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.
Chase is good in basic concepts of math at his level. Further, he has efficient skill of talking aloud while solving his problems. However, I am planning to develop his math foundation for years to come. Hence, more emphasis is being given on back checking, pen to paper and self questioning. Needs to be a bit calm, less hasty and should improve on his notes taking skills. In coming weeks I will try to put more focus on inclusive learning.
Each week, Zara has been tasked with completing more questions from sample Selective School Tests, and during tutorials we've covered the questions that Zara found more challenging. While I instructed Zara to complete a full timed test at a time for homework, she usually only completed half a test , this has been okay, as it gave enough time in the lesson to cover questions she found difficult. I have emphasized that she should attempt the last sample test as if it was the real test.
Rules and the identification of when and where to apply them, particuarly in algebra and in determining area/perimeter of shapes, both 2d/3d. Struggles with time-tables and quickly processing numbers at times, as well as the occasional slip with the OoO (order of operations) rules.
So far Katie has been prompt, personable and prepared. As you say it is very early days -we are only just getting to the point where we are clear on where she is at and where she needs to be.
Yes we are happy with Kavindu. Emily seems more confident with one on one home tutoring than class tutoring. thanks
He's here now, drinking miso and walking Em through Pythagoras (poor sole). It's all good. She appreciates this time and enjoys his learning insights so that's a winner.
