September 2021 - The family-run tutoring school »weiter-bilden GbR« led by Manuel and Rainer Fischer takes a big step and takes over the renowned »Lernstudio in Elberfeld« , which has been established for over ten years. The premises are located directly in the city centre and are easily accessible by public transport.
Expansion of the product range
“This is an excellent opportunity and a great challenge for us at the same time”, says Manuel Fischer, one of the two directors of the tutoring school. “Opportunity, because we now have the chance to expand our product range and appear locally with our own premises. Challenge, because from now on there is much more to do organisationally! After all, together with my father, I plan and organise everything alone in the background!” Fischer continues.
Group size: Maximum of three pupils
In addition to the individual tutoring previously offered to children from socially weaker families, group tutoring can now also be offered in the new »Lernstudio Elberfeld«. In contrast to other schools in this sector, group tuition is conducted with a maximum of three participants. “A larger group does not make sense from a pedagogical point of view”, Manuel Fischer emphasises. In the group constellation, care is also taken to ensure that it is homogeneously composed and – if possible – includes not only the same subject but also the same grade.
Teaching staff will be taken on
Not only the premises at Wall 1 in Elberfeld, but also the teaching staff of twelve as well as all the pupils looked after there could be taken over by the Fischers. “That is a great advantage”, Rainer Fischer knows. “Many things that have to be done at the beginning of such a project, such as recruiting teachers or acquiring potential pupils, are no longer necessary. Beyond that, everything can stay the same for teachers and students alike. Apart from the fact that Manuel and I now run the Elberfeld Learning Studio.” A win-win situation for all involved.
