"Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime". This pretty much sums up our maths tutoring philosophy. Year after year students are bombarded with an increasing amount of content. Most students are always in catch up mode, trying to keep up with the class, cramming in some revision time right before exams, feeling anxious and unconfident. Of course it is possible to do well this way, but it is like using a hammer to cut down a tree instead of an axe. There's a...

Of course it is possible to do well this way, but it is like using a hammer to cut down a tree instead of an axe. There's a better way to succeed academically. This is where we come in.

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.
Jeyda has been continued to use talking aloud and pen to paper, particularly with algebra questions, which is great to see. I've continued to emphasise coping with anxiety skills for tests (like listening to music, avoiding talking to others about what they have or haven't studied, making study plans to be prepared early), because I think her last maths result (36%) was due to a lot of stress mistakes.
Jared's attitude is still very good, as he is eager to get the help from me that he needs. He even told me he was proud of himself for overcoming some of the areas he was struggling with, which is great to hear! He was a little bit lazy with homework at the start of the month but has improved and caught up on anything he didn't do.
The problem areas and gaps for Aaliyah are mainly to do with independent study in order to practice the skills used during lessons. This would consolidate the skills and allow them to be used in future situations.
Hi, Ruhail has been great and his flexibility has helped enormously. He spent 3.5 hours with Casey last weekend as she had a test she was very concerned about. Casey did much better in her test than she would have done and we are already over the moon. Please pass on our thanks.
Yes, we are very pleased that Sophia likes Rebecca and the tutoring seems to be going well. Rebecca obviously has patience and takes the time to explain things so Sophia can follow them and work through the maths, which is exactly what we wanted. The problem with the school is they move along so fast that there is not enough practice time, and we (the parents) are not familiar with what they teach so we can't just help out quickly; we have to re-learn it ourselves first, and then we're probably not good at explaining clearly. That's why it is great having Rebecca who can obviously explain things in a way Sophia understands. The main thing is that Sophia sees herself as '˜no good at maths', but when something is explained so she understands it, she is very pleased when she can get the right answers. A lot of it is a confidence thing I think, and also her school maths teacher has been quite negative about her work; so hopefully the tutoring will rebuild some of Sophia's general confidence over time, which would be great. Sophia will never be a star at maths, but if she can just get passes instead of always negative marks and comments from school, we will be quite happy with that. Sophia is very good at English/Hums and art; maths is her weak area, and we are very pleased (and actually surprised) that she is sitting through an hour of maths tutoring each week without complaint. We did not know how it would go; we tried one other tutor a few months ago , a retired male maths teacher - and she hated it. So this time we are very happy.
So far so good with Tim. Tim is now tutoring both my kids and both are really happy with him. Results will show in the months to come. It is early days but we are very happy so far.
