Based in Laindon, Essex, I provide small group tuition aimed at anyone trying to achieve that allusive C grade in maths or higher. It is therefore open to school children (year 9 to 11), college students and adults. Why small group tuition? I know what you are thinking…”Is small group tuition as effective as one-to one teaching?”
In my experience (9 years) it’s better: For most, group tuition, especially those with small class sizes of 6 or less, tend to be more effective in encouraging and enabling your child to learn more, and learn better. I use the dynamics of small groups to reduce the spotlight (mind blank) of one to one, whilst encouraging confidence-boosting group work.
Developing diligent, highly-motivated and self-confident children. In order to place you or your child in the correct group we will have a short initial conversation (email or phone) where by I will need to know what paper you/your child is sitting (foundation or higher), what grade you/they are currently achieving and what grade you/they are aiming for. From this I will recommend an initial group, however, this may be subject to change. Many larger tutoring agencies offer an initial assessment but selecting the correct group is more complex than this.
It is not only dependent on current ability, strengths and weaknesses but preferred learning styles and personalities. Therefore after the initial session or two I may recommend an alternative group. It is also possible that after some time with me your/your child’s needs may change and once again I will recommend an alternative group. Should you have any questions please contact me I would be happy to discuss them further.
Availability: Tuesday and Wednesday all day.
