A homework club at Aylesbury Library has returned for the new year to provide support for pupils and their parents.

The club, which has been attended by pupils from foundation level to GCSE with a range of subjects, takes place on Tuesday evenings.

Elizabeth Adonu, 40, who lives in Aylesbury, runs the club and she also helps pupils at various libraries in Luton.

She said: “I want to help those that are a bit lost and it takes the pressure off the parents.

“When you put children together, they tend to do better.

“They get to see other people learning and that helps them.”

“I help mainly with English and Maths but it is more about motivation.

Mrs Adonu, whose two children, 11 and 9, go to school in Aylesbury, has a degree in Nursing and Psychology, as well as a Masters degree, and wrote a children’s book in 2012.

Branch manager at Aylesbury Library Deborah Evans said: “We are very happy to have her here.

“She had a number of children last term and she is very keen on helping more.”

The club meets every Tuesday during school term time between 4.30pm and 6.30pm at the Walton Road library.
