Approaches to Tutoring
Different students require different approaches to learning and so I work hard to tailor my sessions according to the needs of the student. In addition to one-to-one online tutoring, I also offer paired tuition (with someone of a similar age and ability) and small group tuition (Maximum of 6 per class). I offer term-time and holiday lessons: one-off sessions, short term or long term according to the needs of the student. Please send me a message if you would like further information and prices. Some areas that I normally focus on include:
· GCSE specimen and past paper questions
· Focus on a specific text/question
· Controlled Assessments / Coursework / Essays – planning, writing, proof-reading
· Achieving a Grade 4/5
· Achieving a Grade 8/9
· Analysis of set texts
· Addressing individual Assessment Objectives
· Any aspect of KS2 and KS3 Literacy including Year 6 SATS preparation
