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...

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 "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.
Matthew whispers very quietly to himself when he works through problems. Although I can't understand exactly what he's saying, speaking to himself is still a good sign of him going through each step to solve a problem. When he doesn't understand something, he doesn't hesitate to ask, knowing I won't judge but won't always give him the answer straight away.
Jacob has a positive attitude to tutoring and seems to enjoy it much more now than when I first met him. He seems to have gain more confident in answering questions without asking me for hints or the answers. A good way to help him understand better and gain more confident is for him to help/teach his friends who are struggling in maths as well, which I have spoken to him about briefly. This way, he can improve on his skills as well as sharing the knowledge he has acquired over the past few months.
Matt has been able to display a strong understanding of the algebra topic we are currently completing. Gaps, however, are evident not through a lack of knowledge but through a lack of practice which I feel is Matt's major issue. I would like to see Matt put in more effort and hours to ensure that he is up to date and the content remains cemented.
We are very happy with John and with his tutoring. Caitlin's confidence with maths is growing already.
Sam has been great, easy to communicate and arrange times & dates has been great. Sam takes pride in his tutoring and is assisting Jacqueline with her studies. Thank you.
Ashleigh is working with Joshua nicely, thank you. They interact easily and Ash asks questions an feels comfortable with him.
