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...
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 "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.
Back checking, pen to paper, self questioning, ok to be wrong, confidence, note taking, good corrections, seeking understanding, talking aloud, transfer skills - she is quite competent with these learning strategies and has improved in confidence, back checking, note taking and self questioning.
Especially when preparing for tests, Gabby is encouraged to make summary notes of all content and do practise questions under timed conditions. She should ask her teacher or email myself if she has any questions regarding any topics that she is unsure of.
Alessia needs to work on back checking her work to avoid mistakes. She needs to learn to back check her work and take her time in understanding the word problems to avoid misinterpretation.
Jonathan is extremely happy with Jessica and how she has supported him in the three sessions they have already had together. His words following their initial session were, 'I wish she was my Maths teacher at school. She explains things so well.' I was very pleased that Jonathan felt this comfortable with Jessica. The issue of school holidays came up and I asked if sessions stop or continue during this time and Jessica said it was up to Jonathan and I. I asked Jonathan what he would like to do and he actually said he would like to continue the sessions during the holidays. I was surprised and very grateful that Jonathan feels this way, so we will continue through the holidays.
