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.
Maddi is good at talking aloud when completing problems in lessons. She always tries to give each problem a go, but is willing to say when she doesn't understand something. Maddi is encouraged to use the working out space more efficiently in her workbook.
Glen seems to be operating at a mathematical standard which is above that of his class, as he doesn't have much trouble answering several questions I have given him which are likely more difficult than what he is doing at school. He will still occasionally become distracted, but stays on task much more and works through problems at a faster rate.
Back checking is an important aspect to improve accuracy and need to be strengthened. Also, solving algebraic expressions still results in some mistakes so more practice of solving algebraic equations is required.
We are very happy with Amanat. My son enjoys his sessions with him and that is a huge indicator for me as a parent. Amanat is so lovely and approachable with any questions I have and I like his commitment to my sons learning even though he is busy himself, nothing is ever an issue. I would recommend your business to other people and especially Amanat.
I am extremely happy with Nicky's tutoring. She instantly developed a lovely rapport with my daughter Bonnie. Nicky is very patient and great at explaining maths concepts in a way that is easy for Bonnie to understand. I am already seeing a much more positive attitude to maths in Bonnie and she feels more confident to do maths lessons at school. We got a good one!
Oscar is learning more from Sean than he is in the classroom. Sean is very patient and has established rapport.
