We have all had the experience of a "bad teacher" and we know it's not pleasant. Often the teacher is simply a bad match for that particular student rather than being a "bad teacher" in general but in either case the student has a serious problem. This is why many parents contact us for a private tutor - their child just can't "get it" when their teacher is teaching. It's incredible how one explanation results in more confusion whereas another results in that...

It's incredible how one explanation results in more confusion whereas another results in that "aha" feeling we all love so much! It is really a matter of getting the "right" tutor and not the "best" one. We see this every day in our work. A tutor might have hundreds of hours of experience and might have received dozens of testimonials from students, however, even such a tutor doesn't click with all students. Every tutor gets bad feedback sometimes. It's all about getting the right fit and this is what we do!

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.
All good - A good skill to continuously improve on for the exam would be 'good correction' To practice, redo any wrong questions that come up when marking homework questions and consciously take note of where you got it wrong.
Winnie is a sloe learner and needs more personal attention and time to understand things. She needs a lot of practice however, as she isn't able to complete a lot of homework, I restrict to giving her a few problems so that she can atlas complete them. she is quite shy as well. However, I have noticed that once she has understood a concept/topic and practiced it thoroughly, she is quite confident about it and is able to do it quite well.
What she needs to work on right now is her mental calculation skills. I found Anisha tended to use finger counting. I would suggest that she could deliberately practise her mental calculation. And I hope that she could learn the 9*9 times table by heart.
Sean has been a blessing, firstly gaining James trust and allowing him to open up in a safe environment and confront his difficulty with Maths, and then by showing him that math has practical uses and that there is nothing to fear. Without Sean's guidance James would not have progressed so far this year, and we are truly grateful. I wish Sean all the best with his studies and what I am sure will be a successful career.
Corey is enjoying his tutoring with Lital she motivates him and visually works with materials for him which seems to be working. He has only had 3 sessions so over time hoping to see some success.
Kirra is really benefiting from Payal already so we are very pleased! Exams start next week so hopefully just her confidence boost will help and then by Nov she should really see results. Thank you once again!
