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.
This month, Kyle has worked extremely hard to improve on his Maths. He has identified the areas in which he needs help in. Part of the problem is identifying where you need help. Kyle understands that it is okay to make mistakes, provided he is learning from them. Various techniques such as self-checking, pen to paper methods and talking aloud have seemed to help him. Furthermore, the software CAMI seems to have helped him as he is showing signs of improvement every week.
Something I've noticed lately is that she hasn't been doing all of her homework as she says it's repetitive and, while it's great that she feels confident in her understanding of the content, practicing is key in maths and it really goes a long way in avoiding careless mistakes on exams and such, but in general has a pretty good work ethic.
She is occasionally using strategies other than finger counting and that will be her next area to work on - strategies without hundred charts or number lines and strategies that are faster than counting by 1s including hop on, add 10, friends of 10 etc. Sometimes she is confusing herself e.g. confusing division with subtraction, but she is enjoying the structure of SURF maths.

Ben continues to have great rapport with Kai and I think he even looks forward to the lessons which I can tell give him much more confidence.
Sarah is finding the tutoring with Shabana very helpful. Sarah has has three tutoring sessions and Shabana has been explaining concepts or questions which Sarah found confusing. I really like the way Shabana interacts with Sarah and how she keeps reminding her about the importance of practising.
I am very pleased to provide feedback. Matthew has been outstanding, polite, punctual and an excellent tutor. He is an asset to your business and please pass on our commendation.
