Our Story

Hi, we’re Mark and James, the founders of Teach Pips.

We started Teach Pips back in April 2020 and have loved developing the programme ever since. Whether it’s been preparing lessons or creating new learning opportunities, we’ve been driven by the knowledge that Teach Pips has the potential to support thousands of children, parents and schools. Our combined teaching experience of 35 years across public, private and international schools has allowed us to create an outstanding learning resource.

Teach Pips was founded to make learning as simple as possible. We recognise the challenges faced when supporting children’s learning. Terminology such as fronted adverbials, ellipsis and expanded noun phrases can seem confusing at times. With this knowledge in mind, we have created a bespoke program to guide children through the English National Curriculum.

What is Teach Pips?

Teach Pips is different.

Using our carefully planned lessons, all adults can teach children to write. This shared learning experience helps children make outstanding progress in writing and develops a positive learning routine.

The short, step-by-step lessons build a foundation of key writing skills which will improve your child’s writing. Our lessons provide you with terminology, questions and activities to promote purposeful and enjoyable learning. You can assess and track progress through our lesson map and quizzes.
