Tutoring Approach

Initial discussions with the carer/parent and student to find out what their expectations and requirements are for the tuition sessions. Discuss perceived strengths and weaknesses. Short assessment of the student's capabilities to see what their levels of achievement are across a range of topics. Over the following sessions deal with weaknesses to improve the students level of achievement and confidence in the areas identified. Sessions will be tailored to the individual needs of the student.
