After school tuition
Providing regular support, outside school hours during
evenings or weekends, is the core activity for One to
One Tuition. This tends to limit the geographical area
I can cover.
Though exceptions are always possible, generally
support is offered within the broad geographic area
of Bristol and Bath.
Most school subjects are covered and weekly appointments
are normally agreed at the same time each week to fit
I tend to see students at their home however other
arrangements are possible, particularly for mature students
with their own transport.
When pupils are moved down a set at school confidence
and performance can be damaged. Particularly towards
the end of year 9 being placed in a Foundation GCSE
set may be demotivating. Knowing the range of potential
grades you can achieve at the end of year 11 has been
limited can leave you feeling lost.
Regular tuition improves confidence and performance
and with a little extra effort schools can be persuaded
to re-assess setting decisions so that higher grades
can be achieved.
Moving to a new school can mean a change in expected
standards. When students find their new school has much
higher expectations for performance than their old school,
regular one to one tuition can assist in the achievement
of higher grades.
