
Depending on its type, a Justin Craig revision course includes 6, 12, 14 or 18 hours of study time, all of which is with their tutor in the classroom. We believe it is important not to dilute the students’ revision time and therefore their experience, by including exam tests, workshops or lectures. Our determination to remove any barriers to learning even extends to our tutors, and so we work hard to ensure our tutors only do what they are best at – teach!
We believe it is important that our students feel able to influence what their revision programme includes. Whilst it would be easier to ask our tutors to deliver a standard revision programme, we believe it is important that students focus on revising the topics they most need, rather than what is convenient to teach.
Many of our students tell us that they engage in our revision courses, not just because our tutors are necessarily better than their own teachers at school, but because the Justin Craig experience is different to their every day school one.
All of our lessons are informal with tutors and students all being on first name terms – with sweatshirts and jeans being commonplace. The phrase ‘a change is as good as a rest’ is certainly true when it comes to Justin Craig courses.
Our priority is ensuring we provide a quality revision experience for all of our students; this will never change! We do however recognise that our parents also expect value for money.
We are one of the most competitively priced providers of revision course or exam support in the UK, and strongly believe our courses represent excellent value for money, particularly as the dynamic created in small groups can often be more effective than a private tutor.
