My thoughts on home tuition

“I believe that successful home tuition is all about the relationships you build both with the pupil and their parents/caregivers.”

“Tuition is based on a trusting relationship between the pupil and the teacher. It is about getting to know the strengths and weaknesses of your pupil and planning learning to meet those needs.  It is very important that pupils experience success in their learning – children flourish with praise – and also have the opportunity to ‘go wrong’ in a safe environment.”

“I have built some wonderful relationships with my tutees, some of whom still keep in touch many years on and let me know what they are up to!”
