Information for Parents and Students:

Tutoring differs from teaching in a school because the skills and approach needed are:

  • one-to-one personal interaction
  • flexibility in teaching style to fit each student
  • tutoring at a pace to fit each student
  • often tutoring topics which were not understood in school
  • practising learning and exam techniques

A good relationship tends to develop between tutor and student so that the association is one of friend and mentor.

We usually have three kinds of tutoring arrangements:

Weekly tuition: This regular one-hour tuition is a supplement to a student’s schooling and ensures that the student understands and learns the subject week by week as he/she attends school. It can compensate for insufficient individual attention due to large class size, difficulty in grasping concepts or poor motivation.

Catch-up sessions: These are useful to review the student’s grasp of a concept. They allow the student to “catch up” and to thoroughly understand a topic which was causing problems.

Exam preparation: This is useful before internal exams, mocks or formal exams. The tuition required will depend on the level such as GCSE or A level. Extra tuition is useful to reduce feelings of panic and loss of confidence. Exam techniques can be practised.

Tuition is not a quick-fix solution. The amount of tuition required will depend on the needs, aptitude and effort of each student.

Many students have dyslexia and this is usually no problem in one-to-one tutoring. If the student has special needs, these should be discussed to see if we can help.
