Evergreen Education offers flexible, personal tuition in core curriculum subjects and community arts and crafts workshops

Prior to founding Evergreen Education, Davinder Lally spent 25 years in senior teaching, training and assessment roles. That wealth of experience stood her in excellent stead in creating a new family business (with her son Rajar) that combines evening, weekend and holiday tuition for children with daytime adult education and arts and crafts workshops.

‘Evergreen was the result of two ideas coming together at the same time,’ recalls Rajar. ‘Firstly, we wanted to provide individually tailored Maths, English and Science classes for students aged six to 18. Those lessons can be aimed at preparing for exams such as the 11+, GCSEs, A-Levels and the International Baccalaureate. Secondly, local people expressed an interest in attending creative and employment-related language courses before the children arrive. We have already put on sewing, floristry and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and other subjects, such as embroidery, are being scheduled.’

A microbiologist, Davinder emigrated to Australia in 1986 and qualified as a teacher. Returning to the UK in 2003, she worked for Hounslow and Ealing councils, recruiting and training teaching assistants and becoming an adult education manager.

‘We assess every new student to identify areas that need attention and then devise a customised teaching plan that meets those needs and conforms to the National Curriculum,’ explains Davinder. ‘We never mix age groups and students work at their own pace in small classes (one-to-one is available) with experienced teachers who accommodate different learning styles.

‘The daytime programme offers adults the chance to learn new – or refresh lost – creative skills alongside more practical sessions, such as first aid and health and safety. In particular, the ESOL classes are in demand with foreign professionals (nurses, beauticians, nannies) who need to learn the vocational language of their job.’

Evergreen is now taking bookings for summer holiday workshops. ‘Children who learn with us are challenged, inspired and receive the personal support they need to reach their academic goals,’ says Davinder. ‘We make the process fun and, so far, every student has stayed with us after their first lesson. That’s so encouraging.’
