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.
We used the following learning strategies: talking aloud, back checking, pen to paper and seeking understanding. We focused on back checking as Maya can be prone to making "silly mistakes" in the rush of attempting a problem.
Always has a great attitude and works diligently in our time together. He has made it a habit now to bring in questions from his workbook or talked about in school that he doesn't quite understand which is great. He comes to every lesson prepared and wastes no time getting straight into the topic which is great to see.
Finding missing angle - Transverse and Parallel lines Exterior Angle Theorem - Angle on the outside of a Triangle Luke sometimes struggles with finding missing angles in transverse and parallel lines. Luke needs to step back and look at the diagram as a whole and identify what steps he needs to take to be able to reach the missing angle. Through more practice of the different angle theorems that he has learnt he will be able to identify the steps to take to reach the missing angle more easily.
After the last session Mia said she was happy with Sam and didn't want to change to anyone else. Sam is very bright and Mia will never be an advanced Maths student but they seem to have worked out how to communicate and that just builds her confidence so she doesn't see a difficult question and get overwhelmed. Sam is also very punctual and communicates well with us as well. Even the dog likes him now.
Esme has connected with her tutor and is progressing well. We are pleased with the progress so far.
Tutoring seems to be going well. I think both Matthew and Abbey are starting to settle into a routine. Abbey has started to apply some of the methods Matthew has shown her to school work. She has come home from school a couple of times now, saying she was asked a question during maths time and got it right. Which, of course, she was very happy about! Within the next few weeks, I will receive Abbey's report for semester 1. I will show Matt, so he has even more understanding of her needs. I'm looking forward to seeing what they achieve in the coming months.
