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.
Focus on explaining the topics to yourself from different angles, don't worry about getting it precisely correct at first, you can refine it later. You should be able to comfortably tell little narratives about how things work the way they do. Notice when things start to make sense, and seek to create that environment as often as possible. Being self-reflective of your learning is just as important as the learning itself.
I have seen a noticeable difference in her effort and attitude over thee last couple of weeks. Something seems to have clicked in to place and she is far more willing to work in both lessons and in completing her homework. She is also more open learning and less inclined to talk herself out of being able to complete her work.
Victoria experienced some difficulty with the more advanced aspects of the recent trigonometry topic but, to her credit, has done well to keep on top of this as well as other topics which has translated into her good results in her assessments. Victoria has also expressed concern about her timing, especially in English in-class assessments. To improve, Victoria can undertake practice responses under timed conditions.
I'd like to report that George thinks Chirag is "so smart" . He is doing the work Chirag leaves him and is definitely more confident. I find him to always be punctual and polite and am very happy we found him.
We are very happy with Katie and her style. She is giving Blythe confidence and this week Blythe has completed her homework with much less assistance!
Sessions are going really well. Hasnat and Charlotte are building a good rapport. She is very happy with the sessions, and they are communicating well. So all good!
