It takes a lot to do well in biology. Moving up the curriculum can be a challenge and if students don't jump in with both feet it's easy to fall behind. Catching up while others move on to a completely different area can cause a serious drop in motivation. While most students manage to stay afloat and get the grades they want, it doesn't have to be such an uphill battle.

The proof is always in the action, to get an idea of how tutoring works in practice check out some feedback from tutors. Typically tutors focus on strategies needed to make progress, what's going well and what needs improvement. Of course, every tutor has their own unique style that is tailored to your child's specific needs.
He needs to practise on talking aloud as he writing the methods of the problem and also the problems in step bystep order so he knows when back checking where he is doing his mistakes. Also Mariano needs improve on his self questioning as well.
Max is very positive during our sessions together. Max also puts in great amount of effort to his exams and yearly tests. He has maintained fine work habit, but can do better with 'workings'.
Still making small mistakes in calculations, although this has improved. I've noticed that Ruby is a lot more attentive when evaluating her answers. Working with negative numbers and integers was a challenge for Ruby but she has responded well. With practice this year I am confident she will improve. Converting percentages to fractions and vice versa was also initially challenging. This has improved as she has become more familiar with common conversions, ie 20% is 1/5.
Thomas got 83% in each of his 2 Maths exams in the last week, (he went from 97 % to 50 % which made us think of tutoring) but for me its not the mark , it's the fact that he is happy and confident and really looking forward to his tutor time. It has done such a lot for his confidence Big thanks to Gabrielle!
We are all very happy with Rebecca. Myself, my husband and especially Grace, which is wonderful. Rebecca and Grace's school teacher have spoken via email and are working together. I think it is too early to see any real progress, as you said we would expect to see a difference in the next couple of months. But for now we are glad Grace is getting the help she needs while enjoying the company of Rebecca.
Mitch has been so wonderful with Nick and is doing an amazing job tutoring Nick, especially getting Nick focused on completing his maths homework. He has worked with Nick so well and has established a great working relationship with him. His patient demeanor is certainly a strong attribute and has made tutoring for Nick so much easier. Nick has commented several times that 'he has learnt more with Mitch today than he has all week with his teacher'.
